Wife and I drove from WA to TN. Used an LG V30 to for all of our data needs which included Searches, navigation and video streaming. I was impressed because Tmobile wasnt too good on our prior trek a few years back. I would say we had coverage for at least 90% of the trip. When we got to TN, We took advantage of a half off Note 10+. Little did we know, we still got ripped cause on the trip back, the phone buffered 90% of the time. So much for technological advancements. The reception had nothing to do with our carrier, but has everything to do with our phone. You would think they field test these phones for at least a week. Thats how long it took me to realize I was holding a very expensive flash light app. (that works).
Let me inform you I have the Samsung Galaxy S10+ and the reception is HORRIBLE!!!
if Anyone is seeing this note, do not waste your time and have returned BACK TO THE STORE, your SMG10+ or your NOTE 10, NOTE 10+ . They do the same horrible Data and Wi-Fi reception. Hopefully, only hopefully for the new SG11, SG11s+, and the SNote11+ they may come with a difference comunication device.... you may want to go for this one... otherwise, I and you will need to go the "other" brand...
Samsung still does not want to admint their horrible product; I'm so frustrated...
My husband & I have the Samsung Galaxy 10E. We left Boost Mobile with iPhone 7+ and traded it in to get our current phone. Well...so far so good, but I have been noticing how my phone slows down when not on wifi and so far my internet disconnected 2× on me. I always loved SG phones, but that disappointed me a little. 🤷🏾♀️
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.
