have they fixed the 4g outages yet??
I am experiencing data and cell reception issues
I am experiencing only data issues
I am experiencing only cell issues
Cant complain my nexus is working fine
Not in the Chicago suburbs, 4g and 3g are not connecting at all on the LTE network for 7 hours. 3g will only connect if manually switched to CDMA only mode and signal is spotty will connect to disconnect 10 minutes later. (all while I remain stationary)
most of the time i only get 3g....with my Rezound i would always atleast have 2 bars 4g....now thats its unlocked....i might just go back to the rezound
Nexus 7 2 4.3 PA
Unlocked and ROM'ed Note 3!!!!!
Wife's Razr routinely gets 1,500 kbps down CDMA while the GNex avgs 800 .
While 800 kbps down is not bad , especially compared to sprint which was lucky to hit 100 kbps down , it's frustrating that the Razr gets double the speed throughput.
We are near an LTE area but not usually. The few LTE tests I've been able to perform, results are similar.
The signal CDMA for the above results is usually around -68 db Razr, -70 db GNex.

Looking to replace my OG Droid. I'm still torn between the Razr and the Galaxy Nexus.
My OG has barely decent reception where I live. It's generally in the -88 to -98 range.
I compared my droid in a store with these two phones. Mind you the store had a repeater, so even my DROID got decent reception tHere. But the razr was actually about 5 or 10 better than mine aNd the gnex was about 5 or so worse.
So here is what I am looking at possibly
OG Droid -88 to -98
Razr -78 (at best) to -93
Gnex -93 to -105 (at worst?)
I love the fact that the Gnex is stock ICS, will be updated quicker, is easier to root/customize, seems to be supported by the droid community better.
But what are your thoughts on the reception?
Are these numbers decent enough to get the gnex? Or go safer with the razr?
Will these numbers improve with updates or anything?

I was very worried about reception issues when I bought my GN last week. So far, I haven't had any issues. I'm not trusting the stated reception level in the OS, but going by Speedtest.net results.
At my work, I only get 3G and my Speedtest results on the GN are actually quite a bit better than my OG Droid. As far as 4G goes, the GN does fairly well, but the Rezound (my wife has one) consistently beats it by quite a bit when it comes to raw speed. It certainly looks like the Rezound has a better LTE radio. Still, I get fast enough speeds with 4G that I don't really care.
I have to still test 3G on the Rezound v/s 3G on my GN.
