An antenna is the most important device in a cell-phone in terms of wireless communication. If the antenna doesn't work very well, the signal strength drops drastically. For the design of cell-phone antennas, we can adopt a dipole, helical, PIFA (Planar Inverted F Antenna), or intennas.

Retractable Antenna An antenna that you can retract Basically a dipole antenna with toploading (looks like a hat)$2 when you try to buy $0.1 when you are a company 4 5. Stubby Antenna When you open a cap, you can see ahelical antenna. (looks like a spring) You dont have to retract. It isconvenient for users. What is stubby anyway? 5 6.
