Like I said, I haven't heard, in the media, about this issue with other top tier phones.

Support pages and all are good but in the whole time the Nexus One has been out, I have not seen a major article or anything about this issue.

The iPhone 4 has officially been on the market for half a week by comparison.

iPhone 4 Sales Top 1.7 Million

CUPERTINO, California—June 28, 2010—Apple® today announced that it has sold over 1.7 million of its iPhone® 4 through Saturday, June 26, just three days after its launch on June 24. The new iPhone 4 features FaceTime®, which makes video calling as easy as one tap, and Apple’s new Retina display, the highest resolution display ever built into a phone, resulting in stunning text, images and video.

“This is the most successful product launch in Apple’s history,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “Even so, we apologize to those customers who were turned away because we did not have enough supply.”

iPhone 4 also features a 5 megapixel camera with LED flash, HD 720p video recording, Apple’s A4 processor, a 3-axis gyro and up to 40 percent longer talk time—in a beautiful all-new design of glass and stainless steel that is the thinnest smartphone in the world.

iPhone 4 comes with iOS 4, the newest version of the world’s most advanced mobile operating system, which features Multitasking, Folders, enhanced Mail, deeper Enterprise support and Apple’s new iAd mobile advertising platform.

This is interesting about signal issues. Seems iPhone 3G/3GS is affected as well. Makes me wonder it's not hardware but iOS4 causing the problem.

One MacRumors reader emailed Steve Jobs in a followup about the widely publicized iPhone 4 signal issues that have been reported across the web. In particular, rfbandit was asking about Apple's policy on giving free bumper cases to alleviate the issue. "I love everything about the phone except my signal issues", he wrote.

Steve Jobs reportedly replied immediately with:
There are no reception issues. Stay Tuned.

I just got my iphone 4 yesterday and I love it alot. I had the original iphone and 3g model. The latest model is great in alot of ways. First the screen is beauitful, secondly the phone is super first compared to my 3g model. But I have experienced the issue with holding left corner of the phone causing calls to drop. And I was really looking forward to this model when I heard that apple was trying to improve drop call issues but I am still dropping calls the same as before. I will contact AT&T tomorrow morning to report the issue. But besides that I am in love again with my iphone.

Anand did a good write-up regarding the signal issue.

My wifes friend got one last week and dropped it while we were geocaching last night. Shattered.... maybe glass on both sides was dumb?

It didn't even hit concrete....

What you expect. Let's take her head and drop it. People never learned to take better care of there stuff. We had a guy here I saw at the local At&t store drop his in the parking lot. Never cracked.

I'm just saying.... it didn't hit that hard. I've dropped my ally probably 3 times since I've owned it... never cracked. I dropped my lg dare and it hit my leg while i was walking and sent it flying off. Worked just fine.

Housing the phone in glass was dumb.
