Hey Guys! I have used a Nokia Lumia 710, but it was horrible. A lot of signal drops, and the signal itself wasn't stable. Also, the signal bar reaches 3/5 maximum at home, and the funny part is that Calls don't connect at signal 2/5 ! Even if calls were connected, A LOT of voice cuts and echoes and the other party couldn't understand 50% of what I am talking, due to voice cuts and muffing voices. So it was a mess. Now, I took my father's Samsung Galaxy Fit, which at least does 4/4 and 3/4 indoors, and signal doesn't drop nor calls drop. Even in my room, which is nearly a dead spot on 3G network, the Galaxy Fit "resists" the dead spot and gives me 2-3/4, while my previous Lumia 710 gives up immediately, giving me a 1/5 maximum. But this phone is kinda old and laggy. Also, I am not a fan of Samsung devices, due to the cheap body materials and the crowded TouchWiz UI. So, Any advices for the smartphone with the best signal and the best in-call voice quality for both ends ? Preferable Sony, HTC, and WP devices. And No Samsung.

marionaoum73,

Firstly, not really sure if this is a question for our community (within this section), since you have not outlined a VOIP or Networking related question.

However, you should speak with various phone networks regarding the signal strengh for your premises, and maybe speak to a phone consultant within Carphone Warehouse or a phone shop; who would have in-depth knowledge of specific mobile devices.

“I have an HTC One, and I love it. It has clear sound, no problems with signals, never had a call drop. The HTC One was rated as one of the top 5 for the year….and I can understand why!”

    For me personally, I have Verizon as my carrier and have not had any signal strength issues. Even when calling the US from Punta Cana when on vacation.
