When you call granny, does she keep saying "Huh?! Wut?!" or does the conversation flow pretty well? Rate this thread to express how you feel about the 's call quality. A higher rating indicates that calls are clear and crisp, and that regardless of background noise, you can hear the other party clearly (and with ample volume) and they can hear you.

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

- WiFi calling sounded really bad. Was told I sounded like I was under water.
- VoLTE sounded not as bad. QWas told I sounded like I was on the radio in the 80's.
- CDMA old school regular network sounded amazing.

Not sure why I'm not having success with these "upgraded" calling techniques. But, whatever, CDMA it is.

I haven't talked to anyone on WiFi, but one thing, signal didn't drop in some areas here that other devices always drop out on

I've been told that on speakerphone, I sound awful. Muffled and underwater sounding. Apparently, when holding the phone instead, I sound fine.

I haven't had any complaints with speakerphone on WiFi calling and mobile network. My phone is on Sprint.

Overall I was told I sounded clear over WiFi and also while on speaker phone however when I was in the car on speaker phone someone did say it sounded funny (I was kind of fidgeting and holding the phone weird though)

The weird thing is that video and audio recordings sound fine. I just seem to have trouble with speakerphone. Someone on Reddit who seems to be having similar issues to me speculated that it's aggressive microphone noise cancellation on calls, which I guess could possibly be the case. I just tried calling a landline on speakerphone and it sounded fine, but this is a different environment (quiet office as opposed to city apartment) compared to where I usually have had problems. It happens for me with both Wifi Calling on and off, and with speakerphone off it sounds fine, so it doesn't seem to be a signal issue.

Call quality is really nice with Verizon!
I don't like Verizon but the HD voice is what it is

No issues here in UK with Three. I now have WiFi calling, something I missed with my Pixel 2 XL. HD calling is superb, loud and crisp 👌🏻
