    I have been looking into Android Phones just to get a sense of what is out there, and there was one really cool feature called "Download Booster" on the Galaxy S5.

    From the Videos I have watched, and testing it on my friends S5 it works pretty well. We did two speed tests, one on my local home network and we got 40 down and 10 up. Then over Cellular we got 30 down and 8 up. Using Download Booster, we got 67 down and 16 up. Not too shabby.

    Now, the question. If Apple were to put in a feature like this into the iPhone would this be a hardware limitation of the 5s? Or could it be theoretically implemented in iOS 8?

    It prolly could be put in. But isn't the tmobile s5 the only version with the download booster? They disabled it for the other carriers didn't they?
