    Default Signal/Reception problems on Galaxy S4 Google Edition?

    Anyone here had any decrease in signal/reception strength when switching to the S4 GPe and running on AT&T?

    I used to have 4/5 LTE bars in my home constantly on my iPhone 5 but now I only get 3 bars top (usually only get 1 or 2 bars indoors). I have switched to the correct LTE plan and got the appropriate SIM card, plus I have factory reset my phone but nothing has worked. Any help would be appreciated. I just hope that I don't have to return the phone. Thanks

    Different phones use different algorithms to determine the number of bars. I'd really only be worried if you are losing signal in places where you did not before, as in dropped calls or loss of access to data, or if you are running an app that shows true signal strength on both phones.

    you should be comparing speed rather than bars... run a speed test on either phone.... what APN setting did you use?
