No way to know yet because the back is different on the EVO 3D versus the Sensation. The Sensation has a partial metal backing, from my understanding, the EVO 3D is all plastic with a coating of some type.

put your hand on the top back of your evo in a medium coverage area and watch it drop a bar.

put your hand on the lower half of your phone with low wifi signal and watch it cut it.


I've been around cell phones along time, they all do it.

the biggest issue is more in poor placement, as in putting it where most everyone holds there phone.

I never said touch pro 2, either way I'm certain you can do it on a touch pro 2 as well as long as you cover where the antenna is, you can do it to any antenna in the world guys, come on...seriously, who in there right minds thinks you can cover a receiver and NOT affect its reception? some may be more measurable than others, but like i said it all has to do with convenience of placement.

oh and BTW I've done it on a touch pro 2 as well. but I for the life of me can't remember what part of the phone the antenna is at.

The antenna is on the top quarter of the touch pro 2, from the speakerphone button and up. It says so in the manual.
