  5. LG V30

    So I finally picked up my V30+ on Wednesday night. Spent the next day and a half getting it set up to my liking. Radio-wise, this phone seems to be about on par with my G4 - possibly a few dB weaker. I don't have B41 at my house, so I haven't been able to do much on that front. I do have B41 at work, but when I'm there I have to do, you know, work stuff. But from at I can see there and at customer sites B41 seems strong, stable and fast. Overall this is great phone, and I'm really pleased with it so far. Despite the bigger screen, it's barely any larger overall than my G4. I've seen some comments that the phone has a plastic-y feel to it, but I haven't found that to be the case at all. Speaking of cases, I did slap a Spigen Neo Hybrid on it right away; it barely increases the size of the phone at all, while making for a secure grip with my sometimes sweaty hands. Functionally, it's quick and smooth as butter, as you'd expect with a brand-new phone. Battery life has been awesome. Yesterday I was working in a facility where signal was terrible, but I still had 70% battery when I left; my G4 would have been down to 30% or less. My experience has always been that battery life is not so great for the first week or so, either due to battery physics or because the phone is doing a lot of background work for updates, etc. (I've heard both theories - don't know if either is correct). So I won't be surprised if battery life gets even better in the next week or so. This is a lot of money for a phone, but I bought it with an eye to being future-proof for at least a few years. By then - who knows - we might be looking at 5G devices!
  6. iPhone 8, 8+, X announced

    Could be a combination of the two. HPUE has improved coverage substantially from devices I’ve seen with it. Only way to know which is the bigger contributor overall would be to get your old iPhone and test it under the current network. iPhone 6s supports 2xCA. It’s also a generation (or more in my opinion) behind in terms of RF components and features as it lacks HPUE. The S8 supports 3xCA and HPUE. When the iPhone finally gets HPUE a year from now, Sprint’s network will be in even better shape... or heaven forbid it will be running on T-Mobile, which doesn’t do HPUE as far as I know. :-(
  7. According to Günther’s Post, more enhancements could come as soon as November. Wonder what they have in store for us. Exciting times ahead for Sprint’s Coverage Map! I’m glad this important section of the Sprint website is finally getting some major attention.
  8. Samsung Galaxy S8 & Dual Sim/Duos

    hpue who 😂😂😂😂😂
  9. Samsung Galaxy S8 & Dual Sim/Duos

    my s8 sucks don't hold band 41, note 5 crush this s8 reception on band 41.
  10. iPhone 8, 8+, X announced

    Very difficult question to answer as it has sooo many variables --- BUT --- I've been trying out a Samsung s8+ for the last few days in my area. And performance and quality of service is vastly improved since I had service about a year or less ago With an iPhone 6s Plus. My question is -- is it more probable my area has improved due to tower changes, or because I'm using a HPUE equipt phone? Thanks in advance....

  12. LTE Band 8 temporarily used in Puerto Rico

    It was a carrier update for the iPhone. I think they are using it as an auxiliary band running on Project Loon balloons. So yes you had to download it from somewhere. Maybe go to a AT&T store that has either other bands or WiFi or both.
  13. LTE Band 8 temporarily used in Puerto Rico

    I know that every iPhone since the iPhone 5s/5c that are installed with iOS 10 or higher support the band. My concern is that in order to gain access, they have to be able to download a carrier update via either WiFi or Cellular. Not sure how easy it will be for residents to do that. -Anthony
  14. I'm still looking for that Klingon D7. They talked about on last week's #StarTrekDiscovery. (The crew is going to… https://t.co/mpI0eUz8Rc

  15. LTE Band 8 temporarily used in Puerto Rico

    I wonder what devices support band 8. I assume it is covered by the emergency roaming now in effect on the islands.
  16. That was terrible

  17. Samsung Galaxy S8 & Dual Sim/Duos

    My S8 holds B41 much longer than her S7, I've seen the RSRP as high as -135dBm on my S8 and still have a usable data connection. If my phone isn't on B41 its stays on B25, I hardly see B26 unless I go down in my basement.
  18. Pixel 2 XL Preview/User Thread

    I like the pixel 2 (no XL). The only problem I has was an issue with calling in US Cellular area on Project Fi but other that not bad and that is not really phone related. It is nice and small so it is lightweight.
  19. Samsung Galaxy S8 & Dual Sim/Duos

    I've yet to see anything over 80, note 5 was pulling 150 on 2xCA... Kinda weird don't you think? lol anyways yeah my Note 5 is dead took it to a phone shop and he looked it over and said it's most likely the charging port (95% chance of breaking the screen to replace it) so I have a $250 paperweight. Sad I am stuck with this S8+, I loathe it at this point.
  20. Samsung Galaxy S8 & Dual Sim/Duos

    3 carrier aggeration not seen over 100 mbps.
  21. Steak ‘n Shake in Urbana - your drive thru service is horrible. Seriously been sitting here for 30 minutes........

  22. RT @skeletoroficial: @traptomcruise20 @Complex This is it. The stupidest thing I've ever read on the internet. Congratulations.

  23. @Skippy9474 @GoodDoctorABC Love it!

  24. Pixel 2 XL Preview/User Thread

    Specs wise it is about as good as the XL right? Less excitement comes from the smaller size? I am leaning towards the 2 versus the XL just because i like being right around the nexus 5x size.
  25. Apple and AT&T in conjunction with Project Loon are using Band 8 in Puerto Rico. Band 8 is from 880-915 and 925-960. It is in effect in the rest of the world but not the US. It must be unencumbered in Puerto Rico. I guess anything to help restore service. http://www.fiercewireless.com/wireless/loon-working-at-t-to-get-basic-services-to-puerto-rico
  26. @charliekirk11 @TomiLahren They are too busy finding all of trump's lies Which is Easy work

  27. Def would of been nice to have had Extended LTE when I went to go see family and friends in Maine back at the end of June. Was all roaming LTE and hit my cap of 300mb quick when outside of my coverage area in Maine. At least this is a step in the right direction.
