Well I am getting about a 25dbm loss of signal when I hold the phone on the bottom. I am going from 75-80 to 100-105. This from the 1x engineering screen


Yep, I wrote about that in my article:

http://s4gru.com/index.php?/blog/1/entry-342-updated-all-for-htc-one-htc-one-for-all/

 

First, the dual antenna system is optimized for CDMA1X/EV-DO on antenna 0 and LTE on antenna 1. But as long as only one antenna is in use (i.e. SVLTE is not active), the dual antennas can be switched at will to combat an RF fade at one antenna but not the other.


Antenna 0 is on the bottom. Make a call so that the CDMA1X transmitter is active, and I would not be surprised to see the HTC One shift to antenna 1, which is on top. It is optimized for LTE, not CDMA1X, but it should certainly be in better position than the 25 dB fade experienced at antenna 0.

Ok after screwing around I can confirm that it switches antenna's when I make a call. Can it not use antenna 1 when connected to LTE? because that might be a problem.

All I want to know is how it compares to note2 on battery life and signal catching/holding.

 

I really like the htc style and sense is way better than tflow (dual window mode aside), in my experience with previous phones.

 

I can't wait for someone to do a detailed shootout between the note2/s4/htc1.

This is by far the best sounding phone I have ever had. My roommate cannot believe that my phone speakers sounded that good. Sounds better/louder than my 17 in macbook pro

Passable for listening to music?

Opened up a box and played with one here. Speakers are loud and very nice, screen looks amazing. Build quality is solid. Curved back makes it wobble on tables. Android UI is fast and smooth. I've never seen Sense move so quickly and lag so little. Either Sense 5 is a total rewrite, or the new Snapdragon 600 is just that good. Power button is a little hard to use. Also noticed the signal fade for 1X; when looking at engineering screens, the EV-DO signal was +0.23, which I figured must be wrong. Camera seems to work well. Only two navbuttons is weird, but putting appswitch on double-tap-home works well, and the new Sense appswitcher works a lot better than the EVO LTE's "cards".

 

Overall, I like it. The lack of SD card slot makes me shy away a little bit, as I have all my data on one, but 32 GB of storage is great.

 

Overall, from a first impression, I rather like it. We'll see if Sammy's extra $50 will be worth it.

Thats what i was worried about that it would rock on a flat surface, but the cases for it all have flat backsides so as soon as i find one i like i will be getting it right away!

This looks a pretty neat compromise option in lieu of an SD slot.

That's a really cool project. Sadly, I'm not gonna run around with an OTG thing sticking out my slot all the time. Definitely something to stick in my "bag of goodies".

Do you think a ota will fix it, or maybe a case? I ask this because if I am in a fringe area it really affects the phones service.

 

No. You are missing the point. Read my article and the entire thread. The HTC One has two antenna arrays for a reason. If one is in a fade, it can switch to the other.

I understand, but what I notice is happening with the lte antenna is that it won't switch. In other words it stays at a weak signal until I move my hand.

    • Did my drive from PHX to SEA & got to experience the terribleness that is the totem lake area. Impressive, speed test didn't complete either time.
    • Weird that they'd go back to the Edge+. Would think they'd let folks use the S22 just like with Genesis. In other news, St. Louis has 10x10 n71 + n66 SDL live. A bit more info here:  
    • Wonder what other spectrum the auto industry can use, how much of the 5.9GHz was being used, and if 30MHz will be enough 20 or 30 years from now. The auto industry has had it for 20 years sure, but technology can move really slow.  It isn't good.  It isn't ready for real world applications. The hardware is too slow to be able to process enough reliable data. It is too expensive.  Etc. I would argue that we are just getting to the point where features that I would assume could use 5.9GHz are just now hitting mass market as the code is better, hardware is not only significantly faster but also cheaper. The baseline trim models still lack a lot of safety features but the next trim up usually comes with a bunch of goodies I'd assume could make use of 5.9GHz. Just imagine where we were in 2005, 2010, 2015.  Mostly just assumptions without enough knowledge of the spectrum use, so a hint of skepticism. With the what, 1.2GHz that opened up in the 6GHz range, getting 45MHz out of 5.9GHz is very meh.
    • Cool find! Been there since 2018 according to Cellmapper. The only other time I've seen them leave up a temp site like this for a long period of time was when a nearby site is temporarily inoperable like the one in Red Hook Houses. That doesn't seem to be the case here and it's pretty much a GMO site at this point. My best guess is that T-Mobile wanted to put a site there to fill in coverage but because it's on LGA's grounds getting the actual permission to do so is extremely complex so they worked out a deal with the Port Authority to put up a COW in the meantime.  
    • Would this be a T-Mobile COW outside LGA Terminal A? eNB 49106 seems to line up to its position, plus the arm for the trailer to hook onto a truck says T-Mobile. Here is the NYC streetcar view the image was pulled from.     For all the years I have been monitoring the DAS, I have never gotten -55 or better, even after passing by every antenna in a station that is deep enough to have 0 outside macros reaching in. The SNR is still 20+, so its probably designed that way on purpose.
