    Which of these 3 Tracfone Rewards Phones has the best call quality?

    So I'm deciding between 3 Tracfone Rewards phones. I've read the online reviews but sometimes they don't talk much about the call quality.

    People on HoFo who have used these 3 phones, could you please chime in about the call quality on these 3 phones:
    - Moto G Power
    - Samsung A21
    - LG Reflect

    It would be great if someone has used all three of these, and can compare their call quality! I don't think these models are too popular though, so anyone who has used any of these phones, please help with call quality observations and any other general observations, likes/dislikes about the phones too. Thank you in advance for any help!

    Of those phones, I only have the Moto G Power. Among all the phone brands that I have (LG, Samsung, Moto, ZTE, Alcatel, Pixel, Huawei...), Moto phones seem to have the lowest call quality. I use the weather report phone line 785-234-1591 at my local airport to test call quality (clarity, volume). The weather report is for pilots and is very technical, so your brain can't just "fill in" the part you didn't hear clearly. With Moto phones (E5, E6, G Power), I have to concentrate to get the complete report. With LG phones (at least 8 of them), the info just comes through loud and clear. The other brands fall in between the two limits. It's just my opinion.

    I recently got an LG Reflect. I have not made a call with it though so I can't comment on that. It seems to be a nice phone. I've just been using it for wifi and reading ebooks. It's a very long rectangular shape. It could double as a yard stick, or a meter stick, if you do metric. It has a USB C charger, and it has a tiny notification blinker light in the upper right corner. It has a fancy 3 lense camera system but I have not used that much either. I got mine on HSN for a $60 special price, not sure I'd want to pay more than that for it.

    I have the Moto G Power 2020 and the Samsung Galaxy a21.
    I have not made any calls with the Sammy yet but I frequently use the Moto G Power 2020.
    Mine is the Tracfone version but I am using it on Safelink running T-Mobile.
    It has excellent call quality.
    Excellent reception and signal strength.
    I do live in an area where T-Mobile is absolutely the signal King.

    The Sammy has the usual irritating Samsung bloat and whacky Sammy set up.
    But it is tolerable.

    I'd have to say that the Moto G Power 2020 is on the top of my list of favorite phones.
    And I have a lot of phones.

    During Black Friday, I was looking at the A21 for my dad. I found out the A21 has performance issue over time.

    People are thinking it could be from the Mediatek MT6765 CPU that Samsung used in them.

    A coworker coming from a low end Bluphone got an A21 & hated it. He moved up to the A51 & loves it.

    I have had both the 2020 Power & Stylus and pleased with the sound quality ( I'm pretty picky)The only complaint is the bouncing volume & equalization when there is ambient noise around. It can be fixed by turning on "Hearing Aid" compatibility in the settings.

    Thanks for the info.
    The size aspect sounds great because I am shopping for my grandpa who specifically wants a large phone. Particularly a WIDE phone, he doesn't like the recent trend toward phones that are long instead of wide. But even more important to him is call quality.

    Thanks, that's such a great idea! I'm surely going to try it with the phones I have.

    That doesn't sound good for the A21, to be compared negatively with low end Bluphone! The A51 is more expensive compared to the A21 but it is narrower - and my grandpa is like, the bigger the better - so that's out.

    The Moto G Power is just a tad narrower than the A21.

    Things are starting to look bad for the Samsung A21 in this thread!

    Please keep the responses coming. They are very very helpful! Thank you.

    I have a old TF LG Stylo 3 and I do like the size and shape of it, for a larger phone. I don't know the aspect ratio but it's a nice rectangular shape, not too narrow. I don't know if the newer LG Stylo phones are similar type shape. The stylus that comes with the phone is also handy.

    I have Rewards Point nearly ready for me to use for a phone coupon and I may get one or more LG phones with it. I do like the LG phones. I've had some Samsung phones (Galaxy S7), but the newer ones don't look as appealing.

    The Stylo 4 & Stylo 5 are old style wider phones. The Stylo 6 is the new tall & skinny aspect ratio.
    I bought a Stylo 5 just because of the screen size, but I've never made a voice call with it, it's just a mini tablet for me.

    Look up any phone you're interested in on www.gsmarena.com . It lists the screen size, resolution, aspect ratio, and pixel density.

    Thanks for the info. I will look at the Stylo 4 and 5 models. I like to use the larger phones as mini tablets, I'd never carry one as my main phone. Too big. My daily use phone is a 5 inch TF Samsung Galaxy S7, still a nice phone in a small size.
