T211 signal strength - design flaw?
I've been rocking a T211 since last week. With most Samsung bloat deleted, it runs sufficiently smooth and I love it for the most part. I am using it as a phone and for my preferences, while other devices offer better specs, I do not think there is a single device on the market with a better overall size and form factor.
One problem: I discovered last night that if I hold the tablet in landscape orientation (or if my hands/fingers otherwise cover the back of the upper left corner of the device - bottom left in landscape), my signal strength decreases by up to 4 bars; if I don't have a strong signal, I lose my signal. It is sort of like that iPhone 4 issue from way back, but it doesn't seem to be fixed that easily. Not necessarily a huge deal, as reverse landscape generally works okay.
Do others experience the same?
(ETA - I should add that with a strong signal, it turns out I only lose maybe one bar tops. But the antenna should ideally have been placed elsewhere)
