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?

    • Some more interesting articles on Dish: https://www.fiercewireless.com/5g/dish-wireless-bakes-core-principles-infrastructure-chua https://www.fiercewireless.com/tech/dish-eyes-5g-network-reliability-vericas-chaos-engineering-platform    
    • Financially makes sense, but may put them far behind T-Mobile and Verizon 5g marketing.  Could put them up against Dish if Dish gets their act together and starts their public network in Las Vegas in late February.
    • Fiercewireless put out an article today.  Sounds like AT&T wont get heavily started until later this year when equipment will be more available that supports both 3.45GHz and C-Band.
    • They are using DSS on B5 here, on one carrier. LTE-only on the other AFAIK. I kinda hope AT&T doesn't turn DSS on in markets where dropping H+ bumps them from 5x5 for everything else to 10x10. They have 10x10 of B14 and 5x5-10x10 of B12 to throw users on, and with the delays to their C-Band deployment due to waiting for gear their network is effectively LTE-only in many areas despite an increasing proportion of 5G phones. The network was doing just fine without the extra B5 bandwidth, so not a whole lot of reason to basically go backwards when they said they're dropping 3G to expand 5G.
