Decided to open up a thread to discuss the Moto X 2015, as there have been a few leaks of the third generation phone. Do you guys think Sprint will carry it this year? Are you guys waiting for it? what features do you want to see in this new phone?
MediaTek recently announced Helio X20 SoC, which you might have heard of on various blogs as the "10-core SoC. Perhaps more notable than having 10 CPU cores, is it's "Tri-Cluster" design in what amounts to a 4-4-2 layout. The idea behind this to have essentially a "low, medium and high" performance modes.The GPU, while an upgrade over their previous model, shouldn't be anything special.
On the modem side, which I know holds a special special place for many here, is LTE Cat.6 with 2x20 CA support. Of particular interest is that it supports CDMA 2k and something called SRLTE, which I am not familiar with, but an internet search sugguests that it is Simulatneous 1XRTT and LTE.
As a reminder, this part is designed to compete against the Snapdragon 6XX, not the 8XX that we're used to seeing.
Went to a store today and found out that I am not allowed to do the trade-in offer and put the phone on my free Line On Us number. I would have to put the "financing" on a paying line or buy the phone outright -_-
This exactly. Same here in Nebraska. Sprint used to roam on USCC here and the speeds were very useable! Not like native Sprint but good enough.
Now when roaming, it wants to latch on AT&T and speeds are horrendous. Like throttled to .05 up and .05 down. SUCKS!
