And because that poll didn't include the choice - "There is no best, only the best for you" - I voted to tie the One with the SGS4. I'd have done the same in the other direction.

So - new Sprint phone rumors...

Let's please try to keep focused, spin out new threads as needed, easy to do after the fact - this thread gets hits on Google search - a lot.

Moto what is the real question. X will likely be sold through Play Store only.

Bold move.

The Nexus has picked up sales from before, but not giving people a chance to hold one couldn't move numbers like a broad distribution network, could it?

Granted, I only base my theory off of the details of the rumor that surfaced recently. The whole customization at checkout concept.

maybe the X will be sold on the playstore and 1 big retailer (like Bestbuy).

it would be great if sold at BB without any carrier ties... but similar to the new Tmobile plan. $99 down with monthly payments for 20 months ($20-30)... of course carriers have to have a service plan like Tmobile. and billed through the carrier.

example: Sprint. instead of the $79 unlimited. if you get an X.. then no contract at $59/month unlimited. $59sprint + $20(phone) = $79 billed through sprint.

I've got one foot out the door,headed to T-MOBILE,as soon as the HTC ONE is available.Nothing short of LTE lighting up in my area will keep me w/SPRINT.

Their customer service,in-store/on-line & on the phone,has been nothing short of EXCELLENT,& I applaud each & every individual who I've dealt with.

However,network quality just isn't there,at least where I need it most,at work & home.

Now that T-MOBILE has a sensibly priced plan,no contracts & good service coverage where I need it most,obligating to another 2 yrs. w/SPRINT just doesn't make sense.

Would have made the move myself, if it weren't for coverage at my house.

I'm right on the fringes of good coverage w/SPRINT @ home, right between two towers; & roaming @ work, which is still well within SPRINT's coverage map.

Phone call quality is fine, but, data is the sore spot.

From what I've read on S4GRU,NV has begun in my area & I have noticed improvements in parts of town, just frustratingly not where I need it to benefit me.

Same source also suspects LTE is going to be implemented ahead of schedule in my area,basically since the team was already in the area performing a lot of unscheduled maintenance, might as well finish the job while they're here.

So basically, if SPRINT flips LTE on by the end of APRIL, perhaps I'll reconsider & stay. Otherwise, looking forward to the HTC ONE, & even looking forward to what MOTOROLA has in store.

Speaking of, (sorry for the off-topic drift), anyone seen/heard pricing for the S4 w/SPRINT?

AT&T has just announced contract pricing @ $249.

Not yet, but if history serves me correctly, Sprint is typically the front runner for release in the US (at least based on S3 release).

I have my eye on T-Mobile as well. I am also wondering about the pricing for the S4 with Sprint since AT&T has it for $249. Wonder why they are starting the price at $249. Also will Sprint get the 32GB version like they did the S3?

It is possible that even if they do sell the Motorola X through the Play Store like they did with the Nexus 4 that T-Mobile would sell them in their stores. I went into a T-Mobile store to look at a Nexus 4 and I really liked it. I almost forgot it had no removable battery or SD card slot. So people maybe able to find a Motorola X to get their hands on it. But if the rumors are true that a person can order the phone the way they want it, I don't think you can find that in a store.

S4 for Sprint passed through FCC with global roaming.

Now if the S4 comes with a 32GB version, I'm going to have to sell my S3. Do you think the S4 will have a SIM slot?

Likely embedded. Part of me wants to say that Sprint made an announcement that they would no longer have unlocked SIM card slots on their future world phones. They started off on the Photon Q, I believe.

That's what I figured. That is one reason I will not sell my Photon 4G.

I wouldn't have either, if it weren't for the buy back price I was getting on it. That's the only reason I sold it back to Best Buy.

Would be nice if it had sim slot. Somebody correct me if I'm wrong but does Verizon offer a sim slot on the I5?

Thought I read something about that awhile back.

I believe it does have a SIM card slot. There was something I read about it that had to do with the FCC.

I think the Chinese variant would definitely help HTC turn things around, if it were offered in the US:
Chinese HTC One variant features removable back cover, dual-SIMs, and microSD slot

I agree. This is something Sprint should have done. While I am not favor of phones with a non removable battery, a SD card slot on this phone would have made me think twice. I really like the build of this phone.

I wouldn't want Sprint to do that because I actually like the idea of all US carrier versions being identical with the exception of network.

But as long as the phone has the same physical dimensions on the outside, that's the main thing that's important when it comes to all US carrier versions being identical.

Realistically, even though the S3 and Note 2 physically have the same dimensions across all US carriers, the internals are still different across all the US carriers because they all use different radios and frequencies.

I personally wish each time a new phone came out, Sprint would not only be the 1st to launch it but also have top notch internals then what the other carriers will offer.
Or pull an exclusive like AT&T so often likes to do.

I'm sure if Sprint had the money they would do more exclusives. But I don't really like exclusives that change the appearance of the phone. Sprint really needs to get their network up and running right. But that is a whole other topic. I really like the look of the HTC ONE. As long as Sprint offers the 32GB version they will be in good shape.

I agree with you regarding appearance changes. My thinking is more in line with max internal storage. Maybe offer the 64GB version at 16GB price.

I think its time to do away with 8GB and 16GB phones. The apps are getting bigger in size and we need more internal memory. I had to take my games of my phone because they were taking up too much space.

Pre-Order for the HTC ONE starts tomorrow (4/5/13):

HTC One: The New HTC Phone from Sprint

HTC - One 4G Mobile Phone - Silver (Sprint) - AP801CWH

But,the AT&T 64GB exclusive is rumored to be for a limited time.

I'd sit tight @ first if you think you'll have a bit of buyer's remorse should a SPRINT 64GB version become available @ later date.

Could it be activated any other way or is international the only option?

Also does "Sammy" know when it'll launch in the US?

I don't know, Sprint doesn't traditionally carry a lot high end Motorola stuff, at least lately.

Did if any of you see this on Engadget? Looks like a pretty large phone headed to Sprint. I haven't read any Note 3 rumors lately so I can only assume this is something different. Possibly a new WP8 device?

First high end offering was photon 2 years ago because of Verizon exclusivity with Motorola in prior years.

Too small of dimensions (physical height is a little over 5 inches) to be note 3. I suspect mid range.

I actually mentioned the L500 back a few pages, I found it in the bluetooth sig search back in December. Judging from the model number, it's mid range. S3 was L710, S4 is L720. The Note II was L900.

Tommy!...I knew I saw it somewhere. I shouldn't even have googled the model number, just search this great thread (considering how many peeps we have on the lookout all the time).

I'm curious to know if the Note 8 has the phone parts in it but just turned off or if it just doesn't have them at all.
Sucks that it doesn't though.

It doesn't? I've heard from sources that it's got the parts for it to be a phone. Gigantic phone at that

I may very well be wrong too

Thought I read something about that awhile back.
4s and The 5 both have sim slots on the sprint version fwiw....

Photon q and the note 2 were embedded I believe. I noticed recently a few of the direct connect devices have sim cards as well

Ahh okay it's been like a month since I've heard anything about the device.

Kinda silly for essentially an 8" tab to have phone functions.

Imagine the looks you'd get in public talking on the bohemeth

Think Bluetooth.

HTC came out with a little bluetooth handset in Taiwan recently that only make calls (as I remember).

Imagine the tablet in a bag, briefcase or just laying nearby and a little, eensy handset for just calling.

Anyway, it's dreaming.

Even if we could get the radios switched on, I don't see how one could get it activated on Sprint without committing 8 kinds of fraud, unless I'm missing something.

I remember that. Maybe now people outside of Taiwan can get past the TEE-HEE stage & see how useful such a device (phone for your phone, if you will) could be.

The SMART CONTROLLER from MOTOROLA would serve this purpose in the same manner, though it doesn't have a dialpad. (Got one myself, works great).

^ This.

Which is why i get more and more pissed at these manufacturers and carriers screwing things up.

The Note 8 would be perfect if it had the phone capabilities turned on. Although I've read that a 4G version is coming. But $50 more than an iPad Mini is not the way to go if you ask me on the Wifi version.

I love my Note 10.1 and its only $50 more than the Note 8 Wifi, but I admit its a full size tablet and may not be the best to lug around all the time. The Note 8 is right since it has a bigger screen and is more portable. My Note 2 is also awesome but I wouldn't mind a bigger screen but not too big like the Note 10.1

Then you get into the crap these outfits do with the memory. Enough of this 16GB crap. They are marketing these things for multimedia use and as such we will consume more and more media, be it videos, apps etc. Make 32GB the minimum, include a sd card and allow us the ability to store apps on the sd card. The cloud is okay, but there are times I don't want to put or wait for things in the cloud.

Couldn't you just use a Google Voice number with the Note 8? It should work over WiFi.
