How are voice calls when using LTE?

DvdscottDvdscott Posts: 2FreedomPop Newbie
I am considering upgrading to a Galaxy S3 or 4 because they have LTE which my S2 doesnt get. My S2 has ok call quality but I cant make out everything the other person says aftet a while.

How is the call quality of the S3 or S4 when using LTE compared to regular 4g WiMax on the S2?

    I have a Victory. I have heard in strong WiMAX radio field, calls are great. Weak not so hot.

    On my Victory, calls are great! With strong & medium LTE signals. But boy!! In weak areas the called person roars that they can't understand hardly any words at all. My LTE, and others upload speed is so pitiful that the talking is hurt bad. But download is not weak enough to send you back to 3G.

    You can definitely tell the difference between 4GLTE and 3G or even regular 4G, it's clearer and you get fewer dropped calls.

    @Rich Sias ( LastDay: 16th )
    Happy Thanksgiving!!!

    Are you still doing all your testing? I wonder why lte is getting such a bad rap...Your not the only one complaining of weak signals...I just leave all my phones on 3g, and we have great call quality....But I also live in Seattle. I am sure its different where ever you live. I am also sure it depends on the phone. My 3g Iphone 4s, sounds way better than the kids HTC evo 4g on 4g...(both with optimal signal)---I am getting a LTE phone in the next few days....Just haven't decided yet--->>>but its for the kids(I'll hit you up on the call quality after)

    I get awesome quality on LTE, and on 3G quality sounds like a normal phone from Verizon or Sprint.

    @njfulwider5‌ I stopped using Bria last week since texts didnt go thru, so I used the FP regular app and quality is good. Its on an iPhone though, and I guess since FP iPhone is based off of linphone which is higher quality than android's csipsimple thats why I get good speeds.
