There must be difference in the network in your area. I did a comparison if the Desire, Electrify and Hero S at the USCC store and found all to be at -90dBm. There was an Electrify that was in a different spot and it was at -83dBm and my Desire was at -85dBm so they seemed very close.

When I have a chance I will try and make test calls with the Electrify and Hero S in our Kohl's. Kohl's is the only place I have lost signal, but I cant remember if I was on the TP2 or the Desire. Also, if able I can test at our County Jail facility. Only Verizon customers get reception in the conference room there and if the Electrify could get a signal there it would be worth it for me to have signal when I am in a training or working on our DR equipment in the server room.
