Droid X Death Grip Signal Loss

Verizon's Droid X Is Apple's Latest Death Grip Target

Apparently taking jabs at Nokia, RIM, and HTC at a recent Apple press conference wasn't enough for Steve Jobs; now he's added Verizon's Motorola Droid into the mix. The Droid X is now one of the featured phones on Apple's site displaying how the "death grip" affects all phones, not just the iPhone 4.

After an extremely successful first day of sales — the Droid X sold out online — the device has been receiving many favorable reviews, save one screen issue for which Motorola has already offered a fix. It's even received it's first over-the-air update bringing users new features and improved usability. So, what gives, Apple? After offering bumper refunds and free cases, I figured Apple would quietly improve the iPhone 4's reception for its next release. Apparently not so . . . and Apple is not going to be quiet about it. Is any phone safe?

See what the Droid X "death grip" looks like after the break.

I'm not a fan of Apple products and have avoided them in favor of Sony for years. The fact that Apple is projecting the criticism they've received for a product which may have a few hang-ups (I know, we all thought Apple made flawless magical products) onto other manufacturers is downright childish. This just gives me a more solid reason to not buy their products.

Who holds their phone like that? I don't.

I, personally, have not been able to reproduce that on my Droid X (or my original Droid for that matter). I have tried everything I can to make my phone lose signal like that (and believe me, my house is almost a dead zone) but it just won't do it. I have held it the way they show it above and I have completely covered it with my hands, etc. This is why I think it's an exaggeration on their part. I don't know how they are doing that but I don't think it's showing reality at all.
