There is nothing you can do to fix it.
If it's faulty you will have to get it fixed.
We recommend talking to Samsung directly http://www.samsung.com/uk/support/
Do you actually suffer from dropped calls etc or is the signal bar just low?
All phones show differently and doesn't necessarily mean a fault.

Apple always increase their signal meter to make it look better than it actually might be, so if comparing signal level directly to an iPhone, I would expect the Samsung to show lower anyway.
