Re: wifi calling
I love wi-fi calling because i never did get very good cell reception at home.

I default to wi-fi, don't have to switch back and forth, don't have to worry about data plans, and as a bonus international wi-fi calling incurs no roaming charges (check with your carrier).
Re dropped calls---never an issue for me, not once in years. In my usage pattern, your mileage may differ, I'm almost always on wi-fi for extended periods of time, at work or home. I'm not the guy popping into a coffee shop for 3 minutes, getting phone calls 15 times a day and trying to walk down the street as I lose the signal. That scenario doesn't affect me. For one thing, I don't actually use it all that much as a phone. If I get a call, it will be brief.
Plus, I'm either in a location where I will stay for awhile, or I have a couple of key coffee shops where I stay, too. I don't let the phone casually hop on to wi-fi at some irregular location I visit unless I specifically need it. Then, it's even less of an issue. The "normal" locations work fine. The irregular ones aren't allowed to proceed.
If you're constantly darting in and out of places and getting a lot of intense calls, this may not work as well for you.
