Is it just me, or for those that have used both phones, is there a difference in reception on the M8 vs. the Icon? It seems to be weaker and I have more times when people have trouble hearing me because the signal is weak. I was sitting in the movie theater last night and my M8 was going between 1x and 3g. My wife's Icon was showing a good LTE signal.

My first thought is, stay off your phone in the theater....

That said, I get fine reception vs. everyone else around me.

It is possible the aluminum constructions slightly hampers signal.

I think both have excellent signal, but now I'm wondering if the shell case I used on both phones helped in any way with the metal of the phone by shielding it. Your M8 in a case at all?

No case on my M8. Even in my office, the M8 is weaker and my calls have some trouble. Maybe I have a bad one, I don't know.

I am not sure on the Icon but my last three phones were IPhone's and my M8 has better reception then those did. I work in a metal building and my iPhone would always loose connection, my M8 stays connected all day.
