Report suggests AT&T variant of the Galaxy S5 is launching without the Download Booster feature

Samsung Download Booster

The AT&T variant of the Samsung Galaxy S5 is already reaching customers much before the expected April 11 shipping date. However, some users are already reporting some issues with the device. According to some screenshots sent by users of the newly released handset, it is seen to be missing the much discussed Download Booster feature.

This feature allows users to download files in excess of 30MB with a combination of standard WiFi and LTE, thus giving an unparalleled “boost” in download speeds. For the time being though, this feature has been confirmed to be absent from AT&T’s variant of the new Samsung flagship.

It’s odd that a feature like this would be disabled, but we’re guessing it has something to do with the carrier as it involves manipulating WiFi and LTE speeds. Luckily, it is said that this feature will be enabled by the carrier with the help of a software update in the future.

Does this affect your decision to buy the Galaxy S4 in any way? Let us know in the comments below.
