Heh, it's on the fringe of the Athens-Atlanta market. I was just there this weekend (and the Sensorly traces are mostly mine)... got better and more consistent 4G there than in Athens proper.

I have a question about sensorly. It might be a dumb question but on my Galaxy Nexus I have the radio set to CDMA only to help conserve battery since I don't currently have any LTE. I have sensorly set to map my route automatically when I start driving. Will it be able to detect any LTE or do I have to switch my phone to CDMA/LTE mode?

 

60% of the time it works every time!

As far as I have seen, and others have confirmed this too... there is no appreciable battery life difference between "CDMA-Only" and "CMDA/LTE". Might as well leave it on LTE.

I have been getting LTE in various locations around west Nashville and the metro center but it doesn't last long and seems to be the wrong time zone. Is this normal before it is turned on for good? I have been making several sensorly readings and speed tests, runs great when on.

I have not seen LTE here but everything I have read about areas starting up that is normal. They are still testing and getting approvals.

Just got my Optimus G a couple nights ago, and am seeing spotty glimpses of LTE around Shrewsbury/Worcester, MA. I notice, however, there is quite a lag when the phone can't get LTE and has to switch back to 3g to its thing. Can't wait for it to finish though.

Sensorly keeps screwing up for me. I turn on 4G (wimax) and load er up.....but whenever I get near a wifi signal I automatically get kicked off 4G and put into wifi, even if its the kind of wifi that requires browser log in. Giant pain.

Thats not the Sensorly App. Thats you having your WIFI on and set to connect to open networks. Turn off the WIFI before leaving the house

No it actually is sensorly.

 

I turn off wifi, turn on 4g. Open browser, Im fine. Open facebook, Im fine. Open sensorly....immediatly phone switches from 4g to wifi.

Got the connection optimizer running?

You'll find it in your network settings. New Samsungs are settings > (wireless/network) More settings > Mobile Networks.

 

Click on it and it will let you disable.

 

In case you aren't familiar with it, all it does and keep switching on your WIFI and trying to connect to save strain on the network and probably give you a better experience. But, for testing signal, etc. it's a must to turn it off.

Interesting that no one figured this out yet with all the Sensorly devotees around, but I'll help you out.

 

When you open Sensorly, go to the settings, and scroll down to General. Chances are you have both "Scan WiFi networks" and "Force WiFi on" checked. Just uncheck those, and all will be well.

The reason for this is that both LTE and CDMA are not only one chipset, but also both the same frequency, just different blocks, so Id see no reason this should deplete battery life. If anything, running on the eHRPD via CDMA/LTE rather than EVDO on CDMA-Only would be a better experience since eHRPD runs over LTE backside, thus faster data to look up what you want, even by only a bit, meaning less time the phone is being used by having data running, screen on, etc, meaning a longer battery life in the long run. Aside from this, Sprint Optimization Manger in the phone will periodically turn on for brief periods of time WiFi, 3G, 4G, etc to see if it can connect to a better signal, turn off the other radios, and save battery life that way. It will not keep the radios on searching like previous WiMAX devices (which eventually were set to turn on, scan a few times, then power down but not off totally)...This way is better, however, it does have a bad habit of connecting to "log-into WiFi Network" hotspots quite often. Turning it off however will enable all radios to be on, if they are set to be on. So be sure to turn off radios that are not needed. In this case, CDMA-Only with WiFi OFF would be the battery saver, however, possibly negated by the slower data, requiring the phone screen and radio to be in active mode more, so.....

eHRPD does not mean faster data. In most markets, where there is no new network yet, eHRPD just routs the traffic a different direction, does not mean it is any faster. But this is far off topic.

Was indeed checked, will now disable.

 

 

Anyone know why the dominican republic shows sprint 3g coverage reported by users?

eHRPD does not mean faster data. In most markets, where there is no new network yet, eHRPD just routs the traffic a different direction, does not mean it is any faster. But this is far off topic.

 

In my experience, eHRPD vs EVDO has performed better with not only faster speeds, but 2-3x less latency. Even you said it yourself routing traffic in a different direction - that can mean faster in many areas, I have done speed tests on CDMA-Only as well as CDMA/LTE (which uses eHRPD) and I have been able to determine that it really is faster. Not saying the technology is that much different, but the fact that it will route through a different way using the eHRPD means is definitely a bonus for me, who used to get 50-300kbps regularly, I easily see 600-2500kbps. Also, that is not off topic if I am responding to how and why it works.

After eHRPD went live here, my speeds have dropped, and latency has increased, so you just happened to be lucky. Have you read the thread discussing eHRPD and what it is?

 

This thread is about sensorly, if you would like to continue the discussion, I would ask we move it to the eHRPD thread. Thank you.
