S10: LTE (& Wi-Fi) Not Automatically Switching to Stronger Signal/Band

Navigator
They need a software fix for the Wifi and LTE. It does not switch automatically to the next known router for wifi instead wants to sit on the weaker signal over going to the stronger signal. This happens as well with the LTE bands. The device refuses to switch to a stronger LTE band and will persist squatting on the weaker band. They have the threshold set entirely too high as to when the device switches. This is actually a very easy software fix and would eliminate many complaints about service.

I've asked before and was ignored:

 

Are they going to address the networking issues on LTE at all or are we just ignoring them pretending people aren't complaining and just blame carriers all around the world? They have to know their device is squatting on the weak LTE signal at this point, there's no way around it.

 

With all the complaints on the different forums complaining of the device having weak LTE signal this is also a direct result of the battery complaints, they go hand in hand. Samsung telling people there are no complaints is ridiculous, Helen Keller could see the complaints.

 

Ringtones increasing, gestures and bixby nonsense is nice for secondary stuff, but what about fixing the main component of the device first. And just an FYI, I disable/uninstall as much of this as possible.

Hi @doesitmatter,

 

I’ve moved your post from the Suggestions thread to a thread of its own to give it wider attention here; plus edited in the relevant part of your first post in that thread.

 

Have you sent any error reports with log files on this issue via the Samsung Members app? 

 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Plus, if there are any other UK/European S10e|S10|S10+ users experiencing the same issue as doesitmatter, please send error reports with log files via the Members app.

(Sending the info as soon as you notice the issue is best. Relevant keywords in the title/description also help the software team locate them at their end.)

Hi,

 

Ignore my other posting, since I now see where you put my post.

 

I have not sent anything through the member's app, as it was one of the first bloatware I removed on the device.  When I was using an OP device, I sent system logs to them by email over using an app. I like my devices with the least amount of bloat apps and only apps I want and use.

 

There are actually several threads which in the end all in essence have the same theme, LTE and battery issues. It may be better to actually combine them all as the issues are all the same.

I thought I had mobile network or internet issues when I couldn't access the internet on my Samsung Galaxy S10+.  Having got used to my Lumia 950 switching seamlessly between mobile and WiFi I was non-plussed by what was happening.

 

I looked further and certainly when WiFi is poor or even stops then the S10 doesn't always revert to mobile networks.  My phone had failed this simple task so many times.  I need to switch WiFi off manually to trigger access to the ever present mobile network.

 

I have had my Samsung S10+ for several months and have to say that the hardware is great, but the software is distinctly lacking.

So on the Samsung US forum people are saying that Samsung admitted there is an issue with networking and many TMobile customers are hearing it from TMobile as well. They are being told they are working on a fix and it will come out in a few months.

 

First, A few months???? They've already had more than a few months to know this was a huge issue and be working on it. What exactly did they do and how bad did the coders screw everything up?

 

Yes, I know that the US version is snapdragon and it's littered with many more issues than the International model, however that doesn't negate the fact that both models have extremely poor networking coding and both suffer the same problems. Which tells me, they most likely used the same coding with tweaks for each processor.  When is our fix?
