Don't know if this problem is solved, but worth trying - Armbian will bring you much further. Also further than Ubuntu 16.04 on your PC in term of hw support.

I just assembled my NEO2 Metal Complete Kit. Everything went great, but for my application, DietPi is a better fit, so I immediately re-flashed the microSD card with Stretch.

Poor customer service. Is it? I am among few people that provide free support (I pay from my own pocket to save "you" days-weeks-months of your time and you give virtually nothing in return) for Armbian "customers" and people also (dare to) contact me directly all the time. 99% ...

How do you power your board? Did you try to run Armbian? https://www.armbian.com/nanopi-neo-core-2-lts/ I've tried different board connections.

How do you power your board?

Ok, I wrote the armbian image to a separate SDHC card. I'm still getting garbage though. I just tried 115200 speed. I'm getting the same junk I got with the original image. I have verified the image and mounted the fs to check I wrote it correctly on my main computer. By: screen /dev/ttyUSB0 115200...
Do the same with Armbian and it will work out of the box. In fact there are two serial consoles along with getty running by default. One is accessible via 4 pin connector, the other via mUSB. Both are configured with the same speed.

On stock images you will need to enable all this on your own.
Addition: after I realized that my dtb experiments may have led to some hardware misbehavior (I'm new to all that device-tree madness and have not got the very ideology) I obviously started over with a fresh install. 5 reboots and we're broken again.

Yes, last 22 years I was using self-made images only on x86. Current servers have only 2.5 years uptime. But these boot issues actually can be problems of the board. Look: There are people that runs Armbian wit years of up time. https://forum.armbian.com/search/?q=uptime&fromCSE=1 Those problem...

The bug is that armbian destroys the eMMC bootloader for some odd reason (ubuntu was doing just fine if we forget about the weird structure). Third or forth reboot it says can't find ext2 filesystem, but if i say bootz/boot it finds. Next times it refuses to boot at all. Foooock. SD card boots ok. ...
