In the last few months, what we have seen is the media only dishing out some heavy criticism for the new Apple Unlocked iPhone 4 for its reception problems and how the company has handled the whole fiasco. However unlike the media in America, the European media has not really singled this phone out and in fact they have said that the performance of this phone is more or less on par with other smartphones currently available in the market. A recent report a major Norwegian newspaper recently reported that the mobile phone did not in fact have any kind of flaw in its engineering and therefore was performing okay. They have also said that the phone has been well received by the major carriers Telenor.
The above mentioned newsletter has based their conclusions on some testing which they have done with some of the most popular smartphones in the market. In an analysis done where they have compared the iPhone 4, Nokia Unlocked E71, HTC Wildfire and the older iPhone 3GS, they say that they have found the same issues with the reception dropping due to the manner in which the phone is held. Amazingly they have also gone to the extent of reporting that the iPhone 4 does not actually drop calls if the signal is lost in the phone. Along with that, they also analyzed the data and the voice quality on the iPhone 4 and the 3GS and what they found was that both were superior as compared to the HTC and the Nokia counterparts. Although the voice was cut when the signal went down, the calls were not dropped, said the reports.
To be honest, in the tests that we have done, the iPhone 4 Unlocked handset has not really failed us that much and its performance is not startlingly low as compared to other major phones provided by carriers.
