Droid X suffers from Death Grip too, says Apple
Gee whiz, not this again! Apple has updated its Antennagate webpage to include, you guessed it, the Droid X. According to Apple, that within its super-secret dungeon of doom, zero gravity, and reception absorption, if you hold the Droid X in inappropriate ways, you will lose signal bars, as you have seen with the iPhone 4. Check out the video for yourself:
To me, it looks like that Apple tester is putting a great amount of pressure on the back of the Droid X during the presentation, so much that the phone starts to shake. Apple, you really are grasping at straws trying to prove your antenna issues are normal, when clearly your device has a hardware flaw. But anyway...
Back to the question at hand. Have any Droid X users noticed signal "attenuation" during normal usage? Then if you could, hold your phone that way, and let us know your results.
What are they grasping at really?
I had no issues at all. Not even a single bar. I guess some people may experience the loss of a bar or two, but i highly doubt its enough to drop a phonecall.
I don't think it is as bad!
We just tested this theory! A friend of mine here has the Droid X and another has the new Iphone 4. The tower that is nearby is 1200 feet away and it contains both ATT and Verizon equipment. The Droid lost only 1 bar and the Iphone dropped all bars.
Also 99% of the people will not be gripping the Droid X that way, as there will be some space between the palm of your hand and the phone. NOT FLAT AGAINST IT.
