Having a note 2, which I still love, I was waiting for the note 5 but it seams it will just be a bigger s6 w stylus. I know it will perform great but I hate that Samsung followed apple and restricted our options as far as removable sd card and battery which made Samsung different than apple which I dont like. I guess im going LG now.

Could the trend of the Note line missing out on the latest and greatest be broken? 3X CA?

ATT Note 5 + Edge has 3xCA while VZW Note 5 + Edge does not and have 2xCA. 

 

T-mobile and Sprint has yet to pop up.

I heard today from a samsung rep that they have been told august is blacked out for PTO. They only do that for big device launches. He seems to think they will announce and launch a note 5 in Aug.

TMO variants can do 3xCA and USM can only do 2xCA. Therefore, probably only 2xCA for Sprint too.

Which one is which?  If the USCC variant A3LSMG928R4 is any indication, one of these two handsets looks to be another recent Samsung RF turd.

Discovered by staff upon upload to the OET. Wall article in the making. 

 

And yes. 2xCA on the downlink, typical LTE band 2/4/5/12/25/26/41 support, no SVLTE,.. yada yada.

Also unsurprisingly VoWiFi and no VoLTE testing. Is the technical description of LTE Carrier Aggregation pairs located in a report which is not publicly available or under some kind of confidentiality?

Bummer. Samsung was one of the only ones which included the LTE CA pairs in the main doc other than LG. Even Motorola started including it in some of their docs. Can we petition to have the FCC "test" and "certify" the LTE CA pairs (so we can see of course)?

When CA is only downlink, the FCC has no recourse, as CA makes no changes in uplink transmission.

Another rumor has popped up and this time it is that the Sprint version will have a SD Card slot but only 3GB of Ram.

 

Samsung had a change of heart.

I bet this was just copy/pasted from the Note 4.

Thanks for busting the happy balloon.

 

But I feel you may be right.

I'm completely "meh" too. No USB C (or even 3.0), no 4K screen for VR. Lack of an SD card can be made up by the 128GB storage option, but in total it just seems to be a worse RF performing Note 4 with CA.

I think for some reason Samsung expects note users to sit in an office and use it with WiFi...just don't get it. Seems like Samsung is just trying to stay with apple

    • 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.
