I don't know but I feel it's very shady for Sprint to finally announce that they won't be putting a key cutting edge feature in the Galaxy S5 like download booster. I find it suspicious that it hasn't been mentioned until the afternoon before launch day. Many days after deposits and pre-orders have been placed. Not good Sprint, not good.
You can easily enable the download booster on your Galaxy s5 without rooting it with a few simple steps.
That’s all. You have now enabled the download booster feature on your galaxy S5. Enjoy !!
Is this Nova booster, an enhancer? The Booster in the S5 from Samsung will boost the speed by using the WiFi and LTE in the same time to download the same file. Fake boosters, will use one connection, WiFi or LTE to download the same file from different sources, this approach will not make a difference since your speed is still limited to your actual network performance.
DownLoad Booster is great if you have Unlimited Data and want to download large files (over 30MB) faster by using Wi-Fi and LTE networks at the SAME time (FASTEST internet PERIOD!!!) no other phones have this ABILITY (also Note 4) *(saw it at 105 Mbps) great for Games, Movies, etc. and great to watch YouTube.
I can't agree with you more,...Samsung made the s5 with download booster...its advertised..its part of the samsung galaxy s5..how and why in world would you remove that.. EPIC FAIL!!
I thought I would need this booster,But if you go to wifi in settings, then those three dots on upper right corner,Tap advanced, Then check smart switch... It switches between wi fi and mobile networks..... Isn't that the same as the booster?
Download booster is something most carriers went away with since it was not making much sense.
You had to be close to WiFi and LTE coverage to have both antennas work in the same time and up the speed.
Nowadays, if you are connected to a WiFi source, chances are you have great speeds.
Battery consumption was huge too.
