Well does anyone else have this same problem? My Droid X was just as good as the RAZR which is as you can see way better than my GNexus, think I should take it into Verizon and try to get them to swap it for a replacement?

I can provide a few more numbers. I live in San Luis Obispo, CA and we have pretty good 4G strength (as per a smaller market area). I was in the verizon corporate store and checked out signal strengths on all their 4G phones, as my GNex is suffering from the signal woes we all seem to be having. The droid razr clocked in at 55db, LG revolution at 60dbm, bionic at 68dbm and LG charge (by samsung) at 71dbm. There has to be something up with the quality of samsung radios as the charge was the crappiest of the bunch. That is, until I checked out my GNex, the instore one and the service clerks as well; everyone of these phones was at 75db-78dbm. This is unacceptable for a phone with such a high premium, with such terrible battery life and such touted specs. I have until the 15th to decide weather to keep mine or not. Dont get me wrong, I love the form factor, OS, screen and even the "lackluster camera" (its no lag shutter is amazing). Poor battery is one thing, but their clearly is a signal issue and Verizon dubbing it as a cosmetic defect of a faulty signal indicator is BS. Also the reboots which I and others have been experiencing: un-F'ing-acceptable! Dont know if I trust them to "fix it" or just keep it under wraps so they dupe more saps into buying it. I have been waiting for this phone since CES last year. 4.0.3 better come out before the 15th, and it better fix all of these horrible problems, as, I really dont wanna return it and have to pay a 15% restock fee for something that is defective.
I'm sure it's a software fix but there is a problem with the Radio.
I am not getting as good of a wi-fi signal in my house as I did with the Bionic or the OG Droid.
