Was Google wrong to redo how bars are displayed?

So I think signal seems better since the update but I do have one issue... My bars are showing much higher than before on the same dbm

A little research has confirmed that this was done to standardize the bars display on our phones.

Fine.

The problem is that now 4g bars are less useful than before IMO. I have only had decent signal since the update but I think you should only see full bars when signal is PERFECT.

Does anyone have any insight on this?

Note: I do appreciate that our phones are still among the LTE phones that display signal in Dbm appropriately when we look in our status menus As opposed to a lot of other LTE phones that are showing the 3g dbm even when LTE is active.
