What Should I do if Download Booster on S5 is Enabled but Doesn’t Download Contents?

Last Update Date : Apr 16. 2018

Download booster feature supports Hypertext Transmission Protocol (HTTP) 1.1 only.

It can be activated in 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’s not supported regarding to attached files of E-mail , Streaming service like Dropbox , Twitter.

It supports only for downlink under environment of Wi-Fi and LTE(NOT 3G) networks and works regarding to contents over 30MB. When speed difference of Wi-Fi and LTE occurs more than 5 times, download booster isn’t supported.
In the case the speed difference is big, it show rather inefficient situation on speed side if download booster
is applied.
