each nexus device has a different build quality looks like the newer ones based off the serial number looks to be a tad better signal wise

I'm sorry, but you're dead wrong. SO much misinformation here. First off, there is no "carrier" or "generic" baseband. There is only one baseband. Second, antenna design requires a lot of engineering to maximize signal efficiency when you're dealing with interference from such things as wifi, nfc, Bluetooth, metal construction in the phone, etc.. I'm not sure what magical material you think that cell antennas should be made of that will solve issues?

I just got off of the phone with Sprint. They show that there is an internal memo on the issue and LG is aware of it. They will be pushing an update as soon as it's ready. Sprint will also be pushing an update for the Airave to help with the issue. The support rep told me that it is an issue where the wifi and LTE radios aren't playing nicely together and causing a conflict. That's why everything seems to work fine when 3G is set as a preferred network.

It's an issue that still hasn't gotten fix as seen here.

I'm going to have to buy a different phone because I have no signal almost everywhere I go. I switched my SIM to my wife's Note 2 and I had great signal and her SIM in the N5 had no signal.

The issue seem to be gone after couple days. I checked signal strength app, it shows same even though it shows only 1 bar.
