    I looked at that app in the playstore, however comments say it's not working on Huawei phones, so I didn't get it.
    As I mentioned in my post there is a free version (SignalCheck Lite https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ignalchecklite) so it wouldn't cost anything to try out.

    It works fine on my Huawei-made Nexus 6P but perhaps it has issues with the Kirin processor. Hard to say.

    Anyway, the other app that I mentioned is GSam Battery Monitor Pro https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...amlabs.bbm.pro (there's also a free version of that) which will allow you to get a feel for your signal strength over time. That might be more useful to see your overall signal quality as you go about your day.(Note that it requires you to use ADB to enable extended battery stats for this feature to work. It's pretty easy to do and is well documented in the app.)

    Unfortunately that data point is useless since you have absolutely no signal at all. If that's the norm at that particular location then it's time to get a different device or to get your carrier to fix something at their end. If it happens to be at your house you could ask about a network extender.

    That's exactly my point, no signal on the V20 and have signal on the Mate 9. Same carrier sim in both and side by side on the sofa table.
    My original post was simply to add to the"weak V20 signal" thread.
    I also have a Xperia XZ and it gets some signal about the same as the Mate 9.

    I retired and moved to the Philippines in 2015 so signal strength and quality, especially out in the provinces is not great. I have wifi in the house so it's only a little bit of a pain inside. SMS is still very popular here because data is relatively expensive.
    Outside it's not really a problem, usually. My house sits about 1/3 the way down a hill so that certainly is the main reason for the lack of signal strength here.
    Anyway out of the 3 phones that I currently have and the various phones of friends here, the V20 has the worst reception.

    My VZW V20 gets the best reception of any phone I've ever owned. I can use internet in big box stores where my Note 3 was useless. I was in a restaurant using twitter where my friend's iPhone 6 had no reception. Never dropped a call anywhere. Unless you live an a terrible cell area you have a bad phone or bad sim card.

    Which model of the V20 do you have?
    You can use something like DevCheck https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...flar2.devcheck to get the specifics (look on the System tab).
