    Phone where Reception is #1 priority

    I've been on ATT for about 3 months now using an S20. I'm not impressed with the phones ability to hold a weak signal. I don't know if it is the ATT network or the S20, but it sucks. Does anyone have any suggestions of a phone I could try that is especially good at holding and maintaining a weak signal? The phone has to also have wifi calling.

    Thanks.

    Too bad there aren't any real Motorola's on the market to speak of anymore. I find LG G6 and LG V40 have exceptional signal strength and usability in fringe service areas. I'm quite certain their latest model includes 5G compatibility as well. Next to almost any Samsung my phone almost always has a better noise margin and performs even at -121db.

    One of the best phones to date for signal strength in At&t was the Samsung S6 Active. The plastic versus metal and glass body may have played a roll in that.

    The S6A was amazing with holding LTE in low signal.

    The N20 Ultra has very good signal. It does better than my Note 10+ did.

    It has a better amplifier than the S20s.
