multiloop, 03 May 2019Thanks for responding. In all this while I've done a lot of research. I managed to ask someone... moreYou need to get a new phone from them but its impossible, what you can do is ask them to send it to the service center where they can change the phone reciever, try some other samsung center not the one you go to. Where I live in north Europe we can just send the phone to the main service center by post at cost to Samsung

I managed to ask someone to come with their S10 to my office. The calls went through with this S10 without any hiccups whatsoever.
Also, I've been using the same network in this workplace on Mi 5 without any trouble. Also, there are many S9 and S8 users in my office. They have never had such complaints and they call on VoLTE.
Also, I tried two other networks and the problem persists.
Clearly, there is trouble with my phone. It is with the service centre now for diagnosis but they have been claiming that the problem lies with network in my area.
At the service centre there was another customer with Note 9 who complained of similar call drops but in random locations. The service centre simply did a fresh softwareinstall and sent him back.
My problem is that I will never be able to proove to them about call drops since the drops do not happen at the service centre.

At my workp... moreHe is right with volte calls it can be bad sound because calls over 3g are better till the operators dont improve the amount of bands. The S10 models and Note 9 has a lot of bands on offer but your operator only works on 900 or 1800 or 2100 whatever. But 3G calls work all over. I use LTE/3G/2G with volte calling off. With volte calling on data speeds are much slower
Best phone I've used. Fingerprint issue? No just ad same finger 3 times or something then it works alot better. Not the fastest but I use face unlock so never bothered by that.
I really like Samsung phones, literally all of my past phones were Samsung.
But I've found some pretty harsh critiques about it online.
https://youtu.be/JzxjRSVXVd4 This one right here is pretty interesting for example. Can you agree with the fingerprint issues and not so good cellphone reception when the signal is weak?
Its a fail! What poor battery it has. Often smells like its on fire. And then today I read that a s10 got burnt after emitting fumes. I fear mine will be next. It almost always smells like a burnt wire after medium usage. Lags a lot too. Made a poor choice, will probably upgrade to pixel 3 or XS Max and bear the loss. Sigh
I would like to share a peculiar trouble with my S10 that I purchased 8 days ago.
At my workplace, wherein I have been working for about ten months, I am now experiencing major trouble in calling with this phone - the person at the other end is never able to hear my voice properly - in every call!
But, outside of my workplace, this problem does not occur at all! Voice quality is amazing.
I went to the service center. One of the representatives immediately advised a factory reset and fresh install of software from their system. I got that done, but the problem was still there. Very poor connection!
I went back and another representative gave me an advice which has solved my trouble magically! Now, the call quality is back to normal just like i get outide my workplace.
The advice given to me was to change the Network Mode from LTE/3G/2G to 3G/2G. He had said that this new phone has more bands than ever and that it is possible that my workplace environment does not support the new bands (sounds illogical). By the way, the signal bars still show 4G icon but not Volte/LTE like in the other network mode. (And my last phone, Mi 5, never gave me such a trouble)
Although the problem was solved, but i wondered that changing the mode from LTE to 3G will have a bearing on the data speed. I used Ookla speed test to determine that and yes, there is a major difference in download speed - it is less than half in 3G/2G network mode.
Can you please tell me if there is a trouble with my device harware or was the representative right?
Anonymous, 30 Apr 2019Samsung got much better at removing bloatware, remember the days of S3 till S5?Yes, that why I become from Samsung hater to Samsung not hater (but still not a lover). Just appreciate Samsung for this change.
Help!! P30 pro vs Mate 20 pro vs Note 9 vs S10. Im buying a phone over the weekend. Cant decide yet.

I have upgraded from a Samsung Galaxy S7. This device's built quality is excellent. Camera punch hole actually doesn't bother you after a day of usage. Battery life is phenomenal. I easily get around 5 1/2 to 6 hours of screen on time. Best feature of this phone is the display quality. Samsung has definitely kept its best displays for its flagship devices. All in all I am really happy and satisfied with this device.
Regular S10 user here - Upgraded from an S8 and I am more than happy! The build quality is excellent, the display is fantastic and the performance is so good. For me, battery life is great - easily better than my old S8. Most nights I have around 50% battery remaining and around 3 hours of SOT, which I think is pretty good considering the screen resolution, size and capabilities of this phone. All in all, 10/10!
Ashan, 26 Apr 2019Does any one facing a proximity sensor issue on s10 ?? Any solutions?? Yes, I am having some issues with Proximity Sensor. It not quite often but it happens. To me, sometimes, when I am calling any number, it turns off the display even when it on my hand held if front of me.
This is a bit annoying.
