HTC Sensation signal loss issue refuted by manufacturer

HTC Sensation said to feature same signal loss issues as Apple's iPhone 4

HTC has hit out at claims that its recently released dual-core Android powerhouse the HTC Sensation is suffering from iPhone 4-esque grip of death antenna issues.

With user reports emerging that holding the aluminium uni-body construct of the HTC Sensation in a certain, standard manner sees the handset’s mobile, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi signals weaken, the Taiwanese company’s new flagship device could be tarnished by issues that famously hit the launch of Apple’s latest pocket blower.

Refuting such claims, claims that have been backed by video evidence, a HTC spokesperson has announced boldly that “No,” the handset is not suffering similar signal loss issues to the iPhone 4.

They stated: "No. Every phone experiences a slight variation in signal strength when the antenna is covered in its entirety by a palm or fingers, however under normal circumstances this does not affect the performance of the phone.”

Whilst HTC has yet to hit back with a comment as infamous as Steve Jobs’ “just avoid holding it that way,” the company’s official line is none committal and fails to amend the problem being faced by a number of the handset’s early adopters.

Are tech companies now too focused on the style over substance of devices or are signal issues such as this an unavoidable issue? Share your thoughts via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
