Return of the MAXX!
Return of the Android
This seems to be a natural occurring thing these days. I will never give up this phone! Well in a few months for the maxx hd
Don't get me wrong, the original Maxx is an awesome awesome phone. But I think the signal "issues" on the S3 are blown way out of proportion, and are being heavily influenced by "tradition" - i.e. Samsung's radios suck, I have an S3 that dropped 4G a couple of times... BAM, just another crappy Samsung radio. Get a few of those on the forums and tech blogs, and it feeds right back into that "tradition", which further balloons the problem. Meanwhile, the other 29.9 million S3 users are perfectly happy with their phones
edit: I'm also not saying that the S3 hasn't had any signal issues, just FWIW

I totally agree. I've had my S3 for a little over a month and I don't have any problems with data loss are dropped phone calls. In fact it holds data better then the razr I upgraded from.Originally Posted by jntdroid
It wasn't so much the data connection that was the problem for me, it was actual signal quality. I have a home business along with selling phones at Costco, so I need to reception that Motorola gives me. My house is a dead zone on every carrier and just about every brand of phone. I've personally had Nokia, Blackberry, HTC, and now Motorola and they've all had problems, but Samsung was the worst for signal quality. I've had AT&T, T-Mobile, and now Verizon, and my mom has Sprint. Experienced the same thing on each carrier. I thought I could get over the lack of signal but in the end, it's a phone first and foremost, and if I cannot make a call in my own home/place of business, then what is the point of keeping said phone?
