I've watched a couple videos on this now and in every one the people filming are not in an area where they have full bars of coverage. As it was stated a million times before, you can't gauge true signal strength on bars alone but if it's any indication, the phones in the videos are starting minus 1-2 of them, thus making the perceived attenuation that much more dramatic.

And in every video, the grips they're using are completely unrealistic. You almost need a third hand to get it to drop. Sensationalism at its best.

From past experiences dating back to 386 machines, I've always personally scoffed at Apple and there products. When I started to use there products on a daily basis is when I lost my prejudice. That is all.

so what you're saying is...you like apple products...because theyre compatible with other apple products?

You do realize when this issue came to light, Apple released a "fix" to their software that put the bar representation closer to an equal representation than it previously was at because they had is largely skewed toward displaying 4-5 bars at all times? You do know one of their major selling points initially was that they had higher signal strength than the competition, which turns out to be a completely false statement because it's pretty obvious they displayed a standard of measurement in manner consistent with intentionally misleading consumers in regards to the quality of their product? That's like selling measuring cups with the 3/4 marker where the 1/2 marker should be, then telling people they have to put in less water to make 3/4 cups if they use their measuring cups.

Also, I don't know what you're saying with "completely unrealistic" grips. If by "completely unrealistic" you mean "the natural manner in which a hand would grip a phone," then I guess you're correct.

Fanboy, at its worst.

iphone is one of the highest qualities phones ive had...i have a bold now, the only problems with the iphone is poor battery life (barely lasts a day on moderate usage) and constant jailbreak/OS lock crap that apple shoves in their updates...

other then that its definitely up there on being a very quick and responsive phone

Oh of course, I must be a fanboy for making a completely obvious statement. Goodness get over yourself. What I previously posted had nothing to do with last years antenna-gate. Stop trying to paint everyone as fanboys that you disagree with.

Watch some of the videos out there for the VERIZON iPhone. If you hold your phone like that normally, you have bigger problems than signal attenuation. It'd be like getting upset when your signal drops after dropping the phone in a bucket of water. It's completely unrealistic. Not to mention that this sort of things affects just about every smartphone on the market. But when it happens to an Apple phone, watch out.

Interesting, my friend has an iphone that apparently lasts a couple days with moderate usage (phone calls and browsing internet)

Here is the solution people: Buy a case/cover. Although I know some people would complain about having to buy something that they shouldnt need, plenty of people purchase cases/cover for their phones.
