When you're comparing cell phones, consider the quality of reception in your living area. Are you in a rural area with good reception? Do you live far away from a cell tower and have problems keeping a signal? If you have frequent dropped calls, consider a cell phone with an external antenna for your next purchase.
Cell phones with smaller internal antennas work fine when the signal is good, but the best cell phone for poor reception ares is one with the external antenna. The bottom line is simple science. The larger the antenna, the better the reception.
