    This article is quite interesting about signal quality on the Z30:

    From the article,

    At the street location with poor service, the Z30 showed an average signal level around -52dBm (closer to zero is better) and network speeds around 0.7Mbps down and 0.5Mbps up. At the same location, a Galaxy Note 3 showed -94dBm, 0.15Mbps down, and 0.15Mbps up. In the area with good service, the advantage was less dramatic, though. The Z30 showed -42dBm, 2.66Mbps down, and 0.89Mbps up, where the Note 3 showed -73dBm, 2.24Mbps down, and 1.3Mbps up. In our basement location, the Z30's signal strength fluctuated from anywhere as good as -73dBm to -107dBm, but it was able to actually make a call on the first attempt without ever dropping out. The Note 3 showed around -108dBm, but was unable to make a call from the basement.

    And the reviews I read said no noticeable difference. This is quite encouraging.

    To me blackberry should push this new antenna tech as a selling factor.

    It probably won't be a "noticable" difference. I bet people don't know what they're looking for. But it's that one time when you think to yourself "I never got coverage here before...", THAT's the difference IMO. has worked very well for me in more rural areas so far

    Seriously, I was shocked when I saw the reception I was getting with my Z10 in places I never had any on my Android phones, and it doesn't have the fancy new antenna the Z30 has.

    This really needs more exposure.

    It's one of those things where lots of new people forgot that what a smartphone is for now. Reception, call qual, speaker and mic quals should be one of the biggest factors in decision making.

    Not for people who rarely use their phones for talking. Smartphones are for what the buyer wants to use them for.
