Consumer Reports: iPhone 4 Has Design Defect, Not Recommended

Well it looks like Apple's bullshit excuse for call problems has been found out... Consumer Reports, the US equivalent of the Consumer Association, put the iPhone 4 through some thorough scientific testing. The result? Every iPhone has a problem when held in the lower left corner.

Its not just bars on the display either (as Apple are claiming) as they measured significant loss of signal when held in this manner - enough to lose calls even in areas of average service coverage.

Will Apple address the issue properly? I don't think so. Apple fans will take the advice of Steve Jobs ('don't hold it that way') or buy a case and live with the issue. Others may look to refund their phones and move on elsewhere, however their numbers will be statistically insignificant and Apple will ride out the storm until its all forgotten at their next big product launch...
