This isn't completely surprising since Apple has made no significant changes in the antenna design to warrant a permanent fix. As a result, the “Death grip” causes a drop in 3G data performance as well as the Wi-Fi performance. What's strange is that the Death Grip gives inconsistent results which is why analysts don't view this as a big problem for Apple, chalking up the news as "bloggers looking for something to write about". Analysts also argue that Apple sold millions of AT&T iPhone 4's last year and despite the media-furor, consumers did not line up at Apple Stores demanding refunds.
