    I keep reading complaints about about the radio quality of samsung phones. I'm considering ordering the S3, are the samsung radios really any worse or are complaints about the same on all brands? I'm still on original droid, is it not bound to be better?

    In general Samsung radios are weaker than Motorola.

    I've owned both a Droid Charge and Currently a Galaxy Nexus and I have had no signal problems with either device.

    Motorola in general has better and more consistent radios. Samsung is not bad but sometimes there are issues that take a while to fix as with almost anything. (Recent Galaxy Nexus fix)

    I've had a Samsung Fascinate for the past 18mos and have had no problems at all with call quality.
    I know the Nexus has had its problems, but both the original GalaxyS & the Galaxy S2 have had great radios/call quality.

    Thanks, that makes me feel better. So any issues would be software as opposed to hardware problems? I don't really like this pre-order stuff.

    How are the speakers generally? I occasionally play music without headphones and love trapster which, along with gps, needs to be louder to be heard over the radio

    I had 2 different Fascinates for almost 2 years (upgraded today to the RAZR Maxx) and Motorola absolutely has better radios and call quality.

    The reception Quality is so bad on my nexus indoors that I am seriously considering bringing my og droid from out of semi retirement ( The wife currently uses it like a wifi ipod touch), reactivating it and killing the nexus.

    It's a great ipod touch for her and I can get my reliable connection back that I had with my OG.

    My new motto as said in other threads - Never Samsung Never again.

    I'm the opposite after my original Droid. Never Moto again.

    I guess Moto has made drastic improvements over the last few years cause this right here is flawless.
