Users hand can have a great impact on radiated performance of a UE. The impact goes beyond blocking or absorbing a portion of the radiation, since the impedance of the antenna itself may be changed due to the material in near field. Thus, a standardized hand phantom has been developed for radiated testing to reflect real world user scenarios [18].
