ExpressVPN Review, Download, Upload and Torrent Speed Test
There are a few VPN clients which have the potential to provide security and performance at the same time. The article is about ExpressVPN. We are going to review and take a few tests on ExpressVPN. We will connect VPN to different regions and then check if it changes our location and then we will test the download and upload speed and finally torrent test. The article is the ultimate review for Express VPN.
ExpressVPN review and features
It supports a vast number of servers — a unique feature available is Smart Location which connects to the nearest server. Meanwhile, if you want to choose a server, then tap on the Servers options. You can see the recommended servers by ExpressVPN or tap on All Locations to see all the available servers. It comes with two VPN protocols. The first one is UDP which is the best combination of speed and security, and the second one is TCP. You can also tap on Automatic if you want fate to decide. You can find these options in the settings menu.
Why should you try ExpressVPN?
ExpressVPN uses 256-bit encryption. Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) comes in different key strengths: 126, 192, and 256. 256-bit encryption is a highly powerful AES, and it is widely used on major websites. ExpressVPN uses 256-bit encryption which is very hard for a typical hacker to hack. The protocol changes unsecure VPN connection to a highly secured one.
ExpreeVPN comes with unlimited bandwidth which means you can stream and download full HD videos. Looking at the fact that ExpressVPN is only paid everyone would expect it to provide unlimited bandwidth.

On each platform, ExpressVPN comes with the same and different options. We are testing ExpressVPN on Android, so I’ll mention the settings available on Android. In the left panel, we can change the settings including protocol, language, set up other devices and log out while the alternative settings include start ExpressVPN on startup, get 30 days free, improve ExpressVPN and a couple more.

Let’s see if ExpressVPN changes our location. After connecting to a server in the United States here are the results.
ExpressVPN does an excellent job of hiding you. Test results: Passed.
ExpressVPN download and upload speed test
The speed test is essential and ExpressVPN review comes with this test. Before we finish, we still have two tests to take. Let’s move to the second test which is the speed test. Both tests were conducted at the same time at the same location. The left one is the LTE while the right one is LTE + ExpressVPN.
We can surely say there is a difference in speed. We lost about 57Mbps download, and 9 Mbps upload speed. Although ExpressVPN’s speed on LTE is excellent, there might be more different in Wi-Fi. Test results: Passed.
ExpressVPN torrent test
Let’s move to the final test in ExpressVPN review which is the torrent speed test. Many people are concerned whether it can download torrent at high speed. I’ll go with Smart Location so it can get the maximum speed. I’ll test ExpressVPN on Popcorn Time because it quickly starts downloading if the video is popular. In the test, I found positive results. On my LTE connection, the downloading began in a few seconds. Test results: Passed.
ExpressVPN comes in three different plans.
- For $12 you can enjoy ExpressVPN for a month.
- For six months you pay $60.
- The most popular is the annual plan for $100. You will get three months extra (15 months in total) on this plan.
