Samsung’s Metal Phones have signal issues
It seems that Samsung’s endeavours into the metal casing smartphones isn’t going so well. It might be that the company’s choice to have stuck to plastic builds may just have been a smarter move.
According to reports by Russian tech websit [email protected], an experiment with the two of the metal unibody Galaxy gadgets, the Galaxy A3 and A5 didn’t go so well. The techies took the gadgets along with the plastic Galaxy S5 were put through some tests.
The picture above depicts the trio of devices attempting to access the exact same mobile network. The Galaxy S5 which is built using plastic as its main body material had a good signal strength of -82dBm while the duo of metal devices only had -92dBm and -93dBm. Usually, the closer a number is to 0, the better the reception for the network currently is.
The variation of the network strength is suprising as the devices are side by side and attempting to connect to the same network. [email protected] speculated that the difference would have been caused by the metal build of the A3 and A5 which caused a worse signal. The bad reception can be leading to battery drain as well as it is close to a reading of -100dBm. Also, the A3 and A5 read a weaker Wi-Fi reception as well.
Does this indicate that the South Korean tech tycoon should have kept to plastic instead of attempting a metal built line of smartphones? What do you think this could mean? Could there be any other reason for these results from the tests? Let us know in the comment section below.
