    Ok I first just want to say that this phone is so nice, and I was so scared to get it from everybody on this thread complaining but I don't see why.

    -I had no mounting problems.
    -Memory is awesome compared to the g1
    -I don't see no lag. I think people say this because of the vibrate when touch method samsung has on it.
    -I actually like the touchwiz interface over the boring silver android. Messaging is awesome with the picture of the friend you messaging.
    -The cube is pointless though, but friends love it.
    -It's plastic but it really don't feel cheap at all.
    -Battery life isn't too good, but what smartphone battery is? What else do you expect from a phone with that nice of a display screen.
    -No reboots
    -I haven't had a force close yet, but when I had the g1 i had at least 10 a day.
    -Has to be the nicest camera phone since my old n95.
    -There was complaints about overlapping objects on the home screen. I love that it can do that.
    -My only complaint is the 4 buttons on the home screen. They are just simply pointless.

    I feel alot are just being too picky. This has to be the best android phone behind the nexus one.

    Some questions though...

    1.Can the home screen go into landscape mode?
    2. Anyway to lower the brightness of the camera flash. It's blinding lol
    3.Im trying to install some apps from my g1. (cracked) Most install but some don't. Is this problem because the apps are only for android 1.6 + ?
    4. Anyone have any super thin case's? Where did you find them?
    5. On the commercial about this phone with the comic artist. He changed the color of the picture with some app. What app is that? Is it pre-installed?
    6.Does the phone lag any with a new keyboard installed? I was going to install swype or better keyboard.
    7.Is there not any light's to show that the phone is charging, or when you have notifications?
    8.This might sound ******ed, but is the screen glass? lol

    Thanks for any answers. :D

    Well it's good to know that there are some out there who really enjoy the touchwiz experience.

    I guess like they say, beauty is in the eye of the beholder (see what I just did there :cool:;):p)

    1. yes but you might have to use a different home screen
    2. Probably not
    3. More than likely yes seeing as behold 2 is on 1.5 still.
    4. No super thin casing but you can get a screen protector and a skin for it from skinit.com. it would be near the same as a super thin case.
    5. It probably was one of the features on the camera try out the features and see
    6. Swype is definitely a good keyboard
    7. Nope just a plug image over the battery indicator to show its charging
    8. I don't have that answer but a screen protector does wonders if you drop your phone alot. Just get a case and screen protector and then you are good.

    i agree with you i have been using this phone for awhile now i didn't like it at first but when BH_MAN came out with his roms... it really kicks ass!!!make sure you try his roms i tried all four of them but i like the Behold 2 Stock ( No Twiz w/ Root & Busybox ) the best because the other roms beside from this have couple issues like well i can only think of one right now which is vibration doesn't work on the other roms but this Behold 2 Stock without Touchwiz is awesome he combined it together with advanced home so it looks nicer than the touchwiz i think (my personal opinion) other roms are little bit faster but no big difference though so make sure you try BH_MAN's rom

    Thanks alot 2fr35h, and I want to try the other roms but Im just going to wait until there is a better looking one, or at least one with the camera,messaging, and music software on it. I really can't stand that boring chrome android theme, I need black toolbars.

    So noone knows if the screen is glass though? Im just wondering because I don't want my phone to end up cracked and looking like every iphone/ipod out there.

    It feels plastic to me. And after about 3 months of use, no scratches, and I don't use a screen protector, just a TMO Silicon case.
