    Official LG G2 FCC filing: https://apps.fcc.gov/oetcf/eas/repo...Frame=N&application_id=521495&fcc_id=ZNFLS980

    Breaking it down further:
    https://apps.fcc.gov/eas/GetApplicationAttachment.html?id=2020064
    You can see LTE bands 25, 26, 41 mentioned. Incidentally, we also know that it will have NFC.

    https://apps.fcc.gov/eas/GetApplicationAttachment.html?id=2020182
    Scroll to page 5 and see where the antennas are. Page 6 for the front with dimensions listed.
    Scroll to page 10. You can see the different bands being tested. LTE 26 (800 MHz). LTE 25 (1900 MHz). LTE 41 (2500 Mhz).

    https://apps.fcc.gov/eas/GetApplicationAttachment.html?id=2020184
    Scroll to page 5 and see the LTE and Wifi frequencies being tested.

    https://apps.fcc.gov/eas/GetApplicationAttachment.html?id=2020186
    Page 1.

    It is way too technical for me...but it is tri-band LTE: band 25 LTE 1900 + band 26 LTE 800 + band 41 TD-LTE 2600. One notable caveat is that it supports neither SVDO nor SVLTE.

    It looks like LG G2 is my next phone. What we know so far:

    - S800 chip, which is top dog for 2013...most powerful CPU and GPU to date
    - 5.2" LCD screen with minimal (edge-to-edge) bezel and very bright (best among all displays)
    - Very thin with volume and power buttons on the back
    - 13MP camera with optical image stabilization
    - Removable plastic back
    - Nano-SIM slot, micro-SD, and removable 2,610mAh battery
    - Sprint tri-band LTE compatible

    More info on Aug 7. I cannot wait!! :smokingsomb:

    And it comes to Sprint 2 months after the other carriers. Sprint is really starting to look pathetic. And by start I mean they are, and have been.

    It does seem like they're a bit late to the game. Especially when the Nexus 5 may be a rival on pretty much all but vzw. That could make it a no brainer for some. Similar specs, no bloat, guaranteed unlock and root, killer dev community guaranteed. Uh yeah, I'll trade my G2 for that. Oh wait, I'm on vzw. :D

    Vicious cycle this whole who's carrier sucks the most at any given point and time in space gig.

    I 100% guarantee Sprint is worse. At least you have a usable network and data, more than I can say about Sprint. Even though Verizon is limited with phones, software, and updates etc.

    That was LGs decision not Sprint from what I gather. Something about triband
