I remember I never had any problems of reception with my Galaxy S. In any case, Samsung is very good in aggressively remedying the problems with one generation, with the next. I couldn't recommend the Galaxy S. Yet I would recommend the Galaxy S2 absolutely without a doubt. The phone is that good. Does Rogers have the S2 already? I'm not sure if they do. They do have the Infuse which is somewhere between the S and S2 in generations.
The problems I have with my generic Galaxy S, none of them involves reception however. It can simply be that service of Rogers in your area just simply stinks. You have to consider that possibility.
In any case, Rogers is also offering the EVO 3D and the Optimus 3D. I'm a bit biased in choosing the HTC but the Optimus 3D is cheaper.
