Probably the MDL --> MF9 firmware update. Some of the changes are listed here, with the highlight imo being the ability to move some Google Play apps to the memory card. It's unclear if the update also includes some of the features the Germans got like HDR video recording and a fix for the purple smearing issue.

It has yet to show up on my Sprint Galaxy S4.  I even tried to force it manually.  So far, crickets.

The "Active Apps Manager" is a different color.  And the first time I got the lock screen it didn't say "Life Companion" or show the time.  I also got an error telling me my sim card had been removed that didn't go away until I reset the phone.  Other than that, I haven't noticed anything.

I have mine downloaded w/root.     This is some of the the features the update includes, and it also has some new camera firmware. I don't know what the new camera firmware consists of haven't really looked into it.

There is a lot of changes in the MF9 update and I'm not going to list them all. But it is a big update that helps this phone out a lot.

    • I did double check, but it was doing about 2GB a day at 2.4 GHz and about 3GB a day on 5GHz.  Now it's maybe couple hundred MB a day.  Perhaps it's a slow rollout. To be honest, I haven't tried VoLTE on MB yet.  Sounds like it's time to give it a whirl... BTW. This is all in San Francisco.
    • What we nned to see is a fully converted. market
    • All depends on the terrain/intended coverage area, sector alignment/tilt and antennas used. Wide beam antennas in a 4-sector 90° configuration can actually do a lot of damage to the SNR. Alternatively narrow beam antennas at a 3-sector 120° can leave big coverage holes between sectors. It's a pretty interesting balancing act.
    • I am not enjoying this t-mobile 5G in Astoria Queens or even LTE for that matter. Here is comparison between the 2 today at Astoria park. This area had even faster speeds before Sprint 5G was shut down. T-Mobile really needs to expand the N41 coverage outside of Manhattan asap. Some how Sprint really delayed it fast.

    • I'm still getting 50-90 Mbps (depending on how close I am to it). You might want to double check that it didn't fall to 2.4 GHz. Mine is Ethernet backhauled though.VoLTE has been live for many months on all the femtos. They don't need to cap anything for it to work. In my experience using LTE backhaul on a magic box with VoLTE, it didn't do well at congestion control (was cutting out because the donor was congested), so I'm skeptical that they tunnel VoLTE over a prioritized EUTRA session on relay. So if they aren't doing something as "basic" as this when they completely control the network, they almost certainly won't be doing anything on wifi or Ethernet backhaul to try to give VoLTE special treatment.
