I'm just curious.
Having come from a Galaxy Nexus I can say my signal is worse :(
My signal fluctuates from 1 bar to 4 (its never full now) and heavily fluctuates between 3G and H
Can firmware updates fix this kind of thing?Regards

I honestly can't figure out why mine is worse.
I'm in the city center and I can just about manage 4 bars. Signal fluctuates heavily between 2 and 4 whilst on H.
My colleague sat next to me has his Lumia 800 on EE (Orange UK) and gets full signal. What gives?
Any ideas folks?Regards

I even brought my backup 8S in today (to show to some other folks) and that doesn't have signal issues with the same card it stays consistent.

Not much difference between the Lumia 900/Titan III and the Lumia 920/8X as far as cellular performance goes. I do think wifi performance is better with the newer phones though.George Ponder

Way better reception at my house with my 920. My old Atrix could barely even send a SMS the signal was so horrible, and now I am usually on H+. In town, I get a consistant 4 - 5 bars of LTE. Wifi is way better as well, because it will actually stay connected to the wifi.

I also had a Nexus, but I'm in the opposite boat. I consistently have better reception than I did with the Nexus. I had every single stereotypical problem that Nexus users had: poor reception, signal drop-off, bad multitouch.... but back on point, no- I have better reception with the Nokia 920.

Im on Orange, sorry EE and I was finding that it kept loosing signal for a moment then coming back to G, 3G, H or H+, also text messages kept failing and I had to resend. The thing that has solved it for me is to going in to the mobile network in settings and put highest connection speed to 3G (it was on 4G as standard) - this has solved it for me as I suspect it was looking for 4G connections and loosing the other connections, and as I dont have 4G in my area, it was no good to me anyway.
Hope this helps.

Mine is definitely better. There is a Target that I go to that seems to block reception in the far corner of the store. Every phone I have ever taken there, including HTCs, iPhone 5, Samsungs, etc. get almost no service in the back corner. We're talking no bars and no data download. The 920 holds onto 2 bars of 4G and a speed test shows over 1 Mbps in that location.
My Galaxy Nexus dropped the cell connection completely there and all of my other Samsungs and iPhones would get no data at all. Maybe Motorola would do better, but I stopped buying their phones after the original Droid and the bootloader locking and slow updates became the norm for them.
TL:DR - My 920 is better than any other phone I have owned, and I have had many of them.

I had a Sprint HTC EVO, the 3G is slower and 4G hard to find. I could never get a good cell signal in my office because my office is like a bunker with no windows. Although call quality outside and in normal locations is fine.
But with my new L920 from AT&T, I always have LTE on and speed is very fast. Cell signal inside my office is very good too! No more noise or interference.
Very happy with my switch so far.
