LTE drops signal prematurely, solution?


Recommended Posts

When my Galaxy Nexus is in Evdo/LTE mode, my 4g signal cuts in and out, jumping from 3g to 4g every minute or so. My LTE signal is ranging from -89dbm to -120dbm.

 

If I force my galaxy nexus to do LTE only, I can get a consistent 6mbps up/down even at -120dbm. Is there anyway to change this dropoff point so it will always hang onto the LTE signal in Evdo/LTE mode? I know you could do this on wimax phones, (http://forum.xda-dev...d.php?t=1566704) but when I enter *#*#3282#*#* on my galaxy nexus, I don't see an option to change signal dropout points anywhere. I'm also running CM9 if that makes any difference.

 

Is there anyone else having this issue, and does anyone know of a solution?

At the moment there is no way to tell if its your phone or the network so just wait a few days and see if it gets better or stays the same. For what its worth, I will say that I haven't had any connectivity issues with my gnex or my evo lte so far.

Good find with the forcing on of LTE and finding that you can still pull that much down. If it is possibly to change the hand off dbm I'm sure someone will find a way to do it soon. However, since you are running CM9 that may explain why you don't already have that option. I know when I ran custom roms on my Samsung Epic I didn't have all of the debug options that I had on the stock rom.

I'll try going back to stock and see if there are anymore options. Thanks!

Sorry, I forgot to mention that this is only happening in my basement. I have no reception problems elsewhere.

I know on the evo lte when you do ##data# and go to edit mode then select Evdo you have an option to change to LTE mode only (I did this but since so lte here yet it to no signal lol)

    • One more thing.. I just took a photo of a random glass on my counter in low light with both phones with no modifications to the stock camera settings.  The difference is night and day.  The photo taken with the Note looks crisp. Details are sharp. The dim scene is brightened beautifully.  Even the curtains in the background remain sharp and clear even when zoomed in.  The Pixel 7 Pro attempt at the same photo is laughable.  Blurrycam UFO type horrendous.  Did I get a faulty device?  This thing is horrific.  Something seems waaaay off.  
    • I received my P7 Pro 2 days ago and - coming from my Note 10 plus - I absolutely hate it!  I didn't expect to hate it so much but even the screen looks grossly inferior to my Note 10+ even though I know that makes no sense, at least on paper.  But I'm holding them side by side right now and the Pixel 7 Pro display looks grainy and borderline blurry compared to my several year old Note 10+.  What's going on here??  I toggled on full resolution thinking that would change things but....no.  the screen just looks awful.  Also...is there a way to mirror the Pixel 7 Pro to your smart tv without WiFi?  I've always done this with my Samsung phone. I thought allcast would be able to help out with that but it seems to not even function with this phone.  I'm about to smash this damn thing against the wall but I can't because I need it in one piece so I can return it ASAP to Best Buy.  I've honestly never been so wildly disappointed in a device.  Definitely going to switch it for the S22 Ultra. I don't understand the hype with this device.  Other than instant Android updates (which may not be the best idea after all) ...I can no longer see the allure.  
    • Any word on how SCP works with lineageos 19 on a oneplus nord n200 5g? Alternatively, how does the modem option work with rooted Android 11 on the same device? Maybe it has been depreciated in the past given the APIs. But since those are failing with NSA was planning to revisit the rooted modem options.
    • It doesn't include T-Mobile because AT&T objected to the T-Mobile applications.  The fact that anything at all was filed will add time. - Trip
