My question as well...
For your Note8, is it branded AT&T, or unlocked? Same thing for the Note10.
I'm on Verizon, but I definitely notice different reception strengths between my Verizon Branded phones and unlocked phones. Nothing egregious, but I do notice it.
Mine does the same thing I am on sprint. Both phones note 8 and note 10+... haven't canceled my other line yet.. my note 8 will get my fb notifications a good 5 to 10 mins before my note 10+ its ridiculous!!! My phone note 10+ loses service everywhere.. sitting on top of my note 8 that works perfectly fine. I am highly disappointed! Wanted for the camera but the awful signal on the phone is making me consider just keeping my 8. For the price of this phone I feel like I might as well have just flew there and sat next to person I was talking to, it probably would have been cheaper. Lol!
I bought unlocked through Samsung and have TMobile. I have 2 bars right now and my speed is 8 Mbps download and .4 upload. I'm having the same problem.
I had same issue using unlocked on t-mobile. Is yours unlocked version or the ATT version? There is another thread on here about unlocked having network strength issues on t-mobile. Trying to find out if it is the unlocked firmware and if the carriers is better.
I have the unlocked version too on Tmobile and I did notice a huge reduction in signal reception right after putting my sim card from my Note 9 into the Note 10
I pre ordered it at Besr Buy.
Can you maybe shed some light on carrier bands for branded firmware vs bands for unlocked firmware? Is there a difference?
I feel like this is more of a carrier thing and not a Samsung thing, but I'm not sure.
I bought the note 10 plus unlock version from samsung and I'm having the same problem my is tmobil at my house had full bars now only 1 and everywhere I go it keeps dropping the calls
