The iPhone 4 is defective by design ... get used to it! [zdnet.com]
The issue might not affect everyone, but those affected by the iPhone 4 “grip of death” problem need to understand that the design flaw isn’t going to be solved by something as simple as a software update.
There’s little doubt that the iPhone 4 (or at least some handsets under certain signal conditions) suffers from signal degradation when the handset is held “the wrong way” (specifically, in the left hand where a finger can bridge the gap between the two halves of the antenna which forms part of the chassis). Plenty of testing has been done and for the skeptics out there there is video evidence. The problem undoubtedly exists.
