I have 8320 with T-mo. My wife has Samsung t819. When I was with OS 4.2, the reception of my 8320 was slightly worse than that of t819.
However, with 4.5.102, I had solid
SOS all the time at a Home Depot near my place whereas t819 could make call with little problem. I did not want to downgrade all the way to 4.2. So I downgrade to 4.5.81, but not much improvement, I guess.
It seems Blackberry has (slightly) worse reception than Samsung or Moto, but it also seems that the reception is dependent on OS. Any observations?
I was with 4.5.102, not 4.5.110.
