Sprint Product Ambassadors – A sanity check on Goggle Pixel 4 XL network performance

Sprint Product Ambassador

Firstly, the following notes are very subjective and it is collected as for my sanity check on my phone usage activity.


There were a few articles discussing about a potential network issue associated with the Pixel 3. An example of the article can be found here:


How to fix Google Pixel 3 XL mobile data (cellular data) not working issue


Since having the phone, I have had littl issue with network connectivity, I usually use the phone playing youtube music or playing a podcast on my drive -from my home to work.  Near my home there is a blind spot, and that is the only place I see that the youtube video may pause if I have not had enough streaming data buffered when I started driving out of my home.


The other day while I was driving home on Fairfax County Parkway (Virginia Route 286), I decided to start the Ookla speedtest on my phone. The following are the screen captures of the Ookla tests as I was passing a cell phone tower and moving South away from the tower.

Please note the Google Pixel 4 XL is not a 5G phone.


It is depending on where you live, but I am quite happy with the Pixel 4 XL performance around the Northern Virginia area here.


Please provide feedback or even post your experience in this forum if any.


Enjoy & Bye for now.
