I'm also glad CS reported the truth.
Steve Jobs must be kicking himself right now for saying to hold the iPhone 4 a different way instead of actually putting out a decent product in the first place. Then again, he just tricked a lot of people into buying a crappy "phone" and take their money. When will people learn? LOL
Consumer Reports Electronics Blog: Lab tests: Why Consumer Reports can't recommend the iPhone 4
One is saying that Consumer Reports just wants free publicity.
I use Consumer Reports all the time for big decisions and find that they are pretty much unbiased.
Never used Consumer reports for anything.
They cant recomend the iPhone but yet they list the iPhone 4 as the best Smartphone on the market.
And now they are changing there stance on the iPhone's signal issue
Consumer Reports Electronics Blog: iPhone 4's supposed signal woes aren?t unique, and may not be serious
This issue isnt unique to the iPhone 4 , Nexus 1 has an issue when you cover the lower left (i think) portion of the phone.
My 3G doesnt have this issue, ofcourse the plastic back helps i think
iPhone 4 - Antenna issue
Droid X - Open system? thats Locked down tight
ATT Save $15 USD a Month
Verizon Spend $20 USD more a month
Not like we can trust Cunsumer reports is it?
Consumer Reports Electronics Blog: iPhone 4 signal debate rages; we experience signal loss in some calls
Consumer Reports got this right.
lol@ppl questioning Consumer Reports. Like I explained at Engadget, these folks are involved in testing car safety, baby car seats safety, stroller safety, crib safety....
They test everything under the sun for best value, safest, most durable, etc....
Cmon ppl. And ppl that are questioning CR dont understand the power they have. That CR rating could actually mean a dip in sales. Really.

The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
