Same problem and fix here. "Network mode" choices offered to me are:

  • LTE/WCDMA/GSM (auto connect)
  • WCDMA/GSM (auto connect)
  • WCDMA only
  • GSM only

Obviously, LTE/WCDMA/GSM (auto connect) is the desired option, but it makes me drop network after a few hours. The only way to get the network back is to reboot the phone. WCDMA/GSM (auto connect) works fine without any issue so far. It does give me up to H+ which I perceive as fairly fast, so I will live with not having 4G until a fix is around - would still be appreciated. Remarkable that this issues seems thus to be attributed to the Android OS.

I have the phone for about 1 week now. Bought the phone for my wife, she is never going to notice not having 4G :* and she is very happy with it for all other use cases.
