Well recent 5-way extra-small antennas are getting better signal if 
sitting on roof rather than on the smartphone.  BEsides, they catch not 
only 4G but also GPS and 802.11p.

The reception of a typical smartphone inside the car is great some 
times, but less so other times.  If just some little browsing then 
reception is not a problem.  But a 24/7 audio/video stream is improved 
by better antennas in certain areas and with thermally-thick windows.
