Windows Phone 7 HTC HD7 Suffers iPhone 4 Death Grip

Back at the beginning of October came the launch of Windows Phone 7 running devices such as HTC, Samsung, LG and Dell on carriers such as Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile. One such smartphone to come out of the launch was the HTC HD7 and although it incorporates some fantastic features, Mobilewhack.com reported that it may be experiencing the same reception issue problems that the iPhone 4 suffered with. This can be seen via the video below.

With so many smartphones currently on the market, manufacturers are up against some pretty stiff competition so whilst wading into a sea of similar devices, a technical fault like this can be a major set back. Take Apple’s iPhone 4 and the exact same problem.

Some users of the handset were finding that on gripping the phone in their left hand was causing a loss in reception, and in some cases, calls disappearing altogether. Apple were keen to rectify this problem and sent out it’s iPhone 4 customers a free case.

    I own an HD7, and I have never had any problem with losing reception. I have tried to replicate this "death grip" and it just doen't happened. I only succeeded in hurting my hand from trying this. It's been rock solid from day one!

    Utter garbage! I got an HD7 the day it was released and have never experienced this issue. All you're trying to do is muddy the WP7 platform. Well done for achieving nothing!
