    when i use the youtube app on my phone, it sucks. it lags on the higher video quailty(480p-1080) its not the internet. i recently was watching movies on my phone and may have gotten a virus. i factory reset my phone last night. the still problem still persists. WHATS WRONG WITH MY PHONE.

    All 4G is not fast enough for Video. Do you have the same problem on Wi-Fi?

    Welcome to the forum.

    I was going to say the opposite. If you sure using Wi-Fi switch to mobile data. For some reason some people, including myself, can't stream hd videos from YouTube using Wi-Fi. If I switch to 3g or try a hd video from somewhere else the problem stops.
