    To all my fellow Android users, here is my set up:

    Samsung Note III running 4.4.2
    P2V+ and TX are running the latest updates as of today
    DJI app is updated as well

    So if I run 640, it is HORRIBLE! 320 will run but the quality is bad. Anyone have any fixes for this or experience?
    In my wifi advanced settings, I have everything unchecked. I also tried another Note 3 and it did the same thing.

    Any info would be great!

    Thanks guys!

    I've got HTC ONE and 640x480 is a tragedy.
    I'm gonna compare it today with my girlfriends iPhone and report back.

    ok..if you go into your settings/mobile networks/data, do you see anything about "automatic connections" or "connections optimizer"? if so, uncheck that.

    ok just tested my gf's iphone 4s against my htc one and iphone is much worse.
    at ten feets away on her iphone i was getting few seconds delay at 640x480 where on my htc one it works fine at very close range.

    Depends on the model of iPhone. If it wasn't a 4S, a 5 a 5S or a 5C it won't work. It will be laggy as hell. Processor on the older ones isn't fast enough.

    That should be ok. I have a 5 and use 640 @ 15fps. It works perfectly.

    I've had much better luck with the video lag/stutter since I downgraded to version 1.39.

    didnt try 15fps only 30
    to me responsiveness is more important than resolution

    I also use a note3 with at&t and my fpv is flawless at 640x480 15fps. Here is a screenshot of my advanced settings.
