    Same here. Getting 30Mbps on 4G. 10 minutes later, in same place, it switches to H+ and 2Mbps. If I manually change to 4G in "Available Networks", it will work at 4G for another 10-15 minutes! Does anyone know how to force the OP5 to only use 4G. I tried "LTE only" in *#*#4636#*#* but then Text Messages never came through and it changed back to "TD-SCDMA/CDMA/UTMS" and H+ speeds!

    The bands on which 4G and 3G works are totally different...
    And most of the times your phone and the phone tower (base station) decides it for you if you should use 3G or 4G on the basis of signal strength and availability...
    Maybe all the available 4G slots are already used by other users...

    Hey Gopal, I would like to ask a question. I am using an Airtel 4G sim and I too have noticed the network drops frequently. It is very hard to even use the internet as I have to force it again and again and seriously it's irritating. I have 3 devices, OnePlus 3T, OnePlus 5 and a Samsung Galaxy S7. I've used that sim in all these devices and came to a result that OnePlus device mobile network stability is weak as the network drop was barely there on my Galaxy S7. Samsung was doing the job really good. Why so ? As you also know that OP5 has a better processor so it should be doing a better job than the S7. Mentioning the software versions, OP3T (OOS 5.0.1), OP5 (OOS 5.0.2), S7 (Android 7.0). Do you have any answer ?

    There is a app called 'network' , you can force the phone to select a specific service , Suppose you have selected 'LTE Only', then if you go to an area with no 4G coverage then there will be no signal.

    use this link download and try the app (no root required)

    Caution :- only select the required network mode from the drop-down list. don't use any other functions if you don't know about them.

    I don't think that is the case regarding the 4G slots as it is only happening with my OP5 and never with my iPhone 6.
    I'm in a 4G area with Excellent coverage both inside and outside - according to the Vodafone 4G map.
    I was just asking if there was some way of setting LTE permanently on the OP5.
    I went into the settings and selected "LTE only" and the phone stayed on 4G all morning (27mbps).
    Powered off phone and back on again and its back at H+ (2Mbps).
    I just don't want to have to set "LTE only" every day!

    Network maps give an ideal case measure, take for example anfield stadium, here in Liverpool ,it has great coverage but come match day with 60k football fans and it goes to shit. Networks also have the ability to prioritise certain groups of customers so it's not inconceivable that iPhone users are advantaged by your ISP over us plebs.
