    Ive done a search for this but have not seen this mentioned anywhere. I havent been able to tell if this applies to all videos or just certain ones. Certain videos Ive come across play at a different aspect ratio and quality relative to how you are connected.

    Just an example, watch this clip (30 seconds long) on wifi, then watch it on edge.

    This isnt some magnificent discovery, but its interesting nonetheless.

    Yes, this is been known since the phone shipped. They had to make two versions otherwise the edge connections would choke. Sorry but welcome to last month.
