Even though Download booster feature on Galaxy Tab S is enabled, it doesn’t appear to download contents any faster. What’s the problem?

Last Update date : 2014.10.28



Under the following conditions, the Download booster does not work with Galaxy Tab S.



1. When you download large files, the device may heat up.

    If the device exceeds a set  temperature, the feature will turn off.


2. This feature supports Hypertext Transmission Protocol (HTTP) 1.1 only.

     So, It can be activated in Play Store, Samsung Apps, Samsung Video , YouTube,

     Play Movies, Play Games, Internet(S-Browser), Chrome (ChromeBrowser), Baidu etc.

     but NOT all applications.


    The feature cannot be used with other protocols, such as HTTPS or FTP.

    So, it does not support the download of E-mail attachments, and services such as

    Dropbox  or Twitter


3. It supports downlink when using Wi-Fi and LTE (and NOT 3G / 2G) networks


4. Only supported files over 30MB in size will be downloaded via Download booster
