    Yes, you get a true reading of the strength.

    There is no independent proof that the number Apple used to show was the true signal strength.

    I'm not sure it matters if the Dbm reading was absolutely spot on, what it did seem to represent was consistency in signal strength from location to location and from that a method of finding out where, in a building for instance, the strongest signal was available. Something the bars are too coarse a measurement to have value. At least that's what I took from it.

    I miss the dBm readings on the previous versions of iOS.
    I'm still getting used to the "bars" on iOS 11 and trying to hold out as much as possible on my work issued iPhone 7
