    Ive had my phone for a couple of days now and I just noticed that the max I could get out of this phone is 3 bars. Thats with LTE.

    Should I exchange it for a new one?
    Ive never had this issue with my old phone which was an iPhone5.

    Your iPhone and Galaxy are going to show different bars. Technically each phone can show different bars because it depends on how that phone is programmed. Some are more forgiving and show more bars for the same signal that another phone shows less. I wouldn't worry about it honestly if the phone is functioning fine.

    Depends upon your coverage area in terms of signal strength. I am on AT&T and getting five bars at restaurant a mile from my house.

    Call AT&T tech support. They can remote into your phone and see what is happening.

    They're calibrated differently. One bar on your S6 is not going to be the same as one dot on your iPhone.
