Most of the Smartphone user doesn't know that every mobile device has two processors. One is the main cpu and another one is baseband processor. The maximum internet speed completely depends upon these two processors. Some highend devices can achieve download speed upto 37Mbps.
Now most of the people around world using 3G and 4G internet. But there is also different download speed in 4G network. It happens due to the automatic band selection by the baseband processor in your smartphone. This baseband processor automatically pick the low frequency band for better network coverage in your phone as you move far from the Cellphone tower aka BTS (Base Transciever Station). If somehow you can manage to customize your band selection on mobile device to use the high frequeny range band (band-40). Then you can achieve the highest speed in that mobile network. This is possible in all smartphones, but there is no specific menu for this type of advanced level of network settings. This hidden network menu access varies for different manufacturers. So conclusion is band with higher frequency gives more speed and band with lower frequency gives better coverage. Choose according to your requirement.
