Its decision to cut the Galaxy S III's contract price to $99 supposedly helped Samsung's flagship climb from 14 percent of Sprint sales in October to 39 percent over the more recent 3-month span. The Galaxy S III didn't play as much of a role elsewhere, Kantar says.

 

That's a lot of LTE devices. At least half the devices sold should be lte. Should be more purple on the map!

It thrills me that Sprint is willing to be aggressive with Samsung and Android with the Fruit in its stable. When sprint got the iphone, critics babbled that Sprint would have to become an "Iphone shop" to meet its agreed purchase. Well, this is proof that Hesse didn't see it that way and he was right.

 

Would love to see Sprint score an exclusive on the S4....

Honestly I believe the days of exclusives are long over for mainstream high profile devices (GS3, GNote, etc.)

Pardon, I meant initial exclusive. Theres no chance of sprint getting an exclusive device, but it would be awesome if sprint had the s4 for sale a couple weeks before everyone else

Unfortunately, so far there appear to be only two high enough profile devices to avoid exclusives. Besides the iphone and the Galaxy Sx there isn't another device that can achieve carrier pervasiveness. HTC is trying with it's One phone, but it couldn't get vzw on board. And nokia still only has devices on ATT.

Yeah but other than Verizon, everyone else is getting the One, and I'm also considering global carriers as well.

I agree, but I think Samsung would just do a global launch, similar to Apple.

    • Yet another "Carrier" move: T-Mobile users have only now discovered sneaky change made in May
    • Went to Hurricane Harbor again this past weekend, this time testing Verizon and T-Mobile. In my testing, Verizon is now the fastest carrier, at least on the Hurricane Harbor sector. Despite it being pretty overcast on Saturday with temperatures in the mid-80's the park was at full capacity.  Verizon had 160MHz of n77 and T-Mobile now has 160MHz of n41. On LTE I was seeing speeds in the range of 50-100Mbps while T-Mobile's LTE on was completely swamped, barely crossing 3Mbps. While both carriers only have a single high capacity sector (facing Great Adventure, Verizon benefits from having CBRS deployed on all sectors. This is an extra 60-100MHz of capacity that T-Mobile doesn't have. Maybe when T-Mobile gets around to deploying their C-band we'll see a boost in speeds again to be more competitive with Verizon. On the 5G side of things, T-Mobile's speeds were just over half that of Verizon.  That said, neither carrier was slow and I had zero issue using Xbox Cloud Gaming on T-Mobile despite their weaker upload speeds and higher ping.  
    • I think the newer ones have signal bars on them. I took a photo of one in Red Hook a month or two ago that had the same design.
    • Well well, looks like we found one of the two Link5G towers that might actually have 5G. Notice anything different? This one has the same signal bars icon that the pole mounted 5G oDAS units have. It’s in Chinatown at East Broadway and Forsyth St. It’s impossible to tell what carrier it is, though.
