Consumer Reports is a well known website that tests out a wide range of gadgets and products, they have just finished testing the iPhone 4 and although it scored highly in their tests they have decided to not recommend the iPhone 4.
The reason for this is because of the iPhone 4 antenna issues, Consumer Reports ran a number of tests on the iPhone 4 and found the antenna issue, the tests were performed in a controlled environment and found the same signal problems that many iPhone 4 users have reported.
It’s official. Consumer Reports’ engineers have just completed testing the iPhone 4, and have confirmed that there is a problem with its reception. When your finger or hand touches a spot on the phone’s lower left side—an easy thing, especially for lefties—the signal can significantly degrade enough to cause you to lose your connection altogether if you’re in an area with a weak signal. Due to this problem, we can’t recommend the iPhone 4.
We haven’t really heard anything much from Apple on the iPhone 4 reception issues, although a number of threads mentioning the Consumer Reports article have been deleted from their support forums.
It does make us wonder if Apple are just hoping that the iPhone 4 reception issues are going to disappear, they need to do something about them as their reputation for customer service which once was amazing is slowly going down hill.
