    I've noticed that this phone has a very bad reception and an antenna gate effect like the one of the iPhone 4: leaving it on the table it gives me 3-4 bars, if I hold it in my hands the bars drop to zero and some times it even tells me that there is no signal.

    I've also compared it to an old Nokia N82: I have 2 sims with the same operator, one in the N82 and one in the Mini Pro, when I'm in my office the N82 shows full strenght signal while the Mini Pro shows 1-2 bars which drop to zero when I hold it in my hand.
    Has anyone experienced this?

    same here.. I think SE phones have a low reception generally.
    Some time back i had a t630. That also had low reception compared to Nokia phones of the time.
