iPhones Are The Worst For Making Phone Calls, Study Finds

Call me old-fashioned, but when it comes to conversation, I like a good phone call once in a while.

If you agree, then you might want to steer clear of iPhones.

*Gasp*

Don't get me wrong, I'll defend iPhones until the end of time. I went Apple, and I won't go back. It's just who I've become and who I'll always be.

Even so, new studies have proven iPhones are the worst phones to have when it comes to actually making calls.

In an experiment performed by Telecom Authorities in Scandinavia, 26 different smartphones were tested for their signal quality, and the iPhone 6, 6S and 5SE got the worst ratings.

To make matters weirder, the iPhones are said to work better if held in your right hand (sorry, lefties).

Our beloved smartphones were examined on their ability to perform simple voice conversations, or, if you're into cell phone lingo, the ability to transmit in the GSM 900 signal band. To our surprise, the iPhone 6S and iPhone 5SE are in the bottom five.

How could you, Apple?!

Professor Gert Frølund Pedersen of Denmark's Aalborg University is shocked by Apple's downfall with newer phones. He stated,

Apple has had problems and they continue to have them.

Ouch.

If you find this oddly unsettling, you can always opt for a cheaper phone, like the Samsung J1, or the Samsung S5. They aren't iPhones, but they did rank for best signal quality in the smartphone test.

But if you're a tried and true iPhone activist, hang tight for the iPhone 7 and let us know how the phone calls work out for you.
