Since I know that Josh is going to ask...

 

SVLTE, yes. SVDO, no.

waiting on 800 lte....for next device for me

 

I doubt that LTE 800 will make its debut in a low to mid range device, which is what this is. However, stranger things have happened.

Very little chance that this is a Windows Phone. Its model number is just one digit removed from that of the One SV on Cricket.

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.

Upgrades? Robert doesn't need no stinkin' upgrades...to get more handsets.

this phone is LTE band 25, that is 1900

 

Is that a statement or a question?

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!

i'm just saying...

 

Okay. Do you not think that everyone here at this Sprint LTE focused site is already well aware of that fact?

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?

None that I know of currently, but you ought to take a look at this thread:

    • Another SCP beta is rolling out now, with some bugfixes as usual but also some fun new options to test: Non-standalone 5G-NR cells can now display Site Notes. This feature works in the same manner as how neighbor cell notes are displayed, requiring a PCI and your device's location. This option is enabled by default. As is the case with neighbor cell notes, you cannot edit NSA site notes directly unless there is an NCI being reported (which I have never seen); it uses the previously recorded standalone log entries. Like neighbor notes, if a cell has been previously logged but there is no note, you will see the distance information only.   Logging cells that are not reporting a valid PLMN is now possible. This option is disabled by default, but if you enable it along with two other options (log sites with missing GCI/NCI and to log sites with missing TAC), you should begin logging most NSA 5G-NR cells. A PCI is needed at a minimum, which is not always reported depending on your device and network factors. ("Sites" will be renamed to "cells" on the Preferences menu in the next update.)   Users can enable an option to display LTE cells above 5G-NR cells in the app if they choose to do so. This option is disabled by default. Should help improve the readability of your screen if you have NSA 5G-NR cells constantly appearing/disappearing. Please give these options a try and let me know if you notice any issues.. thanks!
    • Not yet. We probably won't see one submitted until construction on the new building is substantially complete. 
    • Yes, that is where the site used to be. All the antennas were removed. I hope they add a new site soon. Have any permits been submitted for a new site?
    • Looks like there's a slightly taller building going up next door to where the decommissioned site used to be. Taking a look at StreetView, T-Mobile likely decommissioned the site because the east facing sector would blocked by the new building. If I had to guess, T-Mobile has already agreed to move to the roof of the new building and is just waiting for it to be completed to install the site there. What they should've done is just rearrange the sectors in the meantime but it seems like T-Mobile just bit the bullet and decommed the tower in the short term. — — — — — A permit was issued for a Sprint conversion at 150 Prospect Park West, finally filling in what is T-Mobile's largest coverage gap in Park Slope. Verizon is collocated on that building and AT&T has placed small cells along Prospect Park West to fill in coverage there while T-Mobile struggled using two sites, one at Grand Army Plaza at the far north and another at Bartel Pritchard Square to the far south.
