Not sure if this has come up elsewhere, regarding the Moto X/M leak a few weeks ago (just move it if it has), but I can't seem to find any information on the SOC that is being reported. Only thing I seem to find is that it's Cat-6 compatible, but it doesn't appear that this chipset is used in any existing Sprint phones (or other US phone, seems only to be overseas) to get an idea of how well the radios work and what the connectivity would be like.
Obviously, it would only have 2-band CA as well as other limitations, but do we have anything comparable to this to give us an idea if we should be watching for a mid-range phone that will be hitting above its weight class? Or should we all just suck it up and go with the next Nexus and the Snapdragon 82X? I'm really gunning for the 4.6" Moto, but if the reception is lacking (whether LTE or WiFi), or it's not Sprint LTE Plus compatible, I'd rather just not waste my time. I'm still rocking my 2013 Moto X, I just really wish it were LTE Plus at this point, with a little bit better RAM management.
Ohio is mostly covered even in the archaic map . I remember when I got Sprint, there was no native coverage to my east. My home site was the edge of Sprint's footprint in the mid 2000's. The roaming was probably alltel. Alltel built out here several years before the others. Some of the towers have been around so long that they're painted red and white (still). And yet a strobe was installed atop the local tower anyway once Verizon took over. I guess they want to make absolutely sure planes don't crash into it.
