According to the video above, holding your phone in the wrong manner can dramatically drop reception — a similar charge as to that aimed at Apple over the “antennagate” brouhaha. While the issue doesn’t seem to be identical — the iPhone lost its signal through attenuation from bridging a gap between two antennae, and this seems to be from covering an antenna too much — it does still appear as though it doesn’t take much to suffer a pretty hefty drop in signal.
If you have an HTC HD7, tell us if this is affecting you. How are you holding it when it loses reception? Are you squeezing it tightly or covering it completely? Or does it take only a light touch to kill your connection? Let us know in the comments.
