Maybe you can take your HTC One out of the Otterbox and see if you have the same problem. The YouTube video I quoted earlier would show you how to try to reproduce the problem:

Please post your finding. Thank you.
Low and behold, I have it too. I probably never paid attention as there is no 4g in my area and my signal isn't always great. Mine was usually around 2 and I always hold the phone that way. I removed the case, held from the top and signal went to between 4 and 5 bars. Great, now what do I do lol. I purchased the phone thru Newegg. do you think a Sprint store would work with me? I have owned it for a couple months. Thanks
