Bold 4G LTE Lineup from Sprint Gains Four New Powerhouse Devices

 

"These four new 4G LTE additions will be available this fall and will provide customers powerful devices that fit their lifestyles:

-Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 is the first tablet to combine the benefits of Sprint 3G and 4G LTE with a vivid 10.1-inch touchscreen display, Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich and a 1.5GHz dual-core processor.

-LG Optimus G features an advanced 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, making it a dream device for photo lovers who are ready to leave their point-and-shoot at home and just carry their smartphone.

-LG Mach makes 4G LTE accessible as an inexpensive yet sleek smartphone with a full QWERTY keyboard and Sprint ID.

-Sprint Plug-in-Connect Tri-Mode USB brings Sprint 3G/4G/4G LTE directly to a laptop through a USB connection."

 

No exact dates.. says "this fall."

LG Optimus G is the new android super phone. Move over GS3. I need this in my life ASAP :D

 

The new LG Nexus is rumored to be based off same hardware(minus camera). That means AOSP on the Optimus G should be a breeze. [READ AS: Good for future updates from the XDA dev community]

 

13MP camera could be good news.. or it could just mean more noise in our picture due to poor senors.

 

The Optimus G also does not use on-screen buttons like the rumored LG Nexus will have.. which means the Optimus G makes better use of the bottom bezel space as well as frees up the screen real estate.

Unfortunately, it's made by LG

My first thoughts exactly! But who can you trust now? Samsung burned me with the Epic 4G so I decided on the EVO LTE, then HTC burned me on that one and the Samsung seemed to be the device to get. Definitely be sitting out buying any phone until after it was launched a couple of months.

I hope for a phone that will be supported by the dev community for around 2 years. Usually that's only reserved for Nexus phones, but the OG EVO did pretty well in that respect.

 

This site will be very helpful in finding my next phone and I will probably sit out a month until antenna reviews come in and the first price cut hits.

While the epic may have been slow to start it has nearly every rom known to man now. The AOSP builds have no issues and are kept up. Evo LTE, idk on that one.

 

My Evo 3D is pretty limited rom and update wise. I'm liking sense a lot and the custom rom I'm using has ported in Jelly Bean features (mainly google now), so I'm not really complaining now but with new features in future releases, I'll be tempted to switch later.

As tempting as it may be with LTE, I won't buy a carrier subsidized 2 year contract tablet without/until they have unlimited data. I will stick with either a clear unlimited hotspot or tether plan and a cheaper wifi model.

No complaints on the roms for the Epic. Loved CM on it. The radio was flaky and so was the gps.

Unfortunately for me clear isn't available in my area. If it was I wouldn't be able to see myself adding another 2 year shackle to my ankle. An LTE nexus 7 or tab 2 7" with an unlimited plan would be perfect timing for the rollout in my market.

I thought the devs figured out how to put the Crespo4G radios on it and the performance improved drastically.

you don't have to sign up for 2 years now on clear, you can get hotspot or usb dongle at best buy for 50 bucks or less (but they did make me activate the first month), but you can cancel any time.

The Optimus G has a nice sized camera, and comes with 32GB built in storage & 2GB RAM. Move over GS III, there's a new top dog in town.

With the release of these 4 devices & the Galaxy Note II, Sprint now has 13 of the 15 LTE devices they promised for 2012.

I have to admit, the specs look very tempting but AFAIK, LG has lousy support for their devices. Maybe an lg based nexus would be a good idea now that I've seen the potential behind lg.

I am really interested in playing with the LG Optimus G.

 

Maybe you and Josh could set up an LG play date.

 

:P

Unfortunately I am working in Salt Lake City on business for the next several months.

 

And I'm too busy working so I can buy a new and better phone for me. Click here to see it.

    • Luckily, that hasn't arisen in my area where I am, aside from having B14 (well, ALL of AT&T signal) not work at all in Coosa county, Alabama. I wish there was a service for first responders that would go to ANY available carrier, provider, etc..and in the absolute worst case scenario, would give us service. I've been on an ambulance, trying to find an address, and my driver actually had to pull over and we pulled out a map book and tried to find the road using the "old fashioned way".. and that takes valuable time away that sometimes may be vital to someone surviving. BUT, I will say that I've only seen that in Coosa county... both my Tmo and AT&T phones had zero service and I couldn't get GPS, and neither could my driver (VZW service). Maybe satellite will help with that in those times where that occurs.. but that's an extreme example.     Edit to add: Let me add some context to this.. Coosa county isn't regular coverage area for my job.. so it's not a regular thing that we are dispatched to Coosa county.. and actually, there's been a change and that county now has it's own ambulance service that operates.. so the only time we might receive a request is if it's a multiple casualty scenario, or it's a transfer going home from our contracted hospital.  The way that reads above, it may seem like we are just out without some sort of GPS gadget to direct us on where to go, but for the most part, we know our coverage area pretty well. Dispatch can also give us cross streets for reference inside our coverage area (and our home county). Coosa just isn't a regular area for my job to run in. 
    • "Priority" doesn't mean "exclusivity."  When emergency services don't need B14, AT&T can use it for everyone else.  The trade-off is that when it is needed for emergency services, they not only get all of B14, but they have also arranged for priority on the rest of the AT&T network as well.  Beats having spectrum sitting unused most of the time and then not having enough when disaster strikes, as it could be without a partnership with a wireless company like AT&T. - Trip
    • I've wondered if being on the first responder plan has the priority over other 'regular' lines in the same way firstnet does (or, supposed to do with B14...I've seen normal customers on AT&T hit B14 so it's not {specifically} for Firstnet only)...  
    • T-Mobile prices people pay are all over the map. The free lines are key, so take them if ever offered again.  Your priority level would be a key factor for your price.  Only T-Mobile would know the average prices people pay.  Samsung has been offering very good deals at time of new model introductions so I have gone that route for factory unlocked, which allows me to also have a Verizon priority MVNO for when T-Mobile signal fails or I manually override.
    • I also wanted to post a speed test result.. I only do these once in a while from my home area because we are gonna be the last to see changes, like load balancing.  Right now they are digging all over the place for fiber installs, so I'm not sure what the hold-up is on making the upload speed a little more in-line with download speeds, but here is the most recent from my area:   https://www.speedtest.net/my-result/a/10133670525
