Lg Esteem 4g Data Speeds Of Metro Sufficient To Stream Music ?

Is the 4g speeds of metro sufficient to stream music without a ridiculously long buffering time? Or no buffer at all would be better and not like "yeah you can stream netflix on 1x but it might not work well. " No i want personal opinions about the data speeds. Like real world experiences. I want to stream music (xm radio to be exact) over the 4g data network at work to listen to. I usually have like 1 to 2 bars with my om at work so im hoping that the esteem will give me better signal too.

Huawei Ascend (metro Pcs) - Rooting Vs. A2.2

I have a few questions about rooting vs. A2. 2. I want do more with my phone so i have been reading about rooting the phone, but frankly that scares the crap out of me since i would not really know what i was doing. The system on the phone is a2. 1, but i think i read where a2. 2 will be available soon for the ascend. Can anyone give me details:

If i should root my phone or just wait for 2. 2? Does any one know any thing about text to speech? Does any one know why youtube freezes up and how to stop that? The cam is crap and i just have to deal with that, but is there an app out there that will help in modify the pics? Does any know about how to boost the sound when you have the headsets in working out? Is there any way to boost battery life? I keep the gps, wifi off. And make sure to turn off all apps not being used. I have a lot more question, but i'll start and end there.

Lg Esteem Vs Connect - Comparison

I have an esteem got the connect a week ago and wanted to leave my input for everyone to know. So i tried all roms and kernels on my esteem and found best combo to be zvd cleaned up and zvd speed kernel. I use tsf shell which is a 55mb ram launcher but so worth it. I used overclocked for a month too. So i got the connect to see how it is and i really wanted to use 4g while on the phone. I did not realize how much a difference it would be. I was skeptical due to the smaller screen and no hdmi. And quite frankly i was very surprised

The lg connect with its massive ram is excellent at multitasking. It was faster snappier and better than my esteem overall while bloated. The screen is clearly much more vibrant more contrast and very nice colors better than the iphone 4s which my friend has. I am very impressed with the phone overall no lag no bugs and no overheating as others have claimed. Battery life i would say is 30-40 percent better than the esteem with the exact same setup of apps and all. The difference in screen size was unnoticeable and not worthy of mentioning honestly it did not bother me at all and i did not feel a difference. It is also alot nicer in the pocket but i did like the dock with my esteem which i dont have here and i realized i never use my hdmi out to be honest.

So would i recommend the lg connect? Yes i would i am sure you will feel a clear difference especially with the ram difference and 4g while on the phone. Im loving it. Will keep you updated with what i find. Btw i now have it rooted and de-bloated to a certain extent using just freeze. I still have the lg esteem and i switch between them occasionally to test some things out on 4g ability but nothing noticeable thus far.

Cracked Screen - Lg Esteem

Well, i was running and slipped cut my leg open right across my shin, could have gotten about 5-6 stitches but i don't have insurance but i do for my phone lol but at this point i read another person said the screen is not covered under insurance. So, i was looking for just the glass part but looks like they only sell the part as a whole unit. The digitizer is fine and so is the lcd cause the phone still works fine and other than the top layer being cracked and the lcd isn't bleeding etc. Only the glass broke and when i say broke its shattered/spider-ed pretty bad. So, i have a question. Does anyone know for sure that insurance will not cover this? And if it does not cover it maybe someone has a bricked esteem they want to sell me cheaper than this. Touch screen digitizer for lg metro pcs lg esteem ms910 + tools | ebay

I am kinda worried about that screen cause it says metro in the picture but its supposed to say lg and when you scroll down it says revolution ***? And i was reading they are not the same exact part.

Lg Esteem Vs Apple Iphone 4s

I've been an apple fan for 20 years. My girlfriend gave me an lg esteem for my birthday, and will pay 60 dollars a month for unlimited talk and data on metropcs's 4g lte network. My apple friends said i should reject her gift, and get an iphone 4s on sprint, verizon, or at&t. Verizon for the fewest dropped calls, sprint for unlimited data, and at&t if you want your iphone to surf and talk simultaneously.

Problem: i tried a demo of each phone for 15 minutes, and cannot decide what to do. So far the following seems true: iphone is more expensive than esteem (esteem is $250) and the iphone has a mandatory two year contract for at least $100/month. Metro's esteem has no contract and is 60 dollars month-to-month for unlimited talk and data on 4g lte in the bay area. Iphone is only 3g, not 4g. Iphone has a much longer battery life and is a little smaller and lighter. Esteem has a larger screen and surfs faster on the web. Iphone will back up everything to your computer, whereas only parts of the data can be backed up with the esteem, but i have no idea how to back up the esteem. Iphone's battery is built in, whereas the esteem has a replaceable 1500 mah and 3000 mah battery. I forgot to try "siri" on the iphone, but the esteem's talk to text seemed good, but failed on capitalizations and punctuations. Iphone had a better camera, but the esteem pictures on the screen looked better. Apple's iphone has up to 64gb of built in internal memory, whereas esteem has less even if you add a card.

Apple users say android is not good, and android users love their android phones. Can't find anyone who has used both often. So which should i chose, the esteem or iphone4s, and why ?

Can Lg Esteem Be Unlocked To Work In Europe ?

Can the lg esteem be unlocked to work in europe? I am moving to warsaw, poland in a few days and do want to get a new phone. I have had the lg esteem since december 2011. I love this phone, so much so when my first one was stolen i purchased a new one and had to be reimbursed by the insurance company since they would only replace it with the new lg connect (esteems no long in production ). Even though the connect has a dual core process, gorilla glass, and something else i could have cared less about. It did not have the hdmi connection or a 4. 3 screen (that . 3 really does make a difference, lol). I said all that to say, i really love this phone and would love it if i could get it to work while i was in poland.

Can I Get A Fully Charged Without Having To Bump Charge ? - Lg Esteem

I just got one of those cheap ebay deals with 2 1700mah batteries and an external charger (the kind with the slideable +/- prongs). When i use the external charger, i think something is going wrong. The batteries seem not to last as long. They also seem to immediately jump down from 100 to 95.

Bump charging seems to work. I can turn off the phone and charge it up for quite a bit more. Has anybody else encountered these problems? Is there a way i can get a full charge without having to bump charge? Also, the batteries are slightly too large for the cavity so it's pretty hard to swap them out. Aside from that, the batteries have worked fine when charged normally. I get 12 hours on wifi.

Phone Won't Boot After Update - Lg Esteem

My husband has an lg esteem, and a couple weeks ago he got an android update. Well it finished updating, and the phone turned off to restart, but didn't go back on. So he powered it back on, and it gets to the "lg" screen, and then turns back off, and then loads the "lg" screen, and then turns back off, and so on and so on until you take the battery out. We tried turning it on while plugged in, same thing. He said he tried to do a factory reset and it did nothing. Anyone know what might have happened and/or how it might be able to be fixed?

Tutorial On How To Boost 3g Speed To 1mbps ? - Lg Esteem

Warning: don't blame me if your phone dies. Apparently the samsung admire guys figured out how you can boost your 3g speeds: using qpst, you change your "mobile ip behavior" to "simple ip" and it just works. People are saying that they are getting up to around 1mbps on metro's 3g network which is pretty good actually.

How to boost 3g in stock 2. 3. 4. I can't do it because qpst won't recognize my phone. I think it's the dlls or something so i'll try on my netbook tomorrow. I spent like 2hours trying to get it to work but failed, and must sleep now. I hope someone else takes a crack at it. I won't be able to try again until tomorrow evening. I'm wondering if it'll boost 4g speeds as well? Go to forum to read full post.

Trick To See All Photo Albums In The Gallery - Lg Esteem

Its not really "interesting", but i just found this out. Go to your gallery, and you will see all the photo albums there. Place two fingers (index and middle finger) on an album, and while not lifting up the fingers, spread your fingers apart. You will be able to see every picture in that album, with out actually going inside the album. Its kind of like a deck of cards. Idk if you guys already knew about this. But if you didn't, then there you go.
