    So I had an S4 couldn't stand the battery life anymore it was horrible. Now I have a stylo I noticed I have a lot of static or just plain breaking up on my phone calls with this phone. Is this a common thing? Does it have anything to do with the HD voice thing?

    Do you have Wi-Fi Calling enabled, if so select preferred Cellular Network also maybe enable or disable VoLTE, I noticed when I enabled Voice Clarity sound quality was worse when it was turned on than when it was turned off also.

    Hmm... voice clarity works as intended for me. I'm on VM. I don't use the OS's wifi calling settings. Only time I use wifi is when I'm on FB Messenger, or Skype. Wifi calling works on those apps without the wifi calling ticked on. Never experience any static, unless cell reception is really low. As long as I have at least halfway full reception, voice HD calls go through.

    I just bought a Stylo and I'm really impressed, but I have noticed that call quality on wi-fi is not very good. MetroPCS (T-Mobile) has good coverage in my area so I don't expect to have much need for wi-fi calling.

    I also notice that when I receive an MMS message the attachment doesn't download when on wi-fi. As soon as I turn wi-fi off the attachment downloads.

    I wouldn't be one to talk with my very limited knowledge of this device, however my calling experience was pretty good.

    I used to have a Note 4 and the quality of wi-fi calling on that phone was very good. It is not good on my Stylo, but the Note 4 cost about $500 more. I was tempted to say you get what you pay for, but with the Stylo I'm getting a lot more than I paid for.

    Lg stylos are only stable running devices if you own the metro pcs or T-Mobile variants, had a boost mobile variant and it was a constant headache, the biggest hassle was the keyboard lag time;when i would try to text or post the OSK would lag for up to aleast a minute and ahalf before popping up to type, if you do own a T-Mobile or Metro Pcs model you best bet would be to contact the manufacturer, especially if your warranty is still good.

    There was an update to the Wi-Fi calling for the T-Mobile Stylo. I didn't see anything official yet for the Metro version. My phone is rooted so I can't get the update anyways.

    Yeah I got the metro one. I'm going to try to turn off the VOLTE and see if that makes a difference. The battery life on this phone is awesome so far the only real issue I have had was the call quality.

    I changed my preference to cellular first and wifi second for calls. Much better quality

    I have the Metro pcs version. I had to send my first one back in for buggy software (it would occasionally/randomly behave as if i clicked the back button on the bottom left even if the phone was laying down; untouched. And also random reboots)

    After a long and frustrating couple visits to metro pcs i finally got them to agree to honor their own warranty but it took me recording the behavior with another cell phone and presenting it to them for them to agree to accept it.

    I got this replacement a month (unacceptable) later but this one works as intended.

    I noticed a huge improvement in call quality (both on wifi as well as over metro/tmo network)

    Sometimes i notice the Hd calling logo isnt available next to the numbers in my phone but im assuming that has to do with my signal strength. But more often than not hd calling is there when i look for it.


    For me its a big improvement. Maybe not just as clear as two Samsung galaxy s6's i heard in the same phone call. That was scary real. It sounded like the person on the phone is in the room instead at the end of a phone conversation.

    I'd say the experience on the stylo is slightly less than that but its closer to that than a typical cell Phone call without hd voice.

    My only reason for comparing to the s6 is i have2 friends who had the Metro version of the s6 when it came out and we all "ooo ahhhhh'd" over it.

    Maybe yours is defective?

    My wife has a stylo as well (bought them at the same time) and her original had to be returned for the infamous gps antenna problems. The first day it worked but then unfortunately it started giving a location that was off by about a city block and then it stopped transmitting all together.

    She also got a replacement that works as intended
