    Are you right handed or left handed? One rumour I've seen on the 'net suggests that the signal loss only happens when the 'phone is held in the left hand, with a digit covering the volume button.

    Nah, don't understand. Its a minor revision of an existing product, what's so exciting about it?

    Not a major problem in London on my new one (although I've got rubbish signal at work anyway)

    Well for me the HD video recording is a big plus as I have my first child on the way so it'll be really nice to capture all those moments of him/her growing up. I upgraded from a 3G too so it's feels so much faster than that. Also the 3G can't do multitasking either so really it feels like a major upgrade rather than a 'minor revision'.

    got a bumper case for my iPhone 4, no signal loss. although i have tryed to duplicate this issue without the bumper case, without success.

    it's a design flaw expected from external metal antennas.

    And here I thought the iPad case was a rip-off being sold separately! At least that product actually works as intended without extras. This is taking accessorization to a whole new level! :hehe:

    1) So your body is grounding the antenna and will be absorbing a great deal more microwave radiation (the phone will surely boost transmit power to deal with the low signal strength) ... That's not going to help Mr Jobs cancer problems is it...

    2) So the larger OLED display, used in competing Smartphones (read Samsung Galaxy S, et al), are rubbish right Mr Jobs?? Last thing I hard they were the next gen. replacement for older liquid crystal technology (IPS/PVA,panels etc.)
    Hmmm wonder if you can use the iPhone 4 in sunlight (an epic fail on the iPhone 3GS/iPod touch 3G). My iPod touch 3G is highly adverse to sunlight when playing video... The Jobs iPhone 4 demonstration was carried out in a very dimly lit auditorium...

    What should a bit-tech iPhone 4 review look like?

    How about don't even bother review at all.

    You'd have hoped that Apple's quality control/testing department would have. :duh:

    After seeing exactly how it was done I've manage to do it a couple of times now, still not an exact science for me. I'm really having to try to do it too, though I'm not what you would call clammy handed.

    I'll consider it a secret feature allowing me to have calls drop during uncomfortable conversations, I'll just need to carry a paper clip or something round with me :p.

    lol, makes me wonder why Apple didn't call it a feature and slap another £50 onto the price tag.
