iPhone 4.0 Reception Issues – UPDATED

According to a lot of blog and video posts online, there seems to be an issue with the iPhone 4.0 antenna body. Below you can watch a couple of video demos explaining the antenna problem.

Update: 25/6/10
Apple has released official advice for iPhone 4 owners to overcome the problem of the device losing signal when held by the lower left corner. Steve Jobs responded to a query about the problem from one owner by saying: “Just avoid holding it in that way.

The official advice is to “avoid gripping it in the lower left corner in a way that covers both sides of the black strip in the metal band“. Alternatively, said Apple, customers could buy a case to shield the antenna.

What do you all think of this issue? We personally think that Apple screwed up on this one and are trying to come up with an easy way to get out of it instead of admitting the mistake.
