Still so surprised at how quickly each carrier has been with this update. Perhaps project treble is finally working as intended.

Everything seems to be pretty functional for me. I don't see, or haven't run into, many bugs with my normal routine. I tried the gestures, but fell back to the Nova Launcher and the older full screen navigation. Everything is very snappy, camera works well and fast. 

Man, Android 10 really is a nothing-burger on the user end, short of the gestures. Very glad I didn't suffer through the betas for this. 

Yep, after what happened on the s8 beta a few years ago, I'm done beta testing.  I am more than willing to wait as long was it takes.

The beta was surprisingly stable, I had a few issues with apps but otherwise it was pretty solid. Would definitely try the android 11 beta on my S11+ next year.

I can echo that sentiment. From the first release, it was pretty stable. Every bug that I encountered, I reported, and it was fixed in the next update. Samsung is pretty proactive about fixing problems as long as they know about them. I'm still on the last version of the beta and the only thing I miss is Google Pay. Everything else works pretty much perfectly.

Why would you use Google pay over Samsung pay? It's so much better.

I've switched over to Google Pay, because I really only use it on my watch(es). It's extremely rare for me to run into a terminal now that doesn't take the NFC payments so my watch GP works best. My bank will remove my digital numbers from Samsung Pay if it's inactive for a month, so just haven't put my cards back in.

It is amazing how within 6 months everyone finally turned on their NFC payments on the verifone terminals. I think I only hit one store this Christmas shopping period that didn't take it. Prior to that, Samsung Pay was superior, but now it doesn't really matter.

In the southeast its essential. Walmart/Samsclub and Publix holds a duopoly on the grocery market and both of them dont have NFC. Meanwhile the Dollar General and Family Dollar both have it. WTH?

Totally off topic...but Dollar General is just now opening stores in the Pacific Northwest.  People up here don't understand what they're for.  They're all pissed because it's not an "Everything is $1 Store."  They feel like they're being bait and switched.  They think it's an overpriced Dollar Tree.  LOL

I honestly prefer the design of the app, I use it when shopping on my phone since a lot of apps have integrated Google Pay as a payment method, and it does a good job of storing tickets and pulling ticket confirmation information from my emails and storing them to find later. Also almost every store I go into has NFC set up now. The three big exceptions were CVS, Target, and Walmart. Both CVS and Target activated NFC within the past year and I shop at Walmart once or twice a year (literally) so I always have the Walmart app on my phone set up with Walmart Pay just in case.

The design is very simple and innovative. All of my loyalty cards are on it but back to the thread.

Did Sprint enable TM9 on B25? Is that for Massive MIMO on b25 or something?

Personally I refuse to use NFC payment apps because I personally don't trust the security.

That being said, a couple of weeks ago, I was kind of forced into opening the Google Pay app to download a copy of the concert tickets I had purchased from the Live Nation app.

When my wife and I got to the concert, I was very glad that I had been able to download copies of the tickets in the Google Pay app, since the Live Nation app wasn't showing all of the tickets

At least I find the Tickets Saving feature of Google Pay handy.

And before anyone says the obvious...I of course I know that sometime soon I will eventually have no choice but to get on board with Mobile Phone payment when that becomes the only method of payment.

But until then I personally prefer to use physical credit card and cash

Similarly, I still write checks to pay my credit card bills, and plan on continuing to do so until I am forced into online bill payments.

Has anyone experienced significantly improved service? I swear since updating to 10 a month ago that my service improved substantially. A few spots near me used to have subpar service and within the last few days I can actually maintain an LTE signal it's shocking to say the least.

You might be getting the benefits of improved aggregation.  Band 25 aggregated with band 41.  Band 25 gives improved upload, band 41 gives great download.   Or maybe a new site has been added near you.

    • Yeah VoLTE took forever on Airave 4s, but it's definitely working now. Supposedly it was enabled months ago, but not necessarily for existing devices (only new ones). I had to factory reset mine to get it back in the queue, but after 2.5 weeks it got it. My Magic Box with wired backhaul, on the other hand, got it only 3 days after a factory reset. It seems that a lot of femtos setup before VoLTE launched never got put back in the queue (particularly femtos using WiFi or Ethernet backhaul), hence the necessary factory reset. I'm not sure if an Airave 4 would offer substantial coverage improvement over the Pebble, other than having CDMA as a fallback. If you need to cover a larger area, you can use both actually. They should handoff to one another with VoLTE, just keep them sufficiently far apart to minimize interference. And you'll probably have to tell Sprint it's for use at a different address, but they won't actually check where it's deployed. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
    • Do it quickly.  My impression is T-Mobile really wants to move people to their network ASAP, even if it causes lots of pain. August 1 is rumored to be the end of Sprint retail.
    • I'm trying to switch over to the Airave 4 now that the've enable VoLTE on them. That should fix this problem. The only reason I got the Pebble over the AR4 is because VoLTE wasn't enable on it yet.
    • My router typically only gets rebooted for firmware updates or major functionality changes that I have implemented. Otherwise stays up for years.  Last time it was down is when Hurricane Ike remnants hit Ohio in 2008 and caused week long power outages, which killed local internet in a few days (I have two ISPs, UPSes, generator).  ISP's battery backups and generator use had improved considerably since that time. Making changes appears to be the greatest reason for router instability. So put internet connections on a UPS,  reboot after major changes, and otherwise enjoy.
    • It’s been a while since I’ve posted here since I’ve switched away from Sprint but I happened upon your thread while researching an upgrade to my Rural Internet Setup and I thought you might be able to help some   I currently have a MoFi 4500 with two 35ft long LMR400 cables going from inside my cabin up to two panel antennas on the roof https://imgur.com/a/NpOjzwM   It’s working ok but I think I’m missing out on a lot of bandwidth since bands 14 and 66 have been added to the area and I could get better signal with a modem mounted behind the antennas (eliminating a lot of line loss).   I’ve been looking at mounting a Telit LM960 or Quectel EM20 in a panel behind the antennas outside along with a Golden Orb compatible router powered by POE and adding another pair of antennas for 4x4 MIMO.   Since you’ve tested both the EM20 and the LM960, which do you prefer? It appears the LM960 actually has better CA combinations for AT&T’s network even though it’s theoretically not as high level of LTE technology category as the Quectel.   It appears to me most of the higher order carrier aggregation on the Quectel is with CBRS or LTE unlicensed which I don’t think I’ll ever see in this rural Edge of Cell area.   Also does it appear to you that having these installed outside would be a reliability issue? It gets really hot here in the summers with plenty of severe weather and it can be cold in Winters. The LM960 at least appears to have a pretty broad operating temperature range.   Any advice is appreciated, thanks!     Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
