    I just ran across this article on the Nexus subreddit. If I'm reading it correctly, the two new Nexus phones may not be as good at grabbing and holding on to an LTE signal as the Nexus 6, 5X or 6P. Anyone with RF savvy want to correct this impression?

    The RF evolution/revolution of the HTC 2016 Nexus - S4GRU Sprint 4G Rollout Updates

    My old HTC M8 never seemed to have a problem with LTE or WiFi, so it won't take much to convince me that I'm misreading the data in the article.

    Assuming all of those figures are accurate it appears the new nexus phones have slightly less maximum uplink power than the current nexus phones. It shouldn't be an issue because the new nexus numbers are very similar to the HTC10 which doesn't have any significant signal strength issues (that I have read about).

    This is most likely just the fact that different manufacturers use different suppliers for their LTE chips. Whether for cost or for preference I'm not entirely sure.

    Either way the only way this type of thing would affect you is if you live an extreme distance from any cell towers, since of course you need to use more power to connect at a greater distance.

    I just think it's people nitpicking, the phones isn't released yet and HTC really doesn't have signal issues.

    If the radios didn't work well carriers would not be supporting them. They test these things pretty rigourously before selling a device.

    I'm pretty sure this is not an issue in the slightest.

    Well ATT didn't sell the htc 10 at all and T-Mobile stopped selling it after 2 months.

    That's not surprising since the technology ATT and T-Mobile use for their network is weak to begin with.
