    It wasn't much of a feature if the only way to access it was to input a crazy code into the phone app to make it work.

    There is an app in the App Store called Faraday Test which will show those figures.

    It's always interesting to see what people consider deal-breakers in using a mobile-phone ecosystem.

    I'm no fan of Apple dumbing down the OS-hardware interface for everyone (hide it behind a button or something but eliminate it? And they do it for their Macs, routers,...). It just seems unnecessary. OTOH I can't recall the last time I looked for a signal-strength number after I discovered I could get it. Different strokes for different folks.

    Android is not too far behind: "Future Android versions may hide network signal strength: Here’s how to check on your phone"
