How Fast is Your GSM Network? G-NetSpeed for WM
Have you ever seen those sites for testing your broadband speed connection? Well, XDA member gyokov has just made an application for WM to test just that, but out of your device’s current data service. This one touch app is very easy to use and seems to be rather accurate. On top of that, the app will allow you to add multiple url addresses to perform these tests. Lastly, it will show you your CellID.
The app was recently released, so it may have a bug or two. Also, you may have some suggestions for the dev. If this is the case, feel free to let the dev know.
The application tests the UMTS/GSM network speed. It also shows the serving CELLID of the network. You can choose between several URL or input your own URL.
You can find more information in the application thread.

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
