    I love the phone, love the 90hz refresh rate. Battery life too early to say. But yes, don't expect a big difference with the first Stage of 5G deployed, 600mhz. For me it has been no difference, have it at home. Speed is still very slow, my games lag. I only got the phone to test it out and cause I got bored of the S10+. I am in Houston TX, and tomorrow I will drive to Waco TX, 3 hours away, and I'll definitely test the rural areas. Beautiful phone regardless.

    PS, you get a nice free carbon fiber case with the phone, in the box.Switched from the S10+ to OP7T Pro 5G T-Mo-fb_img_1575789668718.jpegSwitched from the S10+ to OP7T Pro 5G T-Mo-screenshot_20191207-200640.jpeg

    If T-Mobile had one in stock yesterday I would have bought it. I went on the fence between the Pixel 4XL and the McLaren and so I ended up getting the Pixel and I love it. That McLaren was amazing though and I would have probably loved it equally.

    I keep seeing people post 5g speeds that low. When I tested in a store the speeds were closer to 100. Guest the time of day and network congestion also played a factor.

    So, I read that the McLaren edition (at least the international version) comes pre-installed with a screen protector. Can you confirm?

    Thanks for the update. As for battery life, my experience with Android is the first couple of days are not a good predictor for battery life due to apps loading and the OS calibrating itself. Let us know how it's behaving in about 5 days.

    Curious - I received my order McLaren Friday but didn't get a carbon fiber case in the box. Did you receive one from T-Mobile?

    I believe you should gave gotten one. Based on what I've seen, it's kind of hidden within the main box at the bottom. kind of nested within the main box. Check out this un-boxing video about 2:50 in.

    Found it! That's a nice surprise! Called T-Mobile and they said it didn't come with a case. Go Figure! I just hope the battery settles down.

    Interesting, OnePlus has McLaren, Huawei Porsche. Wonder what Samsung will have if and when they jump into the milking band wagon? Anyone hazard a guess?

    I didn't know it had to be a car. I just know they have a Star Wars version Note 10+ now.

    For some reason I can't post pictures but go to the Samsung Shop website or Best Buy. This is from Best Buy. I would love to have ordered it. But $1,300 is a little strong for my wallet this close to Christmas.

    $1300, too much.

    Thanks, got the phone and noticed it doesn't. I ordered one but it hasn't arrived yet. TBH, I'm reluctant to put one on. Seems people are having issues with the fingerprint scanner after installing screen protectors. Has anyone installed a screen protector that plays nice with the McLaren fingerprint scanner?

    First off, I use iPhone as my daily driver on t mobile. I have a extra line I got a few years back and bought a McLaren off of swappa to try out the 5G. I also had the OG OnePlus One when it came out. Nice phone! Cannot judge battery life cause I am not using it full time.

    Did a speed test the first day (Dec 26) and get 176 down and 52 up. Not bad! In Plano area of DFW.

    Definitely hidden. The used one I bought from swap came with two cases and the one in the bottom of the box it comes in was unused.

    My used mclaren came with a glass screen protector installed and I cannot get the fingerprint scanner to work at all. Using the face id. the little selfie camera popping up is kinda cool.
