So then I'm curious what they're next course of action is when I have full bars of 4G and get no connectivity? Oops? Wonk wonk wonk....
I'm curious about what kuuler said, and if that's the case, then cool, although that's a pretty sketchy design to have hardware performance based off of software. That's like newer cars that tell you how many miles you have left before empty. You can hit zero and still be fine, but what if the car just shut down once it hit zero? Instrumentation should dictate real world performance in nuclear reactors, but not phones.
I guess you can count me as comfortable with this change. I'm in NYC, so I haven't seen too many problems getting 4G when I ask for it, and the switchover from Wifi to 3G to 4G seems to work ok on my GNEX. I also get better response, signal wise, to 3G than I got with my prior device in the same locations, although the meter doesn't always show it.
Shouldn't there be a standard that all manufacturers should abide to?
I mean a direct relationship between Db and the number of bars presented on the display?
This way 3 bars mean -80Db to -95Db etc.....
i will also agree that this update will fix my nexus, i do not have a loss of service but i do only have 1-2 bars of 4g.
so the question is when?
This is like Deja vu for me. Same thing happened with the Fascinates radio. We all waited months and months and months for a software fix and when it came it didn't fix anything. I believe the radio hardware was just bad in that device. With the Bionic it was actually fixed for a lot of people with a software update, which took less than 2 months to arrive. I have zero connection issues with the Bionic now, the signal is quite strong.
Samsung is a very untrustworthy company in my opinion. I hope they don't promise you fixes for months that never come and that they used better radio hardware in the GNex.

Doesnt mean you will actually have full connectivity though. Verizon should bid this job out to meeeeeeee.....mwuahahahaha. Ill have the update later today not months lol.
I didn't see it posted, are they saying the Nexus is showing more bars then it should, or not enough?
Signal is good
I know my device shows no bars, yet I get good signal. This will just fix what I know to already be true.
