Google Nexus 6 by Motorola (Was "Nexus X talk leaked?")

Recommended Posts

Was the Nexus 5 also a nano sim card? I currently have a phone that doesn't have a removable sim card (S3), and I'm looking to buy the Nexus 6 from the play store. I didn't even realize that this might be an issue, so I'm looking to get a jump on things and get a sim card ordered. What card should I ask for?

Are there any other phones that Sprint currently stocks that are nano sims (besides the iPhone 6/6+)? In other words, has this path already been paved by other devices or is this expected to be just as bumpy as the nexus 5?

I'm pretty sure the iPhone 5 and 5c are nano as well.

My Sharp Aquos Crystal uses a Nano SIM.

My Sharp AQUOS Crystal uses a Nano SIM and so does the iPhones. I don't think it will be too bad. And if you buy from Sprint, it will ship with it.

I have a question about purchasing Nexus 6 from Sprint. My memory is pretty foggy on this, but didn't individuals who bought their Nexus 5's from T-Mobile have trouble getting them activated on Sprint? Or, were they unable to activate them on Sprint at all? Some sort of MEID issues?

 

Since the Nexus 6 works on all 4 cell providers, if we want to sell it after a period of time, would the next owner have an issue if he or she were to try and activate it on a carrier other than Sprint?

 

I would hate to purchase from Google Play and then go through the hassle of trying to get a SIM card from Sprint. I'd rather just purchase from Sprint where the SIM is already installed.

I know this phone supports sprints new lte roaming but will it be enabled?  Like the nexus 5 was waiting for triband?

With the nexus 5 i believe if was only purchased from tmobile. If you swapped i don't think it is a problem because its in sprints system already.   Just buy it from sprint or Google play to be safe.

1st generation Moto X also uses a Nano.

I just got the Moto X (2013) nano sim shipped to me (UPC: 760492013512, Description: SIMCARD LTEGSM 4FF USIM REMOV). It should arrive in the next few business days. I hope that gets me all ready to go for the Nexus 6.

Thanks for your post.  I just ordered the nano sim as well.  Want to be all ready for when the Nexus 6 gets here!

How's the RF performance?

 

Sent from my Nexus 5

I honestly don't look at the numbers as we have seen some phones with bad numbers end up being good and vice versa.

I don't think I've ever seen a device with bad numbers be a good performer. But I've seen midrange EIRP numbers be good performers. Like the Sprint Note 2. And I've seen good numbers be bad or just fair performers.

 

But anything with sub 16 EIRP numbers, in my experience, has been bad. Like the Verizon Note 3. It's LTE RF performance was awful. Probably the worst Verizon LTE device ever. My boss threw his across the room and destroyed it because he got so frustrated with it.

Only half the puzzle though. Like for instance there are no band 29 numbers since it is receive only. I take the numbers as a grain of salt. Hopefully the real world tests will be good.

Standing ovation.  Robert took the words right out of my mouth, saved me from having to write the same post.

 

poor RF figures = poor RF performance

average RF figures = good, average, or poor RF performance

high RF figures = good, average, or poor RF performance

Any handset that performs poorly in the RF lab will not improve in the real world.

Do the released FCC docs show the lab RF performance? I'm getting the implication that the lab performance is poor?

    • Something else I forgot to mention, the V40 is enabled for calling plus on LTE and wifi, and it has been working very well so far. I usually keep it disabled for WiFi, since my WiFi is a bit weak in some parts of my house.
    • A little anecdotal note on radio performance. I am currently a location with known poor coverage. We have 3 new phones - iPhone XS, XS Max, and LG V40. The iPhones are having no trouble picking up a usable LTE signal inside, but the V40 only connects to 3G unless I go outside, and the data is barely usable. It is band 26 LTE (800MHz) based on Signal Check on the V40 when I go outside and pick up the LTE signal. Actually now that I think about it, the V40 is probably on 1xrtt inside, not 3G, because Signal Check is showing 800 for both CDMA and LTE.
    • I second the LG V30+. I've had mine for over a year now, and I'm very pleased with the RF performance. I too live in a somewhat rural area, and also travel quite a bit, and I haven't been disappointed at all. RF performance is high on my list of must-haves when shopping for a new phone. The V30+ also makes use of all the current network technologies offered by Sprint, as far as I know. I haven't been able to test out VoLTE yet (not live in my home area), but it's on the compatibility list. I haven't been shopping, but I have seen the V30+ offered at very good prices recently.

    • Is this in Cali? The T-Mo roaming is great news, but it would be nice to confirm that USCC roaming is still working on the Pixel devices.
