Consumer Reports Slams New iPhone

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB ... 63011516770540.html

[excerpt]

Consumer Reports said its tests show a hardware defect causes the iPhone 4 to lose reception when held a certain way, challenging Apple Inc.'s claims that the problem is rooted in software that can be easily fixed.

The product-quality watchdog said Monday it can't recommend the newest iPhone despite otherwise high marks, dinging a company that for many shoppers can do no wrong. It was the first time Consumer Reports has failed to give the thumbs up for an Apple phone.

Apple redesigned the iPhone for this release, putting the antenna on the outside in a metal band running around the frame. But the unusual design puts the antenna in closer contact with hands and fingers, which antenna experts said makes it susceptible to signal problems.

Consumer Reports said it had tested other smartphones in its labs, including the previous iPhone 3GS model as well as the Palm Pre, and found none showed the same loss of signal as the iPhone 4.

"Our findings call into question the recent claim by Apple that the iPhone 4's signal-strength issues were largely an optical illusion caused by faulty software," Consumer Reports wrote in a blog post.

Apple didn't respond to requests for comment.

I love this aspect of capitalism

if it sucks it fails

if it is great you buy it

that is how it should be

A good company build its reputation on its products

3GS is just fine,
not so much difference technically.
Just make shure to jailbreak
