Oh HTC :(

Recommended Posts

After almost ten years of nothing but HTC cell phones, we had to go in another direction. Picked up a moto Z Force for the wife to replace her A9 and I got an essential phone to replace my HTC 10. Really wanted to stay with HTC but they have nothing to compel me to pay the amount of money that they want for their phones. It is almost as if they are no longer trying which is too bad.

My wife has the Moto Z2 Force.  She loves it.  WiFi was messed up and she had to replace it.  Returned it.  Second unit has been good.  Still waiting on the projector to arrive via FedEx ground.  Been travelling over the road from Minnesota, North Dakota and Montana.  Should be frozen solid by the time it gets to Washington State.

Yup. The wife likes her Moto so far. I just made sure she had a screen protector on day one!

Gotta say I'm happy with the Essential for the most part.  Did drop it last week and cracked the screen.  They were quick to replace it too. Htc just fell off after the M8. I did NOT like the 10.

The 10 was a pretty good phone although I missed my true dual speaker set up.

I switched away on my last upgrade. They just dont seem interested in making phones like I want. The s8+ is as close to my perfect phone as I think I've ever been.

I went from the 10 to the u11 and I'm happy I wish the u11+ was on sprint

I too moved away from HTC. I’ve had almost every model Sprint carried since the Audiovox 3100.. but Pixel 2 XL called my name. I had nothing but problems with my HTC10. I had a case open and still open since May of last year. No resolution. Once in a while they send out an email. “We are working hard to resolve your case” blah blah.. I moved away from Sprint too. New phone new carrier.

My wife and I have been using HTC phones since the EVO 4g. I had a short stint with the Nexus 5 between the HTC 7 and 8. When htc upgraded the 10 to Nougat we suddenly had horrible battery life. It got so bad that we ended up forking out the money for two pixel 2 phones.

The speakers on this phone are what should have been in the HTC 10.

    • Just caught another instance of 3rd 2500 carrier in Shentel territory.  Note the standard 310120. I also note the 414 PCI that is one of the 3 PCI's for the local site used for carrier one and two. Saw this at a stop light and got the screen shot but had to start moving while going for the "service screen". I think I saw 10 mhz, not 20.  I did not see any aggregation but I only got a quick glimpse of the screen before it rolled to carrier one and two being aggregated as usual.  The 3rd carrier was gone. I do still have a galaxy S-7.  I am not positive that it is capable of using 3Xca, but the service screen looks like it could show it. I did not get  a speed test on carrier 3 either.  I went back through the area again, and even hung around on a side street, but could not acquire carrier 3 at any time.  I was surprised to see this as this local site is not congested. Anytime I check the speed it runs over 30 down and sometimes 60 down.  I am not sure if it might be a magic box or not. I was told that Shentel is not supporting Magic boxes. The area has very good service even inside the big box Wal-mart and Lowes.   I would really be surprised to find a magic box or anything else like that in this neighborhood.   Location: Rouzerville, Pa.
    • It is essentially more time parked on 2.5 as a Sprint user then 2.3 as an ATT user, or 2.2 as a Verizon or T-mo user. I see bands 30, 66 just about everywhere these days. Those seem to be pretty primary as far as bandwidth goes, minimum 10 on band 30 up to 20 or 30 in band 66. This would indicate that somehow Sprint is not allowing service levels on band 41 to fail to band 41>25 nearly as often as other carriers are with similar frequencies i.e 30>2 or 66>2. That seems strange to me.
    • Because the other carriers don't use those as their primary bands nor have them deployed on every single site in the same way Sprint does for Band 41. Not to mention Band 30 and Band 66 still have farther reach than Band 41. Also Band 46 is deployed in very few places as a hotspot type of solution. When you're on Band 41, you're on Band 41 alone. When you are on Band 30 or Band 66, you tend to be carrier aggregated with another band that has better propagation characteristics.
    • Using this math, wouldn't bands 46, 30 and 66 also show a weak signal on other carriers? Since all carriers posses band 2 and below how does sensorly ignore this specifically with Sprint?
