    It looks like some of the Verizon users are reporting trouble with signal/reception, is anyone who has a AT&T version having similar difficulties or is it a CDMA/LTE issue?

    I had horrible problems with VZW LTE service, gave VZW 11 months to fix it and I just dumped them for AT&T....no issues with AT&T so far after about a week.

    It can vary on the area you live....check the coverage map:
    AT&T Coverage Viewer

    Enter your address, click VIEW, if you get dark blue you're in LTE coverage.

    Verizon is at disadvantage of having to pair two distinct radios in their 4G phones, CDMA and LTE. But for AT&T, HSPA+ to LTE switching is better, more stable because LTE is basically advanced HSPA technology which all belong to WCDMA. That's why we see far less signal issue threads on AT&T.

    Verizon is using CDMA for 1X voice/text, 3G data and LTE for fast data. They are trying to move to VoLTE in the future to solve this problem, but it's going to take long while. But Verizon still has much larger LTE coverage than AT&T. So there is trade off for both network.

    I guess it depends on where you live in. I'm with at&t and in my area they suck!

    Will the snapdragon S4 chip from Qualcomm help with this problem?
