I heard it's supposed to have the worst specifications for the US model

plastic screen ≠ purchase

The flat portion of the screen could possibly be protected with a glass screen protector.

After breaking two screens on my Nexus 6P, I think I'm willing to try a nearly indestructible plastic screen in my next device. I'm thinking about getting this thing.

I handled one today and it's pretty slick. I need to activate it on our demo account and get it on the display wall tomorrow so I will try and get some speed test. Unfortunately because of the mini macro site on our roof we get amazing B25 and don't connect to B41 in store.

I only got to fondle it for like 3 mins and then had to get back to the line of customers but it's sitting on my desk waiting for me to activate it tomorrow. I'll try and get some better impressions then.

With a Live case and glass screen protector, i've never broken my N6P and I drop the thing constantly.  I can't believe how clumsy I've become with this device.

Deal broken.

I've dropped it twice face down and broke the screen twice.  Both times were on asphalt with little pointy rocks on the surface.

That was his first 6P.  Waited quite a while before getting the screen replaced.  I had no idea he dropped the slippery thing again.  I have the 6P as well and it's VERY slippery.  I've replaced a screen myself.

Yes it is a slippery device, i dropped mine once or twice and got very lucky both times.  It's been in a Live case since then

Just did a b41 comparison with the S8+ in the Sprint store and wow they optimized this thing to the core. It's b41 was -10 to -15dbm better at all times. I was shocked.

Go check out it out. Moto is a band 41 monster.

Perhaps could one of the S4GRU article writers put together an article with the band specifications like in the past?

Seems like it's been forever since that happened. I wouldn't mind a raffle for a b41 beast like this

That is highly unlikely to be an apples to apples comparison -- because the Moto would be receiving 10-30 times stronger signal.  Almost assuredly, at least one other factor contributed to the differences.  Also, your negative signs and dBm units of measurement are incorrect for this comparison.

There has to be other factors that are coming into play here. Obviously the signal cannot be 30x better (for every 3dB your doubling signal) But considering Sprint has been using this phone as a reference for showing off GB LTE, I have no doubt it will be a radio performance monster, and you somewhat confirmed it.

 

Unfortunately, the S8 has been a less than stellar radio performer. Hopefully with that sweet Calling Plus update coming we will get some sort of radio improvements.

    • Yeah we get higher throughput w T-mo as well, on bands 4+2 4x4 = 60Mb p/s vs 4+2+5 2x2 =55Mb p/s. I even found and authenticated band 4/66 on AT&T, MFBI too. I have had so much trouble just connecting to it, let alone getting 15Mb p/s down. rsrp is like -120, but SNR is -14. EARFCN's 66486 @10MHz and 66661 @5MHz checking in with 4x4 MIMO. Aggregated. This is a dream.
    • 4x4 MIMO is fun! / How we learn to cope w (signal)Loss. Tl;dr: Physically measuring each connection as you test to confirm is important. Double checking port number values and what command line values represent. This is one of the early things to add to the checkbox for us tinkerers as 4x4 becomes more accessible. While cleaning up in the lab, I thought of something and naturally stopped to do some more work in the lab. I figured I should clean up the wiring a little more in my test box, and make room for another board, hopefully the rb11g, failover and such. I inventoried a few jumpers and connectors and found I could be a little more efficient in my setup. I added in some sma>3'>N adapters, instead of a couple more adapters I had screwed in already that kept it shorter. I am going to use those any way when I permamount this thing and add better auxiliary antennas for 4x4 MIMO, than what I have attached now. I decided to double check my understanding of the documentation Telit provides for the LM960. Well after some reading, some at#commands as swapped 2 for 2, deciding what 0 and 1 ports on what side correlate to the first two and the last two of the 4x4 setup it, turned out I had my setup wired exactly backwards. Very inefficient, not good. I no longer have loss on my upload and is now 7x faster. I am surprised at how well my backups pulled down. I understand how useless a couple of commands were in describing what I needed. It is even more tough when using one band that is always 4x4, but I used that to my advantage as only mains Tx and Rx. I connected and tested each variation of antenna>port. Naturally my 5 footer was best, it just had to be on the mains. Wanted to document my misunderstanding so others didn't have to, especially before it goes on a roof or up a pole. I also am much happier with performance, glad my antenna is not defective and it was fun to figure it out. Gotta sweep up. Have a great night everyone.
    • I’ll ask the tread. I guess as band 26 is still being optimized could there be issues on the network? My data on the I phone xs max keeps timing out in the middle of loading stuff I’ll pull 80mbps and then next second it won’t work anymore and I have to toggle airplan mode for it to work again. I had this phone replace once already. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
