iPhone 4 gets snubbed by Consumer Reports

The latest Consumer Reports will not be recommending the latest offering from Apple: the iPhone 4.

Here’s what was posted on the Consumer Reports website:

When your finger or hand touches a spot on the phone’s lower left side—an easy thing, especially for lefties—the signal can significantly degrade enough to cause you to lose your connection altogether if you’re in an area with a weak signal. Due to this problem, we can’t recommend the iPhone 4.

The website also posted a video:

Although the iPhone 4 is not available in Canada, many Canadians have this latest model.  We’re curious about your experience.  If you have the iPhone 4 what are your thoughts?  And if you don’t have the latest model, will this news disuade you?
