I have this phone and use it on Tmobile with LTE coverage
I have this exact phone and rooted it in 5 minutes and now use it on Tmobile and get LTE coverage. Using speedtest I can get 24 to 30 mbps download speeds. This phone is a beast. It is a quad core processor and has the ability to use all four cores at once at 1600mhz. This mean you have a 6400mhz phone. I use the Beanstalk 4.4 rom on it and I must say I LOVE my phone. This is an awesome deal. Yes there Note 3 is out but it is also $600. If you root the phone you can run the KitKat android operating system. The camera is only 8mp but for my taste it is plenty. If you are having any doubts just buy it and you wont be disappointed.
