 So I dumped the s8 for the note 8 a week ago and it's hands down a better phone.  Rf performance is better just by the fact im connecting to band 41 at work and I would only connect in ccusing area's for a brief moment.  No freezing up no restarting randomly either.  Just my input.  If s8 working great for you, well that's just fantastic.

Hopefully S9 will be better.  My S8+ RF performance is similar to my S5 I use time to time. Lol

The rf is much better in the beta right now than the standard s8

The beta puts it on par with the note 5. I had the note 5 for 20 months so I know.

If it's like it was for the GS7 Edge last year, the international unlocked models will get Oreo in January & the US carriers will release in Feb.

It's actually pretty interesting I'm able to use my S8 Plus on Boost Mobile. I wonder if that will affect the software updates. Anyone can tell me please?

Do you know if this would activate upload CA like the beta did?

I haven't seen any indication of it being active on the network. 10mhz soon to be 15mhz b25 over here.

    • Here's my multi-point theory on why Sprint isn't roaming on VZW for LTE: Fewer Sprint phones have B13 than B12, and at the point that you're roaming on another carrier you want that low-band signal, most of which is still B13 on VZW. VZW charges more for data roaming than AT&T does, and might not even let Sprint do LTE roaming. This is bolstered by the fact that e.g. FreedomPop uses AT&T rather than Verizon as the underlying network for its stuff...they wouldn't use it if it was expensive. Also, add the PH-1 to the list of unlocked/BYOD phones that likely have the same firmware as the Sprint version, and thus get WiFi calling (though the PH-1 doesn't have Calling Plus; fingers crossed that I get VoLTE). I've been in a few RF dead zones (yay hotels!) lately but have seen the phone drop down to native eHRPD rather than swap to roaming on e.g. T-Mo band 12, so my guess is that I won't see aggressive roaming to LTE until the VoLTE soft launch, and maybe not even then.
    • I'll be heading to the UK in a few months and am trying to figure out whether it's worth it to switch off of Open World (this'll be my first time out of the country, so it's not like I'm using CA/MX data anyway) and grabbing a week pass for while I'm there. Specifically, does anyone know which network Sprint roams on in the UK, and whether it's LTE roaming? If the roaming situation is less than ideal, I figure I'll keep Open World and swing by an EE or Three store to pick up a local SIM, using my 3-cent-per-MB Open World data to get there. But if I can get solid coverage on LTE, I'll gladly do the week pass thing to save the hassle of finding a SIM.
    • Pretty sure they can slowly repurpose LTE portion of M-MIMO to 5G nr so that shouldn't be a problem in the very long run. Just like Clear equipment, and those have served their purpose quite well over the last 6 years.
    • It is disappointing that Sprint does not have a not Massive MIMO 5G option.  I assume the price would be significantly less for less robust solution that would allow for both 4G and 5NR.  This would allow more places to have 5NR sooner.
    • I say that because I had a iPad pro 9.7 on Sprint that only liked 480p even in good areas but when I switched to Tmobile or At&t I would use 1080p.
