Worse than my old phone on Sprint.
Same as my old phone on Sprint.
Better than my old phone from Sprint.
It's so bad that I am thinking of returning it.

I have 2 Evo 3d's here and walking around my house side by side with an OG Evo the evo 4g definetly gets better signal. I would say on average 1-2 bars better although sometimes all 3 phones are equal but not usually. I haven't gone into any service menus to check but that's just for looking at the signal meter on the notification bar.

Evo 3d Cell reception
Needing to know how the new radio cell reception is doing on the evo 3d compared to the evo? I dont get a very good signal at work and opted for the evo because it actually picked up better cell reception then the samsung epic. Some initial reports are saying the cell reception is terrible on the evo3d, heres hoping its just as good as the old evo.. Let me know thanks

Have it side by side with my original and they're both showing the same bars on 3G and 4G. No signal strength issues here, then again I always have great coverage in NYC. I believe the couple of reviews that stated poor signal issues were just in bad Sprint coverage areas. Have no call quality issues either, both the earpiece and speakerphone seem on par with the original. And people I've spoken with say I didn't sound any different.

Better than my NS4G, In my office I use to get 1 bar of 3g and no 4g, I now get 2 bars of 3g and 1 bar of 4g. Over all I get better reception every where then my NS4G. We will see what happens when they release an update for the signal issue with the NS4G. Another note is that my Wifi signal is also much better than the NS4G.

Re: Call quality and signal strength
I had no problem last night driving up in Cleveland last night. I called the other driver 4 times, using mix of earpiece and speaker phone. Sounded good. He said I sounded good and clear.as well. Truck noise wasn't a problem.
Note: 4G-WiMax is Kicking quite well up in the Clevland area. 5-8.5Mbps I tested Several time used 4 different programs at each spot. All similar results. Strongsville had good results as well. Now I have to test here in Pittsburgh after I wake up. I get fair to poor signal in my place, 1 foot old brick walls.
Maybe 2 fluke results happened.
3G was just as good as it is( or should I say was) on my Hero. One spot in Amherst, Oh I can break over 2Mbps on both phones. Docked behind a shopping center.

Re: Call quality and signal strength
it feels like it gets a much better signal than my epic ever did, will take time to see if this is actually true, still haven't tried it at work (which seems to be located in some kind of black hole based on how hard its been to get phones to get good signal)
