HTC Titan having antenna issues?

htctitanunibody

WPSauce reports that arguably the best Windows Phone out at the moment, the HTC Titan, has a fatal flaw, due to its metal unibody design.

They report dramatically poor call quality which they blame on the antenna, and HTC support appear to agree that there is a problem.

Dear Sushovan De,

Thank you for taking the time to contact HTC, Sushovan. We are sorry to hear that you are experiencing issues with the sound quality on your Titan. We will gladly assist you with this issue.

As always, we are here to answer any technical questions or concerns you may have between 6am to 1am EDST, 7 days a week for your convenience, or by phone at <number>

WPSauce notes it is rather suspicious that the new HTC Titan II has replaced the metal back with a new all-plastic design.

Given that the HTC Titan has extremely high satisfaction rates, is this evidence that we do not really use our phones for phone calls anymore, or is it possible that only some people are suffering this issue, possibly due to the phone not being seated properly in the unibody, which also contains the antenna?

If any our readers have this issue with their HTC Titan let us know your experience below.
