Shame that MediaTek, Kirin, Samsung, Spectrum are not getting half the exposure that Qualcomm is getting.

Oops! No band 30?

Nice phone. LG Q8, hopefully that gets offered in the US as well.

Sprint carried a phone like this once. The Kyocera Echo. Total fail. ZTE increases the size now. Let's see how this one works out.

Figures Amazon would play that game. They are not the only store in town..........

Moto X4 Deliveries

in the Article: Google's Project Fi Pushes Back Moto X4 Deliveries forum

Shame. I have been waiting to get my hands on this phone. Looks like the G5S Plus is already out. Hopefully Lenovo gets on the ball with this phone. Best mid-ranger for the money I have seen.

Idol Series

Their 4s was the best one to date.

"thin body of curved glass"

Welcome to the age of Giraffe neck phones with next to bezel-less displays.

ZenFone 4
Sep 25, 2017, 6:44 AM
in the Article: Asus Brings ZenFone 4 Lineup to U.S. forum

The Zenphone 4 and the Moto X4 are practically the same phone from design to specs. Interesting..............

Breakthrough Potential
Sep 22, 2017, 11:15 AM
in the Article: T-Mobile, Sprint Reach Breakthrough On Potential Merger forum

Interesting to see when this goes through. The LTE bands and coverage. Not that both networks were that great for network coverage in the first place.

As easy as XYZ

in the Sony Xperia XZ1 forum

Looks like AT&T is going to not be happy. No LTE band 30.

G to X

Dying to see the X4. Hopefully it will launch soon too.

Re: Oops

in the Apple iPhone X forum

True, but there are people that keep their phones for years too. And at the price-point that this phone is being pushed, you would expect more.

High-End Phones
Sep 15, 2017, 6:44 AM
in the Article: Motorola Commits to Updating High-End Phones to Android Oreo forum

Anxiously awaiting the X4 US launch.

Oops

No band 71. Looks like the V30 holds the accolade for that now.

Re: Samsung Galaxy Note 8+

in the Samsung Galaxy Note8 forum

Brighter and more efficient how? Than the S8+? While I am not a fan of the infinity display and the 18.5:9 screen display ratio, the quality of these displays is top level.

Re: Moto X4
Sep 7, 2017, 1:42 PM
in the Article: Moto X4 Sports Dual Cameras + 16 megapixel Selfie Camera forum

True. A very basic entry level series from what I understand. Even more affordable.

Kirin 970
Sep 6, 2017, 12:37 PM
in the Article: Huawei Announces Kirin 970 With AI Co-Processor forum

I truly hope this gives Snapdragon and Samsung a true run for the money. Their duopoly in the Android market needs more competition so price-points can be more consumer friendly .

Moto X4
Aug 31, 2017, 8:35 PM
in the Article: Moto X4 Sports Dual Cameras + 16 megapixel Selfie Camera forum

From E to G to X Now from E to G to X to Z I truly this one gets as close to flagship without being flagship. The price-point on the Z force is out of reach and the G is slightly becoming more E in performance. Interesting how this X series is going to play out in the hierarchy.

Flagship
Aug 30, 2017, 9:44 PM
in the Article: Blu Vivo 8 Enters the Flagship Fray forum

I still have a Blue Pure XL with a Helio X10. The display, camera, are absolutely on a par with the Galaxy 7. While not a Snapdragon 820 series worthy contender, everything else about the phone is truly flagship.

Re: No Band 71/ 600 Mhz Support
Aug 25, 2017, 8:40 AM
in the Article: Hands On with the Samsung Galaxy Note8 forum

They're probably going to wait for that heralded Snapdragon 845 that is going to be all the rave. Band 2,4,12,66,71 with the last 2 still in infancy stages. Would be nice though to extend coverage in West Virginia, Wyoming, Montana, Maine, Alaska.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8+
Aug 25, 2017, 8:34 AM
in the Samsung Galaxy Note8 forum

Samsung Galaxy Note 8=Samsung Galaxy 8+ w/enhanced camera and a stylus pen. That's about it. "Take Note"

Asus ZenFone AR
Aug 3, 2017, 10:33 AM
in the Asus ZenFone AR forum

Asus makes great phones. This one no exception. I'm surprised they did not go with the 835 processor on this one and stuck with the 821 for whatever reason. One thing for sure, with VZW and Asus, this phone is going to be weighed down by tons of BLOATWARE.

No Lifeline? Blame the Republicans!
Aug 2, 2017, 10:30 AM
in the Article: Republican Proposal Would Eliminate Lifeline Cell Service for Poor forum

"The bill would undercut an essential anti-poverty program that connects families to emergency services, children to educational opportunities, and parents to jobs." Please elaborate as to how it would "undercut" the fraud and abuse which is the main reason that eliminating it is intended to do. Landlines do the same and for years it was used with resounding success. Emergency services, employment and other services function just as well from landlines. When the introduction of the mobile phone version was introduced ...

Variants
Aug 1, 2017, 12:41 PM
in the Article: Motorola Debuts 'S' Variants of the Moto G5 and G5 Plus with Metal Bodies, Bigger Screens, Better Cameras forum

This is great from Motorola (Lenovo) People do not have to be stuck with an entry-level or a flagship and still get pretty decent a phone for an affordable price-point. As long as Motorola keeps up with a good camera which it appears to be the case with the G5S plus, it will draw a larger market.

Re: Motorola Moto Z2 Force
Jul 26, 2017, 10:01 AM
in the Motorola Moto Z2 Force forum

I really would hope so with the specs and the flagship status. I still have my 1st Gen Moto G. For and entry-level it is a great phone overall. The camera though was abysmal. Now with time, hopefully Motorola (Lenovo) got with the program.

Sony XZ Premium
Jul 26, 2017, 9:54 AM
in the Sony XZ Premium forum

When are these bigger manufactures going to get with the program and have band 66?

Motorola Moto Z2 Force
Jul 25, 2017, 1:03 PM
in the Motorola Moto Z2 Force forum

Hopefully Motorola (Lenovo) is getting with the program and making a flagship that competes with others in regards to camera quality. For years their cameras have ben sub par.

8 GB Version
Jul 24, 2017, 9:52 AM
in the Article: OnePlus Says 8 GB Version of OnePlus 5 Available for Immediate Shipping forum

ZTE made a 6GB premium version of their Axon 7. I can't say enough great things about the phone. Hopefully they come out with a similar successor with 8GB like the One Plus 5. Giving customers choice is great.

And watch carriers obligate their customers again to switch out phones so they can access everything. 2G>3G WCDMA>HSPDA>4G>LTE. Hopefully all the North American carriers get on the same boat early with compatible frequency bands.

Coral Blue
Jul 19, 2017, 9:45 AM
in the Article: Coral Blue Galaxy S8 and S8+ Go On Sale In US July 21 forum

Great phone. Why the big deal over a color?

Moto E4
Jul 18, 2017, 9:42 AM
in the Article: MetroPCS to Sell Motorola Moto E4 from July 31 forum

Nice line of phones from the C series to the X. Affordable. One thing Motorola (Lenovo) still needs to concentrate on is the camera quality. Though not intensively flagship quality driven, it would help tremendously. Motorola phones have a reputation of sub-par camera quality.

Avoid Robocalls
Jul 14, 2017, 9:57 AM
in the Article: FCC to Help People with Reassigned Numbers Avoid Robocalls forum

Countless playstore apps for Android users to creat blacklists and block these calls from making it through. Don't recognize the calling number or blocked???? Don't answer!

Speed Boost
Jul 13, 2017, 9:35 AM
in the Article: Sprint Gave Its Galaxy S8 a Speed Boost forum

Sprint needs all the help it can get. Esp. its native footprint.

Idol 5S
Jun 27, 2017, 12:12 PM
in the Article: Alcatel Announces the Idol 5S with Stereo Speakers forum

That the best they can do for a "flagship"? SD 625??? Would a 626 or even a 650 hurt????

8 GB of RAM with 128 GB of storage
Jun 20, 2017, 12:22 PM
in the Article: OnePlus Reveals the OnePlus 5 with Dual Cameras forum

Talk about built in storage!!!!! Phone is going to run like a Bugatti!!!!!

HTC's
Jun 9, 2017, 10:20 AM
in the Article: HTC's U11 Officially Shipping As of Today forum

HTC makes a damn good phone and is underrated due to the hype the Korean manufacturers get.

Re: Disadvantages

in the Article: 5 Reasons to Buy the Unlocked Samsung Galaxy S8 or S8 Plus forum

That is why T-Mobile even on MVNO's offer it. As long as your Android offers Voice over LTE, you are all set! Why AT&T does not, is beyond me. Verizon offers HD calling.
