    There is no doubt that radio updates needed crash logs confirm it.
    I have great radio performance but found when testing next to EVO driving around Virginia Beach it wasn't as great as I thought.
    EVO signal was better then are toy especially when it came to weak signal areas ET4G lost signal all together.
    EVO Data speeds were faster as well.

    Bottom line
    If your in good coverage radio issue wont hit you everything seems swell. ,
    If your in bad coverage with lots of tower hand off ET4G is going to give you problems.

    As far as update I'm thinking it will come pretty soon due to Sprint confirming issue.

    I'm keeping mine to. The EVO used during testing was my brothers.
    Signal strength in my area is strong for the most part data speeds acceptable.
    Radio update will be nice though increasing data speed

    Run a few games for awhile and watch it close on you randomly. Then report back about not having a problem.
    Ive been playing games like drag racing without any issues and for hours at a time. Might want to take it back for am exchange as it sounds like your ram is dumping when under too much of a load.

    Since this is Samsung we're talking about, the first update should be about a month after the Moon crashes into the Earth.

    I downloaded and played Symphony of Eternity and no crashes or lag... Granted it was for only 5 mins to test it out but playing third blade it would crash after 1 min or less. Maybe theirs a clash with the high speed games. Cut the rope plays no problems over half an hour. could be the Exynos chip is finicky and they need more time to work out the kinks for these games...

    Great attitude....

    And nobody else breaks things with updates eh?

    Can you say HTC EVO GINGERBREAD UPDATE? It broke more than it fixed....and I'm betting you figure that was Samsungs fault as well right?

    Ugh...that Evo Gingerbread update was awful. The phone went from a stable beast of Android goodness to a phone that couldn't get me to lunch without needing to be plugged in. I was impressed with the speed that Moto pushed out an update to fix the problems with the Photon, but even that created issues were my phone needed to be rebooted constantly. I'm not having any deal breaker problems so I don't mind waiting for a stable update that addresses some of the issues people are having.

    Never people....

    Its Samsung!

    Can you really expect more of them?

    One would hope so. If it's like their other devices you are all doomed when it comes to updates. I am however glad many of you are happy with your phones, as is!

    I read these Android Central and Phandroid forums, and see a lot of posts of people returning the phone due to poor signal, and dropped WiFi signals, etc...They all say they love the device, the best smartphone they have ever owned, but because of the bad radio they are not keeping it.

    Would an update even fix these issues ? Or did Samsung use a bad/old radio to begin with, and this can't be fixed ?

    Probably fixable via a firmware update, once they work out why it's only affecting certain customers. But I have to ask, did you even read my post above? You do realize that tons of people have no signal issues at all right? You also realize that YOU "could" be one of these people, and that you have 14 days to find out? Still, I'd read what I said towards the end of my post above. You're just spinning in circles my friend.
