iPhone 4 Drops Calls When Left Hand Corner is Touched? [Video]

iPhone 4 Drops Calls When Left Hand Corner is Touched? [Video]

Posted June 24, 2010 at 11:33am by iClarified · 9683 views
A new video report by Insanely Great Mac shows that the left corner of the iPhone 4 consistently drops calls when touched.

This is weird. Touching the lower left corner of the iPhone 4 consistently drops calls. I've been testing this all night and here's a replication on video. The test was performed four times, but it could have been 40. Whether the palm of the and, should, neck, or any body part results in quickly dropping the call. This does not appear to affect the iPhone 3GS, which was tested with the iPhone 4.

Take a look at the video below. According to the YouTube comments, not everyone is experiencing this issue.

When I watch this video I notice right away that the signal of the iPhones are very low but the 4Gen. iPhone has almost don't have signal bar. Well, the design of the antenna is not probably good or it was not connected properly during the production.

Could be that the metal border (antenna) also enables some electro-capacitive reaction with the human skin. I would make an experiment and try the 4 with the Bumper and see if it happens then.

Semms like the iPhone 4 is made for right-hands only....

Apple is well aware of this and they sell a $30 fix it's called "Bumpers". Enjoy your iPhone 4
