    How bad is reception on note2?

    I have a thunderbolt now, and It's time for something new. I wanted the galaxy s3 but was told and saw first hand that people were dropping calls. I'm not sure if that is a Boston Area thing or what? I have talked to a few samsung reps and they claim it is a software issue, but that they are aware of the problem and that issue was fixed in the Note 2. Can somone tell me what the signal stength is? I average around -70-80 dbm with the thunderbolt. I really want this phone but not if I am going to be dropping calls...

    I can't tell you what it's like around your location, but I can say that it beats out my maxx connection wise.

    I've noticed the Note 2 to be about 5-10dBm worse than the DNA and Thunderbolt, but so far I haven't had a problem with it even in poor coverage areas.

    In Kansas - no signal / connection issues with the Note 2...I have the S3 as well and it definitely seems improved.

    Consistently my signal strength is around 114-118 dbm. In my building that I work in, I never was able to get a 4g signal with my nexus and now I have a great connection. I work in a school so there are tons of wires and network cables that have always caused me to drop calls. I did a conference call with my new note and it lasted 20 minutes or so and was clear as a bell. So yes. For me the signal is much better than my nexus. I didn't know how bad my signal really was until I got this beast!!!!

    No issues here at all. Calls are rock solid and voice quality is far better than my Bionic. Data is also rock solid.

    I'm hesitant to take the plunge having had so many issues with the Nexus. My Maxx is like a tank.

    This phone is like night and day from the nexus. But I understand as i swore off samsung devices after my nexus. Amazing what having better reception will do with how you feel about a oem.
