Nexus S 4G gets an update to improve 3G signal

Nexus_s_sprint_software_update

Earlier this week, we noted that many 4G devices seems to have trouble with 3G signals and wondered if we had duds or if this was a universal problem. Well, it looks like it is in fact a universal problem for at least the Nexus S 4G, as an update for the phone has just been released that is supposed to "improve signal strength and acquisition." 

The update will begin hitting devices on the 11th of this month and will include a number of new features aside from the signal boost. Some of these include a 4G toggle widget, more secure NFC support, improved WiFi connectivity, speakerphone tweaks, and tuned signal strength indicators.

Despite this update, we're still curous about whether other 4G devices are suffering from the same problem. If they are, then a similar update should be pushed to them in the near future. If not, we will still be left to wonder what else is wrong with our shiny new 4G devices.
