Remember the HTC HD7 antenna issues on T-Mobile? Several clips on the web confirmed them, but some of the users mentioned that T-Mobile had poor reception in their area anyway, so it’s not something to bet on. Also, HTC’s spokesman claimed that the Taiwanese maker delivers top notch industrial design, although some areas of the phone have been designed to host the antennas and if covered, can cripple the signal.

HTC’s official says that it’s inevitable at times that one gets his hands on the sensitive areas and decreases the signal level, especially when covering the smartphone with palms and fingers. Normal circumstances spawn strong reception and we learn from Computer Weekly, who tested the phone in the O2 network that it works OK, even with the HTC HD7’s bottom covered.
