AT&T Removes Download Booster From The Galaxy S5

One of the most annoying things about carriers is that they tinker with a device's feature list before selling it to consumers. AT&T is doing just that with the new Samsung Galaxy S5 by removing 'Download Booster', an advertised feature of Samsung's new flagship Smartphone. Download Booster allows users to speed up their downloads by connecting to both data and WiFi at the same time, hence a boost in download speeds. But of course AT&T wants you to only download over data, given the high rates, to earn more bucks.

Does this affect your Galaxy S5 purchase decision? Would you ditch AT&T for another carrier due to this feature cripple? Share your views with us in the comments below.
