Default 2X Antenna Signal Issue

Hi foks!

I've read in a Tech review that de 2x is withnissing signal droppes when held with your hand.
Can anyone conform this,

I know it will drop on every phone these days and I don't mind if the signal drops.
As long as not everything drops.... (so you still have atleast one signal bar).
I have big hands and am worried about this problem.

Wireless penetration testing on handhelds (not gonna do it, but you can try it if you want :
-Nokia n810 - probably capable via p54-spi driver

-HTC Kaiser - via newer kernels and wl12xx


HTC Kaiser (KAIS130)

I don't have antenna problems (as far as i've noticed) but.... I do have one strange problem, I am able to call, and be called., but sometimes I can't hear anything and I'm also not able to talk to the other person. The other person can't hear me as well, it's like a total calling black-out. After rebooting a few times, it works again.. Does anyone has this as well ? (I haven't found out what's causing this)
