HTC has came out fighting claiming that its new duel-core handset does not suffer the death grip issue that plagued Iphone 4.
There have been repports the smart looking aluminium body of the phone will interfere with wireless communications such as signal, Bluetooth and WIFI, when the device is held in a certain way.
There are videos that seem to back this claim up however they also show that the device is being held in a pretty strange way, and this has been backed up by HTC.
“No. Every phone experiences a slight variation in signal strength when the antenna is covered in its entirety by a palm or fingers, however under normal circumstances this does not affect the performance of the phone,” a spokesperson told TechRadar.
So what is holding I phone normally, the position we hold a phone may vary for example using the internet in bed using a WIFI stream, or receiving a file through Bluetooth, however personal experience on the phone did not seem to have any issues with any connectivity loss when using the device ( and I have quite large hands! )
And the WIFI signal seemed to trump that of the Samsung galaxy s 2.
