    I've already done my research on the Droid X, the problem doesn't exist - at least not to the extent that it does on the Apple iPhone and exposed impedance areas. Holding the iPhone 4 'naturally', I could generate the problem very easily and repeatedly. I could not duplicate it on the Droid, Droid X, Incredible, or EVO. But then again, its hard to test because I couldn't run the Droid X on an inferior network like AT&T to get raw data off a network that barely has connectivity to begin with.

    I think the best 'proof' of the problem was demonstrated by Brian Klug with real raw numbers, not bars. Maybe Motorola should "fix" the problem by changing the way it displays bars.

    PCMag-Apples Droid X Death Grip Claim Bogus

    ...we also just couldn't get the Droid X's signal to drop using one hand. As you can see in our video, we had to completely cover the body of the Droid X in an awkward, two-handed grip to get the phone's signal to drop. That's very different from the one-handed grip we found on the iPhone 4. Apple's overreaction is a pity here. The "death grip" controversy seems to be dying down a bit. . . ut by overstating their case, Apple keeps an unflattering meme alive.

    I've never been able to recreate it. When I did it speeds actually went up.

    (I honestly think it was a smaller percentage of the phones that were affected by the issue and it just kind of got blown way out of proportion, but I could be wrong.)
