I am right handed and I always have the phone in my left hand to make calls. The G3 antenna is built in, in left lower corner, this is why this
absolutely makes sense....as you can see on the videos
It makes sense you'd use the left hand to hold the phone when you make calls, I'm right handed and I do the same thing, probably because I dial with
my right hand.
But The first video makes it sound like touching the antenna on both sides of the phone was causing the problem. If that's the case it wouldn't
matter if you held it left handed or right handed? Unless there's more antenna internally that only the left hand blocks.
I have an old phone and it has a stubby little antenna projecting from it about an inch long, and it works great and your hand will never block it.
I can say I have been in company boardrooms when decisions like this are made. I always have the engineering point of view and want things to work
even of they don't look as cool. The marketing guys want it to look cool and they don't care how well it works, they just want the looks to sell
Sometimes the engineers win the battle, but too often the marketing guys win and get product designs in their favor that look cooler but don't work
as well. I'd say this looks like a pretty good example of such a compromise when compared to my phone with the stubby little antenna that doesn't
look as cool but works a lot better.
So I shop for how well a product works. People that shop for how a product looks are getting what they deserve in this case.
Maybe some of them will wise up and start caring how a product works in addition to how it looks. Then again, maybe not.
