Anonymous, 23 Jul 2010Whether it's internal or external, weak spots still do exist. Some worse than others, but it'... moreA weak spot is in the IPhone 4 only, because other smartphones cover their antennas so u don't have to touch them with ur hand, that's why they r internal and that's why antennas should'nt be external. Since I saw a phone I never saw this issue until the IPhone 4 surfaced. The 3GS didn't suffer from it, and nobody complained, why would all those viddeos flood YouTube if that's the issue ?!
no one should ever buy an iphone.its the worst mobile in the history of mobile phones.and what can i say bout apple company.they r trying to degrade the public interest towards nokia?????how sad.

Some worse than others, but it's there. As Steve said, they could go on and on with other phones, but they don't have to. They simply wanted to show the media that the antennagate issue is not exclusive to the ip4. Apple was not blaming anyone at all. Matter of fact, he did say that the whole mobile industry is working hard to remedy antennagate, but haven't come to that point yet. This is Apple's first attempt with this design. They did pretty well if you think about it. The media spoiled it for them, but Apple won't stop until they can even improve on this design. I'm sure the media has learned something from this as well. They should learn to be more responsible and fair with their reporting. Fortunately for Apple, their users are indeed enjoying their ip4, and instead of getting returns, the preorders are still coming in strong. The media needs to be more careful. It seems like the public are not listening to them anymore.
Funny! Is that how you would hold the phone naturally? Fail Steven Jobs, Fail Apple!

Search twitter, facebook, google and see how many people are complaining about iphone4 reception. Even apple admit .5x% people complain about it, which is nearlly 16k people complain about reception issue. You should also note that most of people has complained on At&t about this issue, so clearly thousands of people have problem. Most of people who are complaining are businessmen who attend more than 20 call per day.
wat the..this is unacceptable move from apple..i believe a legal lawsuit is coming on way against apple. apple NEVER learn from its mistakes since the press conference issuing on the anntenagate. $%^@$^&%#@

Early reviews from users and tech websites were praising the ip4's improved reception and call quality. And then came that youtube video of the ip4 with the antennagate that caught the media's attention, and that's how this whole thing started out, and the media just went out of control with it.
Take note, even before that ip4 death grip youtube video, there were already several youtube videos of other phones displaying antennagate problems. But the media only picked on the ip4 as if it's a new issue exclusive to the ip4. The media singled out the ip4 on an issue that all smartphones suffer from.
How would you feel if you and 20 of your other co-workers all made the same error, but your boss only picked on you and wrote you up and reported you to HR and didn't bother with the others? While the others just kept quiet pretending to have not done anything wrong. What would you do?

Again, Apple was not blaming the others, but the media. Antennagate is not a big issue. People are not dropping calls with antennagate. Apple only wanted to prove to the media that the ip4 is not the only phone with antennagate.

Its not time to find fault on others when you are having a big fault on you.It is hypocritical as the bible says "Brother, allow me to extract the straw that is in your eye,’ while you yourself are not looking at the rafter in that eye of yours? Hypocrite! First extract the rafter from your own eye, and then you will see clearly how to extract the straw that is in your brother’s eye."

Tech, 22 Jul 2010Wow after reading the comments I am amazed to see so many comments on Apple, I am a profession... moreSo ... you as an Antenna and Chip Designer, do you think Iphone4 has a flaw in the design that allow the user to touch the antenna ???
Anonymous, 23 Jul 2010But who cares? No one's complaining about Nokia N97's reception issues... or any other compan... moreThats right and the other cell manufactures dont have to have a press conferance regarding their antenna design.Its only a very poor attempt by apple to take the focus off of themself.
You never saw toyota looking for 1 example saying, look ford or gm had the same problem as us.
Im iphone fan..I swear I will NO use the iphone again..the reason is very simple..I take a look with my friend's phones NOKIA X6 32GB,HTC Desire..you know after testin g and playing ..thats definetly make me think my iphone is really LAME..Now Im ju z very upset with my iphone..
Before this..Im using the iphon e 3gs..and now use the new iphone 4 just brought 2wee ks ago..now,I decided to presents my iphone 4 for my girlfrien d because thats suitable for her is not in business work..
I TOTALLY cant do my job use in iphone 4..everybody knews the new iphone 4 cannot read PDF files or Office documents perfectly..but the point is iphone CAN'T do real multitasking..its make me muzt reopen or restart all my apps before/a f ter I switching my apps..
Again..Im very dissapoint the iphone 4 audio system..no BASS or Stereo surround..this is poor speaker clearly show not juz in playing music but playing movies..althoug h iphone 4 can play HD 720 video but the sounds out from da video is worse..
Whether iphone 4 has high resolution 640x960,gyroscope..but these feature is totally not in work..the high resolution is kind a grea t..but its juz used when you "zooming"..without zooming you totally cannot see anything in Web..so is same compared with iphone 2g,3g,3gs..I means you gonn a to use zoom,if not everything wa s sam e with the past generatio n iphone..again,if you think 640x960 resolutio n can kee p you has a smooth visual..but for me I think amoled scree n is damn bette r than iphone ip s lcd..I dont think st3ve j0b is kno w he doing what for us..as iphone fan..he really make me upse t..I always hope appl e can upgrade the phone quickly in some useful features..everytime I get dissapointed when I giving hope to apple cg..now again,the antenna reception issues..my iphone has the same problem too..
We know (iphone fan) iphone os 4.o is upgraded but all is so standard (basic) in nowaday..so what if iphone 4 upgraded with these features:
-multitasking but NOT REAL
you know??? My budd y is use NOKIA N97..¡t got the all functions iphone have likes above..this make me really think iphone is a rubbish .. he said h e juz download>installed them at NOKIA Applications Store(OVI store) after that use in directly..
I was so regret that Im late to"wake up" Im use more money on the lame iphone before..I decided to buy a NOKIA or HTC phone after 2 da ys..
And I will not to be a f0ol again..
Just tried this on my Demo Nokia N97 mini (i work for a phone retailer) and alas no drop in reception, no mater how hard i squeezed or how much of the handset i coverd with my hands...
But who cares? No one's complaining about Nokia N97's reception issues... or any other company's reception issues.
Fact is people ARE complaining about the iPhone's reception...
What is the point of these experiments? Try million different ways to hold a phone and find a way of holding the phone that maybe one in million people use and when it interferes with the reception say that other company has a problem with reception?
Why is Apple doing this when NO ONE is complaining about other companies' phones except their own...
