Equivalent of an LG G3

Recommended Posts

Hi There,

 

I was on the phone with Exec Care today about coverage issues in our area. After talking a bit, it came down to: "The network situation is not going to change for at least the next year or two in that area so we can do one of a few things"

 

1. Swap out phone at no cost to me for an equivalent device (In case of a radio defect).

 

2. Get an airave at no charge to me (Won't help my situation in the area).

 

3. Turn in all my equipment, Sprint pays my last bill, and will help me migrate to a new carrier.

 

I'm going to go with option 1 to start. What is a good "Equivalent" phone that I can get. I want something that will do the CCA bands, etc. Ideas? I'm heading to Sprint now to check out some devices. Then I have to call him back with my decision.

Took the dive for the nexus 6. Gives me the ability to test out other networks too.

if your coverage sucks when you get the nexus 6 then its definately the network as the N6 is a very good rf performer

agreed.  Could just be one tower causing your issue as well.  Wonder if the issue is only experienced in one place, and not everywhere else.  The Nexus 6 is not bad though.  Be careful if you play with LTE settings in the debug menu.  You may have to reflash.  Not all of us have had the problem, but Im not the only one with an issue.

    • C-band is further from becoming a reality than CBRS is right now considering there still hasn't been a decision made about if satellite operators should be able to sell it or if it should be auctioned off. And even then, it'll probably cost an arm and a leg to acquire. CBRS is shared spectrum that will likely be split up into a ton of chunks which doesn't exactly make it pristine mid-band spectrum. Sprint's advantage is that 2.5GHz not only has better propagation characteristics, but that the whole 120MHz+ is available to them virtually nationwide. The main advantage of CBRS is that it will likely be the first "global" 5G band and will be useful for roaming purposes. For that reason, I could see Sprint along with every other carrier and cable co trying to get some of it.
    • Noticeably speed improvements at the edge of B25.  Seeing double digits and not needing to drop to B26.
    • The more sub 6GHz spectrum the other carriers pick up, the less advantage Sprint has. That advantage holds a bit tighter though for anything above 2.5GHz for realistic urban full on coverage.   However, it's a long ways to get there.  CBRS is 150MHz right now, that will get split up once it goes up for auction. And it's a full 1GHz spread from 2.5GHz. Then C-Band that is being looked into like 6GHz, you are looking at similar limitations that are on existing 5GHz.  Unlicensed, low power output of 1w or 250mW. With current considerations there will be at least 850MHz for 1w output, but that is still just 1w.
