Last Friday at Apple Press Conference, Steve Jobs said every smartphone has death grip reception and antenna attenuation problem. Nokia and RIM took serious note of Steve Jobs statement and responded angrily that Apple should work on its iPhone 4 antenna design rather than blaming them. But some curious guys like BoyGenius worked on that Steve Jobs statement and performed tests on BlackBerry Bold 9650 and HTC Google Nexus One, both high-end mobile phones from RIM and HTC.
BlackBerry Bold 9650 Death Grip Test:
Google Nexus One Death Grip Test
Both of the phones failed the test, looks like Jobs was right. So does that mean Apple iPhone 4 has no reception problem? or every smartphone have the Antennagate issue?
