    I buy a phone to be a phone first, and the texting and internet browsing and gaming and picture sharing, all come second, when my Razr started to die, I "borrowed" a S3 from my daughter that was only used for about 2 months, and was absolutely amazed at what I have been missing. This thing is blazing fast on the internet, takes better pictures than my digital camera....then the phone rang, I'm sure you know what happened, it seems to me that Samsung is building handheld computers that will talk on the phone when conditions are ideal, and Motorola (my only other hands on experience) is building phones that can get on the internet, they aren't as fast, their camera's aren't as good BUT you can have a complete phone conversation without saying "can you hear me now". I still carry the S3 to use as a camera and for handheld computer when I'm close to an available wifi. But when you dial my cell # my crippled Razr is the one that rings, (the phone is about the only thing that still works). Samsung makes beautiful, amazing devises, but unless they have changed their phone radios recently then no one will be happy. I know I'm on borrowed time with my Razr and will be upgrading very soon. I would buy a Note 4 today if they have fixed the phone (and can prove it and guarantee it both). But if not it's looking like it will be a Turbo, but I have to ask, Samsung can you hear me now?

    I haven't done any formal testing, but I drive the same route daily with my phone, and there are a few places where signal gets really weak. The Note 4 is on par with my Moto X 2013 and Moto X 2014, and better than my LG Optimus G Pro, in holding a cell signal. WiFi seems to be on par or even a tad better than most of the phones I've owned.

    GPS does seem to be a weak spot on the Note 4. The GPS performance is markedly inferior to any other phone I have ever owned. Not unacceptably so, but I wouldn't want to drive around in a confusing large city using the GPS for primary navigation.

    For those saying the note 3 reception was bad, are you talking about call reception AND WIFI? I don't have wifi and have to use public wifi so I need a phone that can pick up a wifi signal well.

    Signal strength seems to be about equal compared to my iPhone 5. Data speeds are just a tad worse unfortunately. Using Verizon BTW

    Not sure but it varies on mines, and I got T-Mobile. At a part of my house I get 3-4 bars, and other part of my house I get 0-2 bars. And outside sometimes 5 bars and sometimes 3 bars. So, I'm not sure if it's the phone or is it T-Mobile.

    I think something is wrong with my Note 4 , my wife's S5 seems to hold a signal better and shows better numbers on the Dbm. It just doesn't seem to be up to what it was a while back. My Note 4 want be a year old to November.
