If the area you are in has it, it's fine. I live in bum fuck area so LTE is non existent . When I travel to larger towns, it works just fine but I'm not a data hog either.

I have tmobile and mainly in dfw area. I like a few of the Chinese phones I've been looking up but the pixel 2 everyone is talking about looks pretty good too.

Reviews are so easily manipulated that I would be Leary to take them at full faith.

Wife has a Razer and JR has a 1+5t. They both seem to like them.

I agree. I'm mainly going off of reddit posts and most seem to be informative. I just bought a honor 7x. Should be in tomorrow.

I'm pretty pumped for the S9. I was going to buy a camera for the sole purpose of 1,000 fps video but I might as well get a phone with it.

I just picked up an LG V30 today. Could no longer stand Apple, decided to give Android a chance. Hope the switch over is not too frustrating. Any tips from those who have made the switchover?

Yes, go with the Samsung options instead.

This.
