    Galaxy S4 vs Galaxy S3 Antenna

    I currently have an S3 and I love it as long as I am not making calls on the phone because I am one of the people that have had major problems with dropped calls. I was told by customer relations for USCC it is due to the fact the the S3 has a shorter antenna than the previous models. I was told that this problem was resolved in the Note 2 by having an antenna for data and an antenna for voice. Does anyone know the antenna situation in the S4's I can switch out of my S3 to an S4 but don't want the same problems. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

    Everything I have heard points towards the problem being resolved, or at least greatly reduced. The S4 has much better reception than the S3.

    How does the S4 reception compare to the Note2 ? Does any one have the Note2 & the S4 so they can compare ?

    After 4 S3's, I finally got USC to approve me for a used for used swap for an S4. It's only been a couple of days, but not a dropped call as of yet. Whereas with the S3 I had 5 dropped calls in a matter of 10 minutes on Sunday. All in a suburb of Milwaukee, so reception shouldn't have been an issue.

    There are a few spots in SE WI that I could literally countdown as to when the S3 would drop the call. I called a few times to Tech Support and gave them the exact location. They said they'd look into it and call me back and I never heard a word. So far the S4 has made it through these S3 dead zones and not dropped a call.
