Consumer Reports Says It Can’t Recommend the Verizon iPhone 4 Either Just like the first GSM iPhone 4
Consumer Reports has issued a statement on the Verizon iPhone saying that it cannot recommend the device due to compromised performance in low-signal conditions.
Just like they rated the GSM iPhone 4 (AT&T) this report is no different, at this time they don’t recommend it due to all sorts of issues with performance, signal and the same antenna issues.
As noted earlier, there have not been widespread reports of reception difficulties with the Verizon iPhone 4, and Verizon’s network, unlike AT&T’s, has received above-average scores from our readers for the reliability of its voice service in the past. (Those scores reflect data gathered before the launch of the Verizon iPhone 4.)
But given our findings, we believe the possibility exists for individual users to experience the problem since low signal conditions are unavoidable when using any cell-phone network.
For that reason, we are not including the Verizon iPhone 4 in our list of recommended smart phones, despite its high ranking in our Ratings. Although Apple no longer offers a free case to buyers of the iPhone 4, as it did for a time after the problem was first discovered on the AT&T version, the company has said in the past that it will consider requests for a free case from customers who buy the phone and subsequently experience reception problems.
