    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..

    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.
