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

I was able to get both of mine through, no mention of pre-order bonus though. Paid extra for the overnight shipping though for $10 it's worth it. An S20 Ultra and S20 coming my way both in Cosmic Gray lol.

I think I’ll sit this one out until the end of the year. I normally buy the note and an iPhone for sure but I buy other phones when good deals come up. Plus 5g on all carriers is a hot mess right now.

I don't think I'll be upgrading until the S22, this should last me a long while unless something really big happens next year lol. Plus it's only an extra $13 a month really can't pass it up.

Got the S20 Ultra, Buds+, and 44mm Watch Active 2 for around $1000. Samsung also sent me an email this morning giving me my extra $35 credit since I made my preorder before I could get my reservation email.

Nothing was mentioned as far as pre-order bonus's with Sprint unfortunately. Probably won't get anything.
I'm going unlocked for the first time. I'm done with subsidizing. Now my iPhones and Galaxy devices will come straight from the source.

You should get the $235 credit towards any accessories (Smartwatch maybe or new Buds+)

Traded in my S10+ for a $600 discount and used the $200 credit on a bundle with the Galaxy Watch Active 2 and Galaxy Buds+. Overall I am paying $799 for the phone, I got the Galaxy Buds+ for free and because the Watch Active 2 was part of a bundle it was only $175. My subtotal was $986 (I got insurance for $11.99) and taxes were $96 so about $1,083 in total. Overall I got $875 in discounts.

I always tell people if you don't care about holding onto your phone for forever, Samsung always gives insane discounts for trade-ins. It's kind of a sunken cost since I paid off the phone already but it's more than I'd get if I sold the phone on eBay or some other site for myself.

I've done this every year for the past 3 years. I got my S9+ for $400 on day 1 by trading in my S8+, my S10+ for $500 on day 1 by trading in my S9+, and now I'm getting the S20 Ultra, Galaxy Buds+, and Galaxy Watch Active (~ $2,000 worth of products) for just under $1,100.

Mine was a bit higher since I only had a S7 to trade in. $200 for it is a great price. I paid 1320 for everything with 96 in taxes, 235 in credit, samsung care plus, $65 led case, galaxy buds, 45 watt charger.

Idk I haven't seen anything mentioned anywhere so I'm just going to assume I will get nothing and if I get something then it's cool I guess.

What's everybody going with for cases and/or screen protectors? I typically use Otterbox but for my S9+ I've been using a Spigen case with a Bodyguardz screen protector after I had issues with wireless charging working with the Otterbox. I might try the Commuter series Otterbox this time and see how it does.

Probably going with a Spigen again they're solid and cheap, I'll use the factory installed protector until it gets too beat up and then probably go naked after that.

I received my S20 Ultra Spigen case today. Decided to go with the Spigen again, figured I'd start with the cheaper one and if I didnt like the way it fit i could get the Otterbox later. Here's some pictures comparing size with an S9+ Spigen case. b3621cd025419c6d818555ecaee650f6.jpgc13b370a7603db84b1f43862af7068ec.jpg

I got a chance to play with the S20 Ultra in Best Buy yesterday and it honestly doesn't feel much larger in my hand than my S10+. They didn't have a Galaxy Z Flip on display though, only the Galaxy Fold.

I use speck presidio cases only for my samsungs. I like the grippy-ness (?) of the case, and I can't stand fully enclosed cases. I already got mine in for the ultra when it gets here. Gotta pick it up at walgreens...

      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.
