Apple targets Droid X

24 July 2010 4 Comments

Apple has targeted Droid X this time following N97 Mini and Of course for the same antenna problem. Apple has added Droid X picture in the antenna web page, which shows the signal fluctuations. Apple has also released a video on this as well. We think that Apple must stop doing all these and start focusing on a solution for future iPhone 4 antenna issues. What do you all say?

    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.

    The only additional information on that page is as follows:

    1. Tests performed on commercially available mobile phones on carrier networks with cellular signal strength between -80 dBm and -90 dBm. Testing results will vary based on site conditions

    But that doesn't address the problem of the 'test' not being verified or repeatable. In fact, with so much of the country having 3G coverage – for a lot of the news outlets, it would be a challenge to find a location without 3G.
    If I were Verizon I'd just throw up a map showing where there's 'not' 3g coverage and -80dB to -90dB signal strength – as those are the only locations valid for apple's test.

    Yea you are true.

    Apple must stop this and start working on their signal issues
