So Verizon is the opposite of Apple?

See?  The iPhone is the only "smart phone" to ever experience "poor signal" or require a "different bar calculation!"

 

/sarcasm

 

This just hasn't gone as ballistic as Apple's issues (no I don't own a Mac, just an iPhone 4).

Don't act like this is somehow anywhere near the same. Oh poor Apple! When the iPhone had signal issues everybody pointed and laughed! Oh boo hoo! Difference is Apple built an empire around HEY LOOK AT ME MY DEVICE/ SOFTWARE JUST WORKS. So when Apple and all their fan boys bragged it up its just made any mistake Apple made that much funnier. With that being said this post isn't news. The real news is The battery issues galaxy nexus has.

What battery problems? My Nexus is doing just fine. The battery lasts me all day with 20-30% to spare with moderate usage.

And as far as the signal goes I havent had any problems with it.

I did a speed test earlier this week and got over 23Mbps down and almost 9 up.

Actually, it is the same.  You see, "same" refers to two things being not just alike, but probably identical.  I never delved into parent companies, I only described that the iPhone went through a very similar "update" to "fix" a bar-math error.

And what battery issues would those be? I have no issues out of the ordinary for an LTE phone, get about the same battery life as my OG Droid which for a much more advanced phone is pretty good.

Part of it is there is actually nothing wrong with the signal for the Galaxy Nexus, just displaying it differently than previous phones, still has the same dBm strength. The iPhone's issue on the other hand was that it actually was having reception issues when held like any normal person would hold it.

Love how we've been brought back to old issues, and yet everyone's just lamenting even newer issues on the newer Android phones.

My point, for the slow, was that you can't assail one company, such as Apple, without realizing grass really isn't greener on the other side.

Apple had this problem with the bars as well, and ya know what?  Several review sites found out that there are a multitude of cellphones that lose reception based on how you hold them, including many Droids.

I'm not an Apple fanboy, but I LOVE the "defensive rally" for the Droid when everyone was probably slamming the iPhone for very similar things.

The Death Grip.  Its funnier when its "You're holding it wrong."

I hope this isn't a variation of the classic "electric tape on the check engine light" fix
