Moar pictures!

 

No but really can we get a few of the actual phone?

edited: cause pictures

Thanks! That red color was really a stupendous choice by Sprint it pops in the pictures. Is it just as good in person?

Yes.

When it comes to phones with "different" colors, I am not sure if they look good because of the color, or if they look good just because they are different.

Nice, but question, Is that the one for the U.S. (red colored Sprint version) or the the overseas version that the media is putting out left and right in reviews today?

EDIT :

Sorry, I read that wrong. It looks like most reviews (that I have seen) are the Korean version.

I had planned order this on pre-order but reading some of the reviews the last couple days they all seem to talk about sluggish performance. I'm a little reluctant now and might just wait for the M9 so that I can compare both reviews.

Two of the two reviews I've read have mentioned sluggish performance due to CPU throttling (usually a heat problem.)  Looks like the rumors for the SD810 regarding heat issues were true.

 

EDIT: The M9 is what I'm eyeing.  We'll see if it's software related or an actual chipset issue with the M9 reviews.

I'm interested to see how the SD810 progresses from the Flex2 into the G4.  One would think software optimizations from Qualcomm and the manufacturesr should improve efficiency.  We shall see.

When doing a fresh sync of all my stuff on initial setup the device got warm, but no warmer than any of my other devices. There was definitely random sluggishness. I couldn't really get it to be sluggish on demand. 98% of the time it was snappy as heck.

nice! thats the thing with benchmarks vs real world usage, you aren't going to be running benchmarks all the time so if there are issues with overheating and throttling during benchmarks that doesn't mean there will be issues with your general day to day usage.

 

does it have 3gig RAM on it? or is it just 2?

 

thanks!

I would not take my limited amount of time with the phone as "proof" that it doesn't overheat. I used it for a total of about 4 hours.

The reviews that suggested sluggishness seemed to think it was because they got a Korean version that was filled with levels of bloatware not normal this side of the Pacific. Also there was no cellular connectivity and all testing was done wifi.

I bet the Korean version had 3GB of RAM.

    • Ah, I see.  Thanks for those details! It is great to see some posts on this subject.
    • I was reading the FCC filing for the Pixel 6 yesterday and saw that it included n258 - I was wondering what that was. That will be my next phone so nice to know it will support this new spectrum. 
    • The decommissioning of Sprint sites has started, the optimistic worrying starts about which sites they will keep and convert. Only 2 out of the 3 B41 sectors are on Cellmapper, and 0 B25/26 sectors. I think another site near me also got turned off/decom'd, but I haven't checked it yet. I guess its time to start paying more attention to Sprint sites... Link to street view of the site via Google Maps ,  Link to the site in Cellmapper .

    • Haven't gone anywhere yet, so I can't speak to benefits.  My issue was that I was out on Monday morning and it appears that T-Mobile has turned off several Sprint towers near me.  I was sitting in a parking lot near Landmark Mall on -118 dBm Band 25 because two of the sites I used to connect to there were apparently not running, so data would barely move.  This is in addition to my home site which has been off for several weeks, but that wasn't an issue because I don't use wireless data at home.  But if they're starting to turn off Sprint sites and leave holes, then there's really no alternative. So far, I've only seen T-Mobile, but that makes sense since I've only been home and my home site is gone on Sprint, so the site I had been connecting to was a lot weaker.  I'll have to see when I'm out and about, possibly this weekend. When ROAMAHOME came out, I had that removed and blocked from my account since T-Mobile's network is so lousy, so my lines were not automatically pushed to MULTOCN.  I had to have the block removed and then MULTOCN manually added.  That's probably not typical. - Trip
    • Are you seeing a benefit from MOCN?  Is it true that MOCN is highly biased to using T-Mobile towers?  Should everyone with a non-5G phone ask for MOCN? I had the impression it was supposed to be automatic now, perhaps even without being entered explicitly.  Is this not the case?  I realize that it may take some time to draw conclusions so if you do not know yet that is fine. Thanks!
