    Wow that not only looks good but the speed is great.
    I live in the sticks so no LTE for more than a yr. Still that screen looks great.

    FWIW (and perhaps why you heard there's a problem with the app) the tags are switched. Upload should be download, download should be upload. You should expect download to be faster than upload.
