Apple likely could have just stopped talking about “antennagate” and allowed the controversy to die, given they’d managed to convince loyal Apple devotees that the problem was never really a problem in the first place. Apple continues however to insists that the iPhone 4’s attenuation design flaw is something that happens to all smartphones, and this week posted a video claiming that the Motorola Droid X suffers from the same problem. The only problem? According to PC Magazine tests, it’s not true:
Of course you’d be hard pressed to find many phones (including previous iPhones) that lose such a significant amount of signal strength with a single finger touch. Still, Apple appears devoted to continuing this claim that their design flaw isn’t really one, and that this is something that plagues all smartphones. That’s uncharacteristic for a company that usually just remains silent.
