    That's not the case. Advanced Calling uses 4G for voice - by turning advanced calling off, if uses the voice radio instead (and the network extender) - see Enable/Disable Advanced Calling for Network Extender - Smartphone | Verizon Wireless

    Here is the network extender connected along with a 4G signal and a weak radio signal (on the lock screen):
    Attachment 201257


    edit...
    Interestingly, before I dial a call, I have minimal 4G signal - when I dial a call, it goes to 1x.
    I don't know what to say other than it simply doesn't work for me. I follow the steps and it never says, "Network Extender." In fact, it's never said that, even when I know it's connected (because it reverts to a strong 1X signal and beeps at the beginning of the call, indicating that it is indeed connected). I wish it would work, but it doesn't.

    Seems to me that in your story the one thing that kept coming up as a problem was Verizon. Yet, the story was about the phones. Weak signals, no rooting, network settings, Poor Note battery life (poor signals cause battery drain), etc. I did read it, but perhaps I missed it, but the most obvious solution is to change carriers. A GSM network solves a lot of problems in general and it also opens you up to a HUGE selection of unlocked devices. I am not sure if that is even an option for you.

    Ultimately, you got to go with what works. Multiple drop calls is just not acceptable, especially if your health or income depends on it. No matter how much you like the phone. It is very possible there is a technical reason for it as others have pointed out, but my guess is that you will eventually tire of trying to figure it out and just switch networks.
    There are a few network issues in my post, but I didn't knock either phone for network issues. That wouldn't be fair. The only part that affected either phone was battery life on the Note because it had a weaker signal most of the time, but I don't think I was unfairly harsh. As far as rooting and Verizon prohibiting it, that's kind of a non-factor to me because I don't think you should have to root to switch 4G on and off.

    Now, as far as switching carriers, I've certainly thought about it, but the cons outweigh the pros. AT&T has about the same signal strength as Verizon, T-Mobile is worse, and Sprint is nonexistent. The only carrier with better service at my house is US Cellular but they're much slower to roll out new technology and I'd also have to give up my unlimited data with Verizon to switch to another carrier with limited data, and I'm not willing to make that sacrifice. If the iPhone also didn't have a way to force it on to the network extender then I wouldn't really have much of a choice, but since it does, I'm fine with just keeping the iPhone and my unlimited data.

    Carrier & Location. Two MAJOR factors that will differ greatly per person. So while you may get great signal -- he didn't .
    I understand this fully which is why I said... I... Not all... And why his was a wrong answer given.

    I'll preface the below by saying I don't find your post unfair, but but like iMore's reviews I do find fault in that it completely omits the numerous issues that have surfaced on this year's models both on fan sites and Apple support. Perversely, you're likely to get more honest admissions in the replies here because many of us do own both, whereas the other forum you posted this same post on tends to have issues with open-mindedness (tried to phrase that as mildly as I could )

    As a Android/iPhone dual-wielder, I'm actually less impressed by the 6S Plus than any previous iteration. On top of dpham00's list of reasons why he prefers his Android, I've run into numerous issues despite following all of the suggestions people have posted on iPhone forums.

    Slowness, freezing and lag.
    Email sucks on iOS, I often don't get real-time replies like I do on Android.
    iPhone keyboards continue to be inferior, both stock and 3rd party
    Data reception is hit or miss compared to my Android phones
    Bluetooth connectivity issues
    Multitasking continues to be a bugbear despite the additional RAM and new A9 claims of greatness
    App quality isn't is great as what I keep hearing others claim

    Those are my additions to his list (although I've repeated a few because they really annoy me). I also keep hearing that iOS 9.1 will resolve them if I'm patient... well I've heard that story before with iOS and ended up with new problems after the old were fixed so =/=
    IMHO Apple's efforts to make new additions to the iPhone in order to compete with the numerous capabilities available on Android has in turn introduced that company to a world of added complexity they aren't as accustomed to as Google's Android engineers. Apple's long held hegemony as the king of fast, stable smartphones is a thing of the past now in my books, and their last and final line of defense with carrier free updates packaged in high quality hardware is coming a lot closer to its end as well via the Nexus 6p. To be fair to Note 5, it's certainly an amazing device and a better buy than the 6S Plus in its current state right now, I just made a personal decision to only buy Nexus or iPhone devices from this year forward because I'm permanently done with carrier updates.

    With regards to the slowness and lag, restarting the iPhone and force closing all apps will get it peppy again... For a while. Then you will have to do it again. The annoying thing is there isn't a "close all option" nor is there a restart option (you have to turn it off, then turn it on again)

    For email, the stock email only does fetch every 15 minutes max, but the Gmail app will push emails immediately.

    Google Apps are limited on ios. But some apps are better. Either way, not miles better... One thing that really bothered me was there was no option in Google photos or amazon photos to automatically backup ONLY when charging. Which is problematic when you take hundreds of pictures and are on a weak cell signal (l have it backup over 4GLTE, which works better than wifi for me)

    Data reception I would agree,it is a hit or miss

    To be fair, I will say that the lag/freezing reports will most likely get patched, which is why I added the caveat that while I believe that will happen, it's been my past experience that new issues also tend to arise as well. This is not to say that doesn't happen on Android as well, because it certainly does. The difference is that I prefer Android to iOS so if I'm going to deal with it no matter what, I'd rather deal with it on my OS of preference.
    iOS has a lot more code to it than ever before and those extra lines have also brought extra issues, and Android has also become more refined and responsive (ironic isn't it?). Neither are perfect, both have issues, but the gap is a lot narrower now to the point where we finally have a choice based almost purely on preference rather than software quality assurance. "It just works" isn't a banner the iPhone can honestly hold up anymore.

    It should just work out of the box. Perhaps not perfectly,but major performance issues is unacceptable, imo . All of my high end Androids in the last few years worked right out of the box,performance wise. Sure there were minor things, but nothing as bad as my 6sp.

    That's how I was, too. My 6s Plus was loaded with issues, much more so than any of my recent Android phones. Lag and mail issues were just two of the more major problems. My Note 5 and my Nexus 6 were problem free in comparison.

    Yep, something is fishy with this thread. I don't buy it. I think this is bait for all the Note users. There are some really good suggestions here, but yet you just keep trying to make it about the phones. You act like you are clueless, then when a good suggestion comes up you dismiss it as if you are an expert and you have done that, been there, then refocus it on the phones.

    Truth is, the Note is well known for having a pretty strong signal. As does the iPhone, but you said one of your main concerns and what ultimately pushed you to the iPhone was all the dropped calls on the Note that you don't get with the iPhone. In short, you either have a network issue at your location or you just like all the attention of pitting the iPhone against the Note.

    More likely answer is that his network is screwed up somehow, but I think it's a stretch to claim he's engaging in some kind of conspiracy.

    Just because a Note is known to get good signal doesn't mean it did for him in this instance. Carrier and signal depend so so so much on location that every location isn't the same. I don't see why he'd make it up and write a big review just to say the iPhone got better than the note. Just because your belief or experience doesn't match his doesn't make yours instantly correct and his wrong...

    So we are saying the same thing then. It is not my belief, it is what is written in this thread. He is not blaming the network, he doesn't see the network as the problem. Everything stated points directly at that. Location you are right, has everything to do with it. He said that signal is ok. I simply stated the Note has a good reputation and it does. But it also could be as simple as settings, all of which he dismisses. Despite good advise, he is determined to say the iPhone is the only solution. I know that not to be true. This means "to me" that there must be another motive for that stance. So you agree? The iPhone is his only solution?

    But you don't "know" it to be true -- You aren't him, on his carrier, with his phone, at his locations. The note could just be bad for his area where the iPhone holds on some. Again just because you don't agree doesn't mean he is wrong.

    So how does that even apply? The conclusion of every thing said is pretty easy. I am not even sure why you are arguing it. By your argument every help reply given to any thread is meaningless. I am going by what he has said. They aren't my words. I don't need to be there to come to a logical conclusion from what he has said. I would safely say that most experienced phone owners based on the problems he has stated would agree that the iPhone is not his only solution. That again, based on what he has said, there are a number of other potential problems that could be the issue (likely network or related) not related to it being a Note. Therefore, the statement that he has to use the iPhone is actually false.

    So yes, I actually can come to that conclusion and it is very reasonable. Had he taken the Note in to be checked to make sure it was not defective or tried a Note on a different network at his home. And fully tested the solutions offered to him in this thread and or had a technician check out what might be wrong, I might agree with his conclusion.

    iPhones are great phones. They work wonderfully for many people and if someone wants one, by all means, use it and be happy. But don't say another phone won't work until you have a solid basis to make that statement. Until then, expect people to question that statement. Especially if if what you base that on points to some other technical problem.

    My main point is just because it works for you and others doesn't instantly mean there is something wrong with his or he is lying. Everyone will NOT have the same experience everywhere. You're acting as if you what you say is 100% fact and everything he said isn't and is wrong -- that is my issue. You can't expect everyone to have an amazing experience just because you like your phone -- that kind of thinking doesn't help at all since it is a proven fact that all won't have the same.

    No offense intended but most of us here are saying that there IS something wrong, be it the phone or his network, and poor reception ISN'T the norm for the Note 5.

    I have had more issues with Verizon and any phone than any other carrier and this is with their supplied network extenders which got replaced several times at my house ( Which BTW I strongly recommend that the op exchanges his) If that doesn't help it's most likely a defective phone or as Verizon tried to convince me a magnetic anomaly.....but on my end changing carriers fixed the problem..

    I don't think he is lying. I don't think anyone is being unfair. I have questioned motives. In short, it would seem that everyone can agree that every phone situation is different and that you are right. I don't think he needs defending, because I wouldn't consider what has been said an attack, just more of an observation given what he has said. So I am not sure why you are doing it. He has not even stepped in here to dispute it.

    So you are right in what you say about different phones and environments. We will just have agree to disagree on the motives. I just think he wants to use an iPhone, but I don't agree it was a fair story about his intention to truly try to use a Note. You obviously don't agree, which I accept. I am only responding now to defend myself, otherwise I would be long since done with this thread.

    And you worked through all that because you really did want to use what ever phone you wanted. It was not the phones fault and at some point you realized that by making the effort to find out. Which is my problem with the OP. Had he just started a help thread and said, hey here is my problem. and at some point said, I give up and wants to use an iPhone, it would be different. Instead he headlines an iPhone vs Note story. Guess what, that makes it dramatic. And many people base their buying decisions on stories like that. So if it doesn't add up or give the Note a fair shake, I am going to say something. And I am not even a Note owner, but know it is a damn fine phone, like many other Android phones.

    Wow, step away for a few days a miss a lot.

    First of all, thank you to syspry and Almeuit for giving me a fair shake. While I do think that the conspiracy theorists are being quite paranoid, I can't say it's without reason, because there are a lot of trolls who come to the both Android Central and iMore to do exactly what I'm being accused of. However, I have more than a few posts, and I'd ask you to look at my track record before leveling such an accusation. I couldn't care less what phone someone else buys, but I do care if they want an honest opinion and I can help them with that. So as far as not giving the Note a fair chance, I'd have to strongly disagree. I think I was extremely fair and balanced in my opinions of both phones and my opinion extended to my personal experience only.

    I feel like I've explained it as well as I possibly could, at which point I stopped trying because I kept getting the same questions/comments over and over (and mind you, I posted the on AC and iMore, so I was trying to keep up with both threads simultaneously and keep all the comments straight), so I get why you think I just kind of threw my hands up; but I'll give it one more go. Fact is, I have a network extender because the signal in my home is atrocious. As I said, the Note does in fact pull a stronger signal than the iPhone, which is what a couple of you keep saying, but if you would've read the problem then you'd know that the signal strength, even being slightly better, is not a fix (though if it were significantly better then it might be a different story). I need to be able to force my Note on to the network extender, but because you cannot turn off 4G, that's impossible. This is why I was forced to go to the iPhone. It was for NO other reason other than the fact that the iPhone has a setting that allows me to force it on to the network extender 100% of time. As I stated before, if this had been an option on the Note, I would've never even considered the iPhone 6S. I loved my Note 5 and I wanted to keep it. The S-Pen was an incredible tool and I miss it everyday. Unfortunately, though, I can't have a full-time phone that breaks up and drops calls the way the Note did, especially considering that I have a lot of medical problems. The final straw, as I posted, was when I was trying to talk to my surgeon about what to do for a problem that I was having and I had to call back time after time because the call kept getting dropped (and as you know if you're familiar with the medical field, a different person often answers the phone each time and I had to try to retell the whole story in between breaking up to try to get back on the line with the surgeon). As you can imagine, it was incredibly frustrating.

    So honestly, I don't know how to make it any clearer than that, so if you want to nit-pick and fight, I'm not interested. I gave an honest account of my experience and some people found it useful, others called my integrity into question because the nature of the forums has conditioned them to be paranoid. Again, I understand why that's happened, but you have to look at it on a case-by-case basis and give each person a fair shot, especially when that person has been around for years with no history of trolling or baiting. Not to mention, I can't understand the desire to troll the forums of a phone that I absolutely loved.

    I'd also like to again thank syspry and Almeuit for their fair assessments and for not jumping to conclusions.

    Verizon really doesn't have a good signal booster, AT&T has an OK one, really only good for a phone signal though and stops the drain from a bad signal. It is only a 3G one and costs $200. You didn't have to turn off LTE, it was just basically a mini cell tower on your house that only had 3G service. Sometimes you can get them to give you one. I have used the AT&T one. It requires high speed Internet also. The T-Mobile one though.. It is wonderful. It doesn't require Internet and only requires one bar of LTE signal. It is also good of you don't get strong enough coverage through your entire house. I have the LTE Booster and it does great for data and phone signal.

    My house is in a "hole" and right below tower signals so even though I'm in a great area for all carriers, I just don't get a good signal.

    After using the TMO booster, I would stick with TMO just for the booster.
