Hi everyone, I am looking to see what anyone's opinion is on the better LTE performers NOW are...? I would like to find a better performing LTE phone. I have the EVO now, I did do the update just released that you have to download and it improved in SLIGHTLY and yes the 4G signal bars do reflect the actual signal now instead of the old version. I do still have my EVO 3D but thats a backup (you never know if you need a standby).   I did try out the Lg Optimus G around June last year (2013) and I liked it, and If I recall reading around on here the RF performance was one of the better ones.  Recently I did check to see if Sprint offered it and come to find out (at least on Sprint.com its no longer there)  and checked with a couple of the stores around me and discontinued... Seems odd to me.  Its not like its an old model, I still consider it semi new (ish) heck most of the store still carry the Motorola Photon Q!  Is there something I missed?  Did that phone have a lot of issues or was it because the LG G2 took its place and was just overly popular?  

 

Anyways other then LG Optimus G, what other ones are good?  I only stick with Android  :)

Well I love my nexus 5, so far it seems to be the best rf performer. Plus its just all around a great phone. My sole complaint would be that the spark update hasn't arrived yet :P.

Anyone know why the Lg Optimus G is not still selling at Sprint.com or at most stores?  No one has answered that yet lol!

 

If you still want a mint condition LG Optimus G, I have one that I used for a week for RF testing last summer.  You can have it for a song.

 

And just FYI everyone, we do not want to host numerous phone for sale posts.  But as staff invests a lot of time and money for S4GRU research purposes, we get a little leeway in that regard.

    • Went to Rolling Loud NYC at Citi Field this weekend. Over 60,000 people in attendance. Verizon is a sponsor of the festival this year so naturally they had a ton of COWs set up at the festival. I counted at least 4. As a result, they were virtually the only carrier consistently able to provide a data connection. I didn't see any Verizon 5G, only LTE. T-Mobile on the other hand was a very interesting experience. I was seeing an eNB 331804 which I'm 99% sure is a COW. They also seems to be doing some sort of traffic management because I noticed that if I left my phone idle in my pocket, it would drop down to No Service/SOS or sometimes it would sit on EDGE. But the second that I needed to send a text, make a call, or even use Twitter my phone would switch over to LTE or 5G to complete the task. In an active data session, my phone would constantly flip between Band 2, Band 66, and Band 41. Sometimes, I'd catch myself on the COW and other times I'd get pushed over to eNB 875868, the relatively new Sprint conversion nearby. The network moved at a snails pace though. Where Verizon took about 15 seconds to load Twitter or send a pic, T-Mobile could take up to a minute to complete the same task. Here's some photos of the COWs I spotted. I think that the first two are Verizon and the one in the distance in the third pic is T-Mobile's single COW, not nearly enough for an event that size.

    • You need to have Wi-Fi Calling enabled and also have made at least one phone call over Wi-Fi Calling prior to using the inflight Wi-Fi.
