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?

    • Here is how many competitive permits are "remaining" in each state after round 27: (bonus points: reply with the states/territories/districts that are already "settled".) AL 4 AR 1 AS 2 AZ 5 CA 2 CO 53 DE 2 FL 5 GA 48 GU 3 HI 3 IA 40 ID 19 IL 7 IN 19 KS 113 KY 22 LA 9 MA 3 MD 11 ME 1 MI 48 MO 54 MP 10 MS 27 MT 33 NC 12 ND 22 NE 8 NH 1 NJ 2 NM 26 NV 17 NY 6 OH 24 OK 9 OR 2 PA 2 PR 1 SC 12 SD 47 TN 17 TX 36 UT 23 VA 8 WA 22 WI 22 WV 2 WY 11
    • Almost 89% and $250 Million after round 27.
    • Pace picks up a bit.  Round 23.  About 86% now "uncontested" and $223 Million total.  Down to 159 licenses without bids.

Basically Money savings on 2.5 mostly rural auction are funding 600MHz purchases.  Also mentions continuing purchases of 2.5 outright. Likely understates the amount of MHz. Auction going slightly faster with 4 auction sessions per day now, but still less than 80% "settled".  After 18 rounds it is at $190 Million, with $400 to $800 Million expected. could go on for another month.  check here for updates about 1 hour after each round: https://www.sashajavid.com/FCC_Auction108.php#county_details_table_overlay
    • Yeah, I went up to Kitsap on Friday. Was able to connect to several n41 sites as SA only in Port Orchard, Bremerton and Silverdale.  However, I could not get any throughput.  It would say Mobile Data Suspended.  n41 NSA would throughput just fine. Was pushing 500-800 Mbps. I don't know if it was the network at the time or my device causing the failure for data throughput. It was the exact same result on every site I connected to.  I'm on a normal Tmo Postpaid SIM.  Nothing unusual.  LG V60. Robert n41 SA   n41 NSA
