Random question...Did the Epic have a screen protector on?

Cool to see, thanks!

How have you guys that made the switch noticed the differences in cell strength and battery life? Really contemplating on switching over, just wondering how it compares to our phone. Its my only two gripes about the E4GT. I dont get service anywhere inside.

Basically this thread can be merged with this thread

[Article] Sprint's network sucks (nothing that wasn't known before)

On a serious note, the speeds were about the same on 3g and wifi.

Nexus had slightly faster uploads on 3g/wifi. E4GT had slightly faster download avg on 3g. They are roughly tied for download on wifi. None of the numbers were very impressive, but that is the fault of the network rather than the phone.

Further supports my decision to stick with the E4GT for now. I need to be blown away in order to even contemplate switching.

Thanks to qbking for the video and sfhub for the recap.

Debatable.

While we will always take better download speeds, upload is used when browsing the web etc as well so having a better balance between them could give better real world usage results.

See I guess I'm one of the lucky ones, I never seem to struggle with my data connection unless I'm just in the middle of the boondocks (and in Alabama, that could be anywhere lol) and typically at that point I'm driving, not trying to browse the web. Around town and the cities where my family lives and I visit often I always get a quick connection so, again, just not enough of a difference for me. But for others it might be more than enough.

The overall specs of the Nexus just don't seem like a huge step up from the E4GT, not nearly enough for me to jump on it without waiting to see what else might be in store in the nearish future (SGSIII).
