Difference in signal strength between SIM slot 1 and slot 2?

Has anyone else noticed any difference? I seem to have a better LTE signal in slot 2 over slot 1.

Sitting in my office speedtest shows me:

4.28Mps download and 5.15Mps upload in with the SIM in slot 1.

11.33Mps download and 2.35Mps upload in SIM slot 2.

Also, there's an "L" that shows up beside my signal bar which doesn't show up when I'm in slot 1.

Should there be any difference?

Interesting. My AT&T "Slot 1" sim is pretty weak, while my T-Mobile sim in slot 1 is getting much stronger signal, both at home and at work. I'd swap them to test, but I'm kind of afraid that it will mess up messages and WhatsApp etc. Definitely interested in other people's experience.

Trust me nothing will happen to messages or whatsapp. I've swapped it at least 5-6 times back and forth. It will give an error that there's no data connection and you have to activate data on that sim slot. That's it.
