Finally got Lollipop today! Really posses me off that it was more than 3 months after the M8, especially since it is the same phone inside.

 

So far I'm loving it, but testing notifications are weird. using stock messenger app. I thought the text would appear at the top of the screen, but it doesn't. Just the icon in the status bar. Setting I can change somewhere?

I haven't tried it on a sense rom yet, but if it's like standard lollipop you can have it show a pop up type notification at the top of the screen briefly but it won't scroll through the notification bar like kit kat.

Yeah, I don't think the Sense messaging app has been updated for that yet ... Guess I'll have to wait for Sense 7 for that

 

In the meantime, I downloaded the Google app "Messenger" and it's great! It obviously has full lollipop functionality, and I can respond to texts without even having to unlock! So awesome.

I've been using Hangouts for SMS for a while on every device I've had. At first I didn't care much for it, but it's grown on me. The integration with Google Voice was just a plus.

This isn't Hangouts though ... I do like Hangouts, but even Hangouts doesn't let you reply from the notification.

 

If I integrate my GV with Hangouts, can I send texts from my computer using the Hangouts app for Chrome?

I reply to SMS through Hangouts from the lock screen notifications all the time, I'm not sure why it won't let you. Yes you would be able to send/receive sms from any computer using Chrome with the Hangouts extension installed. You can even make or receive calls if you have a headset for your computer.

Interesting, mine doesn't let me.l: 481733ec59dd96fe392d17171b3435cc.jpg

 

As opposed to with Messenger:

I see what you're saying, you're right it doesn't let me reply that way. I have to click on the notification to open Hangouts and send through the app. That is a pretty nice feature.

Yup! Works when it pops up when you are doing something else also! Basically like Facebook Messenger, only easier and less annoying.

      Figured the HTC U11 needs to have it's own thread as opposed to having that conversation in the HTC U Ultra thread.
       
      Pretty interesting article that has me excited about this phone. As the U11 seems to be leading Sprint's march towards Gigabit LTE.

      The 850 MHz LTE Sprint network is so congested in De Soto MO. I also have proof on my SDR Radio.
       My SDR Radio can only show 1.920 MHz of the 5 MHz wide LTE Signal.

      hey guys i am due for a upgrade today....i am curious on the opinions of others of what phone is a great phone... any opinions are welcome !

      The rumor mill has fully geared up, so it seems time for a thread in which the potential HTC-made 2016 Nexus phones can be discussed.
       
      Rumors suggest two phones: a 5" device codenamed Sailfish, and a larger device codenamed Marlin. Both are thought to be produced by HTC. [There's also a report that Google is making its own phone, without an OEM partner--along the lines of a Pixel phone--but that report has been largely discounted.]
       
      Android Police has claimed it knows with 8/10 certainty some specs of the smaller device--Sailfish:
      Manufactured by HTC 5" 1080p display (~440PPI) Quad-core 2.0GHz 64-bit processor (model unknown) 4GB RAM 2770mAh battery 32GB storage (unknown if multiple models will be available, or even if this is the base storage level) 12MP rear camera, 8MP front Rear-mounted fingerprint scanner USB-C port (bottom) Bottom-firing speaker or speakers (unknown if dual) Top-mounted headphone jack Bluetooth 4.2 Any thoughts on these devices? The last several Nexus devices have been Sprint compatible; is there any reason to think these won't be? Any hints in regulatory filings? How is HTC's radio performance, generally? Will Sprint sell them directly, and even if they do, will it still be preferable to buy directly from Google?

      I notice a lot of post regarding the markets in IL,FL,TX,PA,NYC.... but how about about the Los Angeles market? I THINK it was samsung doing the set up for the L.A market? Not sure though.... I'm not a sponsor member of the site so I can't really check... if I had a job I'd most definitely donate!
       
      Couple of months ago the local towers were all down and being upgraded to NV I assume since Larry from Howard forums said there was NV work being done my zip code. The speeds were better for a bit but now they are awful again.
       
      Can anyone (most preferred Robert) make a comment on if there is any LTE activity near 90255 area code?
       
      Thanks, great site by the way... I'm a Lurker.
