I don't think this is a fair review either.

From his review, "At my home in NJ, one bar is pretty typical for Sprint."

Sounds like Sprint's coverage in his home is spotty already, so any phone won't work as intended in his home.

I went to WV a few months ago, and my T-Mobile phone hardly ever got a signal. Can't blame that on the phone...

That 2.5GHz frequency WiMAX operates off is more sensitive to obstacles and interference unfortunately.

IF Sprint were smart they would deploy LTE on the 800mhz band that is being abandoned by shutting off Nextel.

That would be great. Unfortunately though from what I've gathered is that it's not possible to deploy LTE in the SMR band. How true that is, I dont know. Maybe someone can correct me that issue

I don't think they have enough of it to deloy Lte. They're moving their base cdma to that spectrum. Look for the Lte in the 1900 mhz spectrum they clear. Or if lightsquared can get their act together...

I test phones not just in my home, where I admit that Sprint has somewhat weak service, but I drive all over New Jersey. I have a 20-mile circuit that I follow and test how the phone operates in both strong and weak network areas. That's important to test. It had trouble in areas with poor coverage and in areas that have excellent coverage.

I also tested the phone in New York City, which is 35 miles from where I live. It did poorly there, too.

You can't ever say that I don't give each and every phone a fair chance when it comes to performance.

Also, PCMag experience the same problems that I did with respect to 3G performance.
