HTC Desire 816 w/ Spark


Recommended Posts

We are looking for a Boost or Virgin release. May or may not be released on Sprint as an entry level model. I'm going to say not though.

That would be unfortunate if it were only virgin/boost, sprint could use more good entry level models, and even with easy pay this should be a good savings over a premium phone.

This is more of a mid level device but still though, probably virgin and boost.  I do think that something like this on sprint, priced competitively, would be a great seller.

We saw the FCC OET filing yesterday and had a staff discussion about it. We probably will not cover this handset unless Josh wants to do the write up.

Why isn't it less? :P

Haha. I just looked it up. It has a 5.5" screen?! But they say it has low resolution. I bet it looks pretty bad. I bought a cheap ($69) Android tablet at Wal-Mart once and the screen was terrible quality.

I have a 720p display on my BB z30 and the first thing everyone says when they see it is how good the screen is. And then they find out it is only 720 and not 1080. :lol:

    • It’s a neat and seemingly valid / effective strategy that, at least from my understanding, is only really used by VZW
    • Those are usually left over from the initial AWS deployment, so all run B13/B66 with support for BC0/BC1 (although that’s been shut off on most sites). No NR. Sites with the later Ericsson radios got an OTA update and broadcast B2. On those sites, a B5 OTA update was also available (and tested), but ultimately rolled back. Putting up all that power/spectrum severely degraded the B13 output.  The site atop Crystal Mountain is another story and uses the same setup as the site on the ridge near Neilton. These antennas were selected for their vertical beamwidth. Most modern directional antennas have small vertical beamwidths and would require extreme downtilt to cover the road next to a steep ridge. Thus, they would have a severely limited coverage footprint beyond the road. Omnis can be a better choice in these instances, especially when there’s LoS to the coverage objective (since they’ll generally have lower gain figures). Omnis also don’t run in to the horizontal sector edge problem, which can be difficult to optimize for with directional antennas that have complex or irregular 3D gain profiles. That’s why on a lot of sites on mountains, you’ll see wider antennas used. For example, the Verizon site on Joyce Ridge has three sectors with 80-degree HBW antennas. 
    • Do you know what RAN is behind those Omni's? LTE (bands?) are they pushing any NR through them? Very curious   edit: I guess I could check cellmapper etc but you might know more nuance!
    • N41 here has been expanded from 140Mhz to 180Mhz.  Speeds seem the same so they just need to work on backhaul
    • I noticed today that T-mobile has shut of B41 LTE in the Louisville area and widened the 2nd n41 carrier to 80MHz. That just leaves them with 5x5 B12, 10x10 B2, and two 10x10 B66 carriers on LTE, everything else is in NR (besides their 2G network). They have 20x20 n71, 20x20 n25, 5x5 n25, and 180MHz n41.
