I hear ya bud. On a positive note, when I need LTE I can use it. Sprint unfortunately is lacking in some places and that will help on camping trip and what not so my phone won't have to be hotspot the whole time.
Yea only $100 off didn't sway me either that's why I paid 850 for no contract and $40/month to month for 4GB...it's potentially a positive thing. Obviously I will have to monitor my usage on 4lte but I'll at least have that as an option. The chipset might be minor to some and to that I say kudos, but for me, recharging and using it is key as well as how long it takes to recharge if you shut it off.
Well I have 14 days to test it if I change.my mind
Thanks for your responses
