Ugh that ridiculous assistant button that's placed way too low is still there. Always gets crushed in my car mount. They couldn't put that on the other side under the power button for symmetry? Yes I know it can be turned off (and it is) but that's not the point. Disappointing.

I got a huge mailer about the G8.  Nothing about it made me anxious to buy it.

I'm going to keep an eye on out for the V50, but I anticipate it will be too expensive.  We'll see what the G8 costs on Black Friday; I may or may not upgrade then.

(Is the rear power button gone for good?)

Given Samsung's quality control issues, it will be very important to see if LG does any better.  Typically takes about a month for any issues to show up. 

Design-wise there is no doubt that X55 modem devices slated for late 2019/2020 are better long term bets.  If the merger is called off, then the V50 becomes more viable since 600MHz 5NR won't matter as much.  Otherwise I want my local tower tribanded to reduce my merger transition uncertainty about my local service and reduce my risk..

Picked up one of these for my wife due to the large service credit to upgrade and the discount from best buy. So far so good. VoLTE was even available in the settings, just needed to be toggled.

    • Ah, I see.  Thanks for those details! It is great to see some posts on this subject.
    • I was reading the FCC filing for the Pixel 6 yesterday and saw that it included n258 - I was wondering what that was. That will be my next phone so nice to know it will support this new spectrum. 
    • The decommissioning of Sprint sites has started, the optimistic worrying starts about which sites they will keep and convert. Only 2 out of the 3 B41 sectors are on Cellmapper, and 0 B25/26 sectors. I think another site near me also got turned off/decom'd, but I haven't checked it yet. I guess its time to start paying more attention to Sprint sites... Link to street view of the site via Google Maps ,  Link to the site in Cellmapper .

    • Haven't gone anywhere yet, so I can't speak to benefits.  My issue was that I was out on Monday morning and it appears that T-Mobile has turned off several Sprint towers near me.  I was sitting in a parking lot near Landmark Mall on -118 dBm Band 25 because two of the sites I used to connect to there were apparently not running, so data would barely move.  This is in addition to my home site which has been off for several weeks, but that wasn't an issue because I don't use wireless data at home.  But if they're starting to turn off Sprint sites and leave holes, then there's really no alternative. So far, I've only seen T-Mobile, but that makes sense since I've only been home and my home site is gone on Sprint, so the site I had been connecting to was a lot weaker.  I'll have to see when I'm out and about, possibly this weekend. When ROAMAHOME came out, I had that removed and blocked from my account since T-Mobile's network is so lousy, so my lines were not automatically pushed to MULTOCN.  I had to have the block removed and then MULTOCN manually added.  That's probably not typical. - Trip
    • Are you seeing a benefit from MOCN?  Is it true that MOCN is highly biased to using T-Mobile towers?  Should everyone with a non-5G phone ask for MOCN? I had the impression it was supposed to be automatic now, perhaps even without being entered explicitly.  Is this not the case?  I realize that it may take some time to draw conclusions so if you do not know yet that is fine. Thanks!
