    Anyone else remember when the Razr Maxx was dropping 4G and then a software update fixed it

    For me this phone is beast mode for signal. I get 4g at work where my note 3 would have nothing.

    Yes, I do remember that. A software tweak apparently resolved the issue. Everybody must remember and some have mentioned here, this is a brand new phone and there are always done fluky issues with a fraction of the production runs in the first batches. Also as Jackie points out, this could easily be a software issue. Let's wait and watch and see how this processes.

    For the record, I am at 2 bars 4G in my house where I often have only 1.

    I was at Verizon store last night and did a side by side speedtest on turbo and xperia. Even though turbo had lower ping, xperia had a lot faster speeds especially in upload. Used same server on both devices.

    Techies go into the stores and load up utilities and launchers to see how they look and run.

    Average Joe schmoe customers go into the stores and load up Angry Birds and take duck face selfies and set them as wallpapers.

    I wonder how many people look at a demo phone that someone like us has loaded up a launcher and set it as default and gets home and realizes their phone looks nothing like the one they looked at.

    If that isn't true lol. We go into the store telling the rep facts and they like "that is not on our facts sheet" and we like your fact sheet is wrong.
    If you have not corrected the store two at least once you are not a true techie.....

    Guys in my local store used to wait for me to come in and give them the lowdown on new and upcoming phones. Lol

    I would want that test run multiple times and swap phone positions to be sure it's not a fluke. It's very possible that the Xperia is faster on downloads.

    I have the Note 4 and am pretty happy with the signal strength though not why I'm writing.


    I was watching a comparison video between the Note 4 and the Turbo. Here is the link:

    At the 5 minute mark, there is a discussion about a 5db signal drop if you put your finger over the top of the Turbo. I tried it at the store and the same thing happened.

    As I said, I don't have a Turbo and reporting this as an objective observation. Not a Note 4 versus Turbo slam.
