We test all of our phones extensively and are confident that under normal circumstances reception strength and performance will be more than sufficient for the operation of the phone when network coverage is also adequate."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/wpt/auto/1291437210.usr14226.jpg" style="border: 0px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>It's been about a week since videos began circulating regarding a potential issue with the HD7's antenna. HTC's response, via Computer Weekly, appears to be - hey, it works, even if the bars aren't full. For the record, I've yet to run into any dropped calls or network issues no matter how I hold the phone, so it looks like HTC's largely right. Has anybody found reception getting worse if they hold the phone the "wrong" way?</p>
