I 3rd Moto. Any of the current phones from Moto are going to have strong radio's. I have heard that the HTC has improved the radio's in the DNA also.

Anything but a Galaxy Nexus!
FWIW, my wife's Bionic "generally" gets better service when we're in fringe areas than my Gnex. I recommend (with everyone else) a Moto device. It was rock solid with my OG Droid.

Love my Moto Rzr Maxx for battery life but more importantly for signal.....sooooo much better than the Samsungs I've had almost exclusively in the past.

Well, I don't have any trouble with my VZW S3, but I really think sometimes it is more about location than the radio. My husband has a VZW Moto Bionic, and he has a signal wherever he travels.

X2...RAZR maxx has twice the battery and signal of my old galaxy nexus. I'd definitely get a Maxx HD!

Motorola has the best radios. Had a Motorola Droid X, then when my contract ended I got a Samsung Galaxy S3. Love the phone, but my Motorola definitely had a batter radio, always had a better signal both at home and at work.

Update called verizion they think i have a lemon sending me a refurb s3 .

When i called them i was on that rd working and it drop there call twice.

I have a feeling its gonna be much more of the same. I was talking to a co worker and asked where he was he was in a place where i cant get signal yet his dumbphone was working just fine.

So what do i do if i get the same results do i call vzw to see if they will swap me a dofferent phone? Or do i just sell the s3 and buy another phone?

Unless you guys have different suggestions im thinking motorola maxx hd or just the motto hd?

I agree with everyone that's saying Motorola. I've lined my Motorola smartphone up against an HTC Thunderbolt and an iPhone, and the Motorola always had better signal, even in the basement of my inlaws' lake house in the country in Wisconsin.

I've used both the RAZR HD and the RAZR MAXX HD. From the regular RAZR HD, I would get 36 hours of battery life. In my opinion, if you're on a budget, that phone is wonderfully awesome. The battery was never a problem for me.

If you have the extra coin, or need the additional internal memory (32GB in the MAXX HD, 16GB in the regular HD), or you are a super-user, then the MAXX HD would be your choice.

(oh, btw, I have my regular RAZR HD for sale currently here in our classifieds )

Personally, I LOVE both phones!

I think it depends when you got the phone and noticed the signal issue. If you recently (1-2 months) got the phone and noticed the signal issue and then the replacement has the same problem then I think you can pretty aggressively lobby for a different replacement phone.

I sucessfully had my Samsung Charge traded for a Moto Razr Maxx when a local tower "upgrade" suddenly had my battery discharging in under 4hrs due to search for signal. It took several polite but firm calls (which i documented) and then a written complaint but it finally happened. Good luck!

Lol that's on the job I'm only 5 min to work.
That's not including the other 30 miles where cell service is almost none to very little service.

I live in a fringe service area and previously had a Droid 2, worked OK. Still have a Droid X, works OK. Now have a Droid 4, also works OK. Daughter has had a Samsung Reality and now has a Samsung Brightside, both barely work at all. My Motorola phones at home typically show anywhere from -95 dBm to -103 dBm signal. I bought a Galaxy Nexus and returned it the next day because it could not receive enough signal to even activate it. I had to drive about 2 miles towards the nearest tower to get it to activate.

From my experience, Motorola definitely has the best radios for service. I've been looking to upgrade for awhile so I've been checking different phones at Verizon retailers every chance I get. Without fail, all of the Motorola phones have significantly better signal strength than all other operating phones. Usually around 10 dBm greater signal reception than LG, HTC or Samsung phones, and about 5 dBm greater signal reception than iPhones.

So this signal information from the phones plus real world experience tells me that so far at least, Motorola phones have the best reception currently.

Unless there is a Motorola Nexus with a 2500+ mAh battery released soon, my next phone will definitely be the Razr HD Maxx.

I have both the SG3 and the Razr Maxx HD. On my SG3, I have to step outside at work to have a clear phone conversation. I work in an old brick building, with a metal roof, and it's in a weak signal area. The calls never drop, but I can't usually understand what people are saying. On my Maxx HD, I can sit and my desk and have a perfectly clear conversation, which is awesome. However, for some reason, my Maxx HD did not get some pics sent to me via mms, but the next time I turned on my GS3, they all came rolling in.

Got the Motorola RAZR HD took for a spin on the same road only 1 drop call and that's where a known dead spot is. Might not be the top of the line but I'll tale it with the great signal it gets in fringe areas

No, not really. As long as the op is complying with local laws and using suitable hands-free technology, the distraction is minimized, but that really is a discussion for another thread in a another forum. Let's stick to the issue of signal strength in this thread.

Get a Motorola max HD or the Motorola HD.
Zero dropped calls today on the same road.
Yes I use hands free device.
Shouldn't all smart phones have best signal come first over anything else?

Yes I use hands free device.
Shouldn't all smart phones have best signal come first over anything else?

Lucky you all they wanted to swap me for was the original razr Maxx for the s3 I said not hardly.
I ended up buying a RAZR HD and selling my s3 for pretty much the same price so I'm happy.
