I just tested my Nokia 5230. I held it with both my palms and even though I tried my best not even 1 signal line went down and it still showed a full signal , indoors.
Apple and HTC should learn how to make phone instead of just cool gadgets for show-off.

Funny I don't remember this being the case when every Tom Dick and Harry was too busy bashing the iPhone 4. Did anyone bother trying to understand the problem perfectly then? Not so nice to be onthe receiving end now is it?
tkolev, 03 Dec 2010HTC's phones loosing some bars of reception is nothing like Apple's dropped calls. Stop compar... moreI've never had a dropped call on my iPhone 4 in four months of use, and it's not as if mobile phones haven't been dropping calls for years, ever since they were invented.
Asad, 03 Dec 2010GSMarena thanks for pointing out the issue which will make manufactures to be concerned before... moreRubbish, to make a call you have to hold the phone from the top and who does that?
Is that the you-know-who who RESPONDED to claims like those made by you-know-who-too, when they said this was an Apple only issue.
What goes around comes around, Apple was absolutely correct with their refutation of other companies claims.
Too bad no-one cares about insignificant companies from the Republic of China or this would be hitting the mainstream news with an enormous song and dance about it's impact.
GSM arena even try to play it down as it's NOT Apple.
Every phone, EVERY, loses a bar or more of signal. Even Nokia phones with their great antennas.
well done HTC admitting to the problem but not brushing it off by saying other manufacturers have the same problem.
Anonymous, 03 Dec 2010what people had not realise is that iphone4 antennagate was public stunt. wonder why iphone 4 ... moreoh wow! and that's actually every device they would of sold this year compared to Nokia's- 110million and
Apple's-14 million for Q3 of the 2010
Stuntman, 03 Dec 2010None of the signal loss videos that I have seen on the HTC show the phone actually losing the ... morei grip so hard on my iph4 and still no complete loss of signal at least in /uk lol
None of the signal loss videos that I have seen on the HTC show the phone actually losing the signal completely. This is the main difference between the iPhone 4 and HTC. The iPhone 4 videos show the iPhone 4 losing the signal completely. Losing a couple of bars is nothing. Losing all bars and losing connection is severe. You can still make and receive calls if you have bars. You cannot when you lose the connection entirely.
GSM Arena should have known this difference before they lump HTC into the same group as the iPhone 4. GSM Arena clearly do not fully understand the iPhone 4 signal issue and are only writing this article just to make some headlines and draw interest. Now, every time they see the bars drop (which happens on every phone), they think there is an antenna issue which there clearly isn't. It would only be an issue if the phone completely loses signal from full bars like on the iPhone 4.
I'm glad HTC does not try to drag other manufacturers through the mud. I've used other phones and at times can cause some signal loss if I really try. Under normal conditions, I don't have any issues going from full bars to total signal loss. Even if I try, I cannot get the other phones I have used (none of them iPhones) to go from full bars to total signal loss.
[deleted post]look what u using everyday and will find out 80% made by asians!! it is so 60's thinking everything made in asia is bad
what people had not realise is that iphone4 antennagate was public stunt. wonder why iphone 4 sell more than any other iphone gen?? people realise iphone 4 after antennagate and bought over 14milliions and found out it is just gimmick and not true.
Unbelievable that another company would release a phone with these reception issues again.Bad screen, poor reception, crippled OS = bad phone.
huh .. what happened to HTC !!! HTC desire hd fail . Samsung galaxy s won . and on windows 7 phone ~~~ HTC hd7 fail ---) Samsung omnia 7 won . Samsung youare great and we love you
I just made the test, inside my house with 2 phones "AT&T" My Nokia N95 8gb and my Nokia N8 I place my hands all over them no problem at all!!
