Consumer Reports Refuses to Recommend iPhone 4

Ummm, Steve, I think you are holding it wrong.

This is almost too good to be true for iPhone haters, but in a report over at MSNBC.com, Consumer Reports is saying that it cannot recommend the iPhone 4 because of the antenna issues that it is having.  A quote from the article;

“When your finger or hand touches a spot on the phone’s lower left side —an easy thing, especially for lefties — the signal can significantly degrade enough to cause you to lose your connection altogether if you’re in an area with a weak signal,” Consumer Reports said. “Due to this problem, we can’t recommend the iPhone 4.”

Consumer Reports has long been held in regard for the extensive testing that the organization does on electronic products.  At 7.3 MILLION subscribers, this is a public relations nightmare, and gives real creedence to the fact that the iPhone 4 has some issues to work through. Consumer Reports did say that when a free case or fix is released that remedies the problem, they will re-evaluate the iPhone 4. In the meantime, if you were wanting an iPhone, you could just get an Android handset, Andy doesn’t care how you hold him!
