It looks as if the iPhone isn’t the only cell phone with an antenna problem. Check out the Cliqz list of phones which even warn against using a death grip in their manuals. Turnabout is fair play, no? From AI:
Nokia’s official blog has jumped on the iPhone 4 “death grip” bandwagon in a posting that suggests the company’s mobiles don’t share the same issues related to blocking a phone’s antenna, despite having earlier published instructions that tell users to avoid holding its phones in a way that might block the antenna.
In other words, all modern cell phones have a similar attenuation problem which may require users to hold the phone differently. So, what do those five bars that display signal strength really mean?
