Samsung Galaxy Note 5 & Edge+ Rumor Thread

Recommended Posts

I read it but im not very tech savvy I see it has various lte signals but I'm lost to which ones are for sprint and which ones arent... Also I don't know how many lte signals u need to have sprint spark (to my knowledge you would need three signals???). Sorry if I sound really lost but I am haha.

Spark is B25, B26, and B41. Anything else could be used for roaming if Sprint and a partner enabled it.

Do you still have your G3 on an active line? we would be interest in the cell edge performance comparison, signal strength, band drop off, etc. the Note5 have bad RF per the wall article, I just want to see how bad it is in real life. My next upgrade is due in Nov and the Note5 is the top choice currently(unless the new nexus show some major surprises)

 

Thanks

It's on my mother-in-law's line. One thing I can say is I'm on B41 in my office where the G3 stayed on B26. I'll try a speed test later to see if it's actually usable.

Ok, so it's about the Same as the G3. I was wrong about it being on B41, it's actually just on B26 like the G3 Was. Speed test is about the same in my office.

Guys, we now have official user threads for the Note 5 and S6 Edge up in the forums.

This thread will be closed by the end of the day since both devices are arriving in users hands and there isn't a need for a rumor thread any longer.

Please refrain from posting after this post and post in the appropriate user thread below.

 

Thanks

    • I posted the below on the essential subreddit.  Wonder if others on sprint have the same issue?   "It is well noted that the essential has reception / radio problems but today, when I roamed on to US Cellular, it completely abandoned 1x and connected to LTE only. Which is fine when connected to Sprint because the phone can pass text messages over LTE. However, while roaming, the phone would not send or receive text messages and could not make or receive calls because it was latched to USCC LTE and needs a 1x connection to do this. My 5X (and I assume every other phone), when it connected to USCC LTE, would somehow get notification of a text or call and idle back over to 1x to take care of things and then dump the 1x connection until needed again (signal check shows all of this happening). Same deal when I would try to send a text as well. Seems the essential is dead in the water under these conditions and just can not bring it self to go to 1x when needed while roaming, at least on USCC. I do not have other roaming carriers up here to test with. I am sure we do not need to go into the problems with being completely unable to make a phone call in the very large areas that Sprint uses USCC to roam on. I can accept if it was just the area I was in. So in that case, any other Sprint users roamed on USCC LTE without any voice or text problems recently? I am on Oreo Beta for what its worth."
    • Twitter might give you better results. 
    • Essential's reception to the reception issues was not very receptive because their reception at the time was poor and they did not receive full receipt of the reception issues. AJ
