HTC One max [Tri-Band] (was "HTC "Phablet" aka "T6"")

A ceramic body, and LTE speeds up to 300mbps. Carrier aggregation?

Edit: just found this article:http://m.androidcentral.com/htc-one-m8-prime-rumored-exotic-material-composition-faster-lte

Cat 6 LTE. Sweet.

Sent from my Nexus 5

seen the article and that maybe one of the first sprint devices that supports carrier aggregate of two 20mhz TDD channels. So that alone is sweet. What isn't is losing .4 in screen real estate if its a max replacement.

That's what I'm sad about :(. I love the size of my one max pretty much prefect sized for me. And I feel like it'd feel like a downgrade.

They had me go into the boot loader to do it.

On my way home from work I had no GPS issues.

are you still working with out issues because the problem doesn't seem fixed for me on my end. GPS is still a mess when using Google maps. Imma see if I can use a different app with different results.

Not sure if you mentioned this before or not but did you perform a hardreset?

GPS is still a mess, along with the bluetooth.

Ive noticed that when I reboot the GPS usually locks in and does ok.

I did something to screw up my charging port and am getting another max hopefully by Tuesday. :(

There was some mention that the GPS issue may "possibly" be related to 800mhz B26 LTE.... sounds far fetch but several user report their GPS even on different devices have been going bonky about the time they saw B26 LTE and I know mine been like that since i traveled to Austin Texas and hit B26 LTE but its still having issue back in chicago without B26 LTE

 

generally I'm kind of disappointed with the reception performance of the one max, signal is consistently weaker than the S4 on B25 and B41 reception is always bad anywhere unless you happen to be very close to a tower.

 

LTE performance speed wise have alot to do with signal strength (when the airwave or backhaul is not congested)  Typically when my phone scan and lock on to B41, the signal is so low that the speedtest would be little if any faster than B25 at the same location.  but moving closer to the tower and improving the B41 signal strength increases speed by alot (i have hit 40-60mbps on good signals -80dbm or so).

there may be some truth to the band 26 in GPS because as of recently and I don't want to jinx it the performance of the GPS mapping has been better. So whatever issues there where have been worked out it seems. In regards to the speed performance I don't think the radio is asking as a nexus 5 or LG g2 those phones have hit up to 70 mbps. I don't think a max has come close it out maybe hitting 60 at max I know I've only hit 56 personally.

on a side note today taking my phone off turn ons and getting back home I noticed that I hit close to 7 hours of on screen time! That's the best I've had since my power Flip Case died. This is a combination of turning off auto brightness when I didn't need it and staying on wifi and no signal areas.

Is there any way for you to take a screen cap and post it here?

For me personally the max and the m8 perform about the same when it comes to lte connectivity, which is a good thing.

How is the sound quality in the earpiece during a call on the One Max?  I read one review that said it really didn't get adequately loud enough.   Also, how does it sound to the party on the other end?  Thanks!

My max been sitting on my desk for a few months now but when I was using it I didn't have any issues with call quality, I could easily hear the other person clearly.  After I finished using I gave it to my girl to use for a while and when talking to her I could hear her just fine.  No complaints from me or her when it came to call performance.

Thanks!

And I feel with my one max it's almost the opposite I almost feel like my earpiece can't be turned down enough... But I guess some people just have bigger mouths then others lol

So I figured out the GPS issues i've been suffering from.

 

Apparently Wifi Calling was causing it... I'm guessing the Wifi calling E911 feature was overriding the GPS, which makes it so that when i leave the house its not de-overriding correctly meaning I had to reboot my phone everytime I left the house to get GPS working again.

Where's lollipop? It's been well over 90 days or is this phone not a flagship.

This phone isn't getting lollipop. I checked the HTC support page,and it looks like they gave up on it.

I asked a representative, and he said that it will not see the update.

    • In some of southern OH they are simply missing Sprint coverage, which has been an on again off again problem for Sprint.  For example there is a macro cell site in Ripley OH along the Ohio River and US 62.  You also get Shentel around Maysville, KY also on US 62.  They do keep tinkering with LTE roaming data.  Still have noticed issues on once you get on AT&T LTE roaming getting off often requires airplane modeing.
    • Should be able to draw some good interest once we get these torn down and figured out. Expect lots of proprietary protocol so finding a comm port on the modem will be tricky if that is your thing. Getting an antenna design going is what I am excited for most. All I can do with the software is try to break it hard enough in the most blatant manner possible.  I have to be nice to this case though, I shredded a MR100 Nighthawk and a couple of magic boxes no problem, I'm trying to keep this thing at least a few more months, so I am excited to see what I can come up with. If you manage to teardown Sprint's premiere 5G home router and set up some externals that would be really neat to see.   Jim @LTEfix is great. We boomer chat on facebook and get confused by all the software, bitmaps and such. He really has a great domestic business going sourcing all this stuff. Thanks to his services I have an elaborate junkyard going and now 3 year Ever Improving LTE Internet Project. 
    • Doesn't look like it. It only supports Band 2, 4, 5, 12, 13, 17, 26, 41, 66, and LTE-U. It also doesn't have CDMA support. That said, U.S. variants of Samsung phones tend to have U on the end of their name while international variants tend to be F. This is the international variant.
    • Something interesting I discovered is it still shows voice roaming in most of these areas. 
    • I'm noticing some new giant dead spots along I-29 in ND now. Central MN as well. Also SE MN, central MI, southern OH, parts of KY, VA, NC, SC, GA. It's like they just went in and carved some areas out. Seems like they cut out along major interstates. Maybe a cost saving measure to remove roaming?
