    Default Samsung Galaxy S4 and XLTE

    According to Droid Life , the S4 is XLTE compatible. However, it appears that the S4 is not on the list of devices that can access XLTE.

    Why? Is VZ trying to "encourage" us to upgrade devices?

    The S4 and S4 Mini are both on this list: These Android devices take advantage of Verizon XLTE | Android Central

    And it is in the press release here:

    Nearly all of the devices Verizon Wireless sells, including the newest DROID devices, Samsung Galaxy S4, S5 and Note 3, and the iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s, are XLTE Ready when purchased. Today, more than 35 percent of all devices operating on the Verizon Wireless network can take direct advantage of the added capacity that AWS provides.

    If you live in one of the Roll Out Cities, please post back and let us know if XLTE is worthy of all the hype.

    I am in a "roll out" city, but only getting d/l of 1.89Mbps and u/l 2.75 (via OOKLA Speedtest, just now). Thats HORRIBLE!

    I reran it and got 9.33 down and 2.62 up.

    If you aren't on a plan with unlimited data, be aware that you can use up a good bit of data running speed tests.

    But are you on an xlte tower? And does your phone have the latest update? Not all towers in the rollout cities have xlte.

    I compared my wife's S4 and my mother RAZR Maxx HD side by side at the same time the S4 downloaded about 30% faster but the odd thing is that the RAZR went up 12% than the S4. I ran 10 tests over an hour and the results held every time. I want to do it again in a couple of days to see if I can get different results. Well keep you posted.

    Thanks for all the information. I don't live in a Roll Out city, but it'll get here soon enough.

    If this post looks familiar, I posted it in the wrong thread first. I practice idiocy regularly.
