Southpaws Suffer iPhone Service Problems
Apple products are often hailed with words like 'genius,' 'revolutionary,' or 'game-changing,' but the company's desire to push the envelope has had an unexpected impact on iPhone 4 owners who are left-handed. Unlike previous iPhones, the iPhone 4's antennae are engineered directly into the steel frame of the phone itself. While right-handed users have no problems, left-handed users who cup the phone with their left hand lose 3-4 bars of signal strength. In many cases, this may be enough to terminate a call altogether.
