LTE bands

2014-09-18, 23:34 PM
I am interested in buying an unlocked moto x (2nd generation).


Which LTE bands does it support?


 


According to Wikipedia, it (xt1095) supports FDD LTE bands 2/3/4/5/7/17.




It means it supports 1900/1800/1700/850/2600/700Mhz.


 


Is this imformation true?
Solved! See the solution

Interesting because the locked versions support more bands that the unlocked version (This makes no sense to me).



See this screenshot which is from the moto x specs page:

There had not been any details on Motorola homepage until yesterday.



I was very dissapointed because the unlocked version (xt1095) supports only three bands, which are not working in most foreign countries.



 



Anyway, according to many site including wikipedia, xt1095 and at&t locked version (xt1097) has the same specs.



e.g. http://www.phonearena.com/phones/Motorola-Moto-X-2014_id8897

They are so confusing!

I would be very cautious about relying on specs that don't come from Motorola.  The Android Central article, for example, is dated 9/5, which means they were looking at pre-production models.  They list specs for a Verizon model that hasn't even been announced yet.  



I work in an industry that provides very limited distribution of preproduction models.  The specs are often different from the final model approved for sale.

I'll be rejecting the delivery of the XT1095 I ordered because it lacks the hardware to utilize all of AT&T's bands. I'm not sure of I'll deal with the compromise of update delays and bloatware by getting the AT&T version. My patience with Motorola runs very thin between this, the battery life, and the fact that I just received my 4th 2013 Moto X because every software update breaks my phone.

Seems like it was the same deal with the Moto X 1st Gen developer edition.  Which its seems may be replaced by the Pure.

Here are the bands specified on the MotoX 1st Gen


4G LTE bands


700/AWS/1900MHz (B17/B4/B2)


Networks

2G/2.5G GSM/GPRS/EDGE bands


850/900/1800/1900 MHz


3G UMTS bands


850/900/ AWS/1900/2100 MHz with HSPA+ up to 42 Mbps (B5/B8/B4/B2/B1)

We posted updated specs for the Moto X -- not clear to me if you have seen 'em.

Band 5 for AT&T. From direct experience, most of Vermont has it as the only band for LTE, and reports are other areas are in the same situation since August 2013 (http://www.howardforums.com/showthread.php/1757531-AT-amp-T-4G-LTE-Latest-markets-launching-and-speculation/page99).



In addition, newer AT&T phones are receiving band 29 support for future use (http://www.fiercewireless.com/story/att-unveils-lte-phone-supports-700-mhz-spectrum-it-got-qualcomm/2014-07-15).



For T-Mobile users, band 12 is not supported (http://www.androidcentral.com/t-mobile-closes-deal-700mhz-spectrum-reiterates-commitment-lte-rollout).



And  anyone using a Pure Edition will not have access to global LTE roaming on bands 3 and 7.



It would be nice to have a clean, quick to update phone that can access the full network for the compatible carriers. It's frustrating that the only decent phones that meets this criteria are the Nexus 5 (which has the WORST reception I've ever seen on a phone) or an iPhone. And I really do like the extra touches Motorola adds.



I decided to order an AT&T model Moto X and will return the Pure Edition when it arrives. The only thing that would change my mind is if the Pure Edition has the hardware to support these additional bands with a software update (any insight, Matt?). There are no other phones that come close to meeting my needs from an overall experience standpoint compared to the X.
