HD7 death grip...not just a rumor.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Im seriously considering return this phone. I actually was wondering why my signal would be such garbage when attempting to use the phone randomly at a place at school or something, and i'd be in class with great reception. I would take the phone out, and have like 2 bars or something, figured oh well thats normal. After holding the phone in the only comfortable grip while surfing the market place and stuff like that, I found that at times I would be hovering around 1 bar and sometimes with no reception. As soon as I removed my hand, boom! 5 bars + 3g back instantly!

Now, some articles may over exaggerate this, but I am freaking testing it right now, and to hold this phone in the only comfortable manner causes excruciating signal degradation, which is ridiculous.

No issues here. 4 bars in hand, 4 bars on desk inside at work as I type this. Swap out for a different handset?
