Apple is simply displaying other brands if the person isn't using adaptive handing techniques, like Apple's case where poor user interfacing to the product will produce the same negative user effect.
essentially Making their point that, if correct technique(s) are applied the Antenna issue doesn't therefore exist.
Negative reviewers therefore are just going against Apple's simple request for some "forward thinking techniques, perhaps trend setting?" as your using the advance device, not just apply poor ho hum knowledge and skill in the process of answering and call receiving.
Change is hard people, and Apple is making in roads, change with them, or be left behind.
i have a nokia n97 mini and i held it in the "death grip", and it lost maybe two bars before going back up again to normal and im currently in a 5 storey concete building on the lower level and ive got no probs. its all a load of cr@p and quite funny!!!

We iphone users apprecia... moreEverybody knows that soon or later, for somehow or somewhere or what you prefer..... you are going to loose the signal, it doesn't matter how or when. There will never be a perfect cellular, the market would never allow it!
My question to you is: what did those iphone users had for cellular before iphone 4G come out? a drum-set? If someone have never had a cellular before, I'm sure they have friends who own one. I'm also almost sure that the media made a big thing of this antennagate, but Apple shouldn't have act like it did.
If the cusotomers are unhappy, big boss at Applie doens't mind packing his bag and going home. After all he has made enough money. Put some duct tape over the phone and it will work.
Jteve Sobs, 26 Jul 2010Ha ha.. free case.. look how high end your iphone is. With all the money they have ammased by ... moreI'm quite fond of SOME apple products... (namely iMac, iPod 'n iPhone 3G) but... I must admit, I hafta agree with you here, all this Antennagate ruckus is ridiculous...
Apple is just making up LAME excuses and pointing their fingers @ other companies - I mean, how can ppl cope up with that? I'm a fan, but I'm not stupid nor blind...
No support and no love from me for the iPhone 4... Apple's attitude is ridiculous... Begone Antennagate!!!
Dear iPhone User,
I recommend you to use a hand-free kit while making or answering a call. Problem solved! =)
Anonymous, 26 Jul 2010No reason for us iphone users to be angry. The iphone is doing just fine :) Non-iphone users ... moreHa ha.. free case.. look how high end your iphone is. With all the money they have ammased by stealing/copying/reverse engineering technology and still managing to stay as outdated as ever, they are giving away free cases !! What the **** !! This issue deserved a recall and a hard fix like realigning the antenna but they were dumb enough to make it a single piece body ( again for the 3rd time ). Else they could have managed to just change the back cover with a neat plastic one.
Free Cases my foot
if anyone tells that iPhone's the best, must be living under a rock!!! They cant't even touch the Samsung's TECHNOLOGY and so far not even close to grip the Nokia's QUALITY!!!!!! ha..ha...ha...
[deleted post]If you would get your cellphone out of yours. you might be able to get a signal.
Camry, 25 Jul 2010I LOLed so hard at Samsung's ad. Cheers to Samsung for brightening up my day. =D If you i... moreyou explained it all well, you're the man! I also use ipad and ipod touch its just that its not proper by any means or any angle or whatever thinking you may do even outside the box, apple should not drag other mobile companies
Anonymous, 26 Jul 2010No reason for us iphone users to be angry. The iphone is doing just fine :) Non-iphone users ... morethen they should have tell the truth before, not in the way wherein they produced a crap phone and thats the time they will compare their carppy product to other. Does it makes sense
I am not sure if this is the best place to say this but i would like to give some feedback abt the pop out ad banner. I think it is ruining my reading experience on this website which i had visited for very long time. I would appreciate if something can be done to prevent the ad from popping out when the mouse cursor roll over it.
Apple chief executive Steve Jobs calls "perhaps the best product we've ever made."
Its very good. Hold it right and shut up about it.

Name another Iphone4.
The fact is, it's a design flaw. Instead Apple went skirting around the issue.
And what can you say about the Consumer Reports findings? That it's a piece of crap?
Anonymous, 26 Jul 2010No reason for us iphone users to be angry. The iphone is doing just fine :) Non-iphone users ... moregripping a phone from the bottom side is only normal.Who grips there phone from the middle or top.Queers

If you i... moreNo reason for us iphone users to be angry. The iphone is doing just fine :) Non-iphone users are the one who are angry. Because no matter how hard they try to bash the iphone, it's still a huge success :)
To answer your question. I cannot name you any phonemaker who had to drag other names to prove a point, because none of them were singled out by the media on a common issue like the iphone was. And correction, Apple did not condemn any other product. They only spoke the truth. Stop over reacting.
Let me throw back at you what you said. Yes, the ip4 has antennagate, but it does'nt happen in daily use either. Most especially when you have a case for it. You criticize the way the demonstrator held the other phones to make the bars drop. Well how about the way those demonstrators held the ip4 to make the bars drop as well? Why grip it on the lower left area when there's a lot of space to grip the iphone on its upper part? Just to make sure that the bars drop?
Stop telling Apple what they should do. They are not telling you to buy their iphone.
