The phone comes with a screen protector pre-installed. It's not tempered glass but it's pretty good and I'd honestly refrain from removing it/switching it out unless it gets scratched up quite a bit.

I know this isn't the ultra, but 20X on the S20+ is pretty impressive (I know it's still fuzzy, but considering the distance, it's pretty clear). 30X is hard to control handheld. I can not imagine the

Also Tmo has the most uninformed network. You will see towers with B66/4+B12 and some with B66/4 +B2+B12+B71 or B66/4, B71, B12 and even some with just B12 or just B66/4. Sent from my SM-G988U1 usin

Yeah, I'm out for now.  The price is too high.  I'll see what black friday deals bring.

I'm still waiting for the actual pre-order to open on the 20th, gonna see what the leasing offer looks like if it's too high I'll cancel. I figure my 10+ is $41.67 so a monthly payment of $55 or so wouldn't be the end of the world for me.

Will the S20 variant(s) be compatible with both Sprint and T-Mobile 5G bands?

 

That was my concern initially.  It looks good though.  I'm hoping/guessing that I'll buy a Sprint S20 Ultra and sometime throughout the year, there will be a firmware update where things start talking to TMO towers too.

Looking like the 128GB Ultra is going to be $58 a month, not terribly bad compared to my $43 I'm paying now for my 10+. Getting excited now can't wait for that 120hz display and camera.

Meh looks like I will be hanging on to my S10 for a while longer, no 5G here and that 120hz display is sorta disappointing due to its only capable at 1080p, smart money will be grabbing the S10 once the S20 drops.  I will wait for a price drop or when they offer a better deal later on in the year

I don't even know if 5G is live in my area, happy with LTE for now. Either way I look forward to my Ultra.

Still on s8 here so I will probably make the jump to S20 Ultra even though I most likely won't see 5g in a while. But my main question is are the s20 carrier specific or will the unlocked have all lte/5G bands?

Sprint has the lease price of the S20 on their website now.  $41.67/month.

Are they still doing the plan $$ bump for 5G? I thought it was supposed to be $10 more a line or something.

5G is now free with all plans.

Thank goodness. It was going to be a tough family talk on how all our lines were going up $5-10 with the S20 and then add more on top for the 5G.....

so...

S20 at $41.67

S20+ at $50

S20 Ultra at $58.....

That's like 2 less beers a month, so obviously going Ultra. 🤣 🍻

My only hesitation is the size of the Ultra, but I've toyed with a Note10+ and it's only a few mm longer than that.

You'll cave, you always do. 

I think I'll wait for black friday, then cave.   Or if there's a deal or something between now and then. 🙂

I've reserved them, and my bill rolls over on the 21st, so not sure if I'll click into 12th payment status or not. I may have to wait another month. We'll see Saturday.

I ran into that last year for some reason but not this year.

      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.

      Noticed on TM Reddit that the S8 Active is coming unlocked, so would be compatible with Sprint.
      (Also supports TM B71)

    • The real question will be the effect on the upcoming 2.5 EBS auction.  T-Mobile might be able to get very good prices with almost no implementation costs for much better service in small cities and rural areas.
    • What was the previous 600Mhz antenna?
    • Auction 107: Hit $80.9B.   Now going to enter the assignment phase where bidders can bid on specific spectrum blocks. Wonder how fast this will get online this year.  TMobile's head start with 2.5GHz is gonna get challenged.  I could see them taking the lead in wireless tests in 2021 but then the gap close in 2022.   Auction 108: Three blocks.  49.5, 50.5 and 16.5MHz. I wonder how heavy TMobile will buy here. It'll sorta clean up their holdings and I could see down the road if they don't bid they have to invest more time keeping interference out of the current existing white-space. Likely at least secure entire counties they already own a partial license in. Everything about 2.5 is such a mess.  
    • So very interesting find , at my home The 5G upper layer indicator was turned off on certain LTE bands, but still has NR connected. It was on a Band 30 5 mhz one tower, a Band 30 10mhz chunk on another, and my home tower the Band 2 5Mhz chunk now has no indicator on. I am wondering if they are maybe configuring the the tower for DSS NR band 2
    • Seems to be the norm in many markets. They're replacing nearly all existing antennas on sites here in New York too.
