LG Google Nexus 5 Users Thread!

Recommended Posts

Nexus 6? Doubt it. A Nexus tablet? Maybe.

 

Just two days ago the hot news was that HTC was making the Nexus 6 (again). Now it's Motorola? I wouldn't bother with any of the rumors at this point.

Don't sleep on Motorola.....the Moto X is pretty spectacular, and the Moto 360 looks awesome! 

 

5.9 inch screen is a bit much tho..

I would buy a Motorola Nexus 6. The Moto X has been a solid device, especially in the RF dept. The only thing that made it a no go for Sprint was that it was limited to only Band 25. Count me intrigued.

Just haven't been too impressed with Motorola recently. I'm open to changing my mind of course but I'd rather see an HTC Nexus 6.

Playing with the Moto G LTE side by side with the Nexus5 impressed me. Excellent phone in RF, speed, and definitely price. HTC's track record on phones has left me to not even look at their products the past couple years.

Lately my stand by time has been terrible. The last two nights I left the phone off the charger and it drained over 50% battery. Any idea what could be causing this? The battery screen showed WiFi as the top user. I love this phone, but it seems to have more battery drain problems than I have had on all previous devices combined.

I took a few from my tablet, but I haven't touched the phone camera in a while.

My sister owns a Moto X, and she (on sprint mind you, single band) refuses to give it up!! She absolutely loves it!

 

Also, as Robert has stated, the RF performance is solid! B25 is almost on par with .15 N5 radio

I don't really care who makes the next nexus. As long as it continues to be the same quality I've come to love out of my n5 (which I'm sure google will expect). However I really don't want a phablet.... I have really long fingers and larger than average sized hands and the nexus 5 is the perfect size. I just want to be able to fit my phone into my pocket and not have it look like I'm carrying around an external hard drive.

I am hoping the N6 is still GSM/CDMA like the N5 and not back to GSM.

Sprint got skipped with the N4, not to mention majorly delayed updates for the Galaxy Nexus.

Now that they have an established good relationship with Google, I don't think that will be an issue.

I'd definitely consider a Motorola Nexus. I just hope it's not 5.9 inches like the rumor suggests, which is too big IMO.

 

The Moto X is a pretty solid phone. I had signal on the Moto X where the LG Nexus 5 had nothing, mind you that was all on AT&T. The only thing I'm not crazy about with Motorola is their AMOLED displays, they just aren't bright enough in direct sunlight.

I would rather just have another n5 + double or triple battery size/time.

 

oh, and better b41 sensitivity or scanning.

So i have attempted to switch back to Sprint from Ting. I wanted to lower my bill about 6 months ago and i switched to Ting which has been a great experience. Now that i have been using my device more, i decided to switch back to Sprint on a Framily plan. The problem is my old account is in the Sprint system still and my Nexus 5 can't be activated for some reason. The Sprint system is not taking my MEID/IMEI. I have been to the Sprint store a few times and have talked to ALOT of Sprint reps in Finance, Sales, and Customer service. The funny thing is, ATT and Tmobile have no issues when i put in the IMEI on their sites to activate service. Seems to be a Sprint side issue. Im going to a Sprint Corporate store tonight, but im doubtful they will get this figured out. So frustrating...

You need to ask ting to release the imei back to sprint.

Thanks for the response lilotimz,

 

I called Ting and nothing is holding it back according to them. The Sprint store was using the hex version of the MEID/IMEI to try and activate, but they may have had to use the dec version of the number for it to work. I'm going to have them try both tonight after work.

If it doesn't work this time, don't call, open a ticket with Ting online. lilotimz is right, I had to do this procedure with one of my in-law's phone.  MEIDs in Sprint's system are either locked to "wholesale" (i.e. MVNO) or "corporate" (Sprint itself).  For whatever reason, no one at Sprint seems to know how to switch between them and Ting doesn't remove it from the wholesale list unless you specifically ask them to.

Awesome, thanks for the heads up. I have created the ticket. Hopefully if anyone else is on Ting and they see this, it will help them get their Nexus 5 back on Sprint should they switch back.

      Ericsson RRUS31 B25 + RRUS11 B26
      These are the newest and greatest remote radio units to come from Ericsson. 

      The new Ericsson RRUS31  B25 should be fairly distinctive compared to the earlier RRUS11s and now the RRUS12s being deployed by ATT and Verizon. One of these new RRUS31s can do the job of two earlier RRUS11s thus reducing deployment costs for Sprint and complexity in deploying new sites and making it easier for users to spot as there are now 4 jumpers coming out of one RRUS31 rather than two from each RRUS11 that Ericsson originally deployed. 

      All future deployments will be utilizing the new Ericsson RRUS31s. In addition Ericsson are sending crews to their original deployments and swapping out older RRUS11s for these new RRUS31s due to the aforementioned fact that one RRUS31 can do the job of 2 RRUS11s. Weight savings will be significant at sites where there are 4 or 5 RRUS11 B25s that can be replaced by one or 2 RRUS31s. The Ericsson RRUS31 deployment project is known as the 65 Mhz Project.

      Ericsson High Capacity / 4x4/2 MIMO Deployment
      Note the additional antenna + PCS radio.
      Previously Ericsson utilized additional PCS radios and used RF combiners for high capacity setups where they utilized three or more PCS radios. This new setup will utilize a completey new antenna + radio set just like Samsung and run 4x2 MIMO on the LTE antenna / radio set. 
       

       

       

       
      Ericsson RRUS11 B25 [EOL'd] and B26
      A standard Ericsson Network Vision 1.0 site with 3 RRUS11s where two are dedicated to PCS and one to SMR.  

      This type of setup is no longer deployed or utilized in new sites. Existing sites will be slowly converted to newer RRUS31 B25 via the Sprint 65 mhz project. 


       
      Ericsson NV high capacity site [EOL'd]
      3 or 4 PCS RRUs are present for a total of 4 or 5 RRUS11s per antenna.

      Hey guys I found another newsletter about Sprint and Cox. I'll be posting the article here.

      Here are the Alcatel-Lucent (ALU) Network Vision equipment for Sprint. Their equipment consists of 2x base stations, 6 or 9 Remote Radio Unit (RRU) setups, and 1 standard NV antenna of with connectors on the bottom (4x PCS, 2x SMR). 

      Below are images of Alcatel-Lucent equipment. In these images, you will find Alcatel-Lucent base stations, Sprint Network Vision antennas, PCS 1900 & SMR 800 RRUs, and their configurations.

      Standard Alcatel-Lucent Setup 
      Utilizes 2x50w 800 MHz B26 RRU and 4x45w 1900 MHz B25 RRU and compatible antennas.

      Note the lack of 800 MHz RRUs though the antennas are capable of 800 MHz.
