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.

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.

    • 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!
