GPS cable can suffer damage when phone is assembled

The cable leading to the gps antenna is damaged in my case. It probably still
works but there could be issues in case you start with a big production run or
over time when the phone is in use. The problem is that the cable connection is
so high (on the antenna) that it runs over the pcb. Here it gets squished by the
top cover, leaving two pressure marks about 5mm apart, which corresponds to the
the pcb retainers on the top cover. I'll try to get pictures soon.

GTA01 released P1 version using different vender from orginal (P0 or Red PCB)

Most of Red PCB's mechanical component is engineering samples, including GPS
antenna, when they turn into mass production, they will do mass production
quality check and that sample will be mass production sample.

The final looking will be check by IQC, not only the cable, but also the
connector itself (diameter/pin size/gold coating), this will affect more than
cable in most case.

When GTA01 out of factory, we have full assembled GPS test, in order to
grantee that GPS works with reasonal performance.
