    This is a very legitimate question. Coming from the 6S Plus to the 7 Plus, I noticed some slight differences in signal strength in some of my frequently visited places. Not enough to put a damper on anything, but the difference is there. I don't use dots or bars. I keep my phone is field test mode for accurate signal strength.

    I get better reception on my S8 than I did on my 7 Plus. I'm not sure why.

    How do you put it in field test mode?
    Field Test Mode
    *3001#12345#*
    (Always show Decibels instead of Dots)

    If you want your iPhone to always display numerical signal strength instead of signal bars, you can perform the following process. Once in Field-test mode (accessed by entering and dialing the code above), hold down the power button until you see “Slide to Power Off”, then release it. Then hold the Home button until you’re returned to your main app screen. You’ll now see your numerical signal strength while you use your phone, and you’ll be able to tap the signal numbers to switch to signal bars, and vice versa. To exit this permanent field-test mode, simply reboot the phone or re-load Field Test Mode and exit it via the Home button.

    In short, yes it is. I love making payments on a phone that when on a call, people on the other end constantly complain of the reception.

    Sorry to hear, but I definitely can't say the same. My 7 Plus is on par with my 6s Plus and both had/has excellent reception. I'm usually on my iPhone with another 7 Plus user, and it's nice and clear using our Airpods. On the rare occasions when I actually put my iPhone to my ear it's also the same results, nice and clear. I'm using a BestBuy unlocked 256gb Jet Black 7 Plus with a Verizon sim card.

    For what's considered strong LTE service at my house. That's where most of my issues come from.

    "Excellent" reception? How many dots does your 7 Plus usually show for signal? How many did your 5s show?

    Yes , excellent reception. It's been my experience on the Verizon network that even with one dot I still get excellent reception. I average about four dots regularly.... Except my home office.. LOL

    Me too. I'll have 1 dot in my house, walk out my driveway, and I have 4 dots. Go figure.
