Smartphones not as good as old mobiles at making calls

Mobile phones have evolved significantly over the past several years, with large technology giants such as Apple and Samsung focusing on adding as many bells and whistles as possible. However, the quality of the phone’s most basic function may have actually declined. A new study, carried out by industry regulator Ofcom, revealed that modern-day smartphones do not offer the same level of signal performance compared to the handsets of the past. The researchers carried out tests in laboratory conditions and found that the cheaper (older) devices were better at picking up weak signals. Smartphones, on average, required a signal at least seven times stronger than the average non-smartphone on a 2G network. Meanwhile, the worst smartphone performer on a 3G network required a signal nine times stronger than the GSMA recommended minimum. Some of the smartphones included in the study needed a signal at least 10 times stronger than what non-smartphones required in order to function. The findings support claims that some of the high-end materials used in modern-day smartphones may be the cause of calls cutting off.
