    I hate to say it, but I've been having signal/speed issues, and just confirmed at least for me it's the "you're holding it wrong" thing. (or antenna placement) If I do a speed test the way I normally hold my phone I get 12-15 Mbps down/less than one up. If I hold the phone flat in my palm not covering the antennas it jumps up to 41-51 down/5-8 up. I tested several times in the exact same location, just adjusting how I'm holding it. That's a bummer. YMMV, but that seems to be my issue at least.

    I noticed the same thing today. Funny thing is, I don't think it affects just the Note 10+.

    I borrowed a colleague's Canadian S8 to test side-by-side with my international Note 10+. I had the Note mounted on the dash and the S8 in my hand, both running speed tests. Contrary to expectations, the Note was winning all the repeated tests, whereas I picked that street to run the tests because it was precisely where the Note struggled in weeks past.

    However, when I put the S8 down and then ran the tests, they were almost even. And when I held the Note and ran the test, it also began to struggle.

    I don't have any metal implants or anything, but we can't be the first to experience this.

    The problem is the curved screens. They just don’t allow the antenna design to be large enough to pick up enough.

    Never go by coverage maps on that. Use open signal or cell mapper. You can even map out your own area by cell mapper and it uploads the the site.

    I'm not sure if it was something Samsung included in the October patch or if TMo did some provisioning on their end, but I've been getting much better speeds lately using the unlocked Note 10+
