    I'm about ready to upgrade to an Android phone. One of the main uses will be as a hotspot, Is one of the android phones better than an other for this application? Thanks in advance.

    I don't have any experience in this area so I'm interested in the answer also.

    Pretty much any Android will work well as a wifi hotspot, since its not a complex process.

    However, you might want to consider buying one with 4G especially if your in a area with 4G, since it will be significantly faster.

    Also something to take into account is any signal issues some phones may have. I used to tether through a Samsung phone and reception was ok however when I switched to a Motorola, the reception was far better. That translated into a stronger data connection when tethering.
