    Nexus 4 weak LTE signal

    Does the Nexus 4 generally pickup a weaker LTE signal? I'm running LTE on mine and it seems to go from 0 to 3 or 4 bars constantly.

    I think I read somewhere that it's generally weaker but I just want to confirm.

    Thanks

    Sitting in my home office, I have -97 dBm, 46 asu. That said, I don't go by the bars that much. Check the signal under 'About/Status'. As well, call quality is the best indicator for me.

    It doesn't have an LTE amplifier, a weaker signal makes sense.

    The word 'Pentaband' means '5 Bands', from the Greek word 'pente' meaning '5'. For a phone to be pentaband it has to support 5 bands. If the phone has AWS support, it doesn't automatically mean that it is pentaband.

    Don't send me PMs for questions that can be asked publicly.

    Oh well. It's still an amazing phone even without LTE.
