You can't be serious!
I know the 615 is in a couple of Mid-range phones but how much better can the 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 be on a "flagship"???????????
The start of something wonderful...
Risky not to use a phone with 3G (right now)
Even though Verizon has overlaid their entire network with LTE, LTE and CDMA still have different propagation and load patterns such that I still drop into 3G on my devices. Perhaps it'd be better in a few cases if it tried to hold onto the weaker LTE signal, but having that backup is still incredibly useful when the LTE signal is too weak to work effectively.
I hope Verizon can start repurposing 3G spectrum more aggressively in the upcoming years so that this doesn't remain true for much longer.
First, this is not a phone that Verizon will be selling directly...
