The phone has no network problems, that's just how to networks works. When you're in call it switches from LTE to HSPA, but you still have internet. That's beacuse 4G does not support voice calling, and its not becuase of the phone. Every 4G phone works like that. And when you're in 3G, it will still work in 3G and you can call and use internet. If you are in 2G coverage, dont expect internet while calling-EDGE networks(GPRS) does not support internet while calling. Its how the network works, not the phone.
The phone by itself is great. Best battery backup, best sreen, sound, high-quality Full hd mobile gaming and every penny for it is deserved. Go for tis phone, it has no issues or problems. The camera is great even in low-light conditions, thats the best phone in the middle range-the best Full HD SAMOLED screen, 13MP FHD camera, 5MP front wich is great in low-light conditions too and 8-core processor (mine is Exynos version).
I have heard about laging on the snapdragon version but have not tried as mine uses exynos and im using multitasking with games and apps with no problems and no lags. If u can choose between the snapdragon and exynos version go for the exynos.
The touchwizz is great and it gives you 100GB onedrive storagein the cloud, plus 128GB sd card support. The LTE is fast, have no bad works about this phone.

navtech64, 16 Jul 2016Great camera, sharp, clear in low light & natural color. Also video can handle HD format. ... morecamera always losses its focus when you pan the scene while taking videos and it's having a hard time trying to regain the focus. so you'll end up with blurry videos. even when not panning, when there is a slight change in the lighting in the scene, the subject would immediately goes out of focus. autofocus doesnt work good and it's very slow.
