“In our tests in the greater Boston area, the Verizon phone cleared up the one nagging issue troubling users of the AT&T iPhone: connection strength and reliability,” Scot Finnie reports for Computerworld.
“Our testing showed that Verizon’s network delivered significantly stronger reception than AT&T,” Finnie reports. “In one example, we found that the Verizon iPhone was able to grab three bars in Computerworld’s gym, which is in the partially underground basement level of our office building. For the AT&T iPhone, this same room was a dead zone.”
Finnie reports, “Try as we might, Computerworld editors were unable to reveal anything like the “death grip” vulnerability on the Verizon iPhone that we are easily able to demonstrate on the AT&T iPhone… No matter what we did, the Verizon-based smartphone showed five bars and throughput was undiminished.”
Finnie reports, “The newest version of the iPhone 4 is slightly improved because of its antenna design, and you’re going to love the connection strength and reliability. If you’ve been hankering for an iPhone but have refused to go with AT&T — and don’t want to wait for the upcoming iPhone 5 — the Verizon iPhone 4 is the clear choice.”
