Signal attenuation is not unique to the iPhone, also affects Nokia and HTC devices

Sat, Jul 3, 2010


Nokia had some fun at Apple’s expense earlier this week when they posted a sarcastic blog post explaining the multitude of ways users can hold Nokia devices while making calls and avoiding signal degradation. But a decrease in signal depending on how one holds a phone is not a problem unique to the iPhone 4. In the videos below, users recreate the same reception problems plaguing the recent iPhone by gripping the device around the location of the antenna.

Here’s the Nokia E71 getting the treatment.

And here’s the HTC Droid Incredible.
