ZTE silence on this issue and no real improvement to this in the last 2 updates are not sitting well for me. Sure B27 improved the throughput speed for me... which IMO was the inclusion of Carrier Aggregation. The big issue for me is the signal strength in weak coverage areas. I wasn't angry until today. I received a cheap 99 dollar Alcatel IDOL3 to use at work because it offers easy access to remove the cameras. The Idol3 and my Moto X Pure both have about -2 to -5 dBm better signal when in this very weak area. They can hold an LTE signal around -120dBm and be usable. They can hold a -110dBm to -105 dBm signal and be very usable...... the AXON 7 CANNOT! My MotoX and Idol3 will show -105dBm while the AXON 7 will show -110 to -113dBm in the same exact spot. The AXON is unusable in this situation. In my work space the AXON cannot even grab an LTE signal but the MotoX and Idol3 can and still be very usable!
ZTE are you listening to all the people in this community and XDA about this? IF this cannot be fixed with Firmware then please PLEASE let us know. I cannot wait months for this to be fixed either. Monthly updates for a major problem like this is not OK. This should be a priority over all other bugs since this is how the phone communicates!
I would like to see some official ZTE communication on this. I have contacted ZTE support directly and the only thing they could do was email R&D for me and hope I get a reply on that. They also recommended that I create another thread on this matter.
ZTE there are many on here that are willing to help and are will to be patient, but your silence and the way you just increased how the signal is displayed in the last update puts a bad taste in our mouths on this subject.
