There are times when your Wi-Fi network may be slow and you are streaming a movie or playing an online game. Link Turbo can automatically detect this and switch to 4G without you noticing. It can also combine both 4G and Wi-Fi for a more reliable experience. Link Turbo uses on-device AI to analyze a user’s usage experience and also network conditions to switch seamlessly between Wi-Fi and 4G networks.

In a video demonstrating how the feature works using the Honor Magic 2, we even see Link Turbo combining 4G and Wi-Fi for an active application while a secondary application (a downloader app) use only Wi-Fi.
