    Hello, I have faced up with really slow download/ upload speed on my iPhone 5 latest 6.1.4 while using latest dropbox application. My network speed is really good, downloading files from dropbox via pc speed is always +600Kbps, also i have iPad mini 6.1.3 and download/ upload speed is also really high. However somehow my iPhone is so slow at downloading/ uploading any files, takes three/four time more to download/ upload same file as doing with ipad or via PC o_O What it could be? application bug? Anyone also have faced up with this issue?

    It matters how fast dropbox servers are and how fast they can take info in. You have great internet but dropbox severs may be slow. I recommend using google drive. You get 5gb and it does the same exact thing as dropbox.

    That is strange. Maybe the iPad or pc has a faster wifi chip. IDK

    I have the same problem, it's incredibly slow on my iPhone 5, a bit slow on my iPad 2 but up/down is fast on my androids even when I use my iPhone as personal hotspot (to make sure it's not the iPhone that's slow).

    The iPads hardware is slower than the iPhone but Dropbox is still faster on it. Other apps runs much slower on the now very old device compared to the iPhone 5.

    I do not even use DropBox much since I have a couple of 1TB online storage accounts elsewhere but I did not see many options to upload from the iPhone 6+ Photos app. I had a 4.5 minutes video to upload and it is still uploading only half done after one hour on a 75Mbps up/down connection that is zipping in everything else. Very strange to see it this slow.
