Sitting side by side with my bionic. Bionic=4-5 bars ; nexus =0-1 bars. How is that possible? Is this a software or hardware issue on the nexus? Should i be concerned ? Is this a bug that can be fixed. Thoughts?
Does this mean my battery life will suffer as a result. Sinve it is always working harder to get a signal ? Call quality is fine and no data drops. Just concered in rural areas will it be searching for service while my bionic would have service.
Hard to beat motorolas radio. I have a galaxy tab for work and a xoom that I own. Side by side the xoom always has 20 - 40 db better reception with wifi and cell. I think that is the reason the xoom gets better battery life too.
Sounds to me as though an exchange would not help. The issue seems pretty widespread. Seems as everyone is having the same low signal problem. Just wondering if it could be resolved with a software update or if it is the hardware and in that case it is what it is. No resolution possible. ???
I understand that Motorola radios are better than samsungs. I get that. But if thats true, then why are my Samsung charge and motorola bionic very close as far as signal strength goes but the nexus is not even in the same ballpark. There shouldnt be that much of a difference. Especially since the charge and bionic are very comparable. Moto vs sammy in that comparison. Just seems as though its a issue with the nexus.
Bionic and nexus been side by side all day. Bionic says time without signal 7% . Nexus says time without signal 68% !!! That is just crazy. These phones have been within 10 feet of each other all day. Quite a difference.
you have to remember the charge at first was not the best with signal and through updates it got better. The radio can be fixed via software and most likely will see at least one more update to help with signal.
I am in a pretty good 4g area, I will report once I get the phone, because I am coming from a Razr. I am sure if there are radio problems, google will fix it. It is too important of a phone to not be taken care of.
so like i said i am on the edge of the network so radio signal is very important to me and i got the phone specifically for 4g because i cant get any other internet service either. would you keep the nexus and hope for an update or swap for a moto?
