Just want to promote discussion.
From all the smart phones I've owned (Droid 1, Droid 2, Droid Pro), one thing has been blatantly apparent, the signal strength of smart phones seems to be weaker than that of dumb phones.
Now I broke my Droid Pro yesterday (ripped LCD ribbon while replacing digitizer) and I've been using my old dumb Samsung SCH u740. One thing I've noticed was that the signal on this phone is remarkably stronger. I live in an area with weak reception, almost no 3G comes to my house (took a toll on my Droid's battery) and the 1X also very weak. My Droids would average 0-1 bars 1X and I would end up receiving texts either late and/or by bundles. I haven't had this problem on my SCH u740. I'm averaging 2 bars constant 1X and my texts come right on time.
I'm going to see the connection on my dad's Samsung Fascinate to see if its Motorola only, but what is YOUR experience with connection? Of course, 3G is faster, but how about your voice calls/texts?
I'm going to miss Android, downgrading to a cheap Blackberry (will let you guys know about connection on this phone) while waiting for the Galaxy S2 .
