Apple So, the iPhone 4 has been out for a while, and is getting mostly pretty good reviews - there's one major sore spot, though. Apple made this hoopla about their fancy antenna thingie, but as it turns out, this thingie is kind of a design flaw, causing signal loss (and dropped calls) for some people. Despite downplaying by Steve Jobs himself, AnandTech has done a thorough investigation, and they've found out that the problem - which affects every mobile phone - is a whole lot worse on the iPhone 4 due to the new antenna. At the same time, however, the iPhone has much better reception in low signal situations. What?

Most people I know will be buying an Otterbox, or some other case, for the iPhone 4 as soon as the new cases are released and that will eliminate the problem. I will probably be buying an iPhone 4 at some point. I use AT&T but I live in the Southern United States (Little Rock, Arkansas to be exact) and AT&T coverage is actually pretty good here and due to lower population density we don't have the signal overcrowding issues that larger denser cities have.
