    Would like some real world opinions on the reception/signal as I've seen a couple of complaints on that already. Can anyone relate it to the Note 2 in this matter yet?

    I use my phone primarily for business, so I have to have a strong signal. That and I refuse to go back to the issues with the S2. I was all set on this phone, but the ONLY deal breaker they could manage from my standpoint, it seems is now questionable.

    It's not brilliant but it's not so terrible.

    I'm on EE (orange) and it actually is better reception/signal wise than my Note 2

    Are both of you on LTE networks?

    Not good. The only bad thing I can say about this otherwise great device.

    One would think that with such a large phone they could put a decent sized antenna in it. Are they still placing the antenna on the bottom?

    I live on the outskirts and use a repeater/amplifier to get a reliable signal from Verizon; have to wait until I get the note 3 before test though :)

    TTT, Supposed to pick up my note III today and was wondering if anyone else is finding the reception weak. If it's anything like the S2, there is no way I'm getting it. I'm in a strong LTE area, Atlanta.

    Here in Hong Kong reception is usually quite strong but over the last 2 days that I had my device I have found that it almost never shows full bars on my Note 3. Reception is definitely not as good or strong as my HTC One is. I wonder if this has something to do with all the extra bands that they now have on the new Samsung Note 3 :thinking:
