Agreed -- the phone even states that if you turn on Hotspots the app will drain your battery life. Also, Wifi to Hotspots and Hotspots back to Wifi was not automatic, at least I did not think it was. I have Wifi most often in use at my house, then switch to data when I am driving. If I am stationary, then I tap the Hotspots.
I thought the automatic was if you have both Data and Hotspots turned on, the cell will switch back and forth between both sources, in order to reduce data usage.
I suppose you could have both Wifi and Data running at home, which I often do, and the phone would switch back and forth as well.
I have had no problems with the LG X switching between data and hotspots, or data and wifi. I also have all other apps minimized or turned off,a nd data saver turned on, and battery saver turned on... so as far as rating on the LG X goes, it is a superior phone, in my view, because of the quick recharge time, the longevity of the battery, and its clear quality phone/audio
