    Like most, I have wifi at the house. My office is across the house, but on the same floor as the router. My laptop gets a 5 bar signal. My old palm pre, same thing. full signal. The evo? Only one bar. I was standing right in front of the router and it went from 4 bars, to 3, back to four.. Here at work I am maybe 25 feet from the antenna and it is showing no bars. Sometimes one, but it goes away..
    I can still access the internet on the phone using wifi, and it seems fast, just wondering if anyone else is seeing this on your phones..

    Display issue - test your speed and you'll see

    Bars between devices are apples to oranges. Try speedtesting to have a quantifiable idea of the differences.

    Yeah, been some talk about this and seems that signal meter isn't very accurate in showing signal strength.

    I noticed this as well in my house, but after doing a speedtest, i got 14.11 mb/s down and 2.88 mb/s up

    Loads pages ridiculously quicker than my iPhone, I tested them side by side.
