It was not long ago that we wondered at the new technological wonder in the world of smartphone connectivity, that is LTE 4G. It can indeed provide amazing speeds to which we sooner or later get so accustomed that take it for something granted. But though the LTE 4G technology is the same in all smartphones, the connection strength can differ due to the difference of smartphones. In this case, the 4G connectivity comparison of different popular brands is helpful.
If you are an owner of one of these three smartphones — the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, the Motorola DROID RAZR and the HTC Rezound, then the following information will be interesting to you. These three devices were compared as to their 4G signal strengths. The Samsung Galaxy was previously reported to have signal issues in this regard, so these tests came particularly on time to see whether it is in any sense true. Compared with the two other mentioned phones, the Samsung Galaxy got the last place with -108 dBm result, while the RAZR got -85 dBM and the Rezound -82 dBM. The 26 dBm difference the Galaxy has seems to be alarming and can conform that indeed this phone suffers from some antenna malfunction.
In addition, a speed test on Ookala Speed revealed again the Galaxy Nexus loses to the HTC Rezound in the first place with 8.44 Mbits down and 3.51 Mbits up result. The DROID RAZR was in the second place with 7.35 Mbits up and 3.25 Mbits up. And finally the Galaxy Nexus got the last place again with 5.65 Mbits down and 2.43 Mbits up connectivity. With this result, we hope Samsung will roll out adequate updates to smooth these issues if it still wants one of its favorite handsets to stay on the top.
