Are signal issues a problem with the Rezound (like the Gnex)?

    As you guys probably know, many of us with the Galaxy Nexus have been plagued with signal issues etc. I'm considering trading my Gnex for a Rezound because I need a phone that is dependable. With my original Droid I never had a single signal issue and it's everyday with my Gnex. I've even have dropped calls and poor phone connection with my Gnex that I never had before with my original Droid.

    A friend of mine has the Rezound and he loves it and never has network connectivity issues or problems with calls etc. Are you guys hearing many complaints about poor call quality or signal issues with the Rezound or has it been pretty solid?

    It's possible that I got a bad phone, but I only have one chance at trading it in and I don't want to risk getting another Gnex with the same issues.

    I have both g-nex&rezound.lam having signal reception issues with g-nex. I like both phones, but if issues are not addressed before my return period, I will send g-nex back. 0 issues with rezound. Hope this helps.

    "0" reception issues with my Rezound as well. Had a panic though back when Verizon was having network issues. Thought for a minute it might be the phone. I was happily surprised when I discovered the problem was on their end and not with the phone.

    Thanks guys... Grayson I feel the same way, I can't keep the Gnex if it's not reliable. My friend with the Rezound is able to keep a great signal and internet connection all around town and I'm constantly having issues.

    I have no reception in my home with g-nex. I have owned x x2 thunderbolt g-nex& rezound. Only one that has not got great reception is g- nex. I hope this is a software not hardware issue&it is fixed before Jan15. Having a phone that does not work in my home is a deal breaker for me.

    that is a feature of Ice Cream Sandwich which the REzound should get in Q1 2012. for now you have the usual hold press on the home button and it will bring up your last used apps. but it's not like the ICS multitasking where you can swipe to close running apps.

    No issues here. I see the same signal strength as I do on my flip phone. Though I wish it would flip between 3 and 4g faster

    as a comparison, my Incredible could barely get 1 bar at work if I stood on my head wearing a tinfoil hat. My Rezound in the exact same spot get a beautiful signal AND stream perfect 4G!!! I have never had a phone that gets this good reception.

    As I said in other posts, I use g-nex& resound and ilike both phones but Iam concerned about the reception on the g-nex. Iam thinking the rezound is the best phone to get out of the box. Iam amazed that I have had not one issue with it. I hope reception issues get addressed with g-nex, but I have reservations about that I use both phones for work & can't have one that does not work . I don't root or mod my phones. I don't think you should have to do this for them to work right.

    A number of people who have taken time to test and measure both (me included) have found that the nexus does well in strong signal areas but does poorly when the signal is weak. I couldn't see any difference between the two when measuring dbms in 3g when the signal was strong bit once you got near -97 or so the gnex fell off the cliff and battery life and reception became unworkable. The Rezound performs much better with these signals.

    Iam right outside of Charlotte n.c.& have strong 4g in my area. Right now I have no reception on gnex& full reception on rezound. I don't think this is a Verizon issue. I think it is the phone&I have grave concerns over this getting fixed.

    Had the nexus, returned it for the rezound. Nexus had too many reception issues. Zero problems with the rezound.

    My friends Rezound gets prefect reception in areas that are pretty spotty down here usually.

    I suggest anyone who has a gnex or is thinking about getting this phone to read the post in gnex forum on verizons reasons for not giving a replacement&update timeframe. This put the last nail in the gnex coffin for me. My gnex will be going back today. I posted this here because I have both rezound& gnex.

    I was the first one at my Verizon store to purchase the GN and the first to return it as well. As bad as I wanted to keep the GN I couldn't deal with no data access and Verizon was no help. So I took it back for the Rezound and I believe this is the best phone I've ever owned. I get 4g in areas I never had before with my charge and I'm loving the UI of this phone as well.

    I just don't understand this fanboy response to the gnex. The Rezound is such an awesome phone it should be leading vzw into the new year!

    I have had my REZOUND for a month now, and never had any data issues. The transitions from 3g to 4g and back have been flawless. I love this phone. Glad I did not wait for the Nexus.
