    So I moved from a z10 to dtek50 and I find the reception is a much poorer; I'm on Bell. Anyone finding the same issues?

    hey @Marts64, look into this old thread, it discusses about the Paratek Antennae which is some advanced version allowing better reception, which the DTEK50 does not have. You can read more on this thread: Is anybody else having issues with DTEK50 cell signal?

    Wasn't the Paratek antenna introduced with the Z30?

    I have not noticed any different in cell reception between my Z30 and my DTEK 50. If anything, LTE+ on my DTEK improves the throughput although it has little to do with signal quality.

    Umm yea sure, the dtek50 with no paratek antenna has better reception than the Z30 - it also has better build and speakers too I'm sure /S

    LTE+ is a new service offered by some carriers. If it is available, the status bar will show LTE+. It has nothing to do with antenna or signal strength.
