    I am looking into switching from Verizon to T-Mobile to save some money and have more phone options available to me. I currently have a Priv and I am not happy with how laggy it has become, particularly with Google Maps which I need almost daily.

    I'm looking at either purchasing the DTEK60 or the Motion. Both look like solid devices. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the 2 TB MicroSD capability of the DTEK60, but I'm unsure about how I'll feel about the USB Type C connector since I have so many micro-USBs all over my house to use already. I know 256 GB of storage via MicroSD is nothing to sniff at, and the specs for the phone seem impressive.

    As I move and travel frequently due to my military status, how does the T-Mobile coverage compare with T-Mobile?

    So I'm looking for feed back and experience here to help me make my final decision. Thanks in advance!

    Dtek60 has some battery issues. After few months they start to drain fast and shut down with lots % battery left. 2TB sd cards don't exist yet... And do tare stuck at android 6 while motion is getting 8.1 soon. Also 4000 mah battery on motion is great and camera is not to bad in good light.

    Motion for the Android updates....


    If you meant to ask how does Verizon coverage compare to T-Mobile... you'd be better off finding someone you know that has (or tried) T-Mobile. Where you are might make a big difference.

    Of those two, the Motion.

    Although, neither has LTE band 71 support so that might complicate things in the future.

    How could it cause issues with that one band?

    LTE band 71 is intended to fill some of the gaps in T-Mobile's coverage: if you're already in an area with good coverage, great, but if you're not then LTE band 71 would be welcomed.

    Thanks for the article, very helpful! Does BlackBerry have any devices that currently support or will eventually support that band?

    Currently, no, in the future, maybe.

    I'm on T-mo, with a Motion -- am literally on wifi-calling 90% of use (office, restaurants, etc). But as I'm in So Ca., once outside my home, I get perfect reception cell-wise. Including LTE.

    Dtek60 & Motion work fine on T-Mobile. Motion has a better battery by far but I liked the swipe up option for the hub on the dtek60 but that's not carrier related. Currently using the Motion.

    I was a former DTEK60 user and had good reception with WI-FI calling working on T-Mobile . I now have the Motion and I'd sag the reception is a little better and WiFi calling fully functional as well. The Motion in every way is a much better phone. The DTEK60 has a better camera however.
