Oh, it would probably be called a design flaw if your meaty hand full of water comes in contact or is wrapped around the antenna.
pretty much. my wife has the iPhone 4 and she doesn't even know there is a big hubbub going on over the reception of her phone. she hasn't experienced it yet and the bumper she ordered arrived yesterday so i suspect she'll never know that her phone is defective. ;~)
The “Death Grip” that drops bars when you wrap your fingers around the lower antenna is real, but it may not have much effect on performance. It’s not the number of bars that count, says tech expert Ted Landau, but the decibels per milliwatt (dBm). “FWIW, the number of bars on my iPhone vary a lot — depending on how I hold phone — but actually dbms stay within about 10 unit range,” he said on Twitter. (To see dBm on older iPhones — it doesn’t work in iOS 4 — type *3001#12345#* in the Phone app’s Keypad screen and tap Call button. The dBm appears where bars were. Tap to toggle.)
