Anyone return there Nexus for a Rezound?

Member

I can't take my horrible 3G/4G speeds and dropped calls. I'm getting around 3-7mbps download and 1-5 upload with around -108db signal strength. I'm really trying to make excuses to keep this phone around, but if I can't enjoy it whats the point? I was wondering if anyone has returned there Nexus for a Rezound and have got better speeds with the Rezound? I'm thinking about rerturn my Nexus this week to head over to the Rezound, which I hear has an excellent radio. I know Verzion has an update in the works but I heard it's just a fix for the bars that are showing, I don't belive they said it wil fix actaully signal issues as Verizon stated that there isn't a 4G problem? I have to the 15th I believe to return this but right now I'm just holding onto an exspensive paper weight. Such a shame, all this hype and so many problems. I undestand that new phones have bugs but not to this extent.

It sounds like you have made up your mind already, if the device isnt doing what you need of it and you are not satified there really isnt any reason to hold on to it..  I think HTC has better radio quality than other devices, even the devices that shows low signals has never disconnected on me using it,

 

I would say go for the Rezound if thats what is your intrest...

I haven't made up mind that's the problem. I know each user is different, but I just don't want to make the mistake of returning my Nexus for a Rezound only to find out that my location is really the problem for my poor signal. I mean I'll call VZW today but there just going to send me a different Nexus or just tell me to switch.

Samsung devices has a history of weak signal issue on almost all their devices that they have released so I would guess it is probably the device..

I had a Rezound.  I was in the Verizon store, waiting to return it.  I had to stand around for about 30 mintues.  So, I went over to the Nexus, out of curiosity and it had the same exact reception as the Rezound.  The bars( 2 bars) being displayed was the same on both the devices as well as the decibel reading in the system settings.  I went over to the Razr and it had 4 bars.  I don't get it. I'm not sure but I think there was something wrong with the Rezound anyway.  I got 1 hours of use out of it and the stock battery would be half dead. Fast draining to me.

I have roughly the same signal on my Galaxy Nexus that I had on my Droid X. My house has some old electrical wiring, causing signal interference with anything radio signal wise. 

 

I do have dropped network connections, but that is about the same places in the house that my X had problems. I do live in a 4g 'extended area'. I do see 4g signals once in a while, but not consistan, which doesn't surprise me. I have not dropped any calls yet.

 

Overall, I think that the radio is OK on GN. I know that the bars in the notification bar are lower than the X, but the signal strength is the same. Bottom line, it works well enough. If I lose connection for more than a couple of minutes, I can swith to WiFi and problem solved :smileyvery-happy:

I had a Rezound, exchanged it for a Nexus, and then went back to the Rezound. Reason I went for the nexus was because of the eye catching super amoled display and much better OS/UI (imo). Main reason I went back to the Rezound was because of signal problems. What good is a LTE device that can't get LTE? I was always in 3G mode in areas where my fiance's Stratosphere and the Rezound had good 4G signal. The nexus also would reboot occasionally and once turned off and wouldn't come on until i took out the battery. Also, the 8mp camera on the Rezound spoiled me and in comparison makes the Nexus camera pictures look like crap. I would have been content the nexus but the signal issues was too much for me.

I like many others have signal issues with the Nexus. I had a Droid X and never had problems with the signal or data, but as soon as I got the Nexus signal and datas issues were a problem. I have 2 other Verizon pones in the house and they work great, but not the Nexus. I really liked the Nexus, but without a good signal it's useless. I exchanged it for a Rezound and am waiting for FedX to deliver it this afternoon. I can't wait to compare the signals and hope it works out.

Well what I have learned that reception quality always depends on the area because I have a friend that has a Nexus and at his house he gets ok reception but at my house due to the number of trees around my property he drops calls but my TB holds signal at both areas but with that said he is happy with the device working at his house because he see that as the important area....   I perfer it working poor in multiple areas that only in one area..

Each to their own on what works for them..
