    Does LTE on the iPhone 5 affect the call reception? In other words would I get less dropped calls with an iPhone 5?

    Imo: As more areas get Lte and people get Lte phones, the HSPA network should be less congested. HSPA is used for voice (and non-lte data).

    Another observation of mine is that the iPhone 5 has better reception compared to my 4S just about everywhere.

    I will second that. I have noticed dramatic improvement in my call reception moving to the 5 over my old one. Previously I would always use a land line when one was available vs cell, but now I never look as every call on my 5 to date has been crystal clear.
