    Yes it can. Android doesn't have artificial limitations on things like that like iOS does.

    Cool. Any idea if LTE will play back video at 1080 smoothly? I'm trying to figure out if it is a waste of money to get a 1080 IP camera vs. just a 720 one?

    Thanks.

    Probably not depending on the protocol. Even on a lan webcam streaming is usually not perfectly smooth. It has to do more with the stream than the amount of bandwidth on the phone.
