  1. Essentially a sprint exclusive.

    I contacted the Sprint contact on Reddit who has been very helpful with solving these weird issues. Sometimes it takes a while to hear back but I have high hopes.
  2. Essentially a sprint exclusive.

    I'm having the same problem another user mention where there is no upload when connected to Clear B41 sites.

    saw that over on reddit a few weeks ago. I don't know how much I would ever use it but its seem cool to play around with for the first few hours you have it and then it just sits in a drawer. I haven't connected to a clear site with it yet but I will tomorrow morning. I'm just hoping I can at least connect to the clear site that covers my office. So far RF performance has been poor with it.
  4. Essentially a sprint exclusive.

    Got my phone last night and I love the build of it. Very solid heavy phone. My previous phones have been LG G2, Nexus 6, LG G4, and LG V20. Coming from LG phones I am very used to the power button being on the back and it being combined with the finger print reader on the later LG phones. From what I've seen LG is one of the only manufactures that does that. Im not sure why since its only natural to push the back maybe its just my habit. But it also allow you to only have the volume on the side of the phone so you don't hit the wrong buttons. This brings me to one of my dislikes about the Essential. If you are going to put the volume and power buttons near each other they should put some sort of texture on the power button. The nexus 6 had it like this. I can't tell you how many times already I've hit the wrong button on the side. Also I have to say the RF performance on this phone is the worst I've seen. Im getting 3G in many area where there is only GMO B25 sites. Also inside performance is on the edge of B25 and it tends to switch to B26 more often.

    I got asked to go to a job site at work so I wont be in Manhattan tomorrow. I'll be out east on Long Island so at least I get to update my Long Island site map.

    I'll be activating the phone later tonight and I will have it in Manhattan before 9am so you should hear back from me then.

    What was the theoretical on config 1 with those specs? Are Clear sites 2x2 MIMO 64qam DL / 16QAM UL? Do they have the same top speed as Sprint 8t8r and MM's? Obviously they have 1 less carrier but per a 20mhz carrier.
  8. Network Vision/LTE - New York City Market

    I hope this isn't a real thing. I get mine today and I connect mostly to Clear B41 sites in Manhattan and along the LIRR. On a side note I hit 120 Mbps on a MM light post site with only 2xCA, Whats the theoretical maximum speeds now with Config 2? Unfortunately the upload struggled till the end and only maxed at 3 Mbps at the very end.

    sweet i guess the 50 days doesn't apply. I have one coming in today. May or may not be replacing my V20.
  10. Essentially a sprint exclusive.

    Does the Essential come unlocked from Sprint like the Nexus 6 did?

    Im flying out of T5 at the end of January but I'm sure someone will be flying through sooner

    Just saw that tweet. But I noticed he only said tridband DAS and not 3xCA. He mentioned 3xCA for the Chicago airport DAS and those speeds were over 300mbps. Could these JFK DAS be only 2x CA? edit: anyone know if the other terminals have a DAS. The parking lot for T4 has a triband 3xCA site it that covers most of the terminal
  13. Thanks. Going to that area for a few days. I just canceled my t-mobile hotspot/tablet plan. Hopefully AT&T is good with my Mobley
  14. Hows the network in Lake Ariel PA? I see that Scranton is decently covered with B41 but as you move outside the city it is only Standard LTE. And it seems like its also GMO sites that recently went live so its only B25. Is B25 only 5x5 here? Or is there a second B25 Carrier or hopefully its 10 x 10.

    I know where im going for lunch tomorrow...
