    I've tried GV/Groove and Vonage in the past on several devices (Wi-Fi and HSPA) and have always had terrible results, delay being the biggest problem.
    I just made a Vonage call on LTE with my i717 and actually had a real phone conversation. I think there was still a very slight delay but it was almost unnoticeable. This is good news for me, especially as I don't have the best LTE reception.

    I also notice incredible improvement with LTE over HSPA. The quicker ping time and faster upload speeds really help.

    LTE will do a better job with all VoIP. This is because LTE has higher upload speeds and lower latency. With HSPA+, it is the latency (the delay) that hurts the sound quality of VoIP calls.

    Huge difference on my GNote LTE vs my HTC Amaze or my wife's GNex. I'm using Spare Phone or Viber (when calling my wife)
