With video games now the biggest form of entertainment (thanks in part to breakout games like Fortnite) and the smartphone becoming increasing the device of choice, gamers’ mobile connections have a great deal of impact on their playing experience. To quantify this, Opensignal has developed a first of a kind metric and used it to rank the world’s top 100 countries for mobile Games Experience.
In one year mobile Video Experience has significantly improved in 59% of 100 countries analyzed. But the U.S. is lagging behind on mobile video as carriers face a spectrum crunch. Uniquely, Opensignal tests mobile video streaming at scale and does not estimate video experience based on speed tests or other indirect measurements.
Voice apps offer flexibility across a number of devices and networks, and have soared in popularity as smartphones become more and more ubiquitous.But what's the mobile user experience like on these voice apps on today's mobile networks?
There’s lots of confusion around 5G, in part because each U.S. carrier has taken a different initial approach to 5G. In this new analysis, Opensignal tested 5G in downtown areas of U.S. cities to quantify these differences in the early 5G services from AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon.

We saw a fierce competition between two operators — Vodafone and Orange — with awards split nearly equally. That said, the mobile network experience in Egypt is improving overall, but some of the greatest improvements were observed by users on the other two operators — WE and Etisalat — who also came neck-and-neck on several measures.
