i know this is an old thread, but this is my first grass cutting season with the m8 and man the signal sucks (both wifi and lte) compared to my old s4. i used to be able to cut all 2.5 acres and never had to switch to 4g unless on the far end of the property. the m8 barely holds a signal out my front door, and there's almost no difference if i check the wifi boost setting. 4g is also worse and harder to catch - i'm in a poor signal area. the throughput is better on the m8, but dammit without a steady connection it's pretty terrible to use... running venom 3.2.1 btw and won't switch roms b/c of the freaking google music deactivation limit. i'm pretty sure i'll switch to apple music b/c of this when it's available.
FWIW, you can get around the Google Music deactivation limit. Install Titanium Backup and use it to back up your Android ID. Then, when you install another rom, before using Google Music, install Titanium Backup and restore your previous Android ID. You won't hear a peep out of Google Music about deactivation limits. I have the paid version. Not sure if the paid version is required for this or not but it can't hurt to check it out. You can always restore a nandroid of your current setup.
