In defense of thirdcoast, he simply stated that he has had no dropped calls. He didn't mention anything about data connectivity and all the posted links were reference a data connectivity issue not voice calls.
No, one person's experience does not negate the experience of a group of others, but in the same manner the vocal group of those with problems doesn't negate the experience of the group who are having no problems. thirdcoast's lack of issues with dropped calls is also a truthful, factual occurence, in his context.
Once the new Galaxy comes out we'll know soon enough if it is really the device it's purported to be. I am excited to see it but I wish I could get a more concrete idea of when it is expected to launch. I am torn between the new Evo and the new Galaxy.
The context of my OP was about the many reported GPS issues, and connectivity that the Samsung variant phones seems to be plagued with; which can lead to dropped calls focusing on the connectivity to CDMA. However; I do agree about him not having any issues not being negated by the claims of issues. The Verizon link has complaints of dropped calls, and I could post many more links that reference that but I don't feel the need. The complaints are so wide spread that even if people report no issues the many complaints and admitted Carrier address fix's cloud the user experience from Samsung for pretty much every CDMA phone that they have sold I have found. If Samsung had great radios they probably rule smart phones no doubt!
I agree about the challenge of deciding which phone and about him not having any issues being negated by the claims of issues, but I think I may go with the EVO, or try to hold for a Galaxy Nexus 3 "if" there are no connectivity issues! I'd like to see what Moto has to offer as well.
