Do you find that your Android phone often cuts out or has low signal strength? You’re not alone. Many people face this issue, but there are ways to improve the signal strength on your phone. In this post, we’ll discuss some tips for doing just that. Stay tuned for more helpful information like this!
BUILD IN POWERFUL RADIOS
This section focuses on the first way to improve signal strength, which is building powerful radios inside your phone. In other words, it’s about making sure that your phone has as many high-quality antennas as possible.
In general, there are three types of radios: cellular radios (the type that handles conversations with cell towers), wireless radios (such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth), and GPS radios (which help your device triangulate its position with the help of satellites).
On most phones, cellular radios are built into practically every chip that works to give you a phone signal. This is because cellular data connections are required for more or less everything you do on your smartphone.
When it comes to wireless radios, many older smartphones only have two of them: one for talking to cell towers, and another for Wi-Fi connections. Newer smartphones can often support more than five different types of wireless signals at once. You may not need all these extra signals right now, but they could become quite useful someday.
For example, if your camera supports NFC (Near Field Communication) chips, you’ll be able to use the NFC chip instead of Bluetooth to transfer any picture or video you take directly onto another device without having to touch it.
We also recommend turning your phone’s Wi-Fi capabilities on whenever you can. Although data connections are often faster than Wi-Fi, you don’t have to worry about coming into contact with something that can’t get online when using Wi-Fi. Furthermore, if your cell tower is too far away from where you are for a good connection but there’s a Wi-Fi network nearby, your phone will switch over to that wireless signal automatically.
USE A BETTER MODEM BANDWIDTH
The second way to improve signal strength is by getting a modem bandwidth upgrade. To understand this, we need to talk about signal strength in a bit more detail.
Remember that your phone uses radio frequencies (RF) to communicate with the towers around you, and then those towers pass that data on to internet servers. The weaker the connection between your phone and the tower, the slower your data will be.
The modem bandwidth upgrade increases how much information can flow through your cellular connection by allowing you faster memory speeds on the hardware level. This means there’s more room for error when it comes to buffering or interruptions in service. When this happens, some of your time is wasted, but with a stronger modem bandwidth, less of its power has to be allocated to dealing with errors.
USE A DECENT NETWORK BANDWIDTH
The third way to improve signal strength is by using better network bandwidth. Additionally, this also helps improve your download speeds because it all comes down to how many people are using the internet at once.
Overall, this means that you’ll probably experience faster downloads when you’re in an area where there aren’t very many people (that is, out in the country or suburbs instead of down in the city). If you can’t escape to rural areas for whatever reason, then the next best thing would be moving to an area with just one or two other networks.
Also, try not to use Wi-Fi if only one cell tower is nearby. Otherwise, all of your data will have to go through two different modems, which can slow your speeds down.
TRY TO GET ON A FASTER NETWORK
The final way to improve signal strength is by getting a new cell phone plan that uses a faster network technology. For example, the newest LTE networks are known for being much more powerful than older 3G and 4G technologies. In addition, many carriers have been revamping their existing networks to support modern smartphones with data-heavy applications.
In practice, this means improved Internet speeds on the go so you get the most out of your phone. These kinds of upgrades also help cut back on how often you’ll lose connection while driving in areas where there aren’t any cell towers nearby. If you’re going to be doing a lot of long-distance driving, this is the best way to improve your signal strength.
You can make a noticeable improvement in signal strength by upgrading to a newer smartphone. In addition, improving your modem bandwidth and finding a better network will also help keep your signal strong. If none of these options are available to you then it’s going to be very difficult for you to improve your phone’s reception either indoors or out.
