    qBittorrent is the best torrent client that there is, so this is not an accurate comparison. LibreTorrent is simply the best I've tried for Android, and as such (in Android land) I recommend it. Well-designed, updated fairly regularly, and functional.

    I like Libretorrent as it works on my mobile device, and allows me to download content via Bittorrent using public networks instead of my own.
