I heard it's supposed to have the worst specifications for the US model

plastic screen ≠ purchase

The flat portion of the screen could possibly be protected with a glass screen protector.

After breaking two screens on my Nexus 6P, I think I'm willing to try a nearly indestructible plastic screen in my next device. I'm thinking about getting this thing.

I handled one today and it's pretty slick. I need to activate it on our demo account and get it on the display wall tomorrow so I will try and get some speed test. Unfortunately because of the mini macro site on our roof we get amazing B25 and don't connect to B41 in store.

I only got to fondle it for like 3 mins and then had to get back to the line of customers but it's sitting on my desk waiting for me to activate it tomorrow. I'll try and get some better impressions then.

With a Live case and glass screen protector, i've never broken my N6P and I drop the thing constantly.  I can't believe how clumsy I've become with this device.

I've dropped it twice face down and broke the screen twice.  Both times were on asphalt with little pointy rocks on the surface.

That was his first 6P.  Waited quite a while before getting the screen replaced.  I had no idea he dropped the slippery thing again.  I have the 6P as well and it's VERY slippery.  I've replaced a screen myself.

Yes it is a slippery device, i dropped mine once or twice and got very lucky both times.  It's been in a Live case since then

Just did a b41 comparison with the S8+ in the Sprint store and wow they optimized this thing to the core. It's b41 was -10 to -15dbm better at all times. I was shocked.

Perhaps could one of the S4GRU article writers put together an article with the band specifications like in the past?

Seems like it's been forever since that happened. I wouldn't mind a raffle for a b41 beast like this

That is highly unlikely to be an apples to apples comparison -- because the Moto would be receiving 10-30 times stronger signal.  Almost assuredly, at least one other factor contributed to the differences.  Also, your negative signs and dBm units of measurement are incorrect for this comparison.

There has to be other factors that are coming into play here. Obviously the signal cannot be 30x better (for every 3dB your doubling signal) But considering Sprint has been using this phone as a reference for showing off GB LTE, I have no doubt it will be a radio performance monster, and you somewhat confirmed it.

 

Unfortunately, the S8 has been a less than stellar radio performer. Hopefully with that sweet Calling Plus update coming we will get some sort of radio improvements.

    • I believe it will be located at the Downtown Clearwire Substantial Service Site.  But it has not been formally sited yet.  Just in early planning.  It might not even be developed.




    • I gotcha. And you don’t know where exactly the sites are going to be ? I was hoping they would at least blanket Marquette MI since my girlfriend goes up there to see her friends sometimes and gets extended 3G on her phone while in town. I’m hopping they at least coverage Marquette

    • So far no luck with my Note 5, think the damn things is dead. Just went out and got the Samsung Wireless Charging Stand for $60 and the lights indicate it's charging on the pad but I don't see the phone charging, S8+ charges fine on it. Gonna let it sit on here a bit and hope it turns on and was just really dead from sitting a few months. If not I may just toss it off a bridge I'm pissed.
    • Yeah, I've been experiencing similar issues, especially with B41. The device is constantly switching to different bands in strong B41 signal areas. At times I've lost LTE all together, it almost seems like it doesn't know what to do lol. I tried the Z2 for a few days before I decided to switch back to Sprint and the difference between the two, RF wise is like night and day. I decided over the V30 figuring it would be equal or close to the Z2 RF wise, but so far it hasn't. I'm talking about a solid 10 dbms better in signal. Very disappointing. I think I rather have the Z2 Force although it doesn't have 4XCA and 2xCA on upload but it holds a great signal, aside from the fact that it is cheaper than the V30.
