    1880 mah battery gets better signal???

    got my 1880mah battery today, for my wife's phone. Wanted to see if it would fit my "carbon Fiber" case and it did.

    One thing I noticed is with my stock battery I get 3 bars sitting on the dining room table, and with her 1880 battery it gets all 4 bars.

    Swapped my stock battery back into my phone and reception went down to 3 bars.

    Crazy. :-)

    So now she will get batter battery life AND better signal.

    Is there any truth to this or is it just luck?

    the battery does absolutely nothing to the cell phone antenna. they are in no way in contact.

    it might just be the difference in cell phones, or the phone choosing to show 3/4 bars.

    I'd believe this story if you posted screen shots of your dbm level. go to settings > About phone> status > Signal Strength (its on status screen)

    You could just take the larger battery and give her the two smaller ones...

    Unless it's due to the phone sensing it has more juice to pull from so it roams harder or farther for a signal? lol talking out my ass with ideas.

    my battery: -92 dbm 0 asu
    her battery: -90 dbm 0asu


    Not sure what the numbers mean but now that her battery is back in my phone I have 4 bars again....


    put my battery back in and down to 3 bars.

    If she ever reads this post and finds out I have the larger battery, I will need a couch to sleep on :-)

    a difference of 2 dbm is not enough to justify a solid change. it can just be the phone hardware or some other abysmal difference


    a phone can go from -10 dbm (which is the absolute best reception, like right on the cell tower) to -120 dbm which is no reception at all.
