Smartphone Antenna Performance: iPhone 3Gs vs iPhone 4 vs Samsung Omnia II vs Nokia N97 Mini [video]

Last Friday, Apple held a press conference detailing their problem and solution to the iPhone 4’s much-hyped antenna situation. They also tested the same ‘grip of death’ on other smartphones available on the market, and they got the same results as with the iPhone 4. Today Apple posts their tests on YouTube, and if you didn’t watch the conference, you can watch the vids below.
