Thanks for sharing your observations.
Problem definitely persist without Stamina.
But charger is something new and really can help because device always awake.

Hello Bonoboo!
I am decided to push SNR to the limits, is there a way to find any conductive point of the antenna? I dont even seem to find the antenna itself! Maybe you have some pics of antenna or some pics with arrows I dont seem to find any materials on this model board.
Do you think it's worth doing it?
Thank you!

Hi,
Open battery cover – antenna located in left corner, left and up from camera.
It's snake-shaped cooper foil integrated into "sticker" and it's part of back cover.
Be careful, you can damage it if start to unstick (I tried).
On other internal side two contacts that applied to board.

Antenna developed with working parameters: frequency, length of wave etc.
So deep changes may cause worth signal strength.

Anyway, if you decide apply some modding please share your experience here.

P.S. Just for info: service docs
