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.
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.
