A commercial clam shell phone CAD model is used to numerically investigate the effect of a hand phantom on mobile phone antenna radiation performance. The simulation results show that the position of the fingers on the phone, and palm-phone distance, strongly affect antenna performance. This study also demonstrates that the latest breakthrough in numerical tools enables conducting multi-goal optimizations of CAD-parameterized phones in real usage conditions.
