I recently felt Samsung S3, I have is showing lesser signal. I complained with my service provider about this. Naturally they denied any system failure from their side. Now is there a way to measure android gsm umts rf signal strength by myself using the phone so that, I can directly deal with the Operator Customer care, explaining the signal loss. Hope someone come forward with a solution.
Is there a way to measure android gsm umts rf signal strength.
Yes, there are so many apps available in Android market for measuring and tracking the GSM/3G umts rf signal. One of the app is ADVANCED CELL NETWORK MONITOR, that I am also using in my Xperia mobile. Advanced cell network monitor gives the information of surrounding base including cell id's, LAC, signal strength level. This app easily work on GSM as well as 3G networks, but neighboring cells are shown only in GSM network. This app uses Google Geolocation to define approximate cell address. An additional information for Samsung user's, this app works inconsistent on SGSII and Galaxy Note. Below are the snap-shots of app:
