    Android Phone with Best Reception?

    Take a look at the G7 ThinQ. I've heard that recent LG phones (V30 and newer) have some very impressive RF performance, and the G7 is a 6 month old phone going for under $400 on Swappa.
  2. You don't drop to CDMA and carryover a VoLTE call. It goes from VoLTE to no service, and the call drops.
  3. I wish they announced a single name of 1 of these "225+ cities"... how is anyone supposed to know where to expect to see Gigabit LTE? I doubt they have the backhaul for 99% of these sites to see past 300.
  4. I'm curious about how much BRS/EBS spectrum Sprint holds where I live. The FCC spectrum dashboard no longer seems to be maintained... is there an easy data base to find this information?
  5. Can anybody confirm or deny cross carrier HD Voice with AT&T, T-Mobile, or Verizon?

    iPhone XS Thread

    I've had better performance in general on my Xs over my X on AT&T... does anyone know if UL CA is supported on any frequencies other than 41?
  7. I saw Verizon prepaid roam onto Sprint 1X in Duluth, MN in April of this year.

    Google Pixel 3 / Pixel 3 XL User Thread

    Yes it does.
  9. Responding to a few earlier posts, Sprint does have an Ookla server in Minneapolis and they were put on the Verizon neutral host iDAS at the MOA.
  10. It's about time. Hopefully lilotimz or wiwavelength/s4gru can answer, but with eHRPD, can calls hand off from LTE to CDMA? Has Sprint made any progress with this? I noticed that it was mentioned earlier but nobody really got a clear answer.

    Calling Plus (VoLTE "Lite")

    Someone here can probably explain this, but what exactly is preventing Sprint from doing full on VoLTE? Lack of macro density? Lack of coverage? Something in the core of their network? I remember years ago their excuse was lack of fallback to CDMA, but what's causing it today? Why can't they do a full scale VoLTE launch like Verizon did? Or at least a market-by-market launch like AT&T, where they know they have the LTE reliability and capacity?
  12. Thank you. I agree completely. You mean to tell me that Sprint, who has a nationwide roaming agreement with Verizon for voice/text, does better than T-Mobile? Shocking.
  13. First, those are 3rd party sources. If that makes me "hate them" then yes I'm a hater LOL. Secondly, I don't hate T-Mobile or Sprint. In fact, I have a line with T-Mobile. AT&T just has 4x as many cells where I live... T-Mobile only has a few less than them... Sprint has like 9 sites cover 280K people.
  14. LOL, ok... www.rootmetrics.com/en-US/content/mobile-performance-in-the-us-part-1-performance-across-the-entire-united Sprint ranks ahead of them in call and text... which they can roam on Verizon for. https://opensignal.com/reports/2017/08/usa/state-of-the-mobile-network www.speedtest.net/reports/united-states/ https://www.pcmag.com/Fastest-Mobile-Networks Don't be delusional. *based on Sprint's interpretation of Nielsen data
