I have the AT&T carrier branded model. Terrible, terrible reception (in Tampa area). My parents have LG and BLU phones, both cheapies. They both have flawless reception.
Don't listen to the distractions about flashing carrier firmware or about why the number of bars doesn't accurately reflect signal--its all noise.
These phones have terrible reception and Samsung is pretending they don't hear us.
I'm sure someday a lawyer will get rich off a class action suit, and we'll all get $2.75 or something.
The same Here I have also a Note 10, that give me very poor signal, the Netherlands have the best coverage Network There is, Everytime problems with the signal, tomorrow I go to T-Mobile where the phone is from and go back to Samsung, because This Is horrible
I have also a Note 8 That's Works fine, good signal and Speed
OMG thank you so much for posting this...I'm a software engineer so I like to think I can troubleshoot and make sure I'm rebooting deleting all faulty apps whatever it is however I'm sick and tired of these Samsung flaws ! I compared side by side iPhone and note 10+ plus and what I did notice is that if the note10+ switches to a 3g signal /4g it will stay stuck in that signal no matter what tower you are switching too!!! In addition I have had even a worse issue sometimes when it gets stuck in 3g I can't make any calls but I can receive calls just fine while the iPhone is perfectly working fine on the same providers in the same location !
