Yes sir, fail on my part....figured would be same as 6p sim but it's isim so no network evaluation yet.

 

Phone build is awesome and feels solid in the hand. Included accessories are too notch.

 

A few photos but nothing special. Using it on WiFi and all apps restored from my g6 with no issues.

 

Decent battery so far with restoring apps and changing my settings so far.

 

More to come....

I want to try this phone but if I'm gonna go caseless.... I want the matte finish stellar gray, hopefully the company will have that choice available for me. Samsung has disappointed me in color choices

Finger prints are a minor issue but many wraps if you want one...some very nice ones!

 

 

So far, the PH1 has a better radio for me compared to my g6.

 

Hands onto LTE much longer and send faster....no speed test yet.

A new sim card....lol

 

I tried my 6p and it was a failure, contacted our fearless Lilo & Stich moderator and hooked me up with the correct isim numbers bc most Sprint reps have no clue....

I was considering it...until Google agreed to replace my Nexus 6P for a Pixel XL.  Now I will wait until next year to replace my phone.

I'm going to get one, but I was waiting for a display model to play with it first...went to a store last week and the clerk had no idea what an Essential phone was. Funny thing about that though, there was a picture of it on the store's wall - and I turned around and pointed to it. :lol: He said "Oh, yeah that hasn't come in yet"

I heard about the replacements, no cost swap for the XL?

Feels so nice in the hand, very nice phone but overpriced. I'm happy to get off my g6 though...Paying off my g6 easy pay and selling it ASAP.

No cost.  They did authorize my card for $900+, but said they will only charge if they don't get back the 6P within 21 days.

I have a note 5 and played with the essential phone in the store the other day and like the looks of it.  Just gun shy from reading the Reddit essential sub with all the issues.  I looked over the AMA from yesterday with Andy and it seems like they are working hard to fix several of the issues so with that said, what's the signal performance like with this thing?

I haven't done any scientific tests but I'm having no problem getting band 41 or LTE in general.

 

On a side note. This is the first phone I had from Sprint that can handoff between WiFi calling and LTE calling.

I played with one in the store a week or so ago. It felt very nice in hand, and it seemed very fast. I haven't been following the news on the phone to look for issues and real user feedback. I'll try to find the Reddit thread when I have a few minutes.

The biggest issue I'm having is with the camera app sometimes force closing.

 

The OS is running pretty good for me. I did have a random reboot when leaving my house using Android Auto. Other than that the phone has run smoothly.

 

The hardware feels so good in the hand and it feels more durable than the new Samsung. I don't know if it is though.

Enjoying my PH1, just need to keep fixing stuff with each update and camera update.

 

Solid build just some bugs in the phones software.

    • Nothing to do anything about number of customers... How are they not on par with the big two?  TMobile is crushing it for data in all the major markets.  If TMobile can execute their 2017 coverage map goal, they will be on par with AT&T, which is considered to be in the same coverage league as VZW.  So yes, TMobile will be in this club come 2018. https://www.t-mobile.com/coverage/lte-comparison-map
    • This is a reach. AT&T and Verizon still have twice as many customers as T-Mobile and even if they added 2 Million customers per quarter it would take 8 years before they got to VZ and AT&T's current size, assuming VZW or AT&T don't have any growth at all. We can acknowledge T-Mobile's accomplishments without making it seem like they're nearly on par with the big two. In terms of data speed, sure. In terms of price, they're approaching it too. However, you won't be able to find the consistency of the duopoly's network nationwide on T-Mobile right now. That'll take quite a bit more infill sites. That's why given Sprint's "non-announcement" of 8K macro sites for expansion, I'm glad to see it's not a huge expansion because we know that they're going for reliability over square mileage.
    • burnout8488-   Probably about 30 minutes a day.  I mostly text and web browse with it. Galaxyguy-         I didn't add any other apps at that same time...  Of course, Samsung has installed a number of apps around then and in the last week that I have no use for-  I'll watch to see if indeed my battery rebounds or continues to suck.
    • And in terms of this, TMobile already does on many fronts.  They constantly prove to be #1 in so many data tests. Verizon and TMobile are essentially #1/2 in terms of data speeds and they are the most constrained carriers in terms of spectrum.  In terms of Coverage, TMobile continues to show us how they will be on par with VZW/AT&T soon and do continue to deliver with expanded coverage. TMobile is well on its way without Sprint to be equal to VZW/AT&T.  So that is three strong nationwide carriers with Sprint still being a forth option if absolute total native coverage is less a concern.  They are well on their way to provide fast speeds within existing coverage areas.  Honestly, with a little stronger rural coverage and less dead zones TMobile will be the nations #2 carrier ahead of AT&T.
    • I don't recall anyone saying they expect pricing to further reduce in either scenario...Sprint going alone nor a merger with Tmo.
