  • Patent number: 11595873
    Abstract: A communication device, method, and computer program product mitigate antenna performance degradation that can result from folding or closing the communication device. A controller of the communication device identifies that the communication device is in a marginal coverage area for receiving a downlink in a first radio frequency (RF) band. The controller determines that first and second housings of the communication device are positioned in a first position that has degraded antenna performance for the downlink whereas a second position is not degraded. In response to the housings being in the first position while the communication device is in the marginal coverage area, the controller prioritizes connection to one or more nodes to communicate with the communication device via a second RF band.
