    Hello, I own iPhone 7 matte 128GB and 6S (ios 10).

    The first thing I noticed when I inserted my sim card (used to be in my iPhone 6S) - too poor connection. 3 out of 5 antennas.

    Then I turned the LTE on - 2 out of 5 antennas.

    Next, I insert my sim to my old 6S - 5 out of 5.

    I put my sim back to my iPhone 7 and try to send an SMS - 5 out of 5. But after 10 sec it's 2 out of 5 again. LTE is on.

    Is it a defect?

    I'm not a big phone talker, but my wife is and she maintains that the quality and reception of her AT&T iPhone 7 isn't the same as the 6.

    Not a defect in its purest meaning.

    What model phone are you using...is it the AT&T, Verizon, TMobile, or Sprint?

    Oh, I am not from the US. But the issues are pretty much the same. So, this is sooo annoying.
