LG G Flex 2 [FCC ID ZNFLS996]

Recommended Posts

Is there a way you can test it out for me? Also, do all notifications end up on the lock screen? On my last android (M8/August 2014) I would get a notification, and only hear the sound, have to reach and unlock my phone, pull down the notification shade just to see what it was. That's not safe in a 70,000lb truck driving down the road. Also, is there a "do not disturb" mode, and can the camera flash be enabled to flash on a notification or a phone call? Thanks.

There are different texting apps that will turn the screen on when you get a text. I use Textra. I don't know about any other notifications. They all show on the lock screen but only two at a time, that is lollipop standard right now. Not sure on your other questions.

Thinking about picking one of these up to replace my G2. Are the issues straightened out yet?

as far as performance and heat go yes they are. I haven't had near as many issues since they update before last. Thats not to say something doesn't lock up or hang or get laggy once in awhile, but i would say thats no different than any other phone. My only remaining concern is battery life, it seems to be all over the place for me and there is no good indicator of why. I've installed the GSAM battery monitor app and it never shows any apps out of whack with battery usage. I also started using LUX to control screen brightness and that doesn't seem to make a difference. Sometimes i get an hour to 1.5 hours of screen on time before i'm needing to charge, other times i get well over 2.5 hours :/

I see this is reported to have 2x CA, but haven't seen screenshots or confirmation of CA in this thread. Can one of y'all owners confirm CA is working well? Thinking about picking up a used model. Thanks.

i have this phone and CA works with it. however unless you get a really great deal on it i would stay away from this phone. its just "all right" not amazing by any means and still has lag that gets worse as time goes on. basically you have to factory reset every 4 to 6 months to keep acceptable performance.

Confirmed. Thanks. Though I was hoping it would be faster. Oh well.

It's possible you may not have been using CA at this moment. Although it's possible, 99% of the time the PCC and SCC PCI's are the same since you're generally using CA on the same sector of the same site. The SCC fields on LG engineering screens tends to get stuck, so when it disconnects, it still shows data there even though it's not connected. The only way to know for sure it's connected is if the RSRP numbers are updating on both the PCC and SCC fields.

 

Where was this test done? It's also possible there was just a lot of traffic in the area.

I see. I didn't know that. Thanks.

Midtown St. Louis. Right after I tested, I checked the engineering screen again and it showed primary/secondary of 375/375, going along with what you mentioned.

That is a pretty busy area. Do you know if you were on Clear B41 or Sprint B41? In some cases, the Clear B41 still doesn't have the appropriate backhaul yet.

Sorry, I don't know for sure.

 

Are you able to tell from the PLMN? It's 311-870. The majority of the time I see 310-120 around here.

311-870 is Clear B41. 310-120 is Sprint.

 

I should have seen that in the screenshot. Missed that.

    • I started working on the Raspberry Pi 3b Plus tonight with an Sierra Wireless em7565. This one has all those cool features that I was describing up top. Not bad for ~39 bucks. I was waiting for a few open source firmwares to get through the compilebot6k's toobs; this one is built now. Some use modem manager or openWRT for the router side. This LTE radio is band(s) 2/26/41 capable on the Sprint side. Band 25 did not make the cut, but was on previous Sierra builds. This is a tester radio so there is a slight chance it will appear down the road. It has just about every other LTE band.  

      This is an example of the debug screen. GMO is nearest so we only get 26 from a far site. No 41 in our zip yet. 
      The best part is I can plug an MC7455(that would be Modem#2) or another EM7565 in and it can hop over to that or I can direct load balancing. I just wanted to show the EM7565 authenticated below. Another shot of my terrible reception. Here it is out of the armor.

      So, we have a stable software image. I will get it built and add some GPS features, then test on band 41 in Myrtle where present. We have one site w 8t8r gear to test 3xCA on, so it might be a minute. I am in 2xCA MM areas through the week. I will see how it likes the Magic box too. 

      I should have a true GB ethernet router to massacre in the next couple of weeks with software images already set to go. I can embed the radio beyond a USB adapter. It still requires m.2>mPCIe but that is one less failure point and better throughput. This was a great breakthrough in affordable and small solutions for us.  I have to go to bed and then work now.

      Have a great week everyone.
    • Thank you so much for bringing light to this! I would have never known about it had you not posted it! You've saved me a lot of money and lowered my bill moving forward! It wasn't an easy process, but well worth it. Unlocking the phones was surprisingly easy. But the small hiccup came with my final bill. When I received it, I thought I was screwed when I saw that the ETF was included. I almost paid for it too, but the frugal in me decided to call Sprint (couldn't hurt, right?). After an hour on the phone with a US supervisor, my account was credited for the full amount of the ETFs. I walked away Scot-free!! Thanks a bunch OP! I'm trying Verizon's throttled unlimited data plan. Excellent reliability in the city, but there are certain key spots where I need my phone that aren't great. I don't know if it's the throttling or the network.
    • I see more mass upgrades by TMO on 600mhz -- it seems they did an amazing and fast roll out. If I recall folks here thougt TMO wouldn't be able to see much strides for a year plus.

      Reason I bring it up is TMO can't have much more free cash than Sprint. Yet can operate fast and lean.

      Positive note Sprint has rocked it's upgrades this past year...
