Would love to hear some feedback on this device. I'm strongly considering picking this thing up!
Some basic interesting facts about the One plus 7 pro 5G..
Snapdragon 855 CPU
In-screen fingerprint sensor
All screen design with pop up camera
No wireless charging
No official IP rating (supposedly can handle being underwater or being wet without issues for short periods)

I was taking a look at the HTC 5G Hub that's supposed to be launching on Sprint sometime this month. It looks like it could technically be Sprint's first foray into the WISP space. On HTC's site they mention it as a sort of replacement for your WiFi router with the ability to connect up to 20 devices to it. I wonder what data caps will be on this when it launches and what they plan on charging people for using it?
It seems to be a lot of things smashed into one device. It's combining a wireless router, a streaming box, and a cloud gaming device all into one. It also has support for pretty much every U.S. LTE band.
Sprint announced at MWC trade show in Barcelona that 5G will go live with 4 cities starting in May (Chicago, Atlanta, Dallas and Kansas City )
Sprint announced the MVNO Google Fi will use its network for 5G in a press release (that is, once there are actually 5G capable phones compatible with Google Fi someday):
This is the first I've heard about Fi and 5G so far. Google has pretty much kept mum on the topic, so I'm somewhat encouraged.
I am sure that they can cover the 70% of American using their low frequency spectrum no problem. The only problem would be the relatively low customer count. They will have to partner with somebody to spread out the deployment costs.
Look in some places T-Mobile had a denser network and in others Sprint had a denser network and in others neither did. It's the nature of the beast. Let's hope that they do an masterful blending of the two networks and then buildout the places where neither was strong.
