    Hi all!

    For T-Mobile users I'm curious which network type you're using. Are you using the global setting (Default) or have you switched to a more specific setting? If you switched which one? GSM/WCDMA/LTE?

    Thanks all!

    I'm on TMO and just leave it on the highest band setting. I've not tried anything else yet. I'm getting great reception so far.

    Check my post here for how mine is set: https://forums.androidcentral.com/sh...=1#post5953047

    Just using whatever the default setting is. Haven't bothered to change it as I have no issues so far.

    On Oreo Beta 3 using T-Mobile, what are people setting the 'Preferred network type' to be? On my Pixel 2 it is set to LTE which is the recommended one. On the Essential Phone, there are lots of options, I'm debating between Global, 4G/LTE or just LTE.

    Any insight?

    I had it on 4g/LTE for a while and I noticed that it jumped a lot from LTE to 4G so recently I decided to just let it on LTE and match my Pixel 2 XL settings and just like my Pixel it keeps the LTE signal most of the time, at least when I've checked, my wife is currently using the Essential add her daily driver Si she will let me know soon if she gets signal issues this way.

    Thanks for the response. Keep me posted on how it does with just LTE has the preferred network. I am definitely thinking of going the same route and matching the essential phone to my pixel 2
