    double antenna?

    Now the Droid x is supposed to have double antenna technology so I've heard but it seems like I get the same reception as all my other phones? Anyone know anything about the antenna technology in the phone?

    i think this dates back the the iphone 4 when it had antenna troubles about how it was held. dont think its gonna improve service, just maybe not lose service as opposed to one antenna phones..?

    I think Abe is spot on here. The 2 antennas don't necessarily provide increased signal strength so much as reduce the ability to attenuate your signal artificially. Holding the phone from the bottom will leave the top antenna fully able while holding it from the top leaves the bottom alone. Technically, you could actually have the same signal attenuation as the iPhone 4, but you would have to hold it like a crack monkey with paralytic arthritis.

    Well that's true but on some roms I had an increase in signal so it was strange plus apple said the evo and the x had the same problem so my friend who has the evo did the grab the top method and his signal went down so I grab the whole top and bottom of the x and no signal drop! The x is a beast that's all but was just wondering and thanks for the insight

    Dual diversity antennas that are found in the X are put there to help bring an equilibrium to fluctuating signal strengths. You know on some phones, you can stand in one spot and just watch the signal bars go up and down without you moving an inch? That's what the X's antennas help with. They keep a more consistent signal in a "geographical location". They don't actually provide _much_ of a boost in actual signal strength, but they do help with the radio interference caused by the "deathgrip".

    I have tested the X, and from my tests I can't get it to drop but, maybe, 5dBm. That's with very expensive company equipment... I'd say the X has one of the better antenna designs I've seen.

    My incredible refuses lose any signal no matter how I hold it. It actually gains signal when I hold it.

    There is not much to look at in this signature.

    I can see that that makes since but like I had said I had better signal with different roms then others maybe they put up a new tower by my house but I live in a dead zone but I have great coverage everywhere else
