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.

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.

    • Thanks for the analysis on those sites! The Juanita-Woodinville Sprint tower at 47.74330, -122.19131 was mostly a surprise because:  The T-Mobile tower at 47.74440, -122.18346 is only 2000ft away and the T-Mobile tower at 47.74641, -122.20140 is only 2700ft away. The fact it NEVER showed the 312-250 PLMN. This is despite me trying hard to find out if it or the Sprint tower at 47.747532, -122.18941 were going to be keep sites.  If this were to fill that geographic dead zone, I would imagine something located closer to Oskam's Corner would be more suitable. I guess it is a case of a bird in the hand is worth more than two in the bush.  As for T-Mobile's roll-out of B41/N41, I have to say I am impressed with the speed of deployment. Driving north on I-405 from the start at I-5, I locked my phone to B-41. I did not lose my T-Mobile B41 connection until I reached Kirkland. Even then, there was only a small gap and I likely would have been able to reach north of the 124th in Kirkland without issue. It seems like they are upgrading a number of sites in suburban Snohomish county near the King/SnoCo border.
    • Looks like they're continuing their streak of buying up T-Mobile MVNOs. I wonder how they plan on unifying all of them under one brand down the line, if they plan on doing that at all.
    • Block the DNS lookups (return NX or something like 127.0.0.1) for epdg.epc.mnc260mcc310.pub.3gppnetwork.org and epdg.epc.mnc120.mcc310.pub.3gppnetwork.org and epdg.epc.mnc530.mcc312.pub.3gppnetwork.org And/or block UDP outbound to 208.54.0.0/16 port 4500. You could probably just block all outbound to that subnet, but if you want to be sure it just blocks wifi calling, also restrict to that UDP port. The latter is probably preferred, but the DNS block should work if you don't have the ability to set outbound firewall rules on your router. Regarding the handoffs, that has always worked reliably for me. But you might have to make sure that "always on mobile data" is enabled under developer options.
    • Yes, I've seen that scam shield rarely works for me as well. I'm on TNX so I don't have call screener app anymore just the reported "superior" scam shield, but it doesn't seem to work very well. I get scam texts and calls quite a bit.
