Consumer Reports Gave iPhone 4 a Thumbs Down Solely Because of the Antenna Problem

Consumer Reports clarified their position on the iPhone 4.
Lab tests: Why Consumer Reports can’t recommend the iPhone 4
They note that some blogs have reported that Consumer Reports both panned and praised the iPhone 4. However, their addendum to their lab tests states: Some commentary suggests we’ve retracted an earlier recommendation of the iPhone 4. In fact, our first blog on the iPhone 4’s performance, and a followup comparing it to the Motorola Droid X, were based on preliminary testing, as we stated. Those earlier tests did not address antenna performance. We recommend products only after all tests are complete, and as part of our full smart phone Ratings. —Paul Reynolds
So, there you go. iPhone 4 got a solid thumbs down from Consumer Reports due to the infamous signal problem when holding the phone in the left hand.
