Users and reviewers of the Motorola Droid 2 on Verizon Wireless are noticing that the device’s signal strength is all over the place. Like Apple’s Antennagate, the signal does jump and fluctuate, but unlike the case of the iPhone 4, users are reporting that the signal fluctuates on the Droid 2 without any intervention, death grip, or even holding the phone. According to Mobile Crunch, “The signal on one of the two units we received is all over the board, dipping from full signal down to nearly none whilst sitting in the same spot (and no, we’re not holding it wrong).” The site notes that “Engadget’s review says that four out of four of their units show endlessly fluctuating bar counts, and our buddy Rich Brome of Phonescoop says he’s having bad luck with his, as well. Thats 6 review units, all showing signs of signal woes. Not a good sign.”
Are you a proud owner of the Droid 2? Are you noticing poor reception, fluctuating signal readings, and/or dropped data connections or dropped calls?
Hopefully the issue is only software related and can be patched via an OTA firmware update as the original Motorola Droid has strong reception to Verizon’s network, even in weak coverage areas, in my experience.
