HTC Evo Shift better than LG Viper in terms of 1x signal?

I have my HTC Evo Shift and my LG Viper sitting side by side and my Viper consistently shows 10-20dBm weaker signal on 1x and up to 5dBm weaker signal on EVDO. I know that both phones are connected to the same EVDO tower as the Sector ID's match in the EVDO engineering.

 

I guess I'm kinda surprised at this development that an older WiMax phone that was really just a cheapy phone to begin with, and on top of that, my Evo Shift is also refurbished.

 

Anyone wanna take a guess as to why this might be this way.

I consistently have a stronger EVDO signal on my Viper than 1x. It's quite bizarre. I am approximately 300' away from the nearest site. The only one probably visible to my device at all, being in a remote location. However, my 1x is at -82dBm, and EVDO is at -65dBm. Pretty big difference. And that is common.

Normally, I have that problem with my Viper too, but my EVO Shift consistently stays between 2-5 dBm difference with 1x & EVDO signals. But over all, the Viper has weaker radios than the EVO Shift does in my real life testing. It's too bad too. The Viper was a nice phone, or so I thought.

The viper is begining to seem like a lemon.. Wonder whats the Warranty Exchange List looking like for them?

 

1x is weak on the Viper. But EVDO was fine, and LTE was great. However, we still don't have ICS, now do we?

    • 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
