Phones that are actually good for making calls

I'm having a hell of a time getting decent connections in our post-war concrete cage of an apartment complex. Wifi calling doesn't work as expected and we either miss calls or the other side doesn't hear us.

lg g6 and pixel on tmobile, any suggestions for upgrades?

Have it forwarded to Google Voice over wifi? I think you can even maybe set it so that it'd do that based on proximity (meaning when you're at home it'll do that, but when away it'd just work normally), but not sure.

Maybe get one of the phones that supports newer T-Mobile stuff (I've read that they activated some new band a couple years back I think that helped with signal inside buildings, and just recently activated some other band, but only some phones support it so far - I think the S9 being probably the most popular one).

Motorola was the rf king, not sure how good they are now that Lenovo is doing the design.

It's entirely possible you need an LTE signal booster, and/or T-Mobile simply doesn't have good enough coverage for their signal to penetrate the building.

Most of the other carriers offer a 14 or 30 day return period to "trial" the network.
