Default Why is this and are they aware of it?

I live .7 miles from a 4G LTE tower and get full coverage on both my galaxy nexus devices and moto x. These are the screen shot of my new Nexus 5 the normal signal is on 4.4 and the horid is on 4.4.2. I have tried flashing three times all with same results. Or can I just flash the radio
or is this a OS issue.

Signals fluctuate often. Hard to pinpoint an issue just from a little bit of testing, though does seem odd. Can't say I'm shocked when I hear Sprint service not working well for some reason or another. You can try a different modem here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2514095

Its not a service issue its a device issue, I have tried two Nexus 5's and both have lousy signal and regain it when flashing back to 4.4.

It's was talked about quite a bit after 4.4.2 was launched that people were facing signal issues with the radio packed with 4.4.2. Some people flashed back to the 4.4 radio and reported improvement. Personally, I haven't seen a difference.

If you want you can flash the 4.4 radio and see if it improves your signal.

I just rooted and flashed the KRT16M and it made a huge improvment.

You can just flash the modem from 4.4 to use with 4.4.2. All the benefits of the updated firmware with the radio performance of the old modem.

I went to the .15 radio tonight and it seemed to help some. Plus remember the radio is a triband radio unlike your other two phones.
