Review: HTC Droid Incredible
Droid Incredible Signal Issue - Appears to be Software Prob
Palm Pre Plus
HTC Droid Incredible
...All sitting on the seat next to me as I drove 28 miles from one end of our county to the next. Palm Pre Plus rarely dropped below 4 bars, Moto Droid rarely below 3.
The Droid Incredible? Rarely went above 3.
But I noticed the same thing you did. The thing never lost a call.
I punched in the service codes on the Palm Pre Plus to take a gander at the RSSI value. (Received Signal Strength Indicator) I also dug down into the Android menus to look at how Incredible and Moto Droid were doing.
Turned out that the Incredible had -88dBm signal at the same time as Palm had -91dBm and Moto Droid had -90dBm. Incredible showed 1 bar, Palm Pre Plus showed 4 bars, and Moto Droid showed 3.
Someone's fudging the numbers in their favor (Palm) and someone doesn't know how to represent their signal strength more accurately.
Maybe this is what HTC's OTA update solves? Don't know. Haven't received it yet.
