    I've only seen this mentioned once or twice but one thing that annoys me with the update is the character number that's displayed when typing a text. Why did they have to put a black box counter right in the messaging window when typing in portrait mode? After creating a message, that box covers part of the last word in the first line. And when flipping it to landscape the character box disappears!!?! I shouldn't have to turn the phone to read back what I just typed.

    The concept of displaying the amount of characters left is a welcome feature but the execution is really poor. I would think it would be obvious to place it in another area outside of the field that you're actually interacting with.

    I agree wholeheartedly. A little irritating.

    I agree 100%. It drives me crazy that it covers up what I'm typing (especially since the word prediction is sometimes wrong), and it bugs me even more that it disappears in landscape mode... Makes absolutely no sense...
