Consumer Reports: Thumbs Down on Verizon iPhone4

Posted By on Sun, Feb 27, 2011 at 1:47 AM

In the wake of a momentous launch of Verizon's iPhone4, Consumer Reports is raining on Apple's parade. CR announced on its blog that it can't recommend the Verizon iPhone4 because it basically has the same problems found on AT&T's iPhone4: signal issues.

"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 iPhone4," wrote Consumer Reports. CR tested three iPhone4s, each of which was purchased at three separate retailers.

Here's the best part: Consumer Reports recommends covering the antenna gap with a piece of duct tape.
