Does this support Gigabit LTE/4X CA on Sprint?

I would consider getting it but the meh LTE performance on the S8 devices is holding me back a little.

No. No.

Anyone else own this? Just picked up on ebay and liking so far. Great battery life.

As Flossy Carter says on his YouTube review, this is a Man's Phone! :)

That is the one I bought. 99% new.. Just a small little scratch on screen. Make sure you get a screen protector.. Very easy to scratch since it is plastic.

Best of all.. YMMV.. Samsung states in warranty through 2/19

My local (3rd party) Sprint store is a dump that must be some kind of drug front because they only have 2 phones on display, and have never carried the Active.

Best Buy is also showing out of stock.

You can still buy it from Samsung's website. Maybe Sprint retailers have decided to stop carrying it.

Yes I see it available on there, but it looks like you go through "Samsung Financing" which makes me think I wont be able to get the $10 loyalty credit

The phone just landed in November, so this is odd

    • While I've been loath to update my Samsung devices past the May 2022 update to keep the Band Selection tool, I note that it looks like Android 14 is going to add Timing Advance for NR to the API.  (Was looking today as I have another Verizon A42 5G now that I'm going to unlock for T-Mobile, and wanted to figure out if I should let it update or not.)  Since I can technically make band changes from *#73#, on the A42 5Gs, I can probably live without the Band Selection tool if a later Android version adds something useful like TA values. I assume SCP will be updated to support that once it becomes publicly available.  The real question is whether or not the phones will support it.  My S21FE and A42 5G devices do on LTE, but I know the S22 and the A32 5G do not support it even on LTE, providing just zero in that field. - Trip
    • The A23 5G appears to support all of the Dish NR bands except n26 which they don't even own yet, and n29 which as SDL can't be logged as far as I can tell.  https://www.phonescoop.com/phones/phone.php?p=6760  I mean, n71, n66, and n70 are there, and those are the ones I'm most concerned about. I know that's not trade press, but I've found Phone Scoop to tend to be missing bands rather than including bands that should be there. I don't really care if it's carrier locked; if I'm buying a device specifically for Dish, then I'm probably not switching it out in the immediate future. - Trip
    • I mapped out the various phone choices to Dish's NR bands.  Used trade press for many of the phones, which can be unreliable.  Just starting with N71, you are down to three phones: Moto G Stylus 5G 2022, Moto Edge+ (2022), Celero 5G+.  Add in the less frequent n66 and you are down to: Moto G Stylus 5G 2022, Moto Edge+ (2022).  The Moto G Stylus 5G 2022 then walks away with the rest of the bands.   A negative is even if you pay cash, the phone is carrier locked for a year.

    • After nearly a month T-Mobile seems to be finally expanding n25 beyond the initial 5 sites they were using. However, it seems to be quite the mess. The three sites near me are all using different size channels. I'm getting a 5Mhz channel that's only using the G Block, a 15Mhz channel that's using the C Block, and a 20Mhz channel that's using C+G, each from a different site all next to each other. Very confusing.
