HTC Addresses HD7 Death Grip Issue

Posted by Nurhisham Hussein in "HTC Windows Phones" @ 10:00 PM

"...it is inevitable that a phone's signal strength will weaken a little when covered in its entirety by a user's palm or fingers. We test all of our phones extensively and are confident that under normal circumstances reception strength and performance will be more than sufficient for the operation of the phone when network coverage is also adequate."

It's been about a week since videos began circulating regarding a potential issue with the HD7's antenna. HTC's response, via Computer Weekly, appears to be - hey, it works, even if the bars aren't full. For the record, I've yet to run into any dropped calls or network issues no matter how I hold the phone, so it looks like HTC's largely right. Has anybody found reception getting worse if they hold the phone the "wrong" way?

The Return Of Antennagate: HD7 Edition

"[H]ere's the thing - according to a YouTube video shown below which seems to be a convincing one, HTC HD7 does lose signals when you hold your phone in a natural way or you subject your handset to the death grip as you like to call it."

And here I am, just having gotten the HD7 - it's hasn't even been unboxed yet! So, has anybody else seen this same issue? And if so, did HTC and Microsoft have to follow Apple's script so closely that they've run into the same problem with the HD7 as the iPhone 4?
