Hi,

I'm just wondering, is it normal for an iPhone 5s to have a much weaker cellular reception than a galaxy s5?
My wife has a 5s, I have a galaxy, we're both using the same carrier and the same type of contract, but she can barely get 3g connection when I am getting
H+ with 42mbit.

Is that something normal, or is her phone busted?

Lol
I heard about how that can have an influence on iPhones, didn't think was that bad.

That was an issue only with the 4/4S. It could be something wrong with the phone. Take it to an apple store.

It does seem like something is wrong with the iPhone. Or it could just be due to the metal construction.
Try comparing it with another iPhone.

Every phone has a different reception. It depends on the radio, the voltage and the firmware.

Not to mention metal interferes severely with a signal, whereas plastic does not. (Which is one of the reasons why Samsung uses plastic.)
