This new product integrates next-gen voice technology and currently works only with LG G5, Samsung Galaxy S7, and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge handsets.

Customers not happy with HD Voice can now test a new network upgrade. Dubbed Enhanced Voice Services, this technology promises to improve three key aspects of modern voice communication - reliability, quality, flexibility.

These are the strong parts of EVS in detail, as described by T-Mobile:

  • Improved voice call reliability - less frequent dropped calls on LTE in areas of weaker signal
  • High-fidelity calls - better quality than HD Voice, thanks to a broader frequency range, thus providing more realistic voice audio
  • Flexibility - works on WiFi and T-Mobile LTE

Even better than the above, T-Mobile customers with compatible handsets can enjoy the benefits provided by EVS when the person they are talking to does not use an EVS-capable device. Right now, only LG G5 and the two Galaxy S7 handsets on T-Mobile support EVS, but the carrier is working on adding 7 more compatible smartphones to the list by the end of 2016.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
