The 4G speeds in NYC were great and the easy hotspot function is a ease to setup.
Only snag we noticed: On several wifi networks the phone had trouble staying connected to some of our favorite streaming apps like Songza , Pandora and Stiicher for an extended period of time. While our other Android phone and Iphone connected on the same wifi network with no problems.
