I rarely every have issues while looking at videos either on WiFi or my carrier. I'm not sure exactly the speed rating, but it's good enough that I don't care enough to find out.

I heard of these issues and have noticed the signal indicator drop in that one room before. I didn't do any real measurable or repeated tests on speed. I just noticed it loaded in a reasonable amount of time. Just from my personal experience, any signal drop did not adversly affect me in my environment.

My laptop on my bed says FAIR signal strength on WI-FI yet i move off the bed and get full strength.I think its the bed springs causing signal drop,BUT,in each case i can still browse the web it has no real cause for concern.
The problem is some people go out of their way to cause signal drop whereas in reality we would not do such things.The only adverse effect of signal drop is a shorter battery life or a speed drop.

I had to go to a corner of my house for this to happen. Even so, I am still able to surf the net. I went to various pages on this site and it still loads. I did not notice any significant drop in speed either. This would indicate that although signal strength is lower, it is still able to connect.

I have used both the Desire Z and N97. I prefer the tighter spring of the N97 for the feel. However, I have never had any problems with the Desire Z's hinge after using it for almost 3 months. Most of the criticism I have seen regarding the DZ's hinge are not things you would really encounter in practice.

I only notice this when I am in a part of my house far from my router. Even though I lose bars on the indicator, I have never had issues with connectivity to the internet. I have not experienced losing the signal completely.

So for example someone comes on here looks at the review,, they make an opinion not knowing that in the past 2 -36months its been upgraded numerous times.This should also be taken into account never mind all the super modding and custom ROMS that are available.
Stop voting the Z down its a fantastic bit of kit.It is packed to the hilt with tech .

This is the usual position when typing with the keyboard extended. I experience a change from -85dbm (almost all bars) to -89dbm (1 or 2 bars). When near the wifi hotspot, it does not matter. When then wifi signal is poor, it may be an issue.
The effect depends on how much you are covering. Nevertheless, my impression is that every phone has a position where the reception is affected. You can try to hold your current smartphone in different positions and verify this.
3G reception does not seem to be affected.
I want to talk about screens and what people mean by them.
A good screen is one that in sunlight its readable to answer tweets or reply to email,it does not mean you can watch a video and see all glorious vivid colours.
The next screen is what some describe as passable meaning if you cup your hand round screen you should be able to read it.
Then there is the worst screen ie moto x720 which i had for 4 dats before sending it back..These screens are more use as a mirror than a screen and completly useless.
Its now 2011 and there is no excuse for this poor quality even if a fones cheap..Whats the use of having a mobile used for outdoors when it does not fullfill its purpose??? I mean do they test these mobiles in the CEO"S office and pass the quality..
I use my smartfone outdoors mainly and i expect therefore good screen,earpiece quality,battery,reception and microphone components.Yes i may use my mobile at home sometimes but mainly i use home fone and laptop.These work for what they are built for so i expect my mobile to work outdoors for whats its supposed to do and be a mobile phone.
Talking of quality HTC are bad i know with crud mikes,speakers and cameras but there is not many qwerty smartfones about.There is n97 and s/e vivaz pro but they are slow and bad.Plus the E7 has no card slot no autofocus so only high specification option is desire z.
