Just saw this posted on the XDA P-Q forum:

If it comes to Sprint, I sure hope it is better than the Photon Q. That was a pretty big disappointment for me. Talk about a buggy phone. And then not to have Moto's legendary RF performance either. :(

What kind of bugs have you experienced?  The one consistently glaring thing I've found on the Q is a weird charging bug where in low or almost-nil signal situations (at least this seems to be when I notice it occurring), the phone doesn't charge normally....instead if you go and look at the status screen, you get a 'Not charging' state rather than Charging vs Discharging.  I've read others compare the radios, but I hadn't used a Moto phone prior to this so I have no personal comparative experience.  Coming from the Epic 4G it was an improvement for me in spite of that though.

 

I haven't had much major issue beyond the charging issue.  I did have the screen go out on my first one (not from a display but from a touchscreen angle) and had to get it replaced, but I've been fine with it overall otherwise.

I was thinking the same thing! I find it interesting that the OEM's that I've had the best luck with in the past (any Moto and the OG EVO) are now not very good RF performers and, the phones that used to suck (Samsung, LG) are now great RF performers.  It is for reasons like this, I am finding it harder and harder to have any loyalty towards one specific OEM.

New pic with side by side comparison with the P-Q:

i like it, although i do like my Photon Q so that may make me a bit biased.  Granted I cant remember the specs of the Photon Q off hand but does the specs of this phone seem a bit weak?

    • Great job on your analysis of small cells versus the 3.45GHZ and the population coverage requirements. I wonder if the fcc is stalling because they may address the key limitation of of 2.5: the convoluted frequencies. Not sure how they would get there, but it would be better public policy if you could actually use a single license in current times, ie 5, 10 or 20MHz. Of course they could also go in more of a nonprofit or small business direction. But most likely they will keep it as planned given how messy the transition would be. In many/most metro areas BRS/EBS is fully licensed. Would be nice if they put pressure on the squatters.
    • I didn't actually look at the buildout requirements before making that comment - they're definitely going to have to deploy on macro sites if they want to hit the buildout requirements. PEA001 has a population of 25,237,061, of which they will have to hit 45% in 4 years (11,356,677) and 80% in 8 years (20,189,649). If they were to cover the entirely, all five boroughs, of NYC using only small cells (something I'd say is impossible considering their current small cell density), they'd only be covering 32% of the population in the PEA. And this is with spectrum that only adds 300Mb/s per sector and will likely have only 50% the range of their current n41 equipment. Doesn't really seem worth it to me. I'm of the opinion that they're looking to hedge their bets in further EBS/BRS acquisition. 
    • These strand mounts also are deployed with Band 46 (LAA), in my experience. I have yet to encounter a strand mount with exclusively 2/66. 
    • Bought a esim "sim" card a few weeks ago that operates in all of my more current phones according to its app. It arrived a couple of weeks early from Berlin.  Now if my MVNOs would get moving and support more than iPhones and rarely Pixels so I can test this thing. https://esim.me The only item really troubling so far is reviews in google play store keep getting deleted, even 5 star ones.
