Sometimes we tend to take our technology for granted and assume that it should just work. However, it isn’t always the case as researchers have recently found out. According to a report out of South Korea (via Engadget), it seems that at least 36 new security flaws have been discovered within LTE.
One of the problems that early iPhone Xs owners have been reporting is poor reception issues. While tests have found that the LTE speeds on the new iPhones have improved thanks to the new radios, there are some who can’t seem to take full advantage of that. However it seems that Apple is aware of the issue and are reaching out to customers.
There have been reports that suggests that Apple’s new iPhones will feature faster LTE speeds thanks to the use of new radios which will help the new iPhones get as much out of their connection as possible. For those who actually want to see those speeds themselves, the folks at iClarified have put together a video that shows the new iPhones in action.
When we shop for a new smartphone, we look at the size of its display, resolution, processor, RAM, camera, and so on. Most of the time we take it for granted that WiFi and LTE connectivity options are provided, although that being said, it should be pointed out that not all WiFi and LTE connections were made equal, and that hardware can affect things like speed.
While most of us might think of smartwatches and activity trackers as devices aimed more at adults, the reality of today is that kids are just as tech-ed up as most adults, with parents relying heavily on smartphones and tablets to help entertain and educate their children. This is why it’s not surprising that we’re seeing smartwatches and wearables designed for kids as well.
When the new iPhones were announced, Apple touted a bunch of new features and improvements that they were making to the phones. However they did not cover everything since it would take too much time, and one of those improvements they did not cover was improvements to LTE speeds.
While on the surface and on paper, most flagship phones these days seem identical, there are underlying differences that can set phones apart from each other in ways that you might not even realize. Recently a test published by PC Mag has revealed that when it comes to LTE speeds on our smartphones, the Pixel 2 could be worth considering.
In some parts of the world, the minute your train goes underground, getting cell service might be tricky, let alone internet. However over in South Korea, it’s a very different story because Samsung will be equipping some of the country’s high-speed trains with some high-speed internet.
Apple’s iPhones currently do not support gigabit download speeds, or rather to ensure a uniform experience across iPhones, Apple has capped the speeds on iPhones using Qualcomm’s modems to match those of Intel’s. For those who are wondering what’s the difference, a video uploaded by Booredatwork.com on YouTube demonstrates the differences.
The country’s third largest mobile carrier today announced that it has officially fired up its Extended Range LTE network in the San Francisco Bay Area. The 700 MHz low band spectrum powered LTE network carries signals farther and deeper indoors than ever before, meaning that users in the Bay Area will now enjoy better indoor LTE coverage.
Uber and AT&T have reached a deal which will see college football games being streamed to a select number of Chevrolet Tahoe SUVs in Detroit, Nashville, Houston and Atlanta. There will be tablets mounted in the back of the Tahoe’s headrests, they will be running AT&T’s U-verse app that’s connected to 4G LTE, passengers will use wireless headphones to listen to the commentary.
As you might have heard yesterday according to a T-Mobile rep, Band 12 LTE on the Nexus 5X and the Nexus 6P aren’t enabled in the handsets, despite the fact that the hardware is there. This is apparently due to T-Mobile wanting OEMs to get their phones certified for VoLTE use before supporting them.Now the good news is that if you were wondering if Google would ever get around to […]
Thinking about picking up the Nexus 5X or the Nexus 6P for yourself? Why not? It is pretty affordable after all and comes with some pretty amazing specs, and not to mention the Nexus 6P’s camera which is now ranked the second best according to the folks at DxOMark. However if you are planning on getting it on T-Mobile, there is a catch.When asked if the new Nexus handsets will […]
I suppose there is a certain degree of merit when it comes to the kind of superlative in which one describes a particular handset or device, and “thinnest” would often be seen as a “strength”, or a positive pull factor, in this particular case. Well, BLU’s Vivo Air LTE has laid claim to being the thinnest 4G LTE smartphone in the US, measuring a mere 5.1mm thin. I don’t know […]
When you start to hear more and more rumors getting around concerning an upcoming device, you know for sure that there will be said device in the pipeline – and eventually released, of course. Having said that, the iPhone 6s should never have been a doubt at all, especially when one takes into consideration how the iPhone hierarchy all boils down to a model with an “s” suffix before the […]
Having unlimited LTE data is great because what this means is that users can go ahead and download as many things as they’d like, watch as many videos as they want, and so on without having to worry about reaching a data cap. Now not every user is so opportunistic but there are some who rely on their phones for all their internet needs, which is why carriers such as […]
Magenta users on the East Coast are facing troubles accessing the carrier’s 4G LTE network. Multiple reports have come in today from T-Mobile users that the East Coast is suffering from yet another LTE outage. Concentrated areas reportedly include New Jersey, Philadelphia, Virginia Beach and Washington D.C. It doesn’t seem to be as drastic as the recent North East outage but the overall region appears to only have limited LTE coverage […]
When it comes to spending money, we would more often than not want to look into obtaining the best bang for our hard earned buck. After all, times are hard these days, and it is always good to be prudent so that we are able to stretch our finances further than ever before. Those who are on the lookout for an LTE-enabled handset might have many choices to choose from, […]
Samsung intends to embark upon a “world’s first” yet again – this time around, introducing the very first LTE Advanced tri-band carrier aggregation smartphone in the whole world. In fact, this spanking new technology is capable of delivering download speeds of up to 300Mbps, which is four times faster compared to LTE services – theoretically speaking, of course, so do not expect to enjoy 300Mbps speeds all the time.
Mission Complete: Qualcomm, EE & Huawei Achieve LTE Category 9 Carrier Aggregation Interoperability Testing
Qualcomm Technologies alongside EE and Huawei have just announced that their collaboration has resulted in a successful outing where inter-company interoperability testing of LTE Category 9 connectivity is concerned, achieving a 3-carrier downlink aggregation and download speeds of up to 410 Mbps – of course, one ought to take note that such figures, and subsequent ones, were provided and most probably achieved under optimal conditions; which means that real life […]
