When I bought my OG droid I ended up buying a network extender because I had so many connection issues, seemed like there was a hole in coverage around my house - signal was great as soon as I got about a block away. Now that I have my Nexus, my signal seems to be better and I no longer need the extender. no dropped calls or data. Im not talking about measured dbm or bars because I think that can be deceiving , just purely call quality and connection problems are better. just wanted to chime in that there are some of us out there who are happy with the signal. or maybe its just me?
