You shouldn't be seeing such a difference in genuine signal levels- does it take longer to get a fix on your Trinity? It may be that TTN is misreporting the signal level, or you may have an antenna problem. If the fix times are similar, you may not have a real problem.
Have you tried a GPS app with a more comprehensive display of signal levels?
The Orbit does use the slightly better 12 channel SIRFStar III chip than the Trinity's 8 Channel Qualcomm chip, but comparative tests have shown little 'real world' difference- maybe a couple of minutes better TTFF on the Orbit.
The Orbit can use a program called QuickGPS which uses the phones cell info to give a location, which then downloads satellite data from HTC's website. Although the facility is built into the Trinity (A-GPS) there is as yet no software which implements it.
