not bad at all, lol... now what about the features/speed of the phone

 

Features it's not much different than my 10+, bigger screen and battery plus the camera but I haven't really dug into it yet as I had a side job tonight and now just getting home. The speed with 120Hz on is night and day I don't think I could go back to anything else it's really amazing. Waiting on my case to come tomorrow so I am kinda treating it like a baby as it's a bit bigger and I'm not comfortable with it yet. Absolutely love it though.

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

120hz?? is that the screen refresh?

 

Yep it also has a 240Hz touch input rate as well it's smooth and quick to the touch (pun intended).

MKBHD's review is finally up. He's one of the best, IMO.

I’m thinking about waiting too since the ultra 512gb is out of stock. And I was debating between the unlocked version or the Verizon version. How long may it be out of stock? If I don’t get this I’m definitely getting the Note 20* and one or two iPhone 12s lol

The phone isn't even officially released yet, I'm sure there is another update rolling out quite soon. It's great even in current form and will only get better.

Mine is out for delivery now but requires a signature. I have a family member at home who can sign but if they step out and miss the delivery I'll have to go to FedEx myself and pick it up which is pretty annoying.

You can't file the signature online?? I just did this with my FEDEX delivery coming from Dell. There was an option in the FEDEX app.

My phones are coming UPS today, and hopefully my neighbor can intercept to sign 🤞

I've done that before but for some reason it's not providing me that as an option for this package. I opted for them to hold it at a FedEx On-Site location super close to my home so I'll just get it after work.

My concern for the Ultra (and partially why I went S20+) was exactly what MKBHD said in his video. The camera issues like extremely small focal plane might not be easily addressed by software fixes and that physics might win that battle for the worse. I hope that's wrong, but I didn't want to bet on software fixes if it wasn't better out of the box. Not all the reviews of the updated software say all the issues are fixed, just an improvement in the auto-focus issues. The Ultra is using different sensors than the S20+. I sure hope that Samsung can work out all the kinks, obviously.

Well would you look at that, they delivered it to my house anyway. I'm really excited. Does anyone know if it takes the same SIM as the S10+ or do I need a different SIM?

If you want 5G you need the sim that comes with the phone and if it doesn't you need to get one from Sprint.

Something I noticed. The new Tmobile plans on using B25 LTE with N41!

Sent from my SM-G988U1 using Tapatalk
 

My guess is that it'll mostly be used in areas that currently don't have Band 41 but do have Band 25. It'll allow them to skip the Band 41 LTE deployment entirely and shove people onto n41. That way down the line when Band 41 gets shut down in favor of n41, they won't have to worry about migrating anyone from LTE to 5G on that band.

Anybody else having trouble moving their SCP database to their S20? I posted in the SCP Beta thread also, i get an error when I try to export a DB from my S20 and I can't see my storage to import my DB I pulled from my S9+. My phone showed up today 🙂

It was a rough day lol, I left my phone in my office all day as I didn't want to risk anything as I didn't have my case yet. It feels really fragile without it and wow what a difference a case makes, I picked up the ESR Air Armor case from Amazon for like $13 and it's great really gives me a lot of confidence now! it also gives a little protection around the camera bump and makes it a lot more usable laying on a flat surface.

Regular old SIM swap worked from my S10+ to my S20 Ultra. I just went to the activation screen on Sprint's website, put in my IMEI and SIM card number and voilà.

      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.
