Not that the OP isn't a great unit, but it didn't meet my needs. Why? Simple!!! The ZTE Axon 7 is pretty well one- on- one with the OP, but the Axon 7 leaves the OP in the dust when it comes to the speakers . Not that this is my only concern, but along with a 5.5" to 5.7" screen, it's at the top of the list. My current phone is a Alcatel Idol 3 5.5". I buy my unlocked phones outright ...
I just picked this up direct from the website, took about 3 weeks but worth it. Phone is very fast. I use Verizon for voice and T mobile for data. Works pretty good. Sometimes it will jump around on Tmobile from 4G to LTE and back. Verizon on this device is 3G only. This is a good combination for me because Verizon data in West Michigan can be mud and Tmobile is solid. Verizon is work, Tmobile is personal. Now I can carry 1 phone finally. Can't beat the price, trying to convince the wife to dump the Note 7 before it combusts. She is on tmobile with jump on demand which is fine but 11 months of leasing pays for the OnePlus 3. If you ask me it is the current golden nugget for price and performance.
This is an important feature to some but it seems no one ever mentions it. Are both sims active at once, receiving calls and texts on both, or do you have to switch Active SIM and Standby SIM in the UI? Can both slots access LTE Data or just one slot, as is much more common?
That's what I want in a phone, support for Both a Tmo and ATT sim that can Both get LTE data, even if you have to switch the active data connection manually. Tmo is much faster in some areas and ATT in others, so I want to be able to switch active data on the fly.
To me that is even more important than being able to receive calls on both lines.
over in the "Microsoft Pushes New Windows 10 Preview " discussion:
Phonescoop review of Lumia 950 & 950 XL?
Speaking of Windows 10 Mobile and the recently-introduced 950 & XL, it seems to me rather conspicuous by its absence is Phonescoop's usual in-depth review of either or both of those devices. Most other websites published their reports days ago. AM I missing something here?
over in the "LG Lancet Drops Windows Phone for Android" discussion:
Because Verizon is Anti-Windows
No surprise that VZ is promoting the Lancet with Android rather than Windows, because it is obvious that VZ is anti-Windows (or perhaps anti-Microsoft).
Just two days ago (Oct. 16, 2015) I was in the local corporate-owned Verizon store, and the paltry display for Windows-based phones is a two-phone counter at the back of the store, no banners or anything, so I had to search them out. When I asked the sales person if they had, or would soon have, the new Lumia 950 phones he said "Mmm...no. Verizon doesn't like Windows."
