Consumer Reports does not recommend the iPhone 4

So much for the thin excuse that it’s a software issue …

It’s official. Consumer Reports engineers have just completed testing the iPhone 4, and have confirmed that there is a problem with its reception. When your finger or hand touches a spot on the phones lower left side—an easy thing, especially for lefties—the signal can significantly degrade enough to cause you to lose your connection altogether if youre in an area with a weak signal. Due to this problem, we cant recommend the iPhone 4.

I have to say that while this is probably a non-issue for most of my day-to-day phone usage … it really makes me question whether I want a 4th-generation iPhone as well.
