I love this phone!

5.3" screen with insane resolution on super amoled plus, this phone is awesome as hell!

I haven't run an LTE speed test yet, but I can run one later today and let you know. I know a lot of people are getting 45-59 down, hopefully I get that speed

@orangekid make sure u do an HSPA+ speed test too. I'm totally sure AT$Ts HSPA+ is slower than T-mobile's because theirs is only category 14 while T-mo is category 42. My next phone is going to be a WP8 that will work on T-mobile's upcoming LTe network but I'll be fine with HSPA+ as their implementation of it is more spectrum efficient than AT$T and VZs implementation of it according to what I read on tmonews. Wonder what @gTen will say about that.

first of all, vzw has no hspa+ so your statement makes no sense. also, by nature, lte is more spectrum efficent than hspa+. it can litterally serve up more bandwidth on less spectrum. that is what verizon is rolling out, so your statement is also not true.
concerning att, im sure their hspa+ network services more people that tmobiles small foot print. therefore also more efficent in another way than tmo.
i dont know what facts you are talking about. please cite source.
i really dont care if you were talking to me or not. the beauty of a public forum is that we all free to be here. even the wp7 trolls and tmo fanbois.

I know VZ has no HSPA+ I was talking about their LTe. HSPA+ is apparently more spectrum efficient than LTe release 8 which is what AT$T and VZ are both rolling out. Actually read my post this time. T-mo plans to roll out release 10 of LTe. and u wanted a source, here it is

Quote:
Ray continued to point out how T-Mobile will differentiate its LTE network from the competition by deploying LTE Release 10, which can be upgraded to LTE Advanced via a software upgrade. Ray explained that other operators, notably AT&T and Verizon have not deployed LTE Release 10 gear but instead opted to deploy LTE Release 8.
Quote:
Editors Note: Just to clarify for everyone who may ask, T-Mobileís original LTE rollout will be theoretically capable of 72Mbps. The ability to software update the network to LTE 10 allows for T-Mobile to easily upgrade their network to much faster speeds with more backhaul. LTE 10 has a theoretical max of 150Mbps. For what itís worth, our main spectrum guru Conan Kudo tells me that HSPA+ is really more network efficient than LTE up until release 10.

Re: what phone do you currently own?

Why would I care about my HSPA+ speed when I get LTE wherever I go?

It's like a one legged dude telling me "you might be able to run way faster than me on two legs, but let's see if you can do it on one leg"

HSPA+ on ATT in my area may or may not be faster than TMO, but LTE sure as hell is faster than anything tmobile has at the moment. If they get LTE in the future then good for them.

To be honest, I'd rather get on Sprint's LTE coming in a few months to my city, at least Sprint still offers real unlimited data, unlike ATT or Tmobile. But I wanted the Note now and don't like waiting. So maybe my next phone will be a Sprint LTE phone with unlimited data (no throttling).

But T-Mobile was a good phone company to be with, I just got tired of slow speeds, weaker phones, and that stupid AWS band that meant I couldn't use any international phones, or pay significantly higher prices for AWS enabled ones, the penta-band Galaxy Nexus being the exception.

but just to clarify, tmobile not only hasnt rolled anythjing out yet, nor have they even announced a vendor for their infrastructure overhaul. everything is just speculation at this piont.
also, it easier to come out with a slightly newer variation of the same tech when your 2 years late to the party. (cough cough, im looking at you tmobile)

Re: what phone do you currently own?

Not only that, but is Sprint doing 8 or 10? because between Sprint and Tmobile, I'd rather go unlimited data and phones that are actually coming out SOON with LTE
