I currently have a Note 9 on T-mobile network. I am getting horrendous reception inside my office building with this phone. (I know T-mobile isn't known for their awesome service inside buildings) but I am wondering if anyone has tried both Pixel and Note 9 and what they noticed? I am debating getting the Pixel 3 to see if I can improve the reception any.

I never had issues with mine but I'm on Verizon. The Pixel 3 may help but I wouldn't get your hopes up.

I have both and dont have issue with either one.

Well my pixel 2 wasn't as good as my s9.
But supposedly the 845 gets better reception than the 835 that was in the pixel 2. Fwiw.

I went from Note 8 to Note 9 on T-Mobile and now I have full bars in my condo. On Note 8 I had 1 and no service in elevator. Now it works in elevator fine. I figured it was the Band 71 that has this improvement which the Pixel 3 supports also.

Did you use the same SIM in the Note 9?
