  1. If anyone here is in the Houston Texas area, are you or have u gotten any 4g lte connections around town and if so where about? If not, does anyone have any info as to when lte will go live in the city
  2. Only specs I've really seen leaked are 5.7" screen and based on the unannounced "Mate 8" model. From http://www.breathecast.com/articles/nexus-2015-rumors-news-leaked-video-reveals-specs-of-purported-2015-huawei-nexus-video-30407/ The Mate 7 had a 4100+mah battery, speculation is that this could have the same or bigger. Anything passed through the FCC for a US and/or Sprint version that covers the Spark bands? I'm in the market for a new phone this fall and will be going off contract, buying a Nexus.
  3. The rumor mill has fully geared up, so it seems time for a thread in which the potential HTC-made 2016 Nexus phones can be discussed. Rumors suggest two phones: a 5" device codenamed Sailfish, and a larger device codenamed Marlin. Both are thought to be produced by HTC. [There's also a report that Google is making its own phone, without an OEM partner--along the lines of a Pixel phone--but that report has been largely discounted.] Android Police has claimed it knows with 8/10 certainty some specs of the smaller device--Sailfish: Manufactured by HTC 5" 1080p display (~440PPI) Quad-core 2.0GHz 64-bit processor (model unknown) 4GB RAM 2770mAh battery 32GB storage (unknown if multiple models will be available, or even if this is the base storage level) 12MP rear camera, 8MP front Rear-mounted fingerprint scanner USB-C port (bottom) Bottom-firing speaker or speakers (unknown if dual) Top-mounted headphone jack Bluetooth 4.2 Any thoughts on these devices? The last several Nexus devices have been Sprint compatible; is there any reason to think these won't be? Any hints in regulatory filings? How is HTC's radio performance, generally? Will Sprint sell them directly, and even if they do, will it still be preferable to buy directly from Google?
  4. Did anyone notice the video capture specs?
  5. With the FCC and Sprint, T-Mobile, AT&T and Verizon have agreed to this new unlocking policy. How does this effect sprint phones such as the IPhone. I have heard that Sprint can unlock your phone but you can not take it to other carriers such as Verizon and the IPhone can only be used overseas. (Correct me if I am wrong). I am glad that this has finally happened. But when it comes to Sprint how would this work?
  6. I just got back from a trip to Canada with my Nexus 5. After reviewing my options I decided to go the local prepaid sim card route. I went with Petro-Canada which is offering a $5 micro sim with a minimum of a $15 top up to the account. I then used $10 of the account balance for an allocation of 100MB of data. Each additional MB after the 100 is only $0.10 too so there is no penalty for running over. The only gotcha I ran into, being new to gsm/umts, was the need to program the APN settings. Petro-Canada doesn't make it entirely clear either. Well at least it wasn't for me. They have settings on their website but they are listed under MMS settings. Anyway, once I got it working the Nexus performed well and I had plenty of data available for my short trip to the north. The plan did not include any LTE connections but I was able to connect to HSPA+, as indicated by signal check, so my speeds were very good. When I got back I swapped my Sprint sim back in and everything worked as expected. So if you find yourself headed north, check out Petro-Canada. It worked very well for me.
  7. Just found this article on CNET. http://news.cnet.com/8301-1035_3-57526808-94/google-lg-to-unveil-nexus-phone-at-the-end-of-the-month/ I have never been a fan on LG. What do you think? -Luis
  8. "Samsung to bring the Tab DUOS, Tab 8.0 AMOLED, Tab 11 Super PLS TFT and NEXUS 11 " http://www.sammobile.com/2013/04/29/samsung-to-bring-the-tab-duos-tab-8-0-amoled-tab-11-super-pls-tft-and-nexus-11/
  9. Got hit with data roaming charges while in Canada. Before I went to Canada recently, on our two GNex phones, I selected the option to disable data roaming. (Unchecked allow data roaming). When in Canada, SMS text messaging is included in my plans and I pay a per minute fee to talk, I use wifi for data. I understand that MMS won't work when data roaming is disabled. While in Canada, the data symbol never showed up unless I was on wifi, the voice signal bars were never blue, they kept grey, which indicated I didn't have a data connection to the Google servers. So, why did I get hit with data roaming charges on both phones? On the previous version of the Android software (4.0 possibly) on these phones, configured them the same way, didn't get any roaming charges. Now its its on version 4.1 (ish), I get hit with charges. Is this a new bug with this version of the OS software?
  10. Google released 4.2.1 to fix bugs. Wonder what version will be released for EVO LTE? http://bgr.com/2012/11/27/android-4-2-1-update-google/
  11. Sprint appears to be giving free extended batteries to new and existing Galaxy Nexus users on 8/19. http://phandroid.com...ustomers-deals/
  12. Last month I got an automated email from Sprint, telling me that new firmware update will allow me to use SprintTV on the GNex phone. The app store says that the SprintTV app is not compatible, is this changing, anyone know?
  13. So today 6/22/12 1:30pm i called sprint to see if they have more info on not only LTE but also the way slow 3g speeds in and around the dfw metroplex. Now before i start i have the galaxy nexus and the iphone 4s as a work phone avrg. speed tests on 3g with the nexus is normally around 600kbps or less up and 150kbps or less down and the 4s is normally around 1200kbps down and 400kbps up and these are side by side results. Now back to my phone call with sprint. so i started with LTE questions i asked when the switch was going to be turned on in dfw because when i purchased the 4s back in January they (sprint customer service) said that LTE was coming in early spring to dfw and when i purchased the nexus in may they said sometime in mid year across Texas but DEFFINATLY in june for dfw i was assured. Now they are saying that it wont be till october-november for dfw says sprint customer service tier3 and that even the the reception will be mostly in the downtown dfw/ftworth areas and not till beginning of 2013 will we see reception all through dfw metroplex. Then they asked me why i was so upset about this news because they said i dont own a lte phone so this doesnt affect me . WOW!!!!!!!!! I said well i have a samsung galaxy nexus the person proceeded to tell me that this is not a lte phone its 3G ONLY..... oh boy i said well the box, the about phone in the phone settings, the sprint website, and the rep who sold it to me says CDMA/LTE!!! He still said but the phone is not lte supported and we went back and forth for about 20 min and he (sprint tier3 customer service) and the person i was forwarded to his supervisor i assume tier4 say and i quote "THE SAMSUNG GALAXY NEXUS IS NOT SUPPORTED BY LTE IT IS A 3G ONLY DEVICE" so ended up being offered a full refund and a new upgrade free and they are overnighting me the Samsung galaxy SIII 32g at no charge the day it comes out for the inconvenience....................... so i now have questions!!!!!!!!!!! Is the Nexus really not supported by lte even though all documents say so? Is lte really been pushed back again to fall for dfw? Is the reception really supposed to only be in downtown areas till 2013? And lastly are sprint customer service agents brain damaged?!?!?!
  14. I am currently deciding between the Galaxy Nexus and Evo 4G LTE. I am upgrading from the iPhone 4S to one of these phones. Which phone? Also who ever owns the Galaxy Nexus please list pros and cons of owning the Galaxy Nexus
  15. hey guys i was just wondering because im able to upgrade two weeks before the galaxy nexus comes out if i should get the galaxy nexus or wait a little bit longer and get the htc jet. i really dont mind waiting a little longer for the htc jet but since i really dont know too much about processors and ram and all that stuff i was just wondering if you guys can help me out picking out the better phone. any help or comments would be appreciated thanks
  16. Although it wasn't confirmed by Google or Asus, sources for Digitimes have revealed that Asus will build the rumored 7 inch Nexus tablet aimed squarely at the budget market currently dominated by Kindle Fire. Even though the Xoom didn't really blow any doors off when it was released, the partnership on this tablet can put Asus even further "on the map" as an Android tablet manufacturer. The honeycomb platform was good for advancing Android tablets, but people want their phone and tablet on the same operating system. It is a pain to even switch off between Sense and Touchwiz, let alone Gingerbread and Honeycomb. The combination of a budget-friendly tablet and premium construction from Asus should sell in mass and could steal away iPad customers on a budget, where the Kindle Fire has failed thanks to some features absent from the Fire. Now we just need some leaks on the specs. Source http://www.digitimes...20308PD215.html
  17. by Scott Johnson Sprint 4G Rollout Updates Thursday, March 15, 2012 - 12:51 PM MDT The 7 inch form factor for the tablet PC was largely understated up until the Kindle Fire’s release last year. There were the expensive high end Android offerings from Samsung, Dell, Acer, Toshiba and HTC as well as the Blackberry Playbook. The inexpensive end was headlined by the Kindle Fire, Barnes and Noble Nook and Lenovo. Sales were underwhelming, until the Kindle Fire caught everyone’s attention and sold millions of units. Now, we have what may be shaping up to be a faceoff between iOS and Android in the 7 inch tablet market. The idea of an offering smaller than the 10 inch tablet may have been dancing in Apple and Google’s heads prior to the Fire being released, but it would seem that they didn’t pull the trigger on those plans until after seeing how the $200 Kindle Fire did in the marketplace. Apple is rumored to be releasing a tablet in a size between the 3.5 inch size of the iPod touch and the 9.7 inch iPad. Some say that the reasoning behind Apple’s puzzling move to ditch the numerical model designation of the new iPad is so that they can simplify the tablet line and release an iPad mini, with naming conventions similar to their line of iPods using generations instead of numeric model numbers. Current rumors have Apple releasing a 7.85 inch tablet with a price point under $300 for the base model. The bezel is also rumored to be shrunk down to increase the portability of the unit. Apple rarely makes bad decisions when it comes to what components to insert in their devices, so it is safe to say this would be a device of “the highest quality.” We could see this “iPad mini” as early as 3rd quarter 2012. Situated on the opposite end is the latest offering in Google’s Nexus line of devices. It was recently confirmed by industry sources that Asus will manufacture a 7 inch Android tablet with the Nexus designation. This tablet would see a price point between $150 and $250 and be constructed of premium components. Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt was quoted stating that the tablet would be “of the highest quality.” This tablet is rumored to be hitting shelves as early as May, giving it a slight head start on its competition from Apple. Another competitor in the game will be Samsung, which has built a reputation for releasing high quality devices. They may have something in the works that would integrate the “S Pen” stylus present in the Galaxy Note and the Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet they revealed at CES 2012. Samsung would be smart to recognize the trend in the 7 inch tablet market and keep their offering in the $300 or less range if they want to be competitive. They have to be careful with this as they don't want to undercut sales of their Galaxy Note phone/tablet. The last competitor in this battle for 7 inch tablet supremacy could come from Nokia. With Microsoft bringing their Windows Phone 8 integration of phone and desktop operating systems to market this year, it would only make sense that they would include it on tablets as well. If they intend on moving into contention with Android and iOS, they can’t afford to miss a “battle” as this could turn out to be. To be competitive in this battle, they would be wise to offer a 7 inch tablet in the under $250 price range. Given the ability of WP 7.5 to run fast and smooth on hardware that appears on paper to be underwhelming, they should be able to hit that price point. This summer is looking to be a battle of heavyweight 7 inch tablets at a price lower than we may be used to for high end, well outfitted tablets. Will they see the sales numbers they are looking for? Or did the Kindle Fire snap up all the budget-minded tablet buyers, leaving these tablets out in the cold? If you were in the market for a 7 inch tablet, which tablet would interest you the most?

  18. by Scott Johnson Sprint 4G Rollout Updates Tuesday, March 13, 2012 - 2:00 AM MDT Most of us have at least heard of NFC, the Google Wallet app, or the capability to use our NFC enabled phone as a wireless payment system, but do we know the power and uses of Near Field Communication? NFC has endured a slow start, with very few devices that contain the communication chip, but Sprint seems to be giving it a boost by including NFC on all its LTE handsets. Sprint’s director of consumer product marketing, Trevor Van Norman has said that “it is in our best interest to push the service” and he is right, as use of the payment system can bring in additional money for the carrier. Outlook is rosy for this technology, and its ability to facilitate payments, with Juniper research predicting that NFC payments will hit $74 Billion by 2015. Near field communication was evolved out of other work and accepted as an ISO standard in 2003. The way it works is that when two devices are brought within 4 cm of each other, the devices will begin to communicate if they are both powered, or the RF signal from the powered device will power the unpowered RFID and begin communication. This allows a NFC enabled cellphone to communicate with any compatible RFID tag, powered or not. This opens doors well beyond mobile payments. Most tech-savvy consumers are familiar with the “QR code” or quick response code. This allows someone to scan a barcode with their cell phone camera to display information or direct the smartphone to a URL. NFC can be used in a very similar way; in fact, the LG Tag uses this capability as a marketing point even though all NFC phones are capable of it. A store could stick a NFC tag on their entrance and allow patrons to “check in” with Foursquare or Facebook. Posters can have NFC RIFDs to allow those who are interested in more information easy access to predetermined information that will be passed to the phone or automatically load a website into the phone's broswer for even more information. The tags could also be used in such places as landmarks, art galleries and museums to allow access to more information on what is being viewed. Since the tags are relatively inexpensive and require no power other than what the reading NFC device provides, it can be adopted quickly once more devices contain NFC. A small RFID can also be placed on Bluetooth devices to instantly connect a Bluetooth accessory to a phone without needing to pair them. It can configure another faster method to transfer files, like WiFi, since NFC is not a very fast means of transport. Pictures and video can even be displayed on a NFC enabled television from the phone by simply holding the phone to the RFID in the television. The possibilities for this technology are grand, but will it be adopted for more than mobile payments? Mobile payments will most likely drive the train for this technology to be widely accepted for all its various uses. Even Apple is rumored to be including NFC in its next iPhone, which seems to be the last hurdle for a technology before it is truly accepted.

  19. Hello all, I have done a bit of research and I cannot find a definite answer to my question: Will the Sprint Galaxy Nexus have both wimax and LTE radios? I have wimax in my area now (Jacksonville, fl), but it's kinda weak in a lot of places. And I don't see any plans for LTE in my city. I really like the Nexus, but I don't want to switch to an LTE-only phone when I don't have LTE yet. (Yes, I can use 3G, but I do use wimax from time-to-time and I will miss the speeds.) Does anyone know if both radios are possible? (Also, any info on J-ville receiving LTE?) Thanks!
