Consumer Reports Recommends the iPhone 4S, No More Antennagate

Regardless if you are an Apple fan or not you definitely remember “antennagate” the iPhone 4 went through. Because of the antenna design, holding the phone in a certain way under specific circumstances made the phone lose signal or drop a couple of bars in regions with excellent coverage.

Because of this issue Consumer Reports never recommended the iPhone 4 despite it being a great phone. It appears that the iPhone 4S has managed to solve all those problems and make it to the “recommended models” list. “In special reception tests of the iPhone 4S that duplicated those we did on the iPhone 4, the newer phone did not display the same reception flaw, which involves a loss of signal strength when you touch a spot on the phone’s lower left side while you’re in an area with a weak signal”, says Consumer Reports.

Despite scoring higher than the iPhone 4 and doing generally well, the iPhone 4S is placed by Consumer Reports a couple of spots below some of the high-end Android smartphones, like the Samsung Galaxy S II and the Motorola Droid Bionic, “and several other phones that boast larger displays”.
