Wow, kinda surprising that they have both band 26 and 41 in enabled from the beginning.

Curious of what SignalCheck shows when on LTE if it allows the PCI and GCI to be snagged.

Yeah, but that was standard two months ago with the immediate update for the Galaxy Mega and Galaxy S4 Mini, was it not?

Can be done if only I can figure a way to force LTE. 

 

Oh and guys. The nexus 5 have not been dethroned!

Where do you go to get to that last screenshot? Is that screen only for tri-band phones or can I get to it from my S4?

Triband only.

Is the -140RSRP Right ? OR does it show that when trying to connect?

Tried to connect and got booted off due to eCSFB. Values are null but correct. 

 

Also 3G icon is changed..

Ah, So band 41 RSRP values will be higher(lower) than traditional values?

Why are Band 41 results so low? it can't possibly be loaded.

Backhauls not upgraded. Seems to top out at about 20 mbps for this one. I know of several other ones in my area that I'll test out later.

Ah I didn't think about Backhaul. Sounds good, Tim!

re: exterior box photos

 

I see the LTE B26 frequency added, I don't see any explicit mention of Spark or the 720T part number anywhere.  Were there any other hints on the the box or is the Band26 / three LTE frequencies listed the only way to tell from the outside of the box?

 

I suppose it was on the end labels or something.

 

Mine should deliver Monday.  It has tracked into the Kentucky hub with UPS tonight.  2 days via ground from there.

 

Have you gathered any information useful to update the entry on PDADB?

It is the WiMAX "bandwithhog."

Woah, awesome! Our store doesn't have any yet; the GS4s that came in most recently lack the T.

Looks correct.

 

What is there should be correct, I'd like to see more of the empty gaps filled in.

 

I'm going to be asking a lot of dumb questions regarding how to find that info once I get my phone in hand.

      Just a bit of insight. I live near UMD in Duluth, MN. Sprint's signal is clearly much 'dirtier' with a 1.0 SNR compared to T-Mobile's 20.4 SNR. I don't have a screenshot from the same time, but I get about a 22 to 29 SNR with T. I know that AT&T uses RRU's but I'm not too sure about Sprint or T-Mobile. Also, I didn't even know they had L2500 where I live, but I force checked it on my Samsung S7 (AT&T).

      Did you know that with many Sprint (Uniband) LTE Android devices, the signal strength indicator at the top does not show your LTE signal strength? Even if 4G or LTE is displayed next to it?
       
      That's right!  This signal displayed here is your 1x (voice signal), and it is not your 3G EVDO signal strength, nor your LTE signal strength.  Regardless of whether it says 3G or 4G next to it. This is the cause of a lot of confusion.  Also, third party apps like NetMonitor do not show accurate LTE signal strengths. They also only show the 1x signal strength, even though they may reference being connected to LTE.
      The purpose of this thread is to help educate the masses, because many people think they have a strong LTE signal, when in fact they do not. And then they are unhappy, thinking that Sprint LTE is really slow, even with a strong signal. LTE performance is very signal strength dependent. So, when you have a weak signal, you can expect much slower than peak results.
       
      There is only one accurate way to get your LTE signal strength, and that is from your LTE Engineering screen in your Debug menu. And we will discuss the different ways to get that below.
       
      ...In HTC, Motorola & LG Sprint LTE devices:
      Go in to your phone app, and dial ##DEBUG# Select LTE Engineering Go down to RSRP. The number under RSRP shown in dBm is your LTE signal strength. ...In Samsung Sprint LTE devices:
      Go in to your phone app, and dial ##DEBUG# Enter 777468 for your lock code Select LTE Engineering Go down to RSRP. The number next to RSRP shown in dBm is your LTE signal strength. ...In the Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 5:
      Go in to your phone app, and dial *#*#DEBUG#*#* Enter 777468 for your lock code Select LTE Engineering Go down to RSRP. The number next to RSRP shown in dBm is your LTE signal strength. The LTE Signal Strength Scale:
       
      Now you have determined your actual LTE signal strength in dBms your device is receiving, you can use the following scale below to determine its strength:
      Better than -88dBm RSRP is a strong signal Between -89dBm and -96dBm is a very good signal Between -97dBm and -105dBm is good Between -106dBm and -112dBm is fair Worse than -113dBm RSRP is poor Feel free to link people to this thread for explanation. Hopefully, this will clear up some confusion out there!

      Some history first;
      Been through all the highs & broken promise Lows over the last 18 years with Sprint, currently have 7 lines. My main areas of concern are where I live and my retirement cabin which are in a semi Sprint dead zones.
      My Note3 will hold onto 3g for dear life. I have to toggle airplane mode to return to LTE signal (while standing in my back yard). Once I enter the house it drops to 3g. Speed test at 4g is slow at best.
      In my front yard it's 3g unless I walk into the center of the street, togle airplane mode then can pick up SLOW 4g again(until I walk to my front door.) i know note3 is missing band 41 which is suposto help.
      The wife's Iphone6 is 3g in my front yard, lte in the middle of the street and drops to 3g when entering our house also. When on 3g and walking into the back yard, airplane mode to froce it to 4g and it sticks to lte once you enter the house again. 1 to 2 bars, 17mb down with 1.3mb up. It will hold onto the lte signal.
      Does anyone have any insight to what I should expect with a Note5? Sprint has programed the system so if our 3g signal is stronger, my phone will want to stay there, Will carrier aggregation solve this problem or will the Note 5 try and hang onto the stronger 3g signal at all costs?
      I'm able to pre order the Note5 for $249 with a $200 SAMSUNG REBATE. Hate to get all excited and sign on for another 2 years if the Note5 will be doing what the note3 is doing. I get the whole ehrpd and 3g improving the cell phone experiance. At this point im more interested in being able to use more than the 5mb per month my 7 phones average and finally be able to use some of the unlimited data I've been paying for over the last 18 years. I'm in West Orange County, CA. and travel to the SAN Bernardino mountains weekly. Experts please chime in. On the fence to switch carriers but want Sprint to suceed and be there when they do!

      Hopefully we can finally start seeing some user feedback. So far so good! it is without a doubt the best device ive owned!!!
