So, I’m still using a 6-year-old Samsung Galaxy S5 because I haven’t come across anything clearly better that 1) works on my network, 2) has a removable battery, headphone jack, and MicroSD slot and 3) allows full root access without the constant threat of updates breaking things.
I’m very interested in the Teracube 2e, mainly for the Wi-Fi calling and VoLTE, support for new Android versions, and the warranty/repair services. My main reservation is that the CPU appears to be no more powerful than my existing Snapdragon 801. This actually isn’t a problem for most of the applications I run - I rarely feel like things are noticeably slow - with one exception: Google Maps.
A few months ago, with the most recent major update, Google Maps has become almost unusable - it’s extremely slow and crashes frequently. My main question, then: Will the Teracube ship with, or be tested with, the most common Google applications (especially Google Maps)? I sometimes drive long distances for work, and reliable Google Maps support is rather important to me.
