    Default iPhone 4 reception issue with holding the phone


    The iPhone 4's apparent reception seems to decrease when you hold the phone in your hands (around the antennas). You can find a video demonstration after the break...

    LOL. I'm not even surprised. I knew that this will happen the first time I've seen the "new antena" design. )

    Why people don't buy Nokia phones instead of iPhones...I would probably never understand.

    Nokia has yet and probably never will make a phone to come anywhere close to an iPhone, even an iPhone with bad reception and poor battery is better than the best Nokia has to offer today which happens to be a

    Yeah, you are right. Nokia made phones so much better than the iPhone that I really lost count on. iPhone SUCKS! Big time! And this video is one more prove to that.

    There are so many things an iPhone can't do. For example, the brand new iPhone 4 has FINALLY implemented the video-calling feature, which Nokia and ALL other major manufacturers had for years. But that's not all. iPhone 4 can make video calling ONLY if you're near a wifi hotspot and ONLY with other iPhones!!! For God's sake! Why??

    Plus, they FINALLY came with the multitasking feature which Nokia had from the first Symbian device (which, if I recall well was the Nokia 7650 released like ages ago).

    The copy/cut-paste feature wasn't implemented until the release of the iPhone OS 3. That's another feature that Nokia had since the first Symbian device. You want more?
