Nexus S users -- how's your WiFi strength?
OK, folks, we're looking for input here -- how is the WiFi performance on your Nexus S? I noticed today while fooling around in my living room that I'm not getting the best throughput while on WiFi from my Nexus S. I'm not the only one that seems to have noticed, SPE Senior Editor-in-Chief Dieter (check out his hands-on here) says his experience is mixed, but it does seem weak, and Engadget's Mobile Editor Chris Ziegler has seen what he calls "miserable wifi signal strength" on his unit as well.
I won't go quite that far, and I'm not into the miserable range here, but there's enough difference to warrant some testing -- so that's what I did. We already found out that Samsung and Google are using a low-power WiFi chip on the Nexus S, is it possible that it's a little too low-power? Maybe phones like the Nexus One, or the Motorola Droid and their extra-strong WiFi radio have spoiled us, but we're really interested in your feedback. Grab the WiFi Analyzer app from the market (link after the break) and share what you got in the Nexus S forums.
