Should I trade an EVO LTE for Samsung S3 plus $50

Recommended Posts

I was on craigslist today and someone wants to trade a 16GB S3 for an EVO LTE plus $50. They want the box and original docs, which I don't have. They don't like the Samsung interface is why they want to trade.

 

Would you make the trade?

Personally, I wouldn't get rid of the EVO. If LTE connection issues are the main problem, those will diminish (hopefully go away) once the KC market is done. I know I didn't have any troubles with my EVO in the Lenexa and Olathe areas.

 

I bought a GS3 off eBay so that when I'm testing LTE areas I know that I'm not having any issues, but as a day to day phone, I stick to my EVO. I just like it better. Feels better in my hand, the Sense skin is better than Touchwiz, and the camera is better.

Thanks Dkoellerwx, that's encouraging to hear for someone to just bought an Evo LTE. I feel the same way about the EVO, which is why I chose to overlook the potential LTE issues. (Hope that doesn't bite me in the butt).

Afterthought--- I also don't like Craigslist.... but let that have nothing to do with your decision. :P

Everything you say is true but think of it like this. Most people have had the thing for 6 months, if deployment in your area hasn't started yet it may be a year total until you get a sniff of LTE. When LTE starts to pop up until deployment is complete you may have to do the toggle thing at least until the market is saturated enough. That might damn near the total of your contract. I'm throwing numbers around of course but I don't think it's unreasonable to think along those lines

That's not to say it wasn't painful when the market first launched, went in and out of LTE a lot. But after the August update, and a number of new towers came online around the same time, I stopped having those issues. I think as digiblur said, the EVO will work better in populated ares with dense LTE than it will in the more rural areas where the signal has a better chance of weakening.

This could very well be true. However, when I was in Sedalia, MO (KS Market) and Nevada, MO (KS Market) I had to toggle my GS3 to get LTE, so it's not just the EVO, especially when you have only islands of LTE. However, the EVO is the worst about it. To me, it's a good enough phone to over look that, especially when you think about the fact that with LTE, comes better 3G (well, hopefully) which will satisfy most needs of your phone. If seeing that 4G icon at the top is the most important thing, then maybe the GS3, or Note 2 for that matter, is the better phone.

Right, I wouldn't own the EVO LTE unless I was in a very saturated tower market and never left. Something like New York City type of saturation. Hell, even though I don't personally use the EVO LTE anymore, I'd still cough up $50 of my own money to swap out the EVO LTE still on my account.

      I was taking a look at the HTC 5G Hub that's supposed to be launching on Sprint sometime this month. It looks like it could technically be Sprint's first foray into the WISP space. On HTC's site they mention it as a sort of replacement for your WiFi router with the ability to connect up to 20 devices to it. I wonder what data caps will be on this when it launches and what they plan on charging people for using it?
      It seems to be a lot of things smashed into one device. It's combining a wireless router, a streaming box, and a cloud gaming device all into one. It also has support for pretty much every U.S. LTE band.

      What are everyone's thought on the HTC U 12+?
    • By leozno1
      Figured the HTC U11 needs to have it's own thread as opposed to having that conversation in the HTC U Ultra thread.
       
      Pretty interesting article that has me excited about this phone. As the U11 seems to be leading Sprint's march towards Gigabit LTE.

      The rumor mill has fully geared up, so it seems time for a thread in which the potential HTC-made 2016 Nexus phones can be discussed.
       
      Rumors suggest two phones: a 5" device codenamed Sailfish, and a larger device codenamed Marlin. Both are thought to be produced by HTC. [There's also a report that Google is making its own phone, without an OEM partner--along the lines of a Pixel phone--but that report has been largely discounted.]
       
      Android Police has claimed it knows with 8/10 certainty some specs of the smaller device--Sailfish:
      Manufactured by HTC 5" 1080p display (~440PPI) Quad-core 2.0GHz 64-bit processor (model unknown) 4GB RAM 2770mAh battery 32GB storage (unknown if multiple models will be available, or even if this is the base storage level) 12MP rear camera, 8MP front Rear-mounted fingerprint scanner USB-C port (bottom) Bottom-firing speaker or speakers (unknown if dual) Top-mounted headphone jack Bluetooth 4.2 Any thoughts on these devices? The last several Nexus devices have been Sprint compatible; is there any reason to think these won't be? Any hints in regulatory filings? How is HTC's radio performance, generally? Will Sprint sell them directly, and even if they do, will it still be preferable to buy directly from Google?

    • It seems really big to me, but I have to admit I'm considering it.  The dual screen thing seems moderately interesting.  I'd be interested in trying it out.  EDIT:  But Best Buy has the G8X on sale right now at a very sensible price.  It's comparable in size to my G6, versus the V60 which, having looked at the dimensions, seems enormous by comparison.  My G6 is already at the very top end of what would fit in my hand.  If I got the V60, it'd be solely for the ability to use 5G, which I don't really need other than for tracking purposes--and right now, I think it's pretty safe to assume that a site with 600 MHz LTE on T-Mobile or a Massive MIMO antenna on Sprint is running 5G without having to prove it that way. - Trip
    • Official LG intro video:  
    • Any thoughts on the included dual-screen? Doesn't seem like something I'd use, would be nice to have an option where it's not included, maybe for a slightly lower price.  Battery size is nice! LG lagged a little behind on the battery for the G series for a while. https://www.cnet.com/news/hands-on-lg-v60-thinq-5g-with-8k-video-and-dual-screen/
