What is the Download Booster and how do I enable it on my Samsung Galaxy Note 4?

The Download Booster is a feature that will allow your device to download large files (over 30 megabytes in size) faster by using a Wi-Fi connection and a mobile data connection simultaneously. Follow the steps below to enable the Download Booster.

 

Note: please keep in mind that your network operator will charge you for the data you transfer through a mobile data connection. You may have a monthly data allowance with your network operator as part of your contract with them or your network operator may charge you per megabyte of data you transfer. Please review your contract if unsure of how you're charged for using your mobile data connection.
