Does LG have the same issue as Samsung in regards to LTE signal strength not showing the appropriate signal bars? Even in this stock image, it looks like LTE is only showing 1 bar. doh.gif

You only see one bar?  I see full bars.

The image is pretty low resolution, so I guess it could be debated. There appears to be more white near the end of the signal icon though. Enhance->zoom->sharpen. Also, if it was showing full signal bars you'd expect the signal icon to match the white/brightness of the battery icon spot on.

The other bars would be dark grey if  there was only one bar. And no, LG does not have an issue showing "bars." The representation is the same as it is on any other Sprint device. Roughly <-115 0 bars, -110 1 bar, -100 for 2, -95 for 3, -90 for 4, >-85 full bars.

I still see full bars with some mysterious white spot at the end that appears to be slightly brighter than the rest.

Only 1GB RAM (Apple would be proud though :) ?  720P?  Yikes.

 

We proudly present to you the Samsung Galaxy Note 1.5!

 

It's a budget phone for those that don't need the capabilities of the flagships and don't have the means / want to pay for a flagship.

But the size is of a phablet and includes a pen.  It is really an odd device.

 

I could understand a ~ 5" phone with middle of the road specs with no pen.

 

Plus the T-Mobile version has 2GB of RAM.

Age old statement of you get what you paid for applies here.

    • My s22 is at 2.370001.  When I try to manually update it,  It just sits there for a minute apparently doing nothing.  Then I get the following message:  We can not do it right now. Please try again after 24 hours. It is a little risky to even think about forcing an update that has not downloaded on its own.  You could be the first person to see a screw-up in the new software configuration.
    • I found an interesting line.  Under Software Information, there's a carrier configuration version and it errors out updating.  Mine is 2.380001.  I wonder how often that updates.
    • Yeah totes saw that article and I was like! Well damn hahaha there won't be expansion of band 41 then in areas of the Upper Manhattan/Bronx and Westchester then if that is the case otherwise we would have seen it. 
    • Well, I saw a good deal on a factory unlocked A32 5G on eBay and was able to convince the seller to show me the software info screen--and it was May.  So I jumped on it. Stuck one of my Tello SIMs in it, and while my Moto One 5G Ace would connect to n71 SA, this phone refuses to do so.  And with only 0 for the TA value, it's less useful for LTE than my older devices.  Oh, and the *#2263# menu doesn't work properly for NR.  So definitely glad I'm able to disable updates. - Trip
    • NextWave re-emerges with 2.5 GHz private network service  https://www.fiercewireless.com/private-wireless/nextwave-re-emerges-25-ghz-private-network-service https://www.nextwave5g.com/nextwave-news The only way for T-Mobile to get up to 190MHz now is to either buy out NextWave in it's entirety or wait until NextWave's lease is up and attempt to "outbid" them for the right to lease the spectrum from the Archdiocese. I'm really curious what NextWave wants for the spectrum that neither Sprint nor T-Mobile were willing to pay them to get off of it. Also what caused them to decide to finally put it into use? Did T-Mobile threaten a lawsuit? Luckily T-Mobile has 60MHz of C-band + DoD and a ton of PCS to make up for it.
