    Not trolling or hating, I just found this comical and thought others might too...

    Wow, I would've never noticed that. Intentional?

    Now I am. :confused:

    I'm off to seriously ponder this scenario. (It is notable; Apple usually does things 'cum intentio'.)

    Isn't obvious, Apple is still holding a grudge over the whole antenna gate issue from last summer and is completely favoring Verizon over AT&T, that image on the front page of Apple.com is a total F U to AT&T.

    And if you look real close (image below), you'll see that Apple has the Verizon iPhone raised just a few millimeters higher than the AT&T iPhone, meaning that it believes it to be far superior in every way possible.

    You have to not cut your nails to properly use the Verizon iPhone and avoid any dropped calls, :apple: style.

    Why would Apple hold a grudge against AT&T over "antenna gate"? Apple designed the antenna not AT&T

    Don't you ever look at ads and wonder? I don't think you can really overthink when it come to advertisements, because all of this stuff I'm sure their marketing team has already thought of. You'd be surprised. Look at all those cigarette ads you see that show something like a peaceful nature scene. You might think it's overthinking it, to assume that it's subliminally implying that the cigarettes will take you to some psycholigical state where you feel "good", but it's absolutely the case.

    I'm sure it's intentional. You look at the page, you just think it looks higher, but you can't even tell for sure. It's not obvious enough. Just enough to make it "jump out" in your mind. And the grip? They got enough flak for it already. They don't want to imply that it wont happen, yet at the same time they want to imply that it wouldn't happen on the new model.

    Ha! I noticed that yesterday. Funny how the hand 'just' misses the Antennagate area on the AT&T phone, but on the Verizon iPhone the hand is hugging it like a mother-effer.

    Is this guy serious?

    The lengths fanboys go to when trying to defend their precious company/product.

    Because Apple loves to play victim. (poor sad apple)

    Apple is the expert at pointing fingers when trouble arises.

    Regardless of how you hold either phone you'll have dropped calls due to the antenna design defect. It's been reported on Verizon as it was on AT&T.

    Other countries must have got the special batches of iPhones. Despite the antenna design, you only really hear about significant issues in the states. Month 7 for me without a single dropped call.

    Sent from my death gripped iPhone in a basement.

    What "defect" are you talking about?

    Ohhhhh, you mean the "defect" the media blew out of proportion!

    :rolleyes:

    In all 4 years of owning the iPhones, I've only had about 5 calls dropped... two with the first iPhone, one with the 3G, one with the 3GS, and one with the i4
