I'm facing 4G connections issue on my home environment.
4G LTE and 4G LTE-A is available at my home area. You may check it here.
The address is Jalan Anggerik Villa 2/1, 43500 Semenyih.
I'm able to connect to 4G at my home, but the problem is, once a CALL has been made (in/out), my data connection will changed to E, and it will never gets to 4G again.
I've tried mobile restart, wifi connect/disconnect, network provider scan, turn off mobile data and turn on, all doesn't connects me back to 4G connection. (FYI, I'm using Samsung Galaxy Note 5, with Android 6.0.1)
It would required me to go to another place (like driving to the an area that connects me to 4G), after I get the 4G connection at another area, and come back to my house, it will stays with 4G, but once a call has been made, it changed to E again.
It's quite a frustrating issue as I mostly using my mobile data at home.
Why is this happening?
Why it connects to E while 4G is available?

I've thought about it, but it wasn't the Android problem after a few tests.
I've tested at a few locations, Eg. I made a lot of calls at my office area (Sungai Besi), and it doesn't have the problem like I mentioned above.
I Googled as per your opinion, and found out that the problem that users claims is that they do not have the 2G/4G connections, http://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_galaxy_note5_duos-reviews-7508.php
But what I facing is slighty different with what they had, I have the 4G connections, which is stable 4G on my working places area but not my home area.
Anyway, thanks for your opinions =)

@Five1z, telcos in Malaysia does not have VoLTE yet, that would mean that all voice calls will require the phone to drop the LTE connection and switch to 2G/3G. VoLTE is expected to be available on Digi by this year.
Looks like your device have a handover issue where it refuses to switch back to LTE after a call has completed. Untested on Note 5, what if you go to *#*#4636#*#* and select LTE band only? Please remember to switch back to the default option as no phone calls would be possible if you switch to LTE band only (due to absence of VoLTE at the moment).
