I meant the signal is worse by two bars... Not easier.

I noticed that even though the dbm number (-102) was the same in different phones, the xperia x performance signal bar was only 0-1 bars while other phones was 3 bars. Perhaps the xperia x performance phone is just too sensitive and needs to have a software update to adjust

Re: very bad signal , so bad that it is useless Xperia x Performance

There must be something wrong with Xperia x performance because connection break's frequently.
Usually changing the connection to 2g helps when you are in a bad signal area but with X performance it loses connection totally. Now my phone stays online only if I force it to 3g only but even then it loses connection unexpectedly.
I have used Xperia companion repair tool and installed software again but it didn't help a bit. What happened I lost one months messages even I made backup before installing.
This is my 4's Xperia and I have had same kind of problems before but this is bottoms.

From Sony 's website :
"Xperia™ X Performance
The masterpiece
High Performance smartphone with high quality camera that predicts the next motion"

But what happens if you don't want to take a picture when you just want to make a simple voice call ???

Re: very bad signal , so bad that it is useless Xperia x Performance

I'm having Similar reception issues.

I'm in Canada with Rogers, and I never had any issues with my LTE reception and speed, on any of my sony xperia devices in the past, and between my wife an I that is 8 devices.

 

but this X performance, is a huge let down, I can;t believe I have this brand new phone and I'm regretting this puchase.

 

I'm a long time Sony fan ever since the puchased Ericsson, but now I question whether I want to stay with the brand.

 

I really hope that this is something that can be fixed
