Default [Radios] Request for GS4 owners coming from a GNex

Hi,

I'd like to request someone with a Galaxy Nexus on Verizon do a side by side (well, you'll have to pop the sim card out, but "side-by-side" meaning readings in the same spot) comparison of the radio signal levels with this app:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.cc.signalinfo&feature=search_result #?t=W251bGwsMSwyLDEsImNvbS5jYy5zaWduYWxpbmZvIl0.

It's a great way to see the real signal info, including SNR, etc. I'm VERY leery of a Samsung device after the Galaxy Nexus' terrible radio, and I'm hoping the S4 is better. But I'm hoping to see some proof it's better before I consider buying one (especially since I'll be buying full retail to keep unlimited data).

So for you GNex owners out there who are getting an S4 - would you be so kind as to post a screen shot of that app on both phones in the same spots? Preferably in a weaker signal area (but still on 4G or somewhere the GNex flips between 3G and 4G) and a stronger signal area?

Thanks in advance!
