    Why is it when reviewing new phones forums don't talk about antenna and data speed.

    Example: Samsung Galaxy phones seem to have weaker 4G reception than LG or Pixel Phones.

    I have a Galaxy S10 Plus and an unlocked Pixel 3XL.

    Using the same SIM card in the same areas my 4G data speeds measured with Ookla and Open Signal are significantly higher (at least double) with the Pixel compared to the Galaxy. Thinking of returning the Galaxy.

    Because people care more about the pretty part than the function part.

    It's probably just too subjective, and pretty much all phones are good enough these days for the majority of people.

    That said, my S10e definitely seems to have weaker signal strength across the board than the OnePlus 5 it replaced.

    I used to have the S7 and got rid of it for LG. I was hoping by now they would have gotten this fixed.

    Because that sort of thing isn't going to be same for everyone across the board.

    Because 95% of consumers care more about the camera specs for their selfies and Facebook.
