Droid X got hunted by Apple antennagate attack

on July 24, 2010 – 6:19 am10 Comments

After the death grip issue of the Apple iPhone 4 was confirmed by Apple at a press conference few days,  Apple continues to argue that the same problem occurs in other phones in the market. We saw Apple finding fault with Nokia, RIM, Samsung, and HTC only to get strong replies from these companies . The latest victim is the Motorola Droid X  ! Apple claims that holding the Droid X in weak signal areas may negatively affect signal strength. Verizon and Motorola seem to have had a solid start with the Droid X sales and seems like Apple wants to spoil the party.We are hoping to hear from Motorola about the same.

If you are a Droid X user tell us if are you facing any reception issue with the phone.

There is a poll after the video, don’t forget to check it. Here’s the video in which you will see how Apple  demos the Droid X Antenna problem

    no issues for Droid X. Apple is faking it. Notice how in the video Droid X is not connected to 3g.

    I see 11 people read the Poll wrong… it was asking if Droid X had reception issue not iPhone 4!. Anyway I tried this with the Droid X,wrapped both hands around it…. nothing. Sorry Apple, you fail.

  • Android

    It’s a fake image, it’s not the right screenshot for Droid X. Nice try Apple, you’ve hit a new low.

    I am currently using iphone and I feel ashamed of Apple act. Switching to Android…… Apple, clean up your act before more people abandon ship.

    I’m very curious as to the reproducibility of this, and somewhat skeptical on the validity of the video. After all, haven’t we learned from all this that bars are somewhat bogus measurements? If apple wants people on their side, they should be showing a comparison of dB drops between devices.

    Additionally, the reason i’m questioning the video – there’s no 3G icon next to the bars. Since we know absolutely nothing of the testing environment, it makes me wonder whether they had to find some remote location without 3G coverage to produce these results. Most verizon users will attest to having 3G coverage in any reasonably populated area for the most part.

      Exactly! The fact that the 3G symbol isn’t even showing up, and also the fact that the call did not drop is a suspect… I always have 3G on my phone unless the area really has crap signal.
