I'm probably done buying devices until the first Windows Phone LTE device or the first flagship LTE 800 or LTE 2600 device hits.

Could it be that Robert is running low on upgrades.

why the hell would HTC put such a low res screen on this? I actually thought it looked appealing as an alternative to the mega handsets now dominating the market, hoping it was like a souped up Rezound...but it's not even that good.

 

Seems like a slightly souped up version of the OG EVO with that crappy 800x400 res!

Hi guys...

 

I was with Sprint/Nextel for 10+ years. It is cool watching the network upgrades/4G LTE... Anyway, in my area, I do not use roaming and have wimax devices with no wimax service.So I went from EVO 3D Sprint to the same device at Virgin Mobile. I am saving $30/month.

 

Anyway, I am looking at the Boost Mobile HTC One SV as an upgrade (I love SENSE UI) (the specs. appear to be the same as the EVO 3D for the most part). I would be upgrading to get the 4G LTE which will be in my area some day.

 

So what are your thoughts on going from the qHD screen to the 480 x 800 screen? Has anyone had experience with this? The phones screen appears brighter, but I dont want to look at large pixels all the time. Also, with the 3D layer, would this lesser res. screen look better in that regard?

 

THANKS IN ADVANCE!!!

qHD is only 540x960. You would not likely notice a big difference between qHD and 480x800. Now, if you were coming from a 720x1280 screen, that would be another story...

Well the evo 3d will offer about 35% more pixels in the same 4.3" screen but the overall screen brightness and clarity will probably be better on the one sv. I think an important factor is usability in the sunlight which would be a huge advantage to the one sv, the evo 3d was probably the worst phone ever to use in direct sunlight.

AJ, thanks for your response... I was just wondering since the new phone (SV) is 217 dpi and the old one (3D) is 256 dpi. Thanks again!!! On the other hand, are there any other LTE handsets that are coming to Sprints MVNO's?

    • The powerline tower overlooking downtown Redmond has FINALLY been upgraded. I guess it took this long due to the large birds nest on top of the tower. During the upgrade, they moved all LTE frequencies including B41 to one eNB 84782 and decommissioned eNBs 97521 and 95988. Additionally, the tower finally has all three 5G-SA bands (gNB 1852420). 
    • I have 3 Samsung Galaxy a10e for mapping LTE. For 5G I like the Samsung a32 5g (both factory unlocked).  In both cases try to get one with firmware from the spring of this year.  Then you can use the Samsung Band Selection app no matter what the carrier. Been trying to get my OnePlus Nord n200 5Gs squared away with android 11 and rooted.  OnePlus bought out by Oppo thus service and strategic direction are both problems.  Just getting an e-mail back for the unlock the bootloader process is taking a while. Once we get out of NSA, 5g will be much easier to map. Factory unlocked esim issues are plentiful on high end Samsungs.  My quest is a factory unlocked phone that works well with SCP and Cellmapper for both SA and NSA, with multiple active esims that work easily with MVNOs, functioning VoNR, great reception and transmission, full band support for AT&T and Dish. My next hopeful candidate is the s23.
    • Forgot to mention that I traveled all over the lower Hudson Valley last weekend while using the Verizon eSIM trial to directly both carriers' coverage on one device as opposed to using a second phone. Coverage was virtually the same in my experience with the biggest exception being the Bear Mountain region. All along the Long Mountain Parkway from Woodbury Common going east, coverage remained virtually the same. Both carriers reported similar signal strength going all the way down to 1 bar at the same times but when I arrived at the roundabout near where Long Mountain and Palisades Parkway meet up with one another, Verizon had a much stronger signal compared to T-Mobile's 1 bar. Verizon has a series of sites installed all over Bear Mountain State Park to provide signal to visitors. Unfortunately it doesn't seem like any other carrier attempted to do the same in the 2+ years since they got built. Because of these sites when you're driving on Bear Mountain Bridge and along Bear Mountain Bridge Road going south, Verizon has slightly stronger signal than T-Mobile. — — — — — I'm thinking about buying a burner Android phone to get back into mapping again because I drive around the city a lot and never get the chance to do so. I have a Galaxy S7 Edge in a drawer with an inactive T-Mobile SIM but it doesn't register LTE at all and it doesn't have Band 71 so it's not that useful for me. Any recommendations for phones/plans to map cheaply?
    • So what am I missing???   Why cant i get the s22 ultra do a screen share through cord??  Trying to get it to share to my 10" auto screen. I could enable it with the note 20.. but I cant seem to get this to do it.. All the videos show 1 way, but that setting isnt there.
    • Got the update last night. Broke SCP notifications .... so yay.
