brynn, 31 Jan 2011Yes i agree its only if something really interferes with what your doing things cause trouble.... moreI'm from Canada. I find our internet speeds to be pretty good. 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.
