Consumer Reports is clueless
I skimmed part of the article, as my parents get the dead-tree consumer reports. Utterly worthless. They didn't differentiate between Faux G and LTE at all for AT&T, so I don't know what they were talking about, and they lumped T-Mobile's Faux G right in there with the rest of them. A lot of the rest of the article was either awful, or "NO DUH" as well. One hilarious thing I noticed is they gave every smartphone one of the bottom two ratings for voice quality, which doesn't help a lot. They also had no explanation of how poor Verizon's voice quality is compared to AT&T, and the list goes on. It was obviously written for an unintelligent and/or technologically retarded audience.
