    LG G6 to be Sprint's first HPUE-capable device

    Nope, not on this update.

    LG G6 to be Sprint's first HPUE-capable device

    I got a 707.3 MB Software update today. It says it improves camera features and Android assistant (google Lens). Optimizes performance & includes android security updates. After the update my phone rebooted then said LG G6 ThinkQ then went to a white screen and got stuck on the White screen with the word Sprint and the Sprint Logo above it. After 15 minutes on that screen I couldn't take it anymore and I held the volume down and the power button at the same time until it rebooted again. The update finished after the reboot and the phone is fine now.

    Is anyone interested in this mid range phone? 6 inch screen 5,000 mAh non removable battery 3GB Ram with 32GB internal storage and SD card slot. I'm wondering if it's HPUE capable?

    Yes I'm curious about this too.

    Pixel 2 XL Preview/User Thread

    Ugh the display is soooo disappointing. Erica knows her stuff with displays. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0JjbMT_x6CM

    LG V30

    The Pixel 2 XL is capable of 3X CA and I've reached LTE speeds of 112mpbs on a 3X CA phone. It would be great to have 4X but those sweet Pixel dual front facing speakers and significantly larger battery have me on the fence. I'm leaning towards the Pixel.

    Essentially a sprint exclusive.

    Is this an HPUE device?
  8. No not for less if you've upgraded a device in the past 2 yrs. For instance my sister has 5 lines. 4 of the lines upgraded using 2yr subsidized pricing. 1 line upgraded a year ago, 1 did it 8 months ago, 1 about 6 months ago and 1 did it last month. To change plans Sprint is charging those 4 lines an additional $25 per line on top of their normal plan rate. Only 1 out of the 5 lines isn't getting hit with this $25 fee because they are out of contract.

    LG V20: LG's Next V10? (LG-LS997)

    Love the phone. Battery life leaves something to be desired but there are so many nice little features. You'll like the camera. I suggest setting the front facing Camera to 5MP and rear facing to 12MP. If you use your phone in the dark I'd download "Night Owl" app so you can make the screen dimmer as it doesn't get as dim as my Samsung Note 4 did. Updates seem to be fine but I'm used to slow Samsung Updates. "Knock On" feature is great and fingerprint reader is accurate. I suggest watching some tips and tricks videos on youtube. I'd watch a few different ones as you might learn something new from different videos. Overall it performs really well. Enjoy the phone.

    LG V20: LG's Next V10? (LG-LS997)

    It seems like such a small thing to like but none of my Samsung phones showed the battery life of Bluetooth headphones and its very handy info to have especially when you use them for the gym. I don't have to worry about my music stopping half way thru a workout. I was pumped when I saw that the phone had this indicator.

    LG V20: LG's Next V10? (LG-LS997)

    It was a concern for me too but I took several side by side indoor pics using auto focus for both phones. It was a complete landslide victory for the V20. I can't say outdoor pics would yield the same result because I sold the Note 4 before I could test those but I'm guessing the result would be similar.

    Good to know. I'm waiting for mine to arrive. I might not open them. I'll just put them on Craigslist for $100 and take the best offer. I'm not a big fan of earbuds anyway. I love the phone though. I came from a Note 4. Huge upgrade especially the camera.

    Samsung Galaxy Note 4 User Thread

    I still have my Note 4. I just got an update today. Hoping it fixes the GPS. It worked but it was always pointing in the wrong direction so it threw me off.

    Sprint to end 2 Year Contracts

    It's like they're/there/ their. You rarely see those used correctly anymore. Or like "dieded". Did he dieded?....Ugh I hate that stupid meme. God I feel like I'm 80 years old. You kids get off my damn lawn! Oh but back to the top....Maverick and AppleFanBoy both have good points. I would be tempted by that 40GB family deal. To make things more complicated the reason I use less data from Sprint now is because I switched my internet provider to Comcast which includes their Wi-Fi hotspot app. Most of my data was used listening to music at my gym which doesn't offer WiFi but with the app I can connect to Comcast/Xfinity internet which seems to be ubiquitous in my town.

    Sprint to end 2 Year Contracts

    So does Sprint lower their monthly rates for existing customers if the 2yr contract subsidy goes away? If not then this hurts existing customers. Or are we thought of as loss leaders who should be forced to switch to limited data plans? I'm not bashing and I really don't use much data these days. I just want to know where I stand.
