I recently bought the transparent cover for my FP2 (finally! Looks super awesome 8). Up to now, I was using the indigo one. Not sure if it’s my imagination but to me it seems that the signal of my phone improved considerably with the new cover.
At my working place I generally had a bad signal. I have to leave the building or go close to the windows to have a 3G connection. Now it seems that I have the 3G signal at the place where I’m working.
The bad signal performance was bothering me for a long time, since it caused a pretty fast draining of the battery since the phone is always searching for the signal.
I have my reservations as well.
Still there is the fact, that the transparent covers are made from a different material, not using recycled materials.
Should that really improve reception, that would be good to know.
Maybe FP already has measured it? If not, maybe the could do so? @Monica.Ciovica, do you happen to have any info on that behalf?
If I am right, this might be a cause for higher battery consumption as well, as a low signal is countered by more energy for getting a signal. Or am I wrong there?
Just added the question for info directed at FP.
You can verify it at the battery consumption in Android. If the signal is red there, then its a cause of higher battery consumption. I have this issue, but I live pretty much between 3 4G towers. So I have bad reception indoors, at home. I just disable 4G whilst at home. There’s an Automate flow for that, though Automate Premium doesn’t work outside Play Services. I actually had completely lost 4G signal at home with the weaker SIM card (other one is a diff provider but small plan), and in general. Only once I cleaned the contacts and SIM cards (dunno if it was one or the other) I had a good reception once again.
