Could you elaborate on wall/building penetration please. Lots of us uneducated on this.

I think it's that mmWave 5G (which Verizon has built as the backbone of its 5G infrastructure) has high speeds but exceedingly poor range and building penetration.

Basically, "outside and nearby" is when you'll see those high speeds.

Something that wasn't mentioned: I believe if you use a case with this phone, you can't just buy one that fits the OnePlus 8. It has to be one that fits this exact model.

Sorry, but why would the case for OnePlus 8 not fit this one? Didn't see any difference in dimensions.

Anyone know if the bootloader can be unlocked on this? Not sure if that applies to all Verizon models or only phones bought directly from Verizon.

I'm no expert on this but here's what I know:

high frequency (eg: Verizon mmWave 5G network) = faster speed and shorter distance/range and signal can't penetrate obstacles

low/mid band frequency (eg. T-Mobile sub-6 5G network) = slower speed but farther distance/range and signal has no problem penetrating obstacles like walls, trees, buildings.

Think of your WiFi network, 2.4GHz and 5GHz. The 2.4GHz is slower but coverage is a lot better than 5GHz.

The volume rocker is in a lower spot on the Verizon UW 5G version, to make space for an antenna inside.

Think of your WiFi network, 2.4GHz and 5GHz. The 2.4GHz is slower but coverage is a lot better than 5GHz.
As an RF engineer, I can say you are correct. I just would like to point out that sub 6 refers to "below 6 GHz" so in theory it should still be a higher frequency than the 5GHz frequency on a home wifi, which means that it would have a harder time penetrating walls and have shorter distance than the 5GHz frequency. Although this is only the case if they were both transmitted at the same power level. Because we are talking high power cellular networks here, that isn't an issue.

However if the Verizon mmWave network was transmitted at a higher power than sub 6, one could argue that it would penetrate walls and distance just as well as sub 6.
