This isn't a house in the middle of town on flat land. Reception here is tougher than it sounds so it's easy to see where a slight tweak in coverage would affect us drastically. This seems more feasible than that all three of our devices are SO horrible that we go from reception to barely a single bar. I can see where a bad device can cause a bar of difference but I'm not buying a three or four bar difference due to device. That device would never even make it to market.
We had a Moderator a couple of years ago from Colorado with a Galaxy Nexus that was all but useless because of lack of signal. After switching to a Motorola Droid Razr, a lot of her issues fixed. You'd be amazed how much of a difference the phone can make. Motorola makes the best in the business and Samsung has continued to show that they use bad CDMA radios and has for a while. So it doesn't surprise me anymore to hear of people having problems with signal strength on CDMA Samsung phones.
