    The title says it all really. If I put a pro camera on a P3A does it enable higher downlink speeds?

    Thanks

    Yes.

    However it does not make a difference! At least in my small batch testing :) A few folk on here say it does - yet don't provide proof - so it's their word right now against some actual data to reference off of!

    I'm still trying to figure out just exactly what the 10mbps over 2mbps downlink really offers. Less distance? Better video? Who really knows.


    Our test was with a P3A and P3P. Galaxy Tab Pro vs Galaxy Tab S

    Look at the comparison. The Galaxy Tab S maintains the SAME quality regardless if on P3A or P3P. The Tab Pro however is grainy and blurry, also regardless if on the P3A or P3P.


    Take note of the palm tree leaves, the bark between the driveway and grass and especially the sharpness of the white trim on the roofline above the garage!
