    Default Quick and dirty Wifi signal test

    Quick and dirty Wifi signal test-wifi-test.jpg

    Pretty close at closer range, but I think the N4 edges it out at a distance. (This was with my fancy new router, too.)

    Looks good. I've always been suspicious of my Galaxy Nexus's wifi abilities.

    Oh thank goodness - the Nexus S is horrendous at Wi-Fi reception, so it seems to be a Samsung trait to use poor-gain antennas. Looking forward to this improvement! Let's hope that RSSI on the graph translates to usable throughput at a greater distance though.
