LG G2 Signal Bars
Is it correct that the signal strength bars for the LG G2 on android 4.2.2 are solely for voice? The reason I ask is that I have one bar there (next to the 4G indicator). Using an app called Open Signal, my dBm is at -68, which I would think is close to max bars. Using another app called Network Signal Info, it shows my LTE dBm as -117. This is consistent with my old Samsung Droid Charge, where I could see both an EVDO and LTE dBm, which had those two values.
I also use a Wilson Signal Boost DT. That seems to make a big difference for my voice dBm, but has no impact on my LTE, which makes sense. In terms of real world performance, I experience dropped calls and sometimes have long delays to dial out. This is all from my home office.
Can anyone clarify what exactly is supposed to indicate my voice call quality? I would think the -68 dBm represents it, but my signal strength only shows one bar, and frankly, my real world performance feels like one bar (to make things more complicated, my old Droid Charge shows 3 bars with the same dBm levels). How the heck should I interpret everything? I also have a metric called 1X Signal Strength on my old Charge that shows -54 dBm.
