Telco Handheld Samsung Antenna - Direct Connect 2dBi - Eliminate 'death-grip' signal loss - High quality Samsung connector - Multi-band 2G/3G/4G - Very sticky 3M mounting surface - Suits Galaxy S2, S3, S4, Note 1, Note 2. We're proud to introduce an exciting new solution to poor phone and data service on your Samsung. This high quality antenna mounts directly on the back of your phone and connects into the external antenna port underneath the back cover. Typically a user experiences a phenomena known as signal 'death-grip' caused by absorption of signal by the hand when holding the phone. This impact can be as high as 17dB[1], requiring as high as 50x more signal power required to achieve a phone call when compared to using the phone hands-free.
What experience is typical?
Speaking conservatively, an increase of of 5-10dB is quite common which typically provides an extra 'bar' of service, however this will change depending on environment, antenna orientation, and of course how you normally hold your phone. Please see below images.
Important Warning
The antenna and connector are very durable, however your Samsung's PCB connector is designed as a test port which is fine for normal operation but may not survive rough treatment. While we supply thousands of the Samsung leads worldwide we do hear of a handful of users having snapped the connector off the back of the phone's circuit board. The following guidelines are recommended to protect your phone:
  • Place phone on flat surface when inserting connector
  • Insert connector at a right angle only
  • Do not apply sideways force to connector
  • Avoid placing phone in pocket or place where connector may snag on clothing
  • Use common sense.
If you doubt your ability to treat your phone with care - do not purchase this product.
