Verge threw a bombshell at OP

?

If those of you that have or are considering buying a OPX, is this a deal breaker?

    It seems like everytime when OP tries to do something, they go backwards every freaking time.

    I was literally about to buy an X. Thanks OP! You saved me a lot of headache!

    Looks like 1+ cuts cost in the wrong corner. How disappointing!

    maybe if they actually listened to the people and did some research of the demographic they wouldn't screw up so bad

    I thought even the sheep got sick of it :D

    On the topic, yeah it is frustrating to see an essential network band missing.

    lol all they had to do was to include the bands that were in the OPT in the OPX. And they completely F'd it up. This phone had tons of potential and now it's basically a "do not buy" for the US Market.

    What a lot of people don't know about Band 12 is even if the phone has it listed it might not be turned on. Take the Moto X Pure Edition and the new Nexus 6P and 5X. All three of these phones have Band 12 listed in the specs but in reality none of them have it turned on. The reason for this is because T-Mobile (the phone service that uses band 12) won't allow the manufacturers to turn on the band unless they go through their certification process for VoLTE and none of the 3 have done it yet and no timeframe has been set. In order to get a phone that works with Band 12 you need to buy one directly from T-Mobile such as the LG V10, newest iPhones or Samsung phones plus others.

    It just never seems to go smooth for them (or customers). I got tired of having to do business a different way than I am use to with a product that is so important to me.
