It was bound to happen eventually...

 

So either I was tired from my friends 50th party, or I was distracted by a family member talking to me, but I managed to misjudge the distance of the kitchen counter and managed to hit the the edge of the counter against my phone. This resulted in my phone slipping from my hand and dropping to the kitchen floor in one loud crash. Flip cover went one way, battery went another way and the Edge laying on the floor screen side first. I was in a state of shock.

First thought was "oh crap, it finally happened, screen is probably cracked, destroyed." Fear of dread sets in. I stand there looking at its dismembered body for about a minute. Family tells me "well, are you going to pick it up"  

So I pick it up and in Valens' name, not a scratch. Thanks to Gorilla Glass 4. Naturally if this was outside on concrete, the results would have been totally different. Regardless it is quite nerve wrecking seeing it happen.

Quick question for you folks that have the Edge:

 

I occasionally have some issues with LTE switching back and forth to 3G with my LG G2 - likely due to some spotty coverage.  How is the radio performance working with this in spotty areas in comparison with other phones you've had - especially if you've had a G2, etc.  I'm still trying to determine whether to go with the Edge or the G3...

As an update regarding my questions regarding the Edge:

 

Went to two Sprint stores over the weekend.  Both talked me out of getting an Edge.   The reasons the reps listed were: a large amount of issues with dropped calls in the region being reported as well as hardware issues with the side screen and overheating in some instances.  One store had Edge stock, the other didn't.

 

I did, though, get a Note 4 and am very happy with the purchase.  Where my LG G2 was very spotty with LTE coverage - and voice coverage - the Note 4 has no issues. 

 

I was also considering an LG G3, but while I was in one of the stores I was speaking with a customer that lives a block over from me that has a G3 and was experiencing the same issues I was with the G2.  She was returning the G3 and looking at other options when I walked out with my Note 4.

 

Just giving a heads up as to my experiences over the weekend.

 

Thx much,

 

Terry

hmmm interesting. I haven't experienced those issues with the exception of it getting more warmer than usual when I was streaming a movie to Chromecast. But that only happened once.

Chromecast shouldn't make the phone get warm. Unless you were playing it on your phone and then mirroring the screen, once you start playback on Chromecast it takes over and you could even turn the device off. Or maybe if you left the screen on, but I don't see how casting would do anything intensive.

I thought the dropped calls was with the network here. I go thru a ton of dropped calls. I have no problem with over heating. Maybe with the next update will fix that.

This is true, but I'm not saying that Chromecast was the cause, I'm just saying that is what I was doing when it got warmer than usual. I also had it plugged in to the wall outlet at the time. But I have done the same thing many times after that and I did not experience the same thing happening.

Anyone here using the Note Edge?  Does it work OK with CA?

 

It is the handset that RootMetrics is using to test Sprint.

    • The 123 subway station at Penn Station finally has B41. Its from the Transit wireless DAS but in the past it only had B25 LTE. Nice to see more B41 lighting up underground. I'm going to check the ACE side sometime this week as well. 
    • I'd just wonder how long it would take to get the networks to mesh.  How integrated would they need to be to have seemless handoffs, especially with voice.  Then how long will this integration take to get to that point. That's if they even integrate networks. Maybe they could say just point Sprint's equipment to TMobile's servers, push some updates and be integrated.  Not knowing a thing about how their networks work, this is the grey area and the area I'd be concerned with.  For data, I can see just open up bands to each others customers, retransmit requests/packets if hopping networks.  But not sure that will go well for VoLTE.  Plus there could be a lot of lost packets which wouldn't be good for a lot of services.  I'd imagine at first say as a Sprint customer I would be able to use the TMobile network, but when the phone scans it would scan for Sprint channels first then scan for TMobile if it can't find Sprint.  
    • Apparently the MiniMacros was an actual order placement.  But I don't know how long of a period a time this order is for.
    • Hmm makes sense kinda, I've noticed my battery has tanked a lot myself. Probably going to disable it and see if it makes a difference.
