Google Nexus 5X by LG User Thread (LG H790)


Recommended Posts

Well I just popped open my 5X to transplant the motherboard into a new housing and it turns out that LG didn't screw my midframe back into place when they were repairing the bootloop thing. 10 empty screw holes. :/

Battery life?  Exceptional coming from a Nexus 5. Doing the same usage for 2 hour SOT I went from 100 to 50sh in 1 hour and with 5x it's 100 to 80ish. Ended the day with about 3 hour SOT and ~40% batt

So now that I've been using this thing for a while I'll do a mini-review in an attempt to help anybody considering upgrading from a 5. First, battery life is CRAZY good compared to the 5. Maybe it's

Woo hoo!     AJ

I don't roam on At&t. I just have both services and switch out sim cards when I'm driving out to the farm. No native Sprint service on the highway and data roaming on Verizon doesn't work, which is why I switch SIM cards as needed.

 

But it is my understanding that Nexus/Pixel phones on Sprint can now roam on LTE.

FYI for those interested.. I was in Kentucky last week, and roamed on a couple of different ATT LTE bands with my 5X while I was there. I'll have to check my screen shots, and hopefully SCP logs to confirm, but I think it was bands 2 and 17. Edit: looks like 2 and 25.. didn't realize they had LTE on band 25.. also found Bluegrass Cellular band 12.

B25 is a superset of B2, the only difference I believe being B25 adds the PCS G block. I think SCP just identifies it based on earfcn or gci, so it's likely a bug. Unless ATT started advertising their B2 as B25.

Here are the SCP screenshots for the LTE roaming I found. 1680017e23949344197458d25daa4be4.jpg0bc814483351e8f452ac5c6834b9815d.jpg3b54d741569066aad33656da38b9e685.jpg

Hmm the B25 one must be stale data, since it's using the G block. Sprint has that nationwide.

My refurbished 5X stopped working last week (11/16/2017) after having it for about 13 mouths and the first 5X only lasted about 11 mouths and 2 weeks just before the one year warranty expired. So I now have the Pixel 2(HTC).

13 and 11 mouths?

    • The real question will be the effect on the upcoming 2.5 EBS auction.  T-Mobile might be able to get very good prices with almost no implementation costs for much better service in small cities and rural areas.
    • What was the previous 600Mhz antenna?
    • Auction 107: Hit $80.9B.   Now going to enter the assignment phase where bidders can bid on specific spectrum blocks. Wonder how fast this will get online this year.  TMobile's head start with 2.5GHz is gonna get challenged.  I could see them taking the lead in wireless tests in 2021 but then the gap close in 2022.   Auction 108: Three blocks.  49.5, 50.5 and 16.5MHz. I wonder how heavy TMobile will buy here. It'll sorta clean up their holdings and I could see down the road if they don't bid they have to invest more time keeping interference out of the current existing white-space. Likely at least secure entire counties they already own a partial license in. Everything about 2.5 is such a mess.  
    • So very interesting find , at my home The 5G upper layer indicator was turned off on certain LTE bands, but still has NR connected. It was on a Band 30 5 mhz one tower, a Band 30 10mhz chunk on another, and my home tower the Band 2 5Mhz chunk now has no indicator on. I am wondering if they are maybe configuring the the tower for DSS NR band 2
    • Seems to be the norm in many markets. They're replacing nearly all existing antennas on sites here in New York too.
