why take something with high accuracy and make it nice an inaccurate by
reducing its resolution to basically 5 levels? other than being able to say "i
only get 2 bars here!" just display it with all the pixels you have available.
add something for those who must get a numeric quantifier when you click on it
or something (for full signal/network etc. info).
