The internal antenna isn't all bad. First, you can't break it plus it can't ever it leak water into the camera (which has happened in the past to me with other MMS models I've owned).
Second, it doesn't look Like a normal MMS camera which may fool some theif into getting their picture taken. I took advantage of this covering up the "wireless" letters on front case and also placed a sticker inside the case covering up the wireless lettering inside. Now you will have to enter the settings LCD before you know it's a cell camera.
I also seal the case with a small wire tie that you need wire cutters to access. That way incase some stole the camera it should keep taken pics all the way home with them maybe getting their picture.
The bad is you really need 2 bars IPhone signal in my area for the cam to send at a high percentage. My area has really seen a boost in 3/4G towers I get better service now with newer 3G cams than I do with my Older 2G cams. In fact most of my old 2G cams only get 2 bars cell and in the same spots my newer 3G cams with pick up 3-4 bars cell. I think this is because the two new towers install in my area don't have 2G added since it was scheduled to be phased out.
The Spartans are still number one in my book MMS camera wise. They have a much better APP, better cell reception in low cell areas, 1080 pics, great HCO service after sale and I like the camera construction a touch better.
The bushnells are a good camera I've been pleasantly surprised with them in a lot of ways. I like having both models in my gear bag and I use each one to its max strengths when placing them in the field.
I prefer the Spartans on feeders/food plots with the 1080 MMS pics, plus external CustomOne cable/SLA battery for long battery life, Better APP to manage large volumes of pics.
I prefer the bushnell for security type use /scrapes/rubs/trail setups. The battery life using lithium AA's typ 5-15 pics a day on these setups is really strong and should pass 3+months depending on cell strength at each spot. The trigger speed is so fast ATV/UTV/trucks can't get passed without a pic of them on our roads/trails on property. A big plus for property security. Night flash is a big plus also these cams produce really bright and clear night pictures.
