    In phone reviews and discussions, why is there rarely any discussion of RF
    abilities (signal acquiring/holding) or audio quality? One might assume
    that the reason is that all phones are about equal, so it's just not an
    issue. However, I'm in the U.S. on 1900 and from my experience the phone
    makes a huge difference. The same was true at Sprint (where Sanyos were the
    best in this area).



    Is there a general opinion on brands?



    Right now I'm looking at Seimens (CX65 or S65), Moto (E398) or SE (K700).
    Leaving aside partisan bias, would you expect one to have better performance
    *as a phone*?



    TIA

    I am with you.
    A long time ago, some magazines tested RF performance and published the
    capabilities telling -db values.
    But nothing like that for years now...
    I would appreciate such an information too.

    SE has the poorest RF since they use internal antennas.

    .... or rather any phone which uses an internal antenna.

    BTW I found a SE t68 gave just as good RF performance as Nokias with
    internal antennas.
