Re: You know what's weird?
That is directly related to the low presence of Nokia smartphones, growing but low, as the people-who-know-some-simple-maths detailed earlier.
Flashy metal-cased smartphones drop calls more easily. Smartphones can actually have better antennae in size and location etc. if they wish (they are bigger after all). They do suffer having a more noisy electronic environment to operate in - they often run an IP stack and transfer data during a call for instance, my 8210 rarely did that and never at 3G speeds.
However, HD audio and noise-cancellation means I have better, clearer conversations in far worse (audio) noise environments and, while call-drops still happen (as they always did), the overall experience is better (as it bloody well ought to be).
So, get a better phone if you don't like the one you have and stop assuming all smartphones are as rubbish as yours - that is one the reasons iPhones sell so well after all - somebody keeps telling them they are the best and they believe it - 'it just works', tosh - they are just adequate smartphones with poor call performance that look nice and have a stupendous amount of apps.
