If you have your mind set to switch today get the Galaxy S7 flat.

How long have you been gone? When I ported out the other week they sent me an email offering $300 in service credit if I switched back.

LG V20 for aural pleasure. 2nd screen is useful. Maybe Sprint will throw another promo on them.

 

S8 for a lot of everything which sadly includes the worst placed fingerprint sensor ever. And you have decided if you like the shiny, glass edges.

 

Check out the G6 too. 

 

What might make the difference on these in what specials they are offering.

I got the S7 edge because it was the only phone they had available at the store that I wanted and I'm glad to come back to Sprint cheaper service and their coverage has improved on my block someone can't wait to see the rest of the rest of the improvement

I actually played with one in Best Buy yesterday, and it's a pretty easy reach. I didn't accidentally hit the camera or anything. I even found my finger resting very near the scanner when I wasn't trying to reach it.

His post meant that the S8 does not have 4x4 MIMO on B41. 

 

The S8 does have support for 4x4 MIMO on B25.

This kinda implies it does have it on b41.

 

"The news comes after Sprint launched two tests for gigabit-level speeds, recently reaching download speeds of 400 to 600 Mbps on its own network during a National Basketball Association Game.

 

The three main "ingredients" for these speeds will be included in the Galaxy S8: 4x4 MIMO, which uses multiple antennas to boost capacity; three-channel carrier aggregation, which allows Sprint to tap into multiple bands of spectrum for better speeds; and 256 QAM, which allows devices to transmit more information."

They didn't use the Galaxy s8 but Motorola device for a reason.

 

You kinda also gave to declare 4x4 mimo in FCC filings and they declared it only for b2/4/25/66.

    • Existing sites have all been upgraded, but the network around here was not designed to blanket LTE.  I recognize that the coverage maps often indicate that coverage is acceptable, but that just isn't the case.   Attaching a pic below that has a blue square.  Illinois Route 47.  Its not an interstate, but still a busy state highway.  This is an area where placement of one additional tower would ensure contiguous LTE coverage from Dwight down through Forrest.  It is equally as bad as you travel farther south on Route 47 south of Forrest.  Phones hang onto LTE for dear life, but drop down to 1x and 3g as the town of Strawn is approached.  From Strawn south nearly all the way to Gibson City is 3G or 1x. Site spacing is great for 1x voice coverage, but its just not there for full-time LTE coverage (no matter which band is being discussed.) Every time I'm in one of these areas, I'm reporting the issues in the Sprint Zone.  At one point in time Sprint was working with Illinois Valley Cellular through the Rural Roaming Partner deal - but I have yet to see any indication of connecting to IVC Equipment.  The partnership started in 2014, and it is now nearing the end of 2017, and I am fairly confident that IVC has not held up their end of the deal in moving their network to LTE.  All of that being said, it is not a big deal at this moment.  It will be a big deal at the point in time that a decision is made to shutter CDMA, if the holes are not fixed.     edit:  relevant to this thread - even a Sprint/Tmo merger would not fix this problem without filling in gaps.  
    • I don't think so... the radio in the S8 just performs way better in low signal based on my tests. My coworker did similar tests on a TMO V30 and has similar results as well. It might be a software issue with the phone...

    • It is on the expansion map that was released recently... when I'm not sure. As far as I know it's still 3G up there... outside Marquette they added some unlimited US Cellular roaming based on the latest map update.

    • Completely wrong thread or market but it looks like sprint plans to bring LTE to the upper peninsula aka Marquette MI. Can anyone confirms this ? I see some marginal activity in the Sensorly app

    • Anything new to report about band 26 for SoCal or is this all a pipe dream hoping it gets cleared for rollout before 2027 ?
