It looks like the iPhone 4 isn’t the only phone to suffer from particularly troubling death grip problems. I mean, we all knew it wasn’t the only one, but it had it bad. And now it appears HTC’s HD7 is the same way. Of course, you’ll note that the handsets in these videos aren’t showing strong signal to begin with, and as studies have shown, the death grip causes a static loss in signal that is more damaging at low initial signal levels.
In other words, it’ll barely affect a good signal, might make a medium signal bad, and might make a bad signal drop. It’s difficult to tell unless you know the actual numerical values of the signal and loss. Can any HD7 owners out there corroborate these reports?
