Talking Consumer Reports: iPhone 4 = Design Flaw

We have all known the iPhone 4 had a design flaw. But now a more widely accepted, mainstream source has acknowledged it too.

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/07/13/te...pple.html?_r=1


Personally, I cant wait to throw this in the face of apple fanbois! How Apple managed to repeat antenna/reception issues and make them even worse I have no idea. I wonder if anyone will be (or has been) fired over this.

Re: Consumer Reports: iPhone 4 = Design Flaw

I do get a kick out of this.

But, for me the TP2 also has a design issue in that I have to be careful how I hold it. I'm right handed, and my little finger just loves to cover the microphone hole.

I'm not equating the 2.

Re: Consumer Reports: iPhone 4 = Design Flaw

I have not had any issues with my phone. I am enjoying the switch i made and would not discouraging anyone here from choosing whatever phone works for them. Personal preference and it is a shame that there has to be any flaming.

People who flame are insecure individuals.

Re: Consumer Reports: iPhone 4 = Design Flaw

It actually gets better...

CNET is reporting that the company's forum moderators are deleting any mention of Consumer Reports' findings that the antenna issue is an inherent design flaw, and not just a software issue.

It's like Christmas all over again.

Re: Consumer Reports: iPhone 4 = Design Flaw

I think I was reading some engadget user comments and some of them are hilarious. Apple fanboys chime in to say they don't have any reception issues, and that they have a case on their phone. Just totally ignorant on the issue and to come to apples rescue. Yes, its already been said that with a case it does fix the issue. They are idiots and I love this news! LOL

I agree that this is a problem, but why are you so happy that people's phones are failing @ reception?
