"Nope" says HTC to Sensation 4G's Antennagate issue
Just this past Monday, I reported on a story about how the HTC Sensation 4G had a similar issue to the iPhone 4. That was according to an unknown hardware tester, but the tests seemed pretty accurate.
But now, HTC is refuting that claim. Basically, they're "pulling an Apple" and saying that every single phone in the world has slight issues with the antennae when a palm is pressed against the device. Sound familiar? Anyway, us geeks know this to be true. It's just that the earlier report allegedly pushed it out of proportion, and HTC wants us to know that all will be okay when the device launches a little later this month.
Here's the official word from HTC:
Every phone experiences a slight variation in signal strength when the antenna is covered in its entirety by a palm and/or fingers. However, under normal circumstances this does not affect the performance of the phone.
So there you have it. Everything's fine.[GottaBeMobile]
