Just downloaded speedtest.net APP on my 822. Interesting results when connected to WiFi verses direct connection to VZW. Going to do more testing on my VZW connection as I am out and about today. I have a Samsung Network Extender from VZW at my house - not sure if that impacts the speeds (though download speeds were smokin').

It's a pretty nice looking app. Here are my results (top one is WiFi, other two are LTE):
I was amazed it was that fast. It's also impressive because I live somewhat in the country.

Nice LTE scores! I wonder how these would compare to AT&T? After all, the 920 should not be too different in terms of RAM/Processor, etc. - compared to the 822.
Ran a test last night when my son and I stopped by McDonalds. Funny how throttled back the WiFi download times are on that "free Wifi"!

Personally, I tried it and found the results to be a bad joke. They were different every time, even if I ran the test from the same spot, connecting to the same router. The speeds were also a faction of the actual connection speeds reported for my Surface RT and Toshiba laptop. They both show results in line with the speed of my home connection, whereas the 822 would appear to be glacially slow in spite of the fact it performs downloads and uploads at the same actual speed as the other devices. As far as my LTE connection goes, it reports speeds somewhere between basic DSL and old dialup - that is not what is reflected in real life use. I would take all numbers, whether really impressive or really stupid, with a large grain of salt.

Picked up an 822 the other day and getting familiar with the OS, pretty nice so far. I downloaded Speedtest and my speeds are considerably slower than on my Note 2. I consistently get 18-22Mbps down on my Note 2 but the the 822 has been much slower and more inconsistent. I've seen download speeds as low as 2.5Mbps and only as high as 12Mbps. I just ran it again from the office and today has been the best I've seen with 18Mbps down and 7Mbps up.
Anyone else seeing this? Any reports that the 4GLTE radio not as strong in the 822?
