Had my Nexus a few days and so far the connectivity has been pretty darn good.
My Nexus currently shows a -79 1 asu
3G Droid X -63 0 asu.
Clearly the Samsung seems to have a weaker antennae then the Moto, but so far I haven't nitcied any negative effects.
I'm getting -100 dBm at work, which is a large metal building with lots of steel and concrete. Outside I get -96 dBm. Pretty sad if you ask me.
Please ignore the above post.
I am just trying to increase my post count.
Is everyone who's experiencing reception problems ACTUALLY experiencing real problems? I'm not trying to throw salt in any wounds here, but for the most part, everyone is just throwing out signal strength figures. Maybe VZW is right and there really is no problem...it just LOOKS like there's a problem. I just drove from blacksburg VA to Alexandria VA taking a bunch of country back roads I've never traveled before. Obviously I used my GPS on my brand new nexus! I hit many dead areas on 66 after I passed Charlottesville and got into the back country. I had zero bars of anything...forget about 4g. All I saw was a gray triangle. And not ONCE did I lose GPS and no I didn't pre download the map. So has everyone actually checked to see if the really even have a problem?

When I'm at work, the signal strength alternates between -120dBm 99asu and -100dBm 1asu.
This causes my battery to drain rapidly. And my pocket gets really warm to let me know my phone is sucking the battery dry.
If I didn't keep my phone plugged in at work, I wouldn't make it through half the workday without my phone going dead.
That is a problem.
