Any word of an S5 premium model coming soon? Something like the S4 Active.

Nope. I thought Samsung said Sprint would get an S5 Active, but that could be late summer.

I wish Samsung\Sprint would give us the 32 gig model of the S5. I don't think I can downgrade back to 16 gig internal memory and this S3 can't last forever.

Having a 128GB MicroSD to complement my 16GB S4 has been working out quite well for me. I can move all my media and most apps to the card, among other things. The S3 should also support MicroSDXC. I wouldn't say no to more internal memory though. Having a total of 192GB to work with (64GB internal + card) would be pretty nice.

 

I've been happy to see that expandable storage has been making a comeback this year. Last year, it seemed only Samsung and Sony still offered the option on their flagships. One thing still missing though is UHS-I support, but Class 10 speeds have so far proven good enough.

Ever since the days of my OG Evo 4G and its 1 gig of internal memory, I have promised myself never to skimp on internal memory again. Also, having an SD card fail is never a good feeling

Oh gosh, that phone was horrible memory wise!  Even with moving apps to SD!

1) Any rumors of a triband Mega or Note on the way? I used to make fun of them, but that real estate would be handy for RDP.

 

2) Could a mod rename the thread to say, "Any new Samsung handset rumors?"

i saw rumors today of the new Note 4 but the talk was about screen size and display resolution. if its introduced this fall as usual i would surprised if the sprint model did not have Triband. lack of B41 would be a serious oversight.

Well I suppose they people talking about the S5 active coming to sprint now are talking in a the S5 Sport page... but I really want to know if samsung will release a galaxy F or prime or whatever it ends up being called, on all the carriers here and the largest question is: Will it be worth the wait? 

 

We have a 'premium' metal phone in the HTC One (m8)... although it might not have the software goodies of samsung or LG's slim bezels; it is simple, elegant and quality.  

 

The purposed samsung premium phone would have the newer processor, possible 2K screen, possibly bigger screen, and a metal body... but everything else the same (except maybe not being able to remove the battery).  Would it really be worth waiting for it? ... or should I get the LG G3 while there is a $150 reward?

    • T-Mobile wins more 5G spectrum over AT&T's objections So now it's official?
    • Just got back from Puerto Rico. I spent a lot of time going around the San Juan metro area, predominantly in Viejo San Juan, Santurce, Isla Verde, and a short stop in University Gardens.  T-Mobile's network still performs as well today as it did when I last tested and in my opinion is the best on the island. n41 is still at 100MHz in most areas though I did record a few areas with only 80MHz. Yesterday the FCC announced that they're finally granting T-Mobile their Auction 108 winnings so we'll probably finally see that increase. They also have 15MHz of n25 and 15MHz of n25 and 15MHz n71. The fastest speed I recorded while there was 922 down and 120 up, presumably aggregating n41+n25 and potentially n71 as well but I wasn't able to confirm that. A couple of things I noticed about their network are that their is a ton of split-sector n25 deployed in San Juan, much like in the U.S. I even noticed some n41 sites that had 4 or more sectors. The weirdest being the site on top of SJU Airport where they have 6 n41 sectors each broadcasting 80MHz of n41. AT&T SIMs roam on LIberty's network but they still treat it as the home network. In my opinion they're the second best network in Puerto Rico. Liberty is still using the AT&T MCC-MNC code and is pretty much coasting on AT&T's network upgrades. They have 10MHz n5 virtually everywhere but I never saw my phone connect to any other 5G bands. Their saving grace was just how much spectrum they have to aggregate across midband and lowband. I'd see combos like 10MHz n5 + 20MHz B2 + 10MHz B66 + 10MHz Band 30 + 5MHz Band 2 and get upwards of 200Mbps. Coverage was slightly worse than T-Mobile in my experience, even indoors which is a surprise given T-Mobile usually struggles a bit indoors due to their macro density. Verizon is roaming on Claro in Puerto Rico just as they have been for years. No idea if there is 5G roaming because I was connected to LTE the entire time. Toggling 5G didn't do anything and both pings and speeds weren't great. Speeds were in the 20-40Mbps range consistently and pings over 200ms. For comparison T-Mobile's pings are in the teens and Liberty pings are in the 40's even when roaming using an AT&T SIM. Claro's network is ok in my experience with nothing really notable about it.  — — — — — Here are some pics of sites that I took:
    • WTB instructed to process all 2.5GHz licenses across the USA. They are only giving up some spectrum in certain markets of Hawaii.
    • Is this just for licenses in Hawaii?
    • Yeah, it basically directs the bureau to proceed with granting the applications in the normal course.  It's no longer being held by the AT&T objection. - Trip
