Afraid not. I think we are going to have to wait until the next ics leak.

Thanks shoty. Interestingly check rom in the new change log still thinks kl1 gives a far superior battery. Personally I ditched this ages ago. Anyone share the kl1 love?

Thanks Shottie!

Early days, but LPH modem is looking good. A strong, consistent, signal.

Of course, for me, there is only one real life/usage test and that unfortunately entails me having to go to the, "Twilight Zone", public house, notorious for its lack of cell phone signal. In the interests of research, I will try and make the effort to carry out a series of comparison tests over the weekend.

Samsung should really thank you for the sacrifices you have to make testing their modems.

All seems good for me so far. Its starting to get hard to choose between these.

That's always the problem with testing modems. Carrier signals vary depending on the location and time of day. This is why I always give it about a week before making any decisions.

Its a dirty job Shottie but someone has to do it!

To be honest, at this early stage, I can't see much, if any, difference between LPB and LPH.

Hi guys
been testing the new lph modem and for me its 50/50.
standard signal in a very black spot has gone up from 1 bar average to 4. It dose drop now and then but creeps back up. 3g on the other hand is bad. I used to get a mix of 3g and H now only g. speed test on lpb was download 1.40 upload 1.03 ping 99ms. On lph download 0.01 upload 0.03 and ping 800.
Shame as the phone signal was hugely improved.

What app are you using to monitor your speeds in that pic? I'm using LPH since this morning and appear to be getting great speeds so far, although I'm not sure if it's just placebo and would like to be able to take a slightly more scientific approach

The clue to the name of the app is cunningly disguised at the top of my screenshot... Network Signal Info.

As you can see from this screenshot, dBm/ASU do not tell the whole story as Percent has to be taken into account as well. Compare this to my earlier screenshot showing 4 bars of signal and this one showing just 3.

LBP was giving me fantastic battery life. Could easily manage 2 days out of it with games, music, browsing, facebook, voice & texts.

Only issue would be my signal strength, so I'm trying LPH now.

There doesn't seem too much difference in the real-world between LPB and LPH for me, but I'm finding LPB is a little better on battery than LPH.

I've reverted back to LPB.

I had a look the other day and there weren't any new ones. All the recent ones came along with leaked ics firmware and I can't see anymore of these with the official release round the corner. I think we will have to wait for an official ics before we get a new modem.

That's not being fair on Lansford Hastings. More people survived than died. If they'd taken my shortcut it would've been 100% fatalities.

Edit: oh yeah, I just had another look and still no new modems. I'll check back about 2pm

2pm???
Hourly would mean a check at 13:40. Come on now Shotty, where's the commitment gone?

I love Donner Parties...... with a bit of garlic but plenty of chilli sauce.

Well done Shottie!

Better late than never.

You go and treat yourself to an extra helping of dessert for that.

Seems OK... of course, there's only one real way for me to test it!

Some of us have jobs to go to in the morning so have to sleep.
Edit: It appears that lpq is the official ics release so it shouldn't be long until we get some stable custom roms.

"Q"? That's ridiculous! I've only just flashed "J". What happened to K-P???

Your definitely slacking Shotty. Go to the back of the class and put on the dunces hat.

At the moment, with the Cheltenham Gold Cup on, half the population of Ireland is in every pub and bar for miles around and with one single aim... drink the Cotswolds dry!

On a serious note, just for a change, if you want to test your modem's performance against a previous version, then install something like Network Signal Info, free, from the Play Shop, this will also show you the location of the mobile mast/cell tower, you are connected to:-

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=de.android.telnet&feature=search_result #?t=W251bGwsMSwxLDEsImRlLmFuZHJvaWQudGVsbmV0Il0.

You can also get your dBM and ASU from...

Settings > About phone > Status > Signal strength

Try and take your readings at roughly the same time of day as signal strength can vary depending on overall network usage.

Try to take your readings in the same places. I do one indoors at my desk, one outdoors and one, reluctantly, at a local pub with a notoriously bad signal history.

The three factors that affect your signal strength are dBM, ASU and percent.

dBm is always measured as, "-". The lower the dBm the stronger the signal.

ASU, Active Set Update/Arbitrary Scale Unit/Android Signal Unit, whatever it's called... the higher the better.

Percent, again, the higher the better.

Contrary to popular belief, the modem does not affect your Wi-Fi signal, that is handled by the kernel.

For more details on mobile phone signals, see here:-

Mobile phone signal - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Network Signal Info



Do not try and compare the signal strength bars on your SGSII with other makes of phones as the signal bars and the strength they measure are not industry standardised and completely arbitrary.

Sorry Sword Fish, I think Shottie has already used that excuse before!

It's right up there with...

Of course I love you.

The cheque's in the post.

and... I promise not to co.... (well, you know that one I guess )

Early indications are that it really isn't any different to LPJ and, "maybe", a -dBm and ASU or two better than LPH.

Well it was a crappy job anyways. I don't know how you do it Shottie, the abuse that comes with the position is too much for me! I therefore relinquish any responsibilitiy that I thought I might have had back to you!

I've tried the Network Signal Info and it tells me there is an error on samsung phones that causes the reading to be positive 85(it doesn't change at all), which i seem to be suffering with, is there an alternative to this app that i can use?

It gives a positive 85dBm value sometimes instead of a -85 dBm value.

My Network Info is not, "stuck", at 85 dBm.

See posts #55, #61, #64, #87.

mine is literally stuck on 85, the only time it goes up is when the ASU changes, does that mean that it is constantly -85? or is this an error? I noticed in most of yours its stable, but in post #61 it is up and down. so wasnt sure which is normal / working

i just noticed the screen capture toast covering part of the picture, oops.

The higher the ASU the better. As ASU increases so does dBm (the -ve number gets smaller)

Mine fluctuates up+down according to signal
Its strange as on your screenshot you are on 20 ASU.

ASU/dBm is calculated by the formula: dBm= -113+(2*ASU)
so 20ASU = -73 dBm

So its very odd that you are on +85.

As Hawker says, that does seem odd, DeadBeginning!

I do not know of another app similar to Network signal Info.

However you can obtain a report via...

Settings > About phone > Status > Signal strength... this will give you dBm and ASU.

(Looking at your screenie, I would say that your dBm should be reading -65 or -67 dBm... stonking! )

strangely that doesnt appear to work either, i get an error saying it cant locate my cell tower(although it gives me a speedtest on my carriers connection) it says it may not be added to the database. i get a similar error when locating the tower on Network Signal Info too
