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.
For those of you who haven’t heard, the latest Motorola Moto X Pure Android smartphone is an “all-carrier” phone that has GSM and CDMA radios to support all AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, and Verizon networks. Not only that, the Moto X Pure also has 4G LTE bands for all carriers, meaning you will be able to use it on any U.S. carrier.
For those of you with a Sprint Galaxy phone like the Galaxy S5, Galaxy S4, Galaxy S3, or the Note 3, did you know you can also enjoy more custom ROMs by installing Verizon custom ROMs?
We’ve always thought this process took a bit of coding and porting from Verizon ROMs to Sprint ROMs but in my recent findings show that you can actually get Verizon ROMs working on Sprint Galaxy phones fairly easily by adding APN and using 3rd-party SMS app to get MMS send working.
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.
I was pretty happy when I got my HTC Evo 4G LTE yesterday. It was 5 days late of official launch date of 19th but I didn’t mind since it wasn’t Sprint’s fault rather Apple’s injunction against HTC.
Well, today I got another surprise in the mail, Sprint is sending free cases to Evo 4G LTE owners who pre-ordered their phone!
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.
