Here's a video of it happening:
Now that Apple took the flak for it, they can be quietly dismissive instead of quietly brilliant. They pretty much just said the same thing Apple did and it's funny to see commenters wearing their hypocrisy on their sleeve by trying to make out it's somehow a different issue when it's HTC involved.

Not just there; the comments here on the relevant thread are the same thing-- there's some kind of magic special Apple attenuation that's different from HTC attenuation because HTC attenuation is just normal and inevitable whereas Apple attenuation was predictable and avoidable. Because if you say "detuning", the way the signal bars drop is more impressive than if you say "attenuation."
Apparently it comes down to "just don't hold it that way, but our way of bad holding is slightly less likely than Apple's way, so nyah nyah nyah."
