This roughly translates to $504, which is a remarkable price for a flagship grade offering. There’s no word on when carriers like Verizon and T-Mobile will hop on board, but for now, it seems like Sprint...

During the second half of last year, the network monitor company RootMetrics ran tests on all four major carriers to test call quality, text message quality, and data speeds. According to their results, despite the commonly-held theory, Sprint’s network (in certain aspects) is not as bad as people think. In order to test all the major carrier’s networks, RootMetrics bought off-the-shelf devices from their carriers and drove about 293,000 miles around the US. The specific areas the tests focused on were reliability, speed...
