Got my 45watt charger today, it's freaking huge compared to the included 25watt one and the cable is much thicker I'm curious to try it out when I get home. My buds+ come Monday can't wait to see the improvements compared to the originals which I am giving to my nephew who I just got an S20 for. He was pissed about losing the headphone jack coming from his S9+ so I figured it was a fair compromise giving him my barely worn originals.

The 45w charger is where its at, especially if your battery is almost dead, it charges insanely fast.   Buds plus are great, sound quality when it comes to music sounds the same to me but huge improvements with phone calls.

AT&T N260, not to shabby. I wonder if this is the faster test on an S20 series so far... I'll post more on this in the AT&T thread later. 5e9ff2a623b4dc40e9bd6ac27b77a1f9.jpg

Did you have to get a new at&t sim to connect to 5g?

The phone shipped with a new sim in the box. I didn't try to reuse my old one. Samsung already had it preloaded to my AT&T account, I just had to confirm the numbers matched and activate.

I got the unlocked one and just used the sim from my note 9.  Currently I'm not in a 5g market so I have no idea if I will connect to 5g or not.  I guess I'll hit up at&t later on today.

N5 coverage is spotty at best here so far. But I have found it in a few spots outside of where the coverage map shows it live. That N260 tower I tested on is the only one I've found so far here. On the AT&T version the only NR bands active currently are N5 and N260. Not sure why they disabled the others. Assuming they'll enable through updates as they launch other bands.

Unlikely you'll see 5G with your old sim.

Has anyone had signal issues with the s20+? My band 26 on my s20+ in my home is -118 to -120 while my note 9 is sitting around -107 to -110. Quite annoying as the s20 drops signal alot.

Is anyone else having a problem with the Do Not Disturb Mode to be turned on as scheduled? I can not get the phone to respect the DND hours as scheduled. It never trips over, I have to do it manually every night and turn it off in the morning. Everything else seems to work fine on "as scheduled" like on/off AOD, and restart device.

I've been having a weird GPS issue, but I think its software not hardware. When I plug my phone into my truck for Android Auto it will kill my GPS fix and will not re-establish until a reboot. If I've just rebooted my phone it won't kill it. It couldn't figure out why Waze and Google Maps were all over the place and why my mapping wasn't showing up in CellMapper. Hopefully this gets fixed in a future update. The only other complaint I've got so far is that it loves to stick to B12 LTE, which isn't an anchor band for N5. Its annoying when trying to hunt/map N5. Assuming it's something with this phone as my S9+ hardly saw B12 as primary carrier.

      Samsung Network Vision equipment are highly distinct and fairly easy to spot compared to the equipment that other vendors are deploying. Sprint is Samsung's first extremely massive American contract (baring Clearwire) so there  should be no issues in confusing these equipment for another carrier which happens often with Ericsson NV equipment.

      Below are images of Samsung equipment which includes antennas, remote radio units, base stations, and their mounting configurations.

      Sprint 4G Rollout Updates
      Tuesday, January 31, 2012 - 7:46 PM MST
       
      Since last fall, there had been talk of a Samsung Galaxy Nexus launching on American carriers other than Big Red. Sprint has finally announced several weeks ago that it is the another vendor slated for release in the U.S. Suffice to say, many of us out there, especially those adverse to heading to Verizon and paying its premium prices, are excited about the impending release.
      The good news is that Google could be working on an updated version of the Galaxy Nexus. It has unofficially been dubbed the Galaxy Nexus Plus. There is much anticipation that it will be released before Sprint turns on LTE this summer. It’s not the first time an OEM has refreshed a device and re-released it to the market place, which works to our advantage. It’s rumored that the new Galaxy Nexus will have either a 1.5 or 1.8 GHz Texas Instrument OMAP4670 dual core processor. This would be a significant upgrade from the 1.2 GHz dual core processor found in the current Verizon version.
      We don’t know anything about official specs, but it’s also rumored to have an 8 MP camera. This is a noteworthy upgrade to the 5 MP shooter on the Verizon model (which has been lauded by many techies). We already know that the Sprint model will come installed with Google Wallet, per previous announcements. Some rumors also point to a beefier battery as well. The phone should have all the other features that’s on the current Galaxy Nexus, so now all we have to do is wait.
