So I went to the Apple Genius Bar today with my iPhone 4 issues. It was a fairly unsatisfactory experience, especially compared to when I took my iPhone 3G back when dust* started appearing on the screen and they replaced it without question.
Before my Genius Bar appointment I compared the performance of my iPhone 4 with the others in the shop. There was only one iPhone on O2, so that was the only one I could really test.
From what I could tell my phone is not atypical, the one in store that I tested behaved exactly the same, huge drop off of signal and download performance when held lightly in my left hand. I took my 3G with me as well, it suffered no such problem held the same way.
