Let's hope that they're not TOOOO much into that sort of thing,or we all lose........

Things should start picking up once the takeover deal is finalized.

Too bad not all CDMA phones cannot use voice & data simultaneously on 3G (like the SGS III),which makes a big difference in the waiting game for LTE.

Just a quick note...

The HTC Evo 4G LTE also does allow you to use voice and data simultaneously. I was very surprised by this when I got the phone.

It still doesn't make up for the abysmal data speeds in my area...

EVO LTE, SGS3, and LG Viper are all SVDO enabled. However, the LG Optimus G is only SVLTE enabled. (On Sprint, of course).

I was aware of the EVOLTE having this capability,but not the LG VIPER.
The more the merrier,which leads me to ask this:

From what I've read the HTC THUNDERBOLT has this capability as well,sooooooo.........

WHY ON EARTH DOESN'T EVERY ANDROID HAVE THIS CAPABILITY?

Without knowing all the details about network,etc.....,I'd agree w/this,but.....

Seems there are at least three manufacturers that can build phones w/3G voice-data simultaneous capability,working on at least two CDMA networks,so,exclusivity to a manufacturer or carrier/network doesn't appear to be a barrier.

Why this feature isn't more wide-spread just doesn't add up & would make a great selling point.Actually,it shouldn't be a selling point & should be a feature on any ANDROID released from here on out,whether it be an entry-level phone or a flagship model.

there is a chip that enables it.. to do SVDO.

it must cost more for that chip.. and the chip may require more and better radios.
this all adds up to more costs...

some devices cut corners.. to keep it at a price point.

Well yeah,everything that goes into producing a phone has a cost,no doubt.I just don't see where the costs to be so prohibitive to not have such a feature as standard equipment.

Again,this would be a great opportunity for any of the manufacturers to step up & have a marketing edge over the competition.

SVDO/SVLTE isn't something that has been marketed though. I guess manufacturers don't really see it as something that important. AFAIK, AT&T boasts about having this feature set (and they are the only one to do so).

True,true.It's not a flashy marketing feature like FFC's,13MP cameras,NFC,etc......

Perhaps w/4G LTE being rolled out to the masses (eventually),this may be the cost-cutting that you mentioned that makes the most sense & seen as a redundancy by the manufacturers & an unwanted burden/strain on existing 3G infrastructure by the carriers.

Exactly. I assume the idea is to market to the masses, and the majority. The majority aren't folks like you and I. We're the teeny weenie minority.

So true.Too bad for them,must be a sad life......

Speaking of those polar opposites:

I know a guy who has had a GNEX for 3+ months & has yet to get a GOOGLE account.

While the phone could be a useful tool w/o the GOOGLENESS w/a little bit of work & time,this guy hasn't a clue as to what he has,or,what it could be.
Made me green w/envy as I awaited patiently for ICS w/the PHOTON (&we all know how that story ended)...........

That just makes no sense to me at all. You lose out on so much functionality due to not having the Google account attached. I'm sure you plead your case to him to smarten up a bit.

I tried,believe me.The only reason he's got the G-NEX is SPRINT had a $0 sale on it @ the time.Otherwise,he'd probably be in some unbranded feature phone.

He really has no idea what the phones capabilities hold & insists on learning it all "someday" w/the help of a "G-NEX FOR DUMMIES" book.

He's actually a nice person,but,appears to have too much pride to ask anyone for help with his phone.
My 1st suggestion to him months ago was to give A/F a look.I think I'll bring up the A/F topic to him again in casual conversation the next time I see the guy after the holidays.Perhaps after a few months of having the phone & no doubt a measure of frustration that he may be experiencing,he'll be ready to drop in to A/F & get some guidance.

I'll even try to place a bookmark shortcut on his home screen to facilitate things.

I'd place a PHANDROID shortcut,but,as I mentioned,he has no access to the GOOGLE PLAY STORE until he gets a GOOGLE account.

I didn't even realize that Sprint is still in the process of finalizing the Soft Bank deal, so it's currently in the Spank Later Network stage vs. the Spank Now Network

Sprint now has 3 million LTE subscribers, revenues rise to $9 billion

Well the DoJ the put the brakes on the deal, at least temporarily. Sprint does business with the government and military. Plus anytime a foreign company makes a play for a utility, they need to take a look at it to make sure everything is kosher I guess.

Really more regulatory red tape than anything else. It will happen, Sprint and Softbank just need to jump through all the hoops first.

I remember EarlyMon and I discussing the potential Softbank phones that could eventually make their way over here, and looks like the first Sharp phone finally has (although mid-tier offering)

Sharp Aquos Crystal officially announced for Sprint

The form factor is really beautiful. I wonder if the Aquos Crystal X is coming with its 5.5 inch screen. Sharp seems to have gotten the edge-to-edge thing down, so maybe the 5.5 version would be even smaller than the G3? Might just be a contender, if so.

From this pic, it looks like the Crystal X is very close in size to the G3

i like it.. very sexy.

but a few concerns:
- I have a NOTE3.. and I still have some issues accidently touching the screen when view media.
- taking my phone out of my pocket and trying not to touch the screen .. might activate something.
- the camera is at the bottom.. how will that look and feel?
- the bottom bezel is very big.. I wonder if it is about the same size as... the NOTE3's top and bottom combined? if so.. I think I prefer the even top and bottom split
- where is the ear speaker?

All good questions. But, supposedly the x isn't coming here, but gives hope for the future.

Full length video posted in the Aquos section here.

The night shot and screen speaker are awesome.

As for the X, I wouldn't doubt seeing that coming to Sprint as well by years end.

If the Crystal X comes to the US with an upgrade to the 805, I might just consider losing the S-Pen. As of right now, the Note 4 rumors haven't peaked my interest enough to ditch the Note 3. A 5.5 screen that's close to the size of the G2...that really intrigues me a lot and could be worthy of ditching my beloved S-Pen.

Right Now I have the Galaxy Mega and I love the big screen, but I miss the S-Pen of the Note Series. I didn't get the Note 3 (as much as I wanted to) mainly because it was not Tri-Band on Sprint. The Mega was tri-band so I got it. I love the speeds I get on it here in NYC.

I most probably will get the Note 4 since it will be tri-Band and give up the Mega, but I also will give up my Netgear hotspot and just use the hotspot on the phone. In its place I might just get the Aquos as a backup phone.

Then again, with the possibility of the X coming by years end, I just might hold up on that decision.
