But based on our user reports, you can have a good idea which phones are consistently giving better signal results. Top 5 Cell Phones With the Best Signal Strength

5. A Good Voice MemoThanks God, most phones have a voice memo system, but not all of them.

As a bonus, some phones, like the Samsung e335, allow you to record a memo and email it to someone.
