We know how much you like to stream, ahem, "videos", and so cellular data is mega-important. Rate this thread to express how you think the OnePlus 8 Pro's LTE performs. A higher rating indicates that it's fantastic: throughput is excellent and signal strength is top-notch.

Then, drop a comment if you have anything to add.

Definitely worse range and mobile data speed on T-mobile Poland than in my previous Huawei P20 Pro.

I have really big problems with the 4G Connectivity. Nearly no connection (0.8 Mbits) inside the house next to the open window. No problems before with my OP3T

From the beginning of using the phone, I have a problem with cyclical signal loss when I try to call someone or when someone tries to call me. I get a message that my SIM card is missing.
Interestingly, it happens just like I have the LTE signal turned on. When trying to establish a connection, LTE changes to 3G and it is at this point that the signal disappears, and then returns spontaneously after about 5 -10 seconds.

If I force the use of 3G, the connections work fine.

I tried to reset to factory settings, changed the SIM card between trays 1 and 2. I reset network settings. Unfortunately, nothing helps.

The only thing I haven't done yet is to exchange the card with the operator, but I treat it as a last resort. I do not believe that this was a physical malfunction of the card, because on the previous phone there were no problems.

It annoys me so much that I feel like throwing this phone out the window...

I feel that this phone's cellular performance is worse than that of my OnePlus 7T. I live in a shallow canyon and have not the greatest reception, however with this phone I frequently get "Mobile network not available" when sitting in my living room, which I don't recall experiencing with the 7T.

My data speeds on T-Mobile 5g in Illinois are 25% what they were (25mbs vs 100mbs) on the 7t Mcclaren

For me in Lake Charles,La it has been great. The 5g dl speeds aren't that much faster than lte but the upload speed is. What's really nice coming from PixelXL3 is like when I'm in the bathroom at work before I would barely get a signal if any, and now it's almost like I'm outside & signal is good. Thankfully T-Mobile has just been improving and improving the last few years.
