I am having signal problems on my Xperia 1 device ... the signal drops from time to time..call quality is sometimes bad and I need to know if this can can be fixed ...a lot of people are complainin about Xperia devices on bad signal ...come on Sony , don t you people read this topics ? Do a software update for bad signal...DO SOMETHING before we all become Samaung users !
I doubt it is network, I tried 2 different carriers and had issues with call quality. Well not entire call (for example 40mins) wss bad, no. It's not like constant, but there are drops where I do not hear the other side or people are saying they do not hear me from time to time. Moreover, sometimes the calls are completely dropped... And thisbis unacceptable.
I was highlighting weak signal reception on Xperia 1 but so far no fix. Note that you can check your signal strength in the settings. Go to settings - - > system - - > informations about the phone - - > sim card state. There you can see the dBm( decibels relative to milivatt ) which is value in fact strength of your signal reception (the lower the worse). My current values for Orange are about -107dBm to even -119dBm! And I live in a big city. Other carier is similar.
Below article says the usable strength is max -85dBm and xperia 1 is so poor that it is below -110dBm:
What are your dBm values and what carriers? Can you please check and share?

o2, uk, -89dBm is what I see.(o2 uk, -91dBm is what I see in my car when driving, also connected to a Nextbase dashcam)
Orange was the worst network I remember "back in the day", closely followed by T- Mobile, and they both are EE now, IMO, garbage signals no matter where I was with my old contract phones.
Closely followed by Vodaphone.
We use Vodaphone in our work now, and I guarantee we cannot get a full phone call without major glitches and robotic phasing in the audio.
So for 4G you actually get a "fair" signal.
The 4G list is below:

Meanwhile I switched the carrier, but situation is the same, this is an Xperia 1 issue since I do not have such a problem when tried shamesung of my cooeague at the same location, below X1 with another carrier:
