Well, you guys convinced me. I bought the phone yesterday. I have to say, it is pretty bad ass. This screen/dragging issue has me pretty worried though. I'm willing to have some faith that either Samsung or someone here will release some kind of update to fix it, but if it's a hardware problem then we're all screwed. I supposed it's tolerable with normal use, but it makes anything that uses on screen controls (such as emulators) unplayable. I'm also a little disappointed with the keyboard. The A key is in an awkward spot and the space key is hard to hit. Overall I suppose its still a good deal. The Ultra is really smooth and responsive.
Anyone have any news on fixing this screen issue?
