Video shows how other handsets like the Sony Ericsson K800i are prone to antenna issues
Since the launch of the iPhone 4, we've seen a rash of news regarding its somewhat uncharacteristic loss of bars due to what many refer simply to as the result of the grip of death. Seeing that it's one of the most popular handsets around right now, this sore problem affecting some owners has been the focal point of many debates between people for and against the handset. However, this problem doesn't get as much attention on other handsets due primarily to the lack of popularity. The latest handset to show this kind of problem is the one-time camera king totting Sony Ericsson K800i which was released a few years ago. As you can see from the video, you can visibly see how the handset gives up to 16 dB by simply being held in a similar fashion to what's seen with the iPhone 4. Although the iPhone 4's woes may have highlighted this problem, it clearly shows how this issue also affects other phones – but doesn't get as much coverage due to the handset's lack of popularity on a global basis.
