    Let's be careful with the political commentary. Please stay within the rules https://s4gru.com/forums/topic/1197-s4gru-posting-guidelines-aka-the-rulez/ Robert

    I'm no moderator here officially, but I've served as one on many other sites, both private and commercial/for profit, and just want to underscore for you guys continuing this: both Robert and other mods have warned you, and yet you're continuing the political-based discussion. Just to interject a friendly alternative suggestion before one of them comes in here and acts on that timeout threat - you could just as easily continue these back-and-forth arguments directly via private messaging, which the site supports. It's your choice whether or not to do that, but you can continue as you are, or have that choice forced on you the hard way.

    You both need to stop it and stop it now. Any further arguments between the both of you will result in a time off on the forum. TS out

    They really need to get this guy out front more. He is obviously knowledgeable then proceeds to explain this upgrade to a group in such a concise manner, even journalists can understand it well. John is funny and charismatic with the crowd, he has been with Sprint for so long. Marcelo went from surprise new CEO, awkward Wall Street talking head appearances, to selling a merger. No one is really sure what his customer facing role is outside of rich people poasting on Twitter. Another great presser from Dr. John. Thanks for finding this NextgenCPU!

    Going off topic a bit, the merger that I wished would've happened a long time ago is MetroPCS and U.S. Cellular. Their networks would've complimented each other so well and they would've been a decent 5th nationwide carrier with a combined 14 Million customers.

    Screen protector is great, well done Samsung. I do have to say, this phone is a beast for rf performance, I'm at work in the basement and I haven't dropped to 3G yet, still holding onto 2-3 bars of LTE. VoLTE worked fantastic just a few minutes ago very clear.

    It should be noted that in certain conditions the device will used a cropped image from the main sensor instead of the second lens. That was the case on the S9+ too. I can't say that I've seen the same smudginess that you guys are mentioning on my device. Here are 3 unedited pictures I took last Thursday for comparison between the zoom and the other 2 sensors.

    Am I the only one who doesn't care about 5G? I'm more than satisfied with LTE. I'll continue using it until I absolutely have to use 5G.

    I've only been using VoLTE for less than a week now but I have to say that I have no issues so far in either New York or Boston. Cal quality has been great (especially to Verizon customers using VoLTE) and there have been no blocked or dropped calls so far.

    In order to accomplish this, you need to be rooted and have Magisk Manager installed. In Magisk Manager, go to Downloads and search for VoEnabler. Install VoEnabler and reboot the phone. VoLTE should start working.

    1. I recognize the site rules regarding political discussion. This political topic is directly relevant to the pending Sprint/T-Mobile merger. 2. The previous administration was known to be broadly opposed to large corporate mergers, including AT&T/Time Warner, a fact well known and not germane to this discussion. 3. The reality is: Many sources (including, but not limited to: The New Yorker, The Washington Post, Market Watch, Slate, CNN, PolitiFact, NBC News, Politico . . .) have reported that the President personally instructed Gary Cohn, formerly director of the National Economic Council, to contact officials at the Department of Justice to attemp to intervene in the merger, reportedly because of the President's extreme antipathy toward CNN. 4. The US House of Representatives is reportedly investigating this interference, which certainly lends credance to the whole story.. No, I don't have "proof". My "paranoid and basely claims" (I can only assume you meant "baseless") are, in fact, neither paranoid nor baseless, but are widely substantiated. Moreover, insulting me, however vaguely you do so, is inappropriate on this forum.

    The $$$ will be paid out as a bonus to Sprint executives for achieving "cost savings and efficiencies."

    I believe it. They can certainly operate 5G-NR on 600 MHz, which I assume is what they plan to do. If, as some articles have suggested, failure to operate 5G-NR in mmWave spectrum makes it not "real 5G", however... - Trip

    I took my phone off of the charger Friday night right at midnight, 1 day and 9 hours later, as I'm typing this, I'm at 52%. All this includes lots of phone calls and emails, over an hour of youtube, about 30 minutes of 4k 60fps video and lots of web browsing.

    Almost a week later and I'm loving this phone, battery has been phenomenal, rf performance is stellar and much improved over the 9+, and yet it still has the same dimensions. VoLTE has been solid too, just wish it worked on the magic box which I don't even need but someone else in the house needs it because of a stupid iPhone that has horrible rf performance but I digress. Way to go Samsung.

    The pending Airave 4 would supposedly be mostly pushed to residential folks who likely have decent home ISP while MBs will be more for business and commercial entities. Ofcourse there's nothing stopping one getting a MB for a home if they want to and vice versa with an Airave 4. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk

    Yeah I noticed. That's why it should be aggregated with B25 long time away. Sprint is Still the only one that doesn't aggregated all their bands. 25+41 being more important. Sent from my SM-G965U1 using Tapatalk

    Ported back to sprint yesterday. TMO was just to slow and getting slower (very large market share). After further optimization more band 41 going live sprint is getting faster and faster. Also, no volte live yet the I phone has the option, but the network is not making use of it yet here In El Paso. No band 26 as of yet. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Sascha Segan said that the 421.68Mbps 5G speed test in Chicago was done on 60MHz of spectrum.

    I’m really impressed with the amount of coverage sprint is providing with their 5G. See this is the advantage Sprint has when it comes to 5G. Their spectrum is 5G ready and all the need to do is get Massive MIMO on these towers and backhaul. This could be really big for Sprint if the results from users are positive.

    The writer does not know the difference between a mobile data transmission standard (5G) and the frequency that standard is transmitted over and uses his own ignorance to bash Sprint. This is the definition of "Fake News". This article is wrong and should be taken down.

    T-Mobile is delaying their 5G launch until the second half of this year because phones with the X50 modem don't support 600MHz 5G, only mmWave and some sub-6GHz bands. https://www.theverge.com/2019/2/25/18239670/tmobile-5g-launch-delay-second-half-2019

    On another note, the site in general has seemed to have issues the past several days in terms of either accessibility or latency from my end. Hadn't seen any particular posts from others expressing the same thing but I've experienced it both at work, at home and on via mobile. Having said the above, right now and generally today so far its been fine.
