The yes and no camps for a satisfactory antennagate outcome were completed by 10 percent of readers who thought ‘Even if there is a problem, a free case will sort it out’ and the remaining 11 per cent who were of the opinion ‘I want to use my iPhone 4 in its natural state’.

It is well known that the tech world is filled with the Apple lovers and the Apple haters and this poll shows that although the Apple lovers still form the majority, the reception problems that tarnished the launch of the iPhone 4 has seriously dented the company’s overall image as well as the handset's seeming invincibility.

Results from the T3 poll showing damage to Apple’s reputation and the iPhone’s image have been replicated by Opinium Reseach, which, in a survey of its own found that one in four potential iPhone 4 customers are now less likely to purchase the handset in hindsight of the media frenzy that surrounded antennagate.
