In this MASSIVE tutorial, I will be showing you how to root the LG V20, this root guide is specifically for the AT&T H910, Sprint LS997, Verizon VS995, and Korean F800L models ONLY! If you do not have one of these models, please DO NOT FOLLOW THIS TUTORIAL! For T-Mobile and other variants, check this page on XDA.
Here’s a 4G LTE speed test of AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, and Verizon in Manhattan, New York.
If you are thinking about switching carriers, here’s my recommendation and thoughts on the best network in New York City:
T-Mobile – Best overall speeds/value especially if you can get their unlimited plan. I am paying $100/month for 2 lines unlimited.
As a person who have traveled to more than 6 different countries in the last 6 months, I can tell you which U.S. carriers are the best for getting data and voice overseas.
Before I begin, I have service on all 4 major U.S. networks including AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Sprint. I also have an account with Google’s new Project Fi. Why so many networks? That’s what I do for a living, test all the networks and find the best for you guys and I am always “high” on Android.
Here’s another speed test update I did while I was over at my parent’s house in Pleasanton, California.
My current favorite networks:
#1 – T-Mobile – They have done the best of upgrading towers recently. I am getting full 4G LTE in most places in SF Bay Area. I used to get Edge in my parent’s house, now I get both 4G LTE and HSPA+!
America is probably one of the best places to live in my opinion (why I live here) but also worst place to get wifi tether working, especially on the four major carriers like AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, and Verizon.
Most countries around the world other than the U.S. have free WiFi Tether included as part of your data plan, meaning you do not have to worry about locked WiFi Tether hotspot.
Well, since I am here in Los Angeles for the week, I figure to do a 4G speed test on all U.S. major networks including AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, and Verizon.
Los Angeles gets pretty good 4G LTE coverage for all the four networks, it seems the biggest difference is with the download and upload speeds.
For those of you wondering which network has the fastest 4G LTE in Las Vegas, Nevada, I did a speed test on The Strip to show you which network has the fastest speed.
For this speed test, I chose The Strip as I got full bars on most of the carriers and also a great test location since many of you who visit Vegas will stay there.
Here’s a quick comparison video of international HTC One X versus AT&T HTC One XL using Quadrant and Antutu benchmarks.
If you look carefully, in both tests the quad-core HTC One X scores much higher in CPU ratings (30-50%). Also notice that the quad-core One X finishes both tests a bit earlier than the HTC One XL.
Well, I finally got my hands on the AT&T version of HTC One X, here’s me unboxing it!
I got mine from Amazon for just $149, $50 cheaper than getting it straight from AT&T. Since I didn’t want to buy it outright and pay full price, I converted my plan to family plan and added the new phone, which works out to be around $30/month extra. You can also get the Gerber Multi-tool in the video here.
In this video, we go in-depth which U.S. carrier has the best 4G plan.
4G LTE is without a doubt the fastest 4G network with best coverage but is it right for you?
With 2-3GB 4G LTE plan, you are going to run out of bandwidth very quickly if you watch 2-3 hours of Netflix or 5-6 hours of Pandora. After that, you do have the choice of paying $10 per extra gigabyte or even if you have unlimited, you will most likely be throttled by carriers.
