It wasn't a death grip it was just touch the back of the phone while holding it.
I'm not suggesting it didn't exist, as I stated in my post " much of it" (not all of it) was magnified because of iPhone 4 situation. Apple tends to be an arrogant polarizing company. Therefore much of what involves them is subject to speculation.
In addition I believe it was the press that coined the term "death grip" words that evoke a very strong negative reaction. That said, I've used a lot of different phones over the years and noticed attenuation long before it's recent appearance on the news. After all a cell phone is just a radio, subject to the same pros & cons that have existed for decades.
