    Ok, this is a weird one, but I'm hoping someone out there has made this jump...

    My Story:
    I live in an area with generally piss-poor reception. My 5C does soldier on with 1 bar of LTE service which is just enough to use my data relativly normally and make phone calls if I hold the phone at just the right angle (lol).

    My wife's iPhone 6 is just terrible, her reception is much worse then my 5C, she misses phone calls all together and her data is much more spotty.

    For this reason, I've basicly stopped upgrading phones as I cant deal with any worse reception then what I have.

    My Question:
    Has anyone made the jump from a 5C to an SE and can comment on the reception differences? No difference, better, worse?

    Unless you're dead set on iOS have you considered trying out a few Android devices? Perhaps they would work better. Also different carriers?

    I never had an iPhone 5c, but my iPhone SE has been fine.
