How to improve reception on the LG Google Nexus 4 Android phone

In common with many smartphones the orientation of the Nexus 4 makes quite a difference to reception. You can improve the received signal level on the Nexus 4 simply by rotating it. Looking at the front of the phone, rotate it 90 degrees clockwise, so the top is to the right. Astonishingly the received signal level goes up around 8 dB – that is a factor of six times stronger.

It also helps to hold the phone along the bottom edge to minimise the effect of your hand on reception.

Follow these tips and you’ll find that coverage is better and web surfing in marginal locations suddenly becomes easy. One problem though – it’s not exactly convenient for making phone calls…
