Hoping the folks here can help:
I have Verizon, on contract till May next year (though I'd dump it to fix this issue). I have a Samsung Note 3.
I notice call quality degrades/drops on 95 north between Canton/Attleboro, I notice them on Rt 3 by Pembroke and other spots, down the Cape it is awful (Brewster area). But the worst part is at my place on the Cape (I only got internet for the summer), it goes out of service altogether. Not ideal, but I use my Google Voice for phone and actually like being a little out of service, though texts over wife using Verizon Messaging are inconsistent. Once my service goes out of service, even if I drive back to an area that is good, I have to re-boot my phone to get it to turn on network. I can't even just put it in airplane mode then back off.
As such I am sick of this phone. Google searches show this is not uncommon for the Note 3. I was always of the understanding that the Motorolas were the best for coverage, but the Turbo has mixed reviews on coverage. Plus I am used to the bigger screen. Was going to look at the G4, but it supposedly has reception issues. If Verizon would just allow calls over Wifi this wouldn't be an issue, but as of yet this hasn't been put into place (supposedly mid-2015??)
Anyways, anyone have a good experience with any of the newer phones after weaker phone reception with a Samsung?
