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)
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
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?
Had not seen a thread for this yet,
I see some definite consumer advantages with Sprint's Network combined with TMob and Wi-fi.
I have had many Nexus devices and I love my Nexus 6, although it is a bit big.
The price is good for the service. ($20 / unl talk/txt, $10/gb)
I hope the technical aspects work as they propose. I am a Google Voice Number user and love the "Any device" call capability and use it on my Tablet, Chromebook and phone. I rarely actually answer my Phone at the house. Answer the tablet or Chromebook.....
I love Sprint's network, the upgrades they are putting forth and this Site, but if Project Fi works as advertised, it might lure me to sign on.....
I've been using PS Vue for about a year and a half. It has gotten progressively better and it has almost all the channels I want. I wish they would add A&E and History, but other than that, everything is working well. The DVR is fantastic. ABC is the last local that I'm waiting on, but that should get added soon. I read they signed the contract a couple weeks ago, but it takes time to get added. Cost varies but I have their top package with no premium channels and pay $55 per month. I was paying around $150 per month for Dish before I canceled.
When on US Cellular roaming, my G5 was always on SRLTE. I think that's how it determined whether to roam on LTE or not; if it had 1X on US Cellular, then LTE roaming was permitted. The moment it picked up Sprint CDMA though, it dropped US Cellular LTE.
Actually, as far as I can tell, US Cellular is SRLTE across the board. My US Cellular phone, and my father-in-law's, both always have SRLTE running.
