    Anyone else see this on their calculator? The numerals are so big they outsize their space. Wierd. :p

    So I'm not alone. It definitely does look like an oversight. Possibly the reason this phone was delayed so long. Something this horrific WOULD.

    I just thought it was the style. Doesn't bother me and it's kinda nice its big. Since y'know, so many people complain about how small numbers are and can't read it. ;)

    It still works and its just a calculator. I'm sure there are other third party ones that yu can get off the market that are beter. Also maybe sense 4.0 was optimized for bigger screens.

    Quick fix:

    1. Disable the stock calculator

    2. Install a new calculator from the Play store, preferably something with trig functions. Hell, install a graphing calculator if you want.

    3. ...

    4. Profit. Or not. Your choice.

    OR... dedicate a home screen to one of the shiny calculator widgets.

    I'll buy it. It's the way that it was designed to be. But Cheech & Chong need to stick to comedy not smartphone development. Wow man, Dave's not here.

    I think it looks cool and I can read all of the numbers. Now a roman numeral calculator would have been crazy. Also, you don't even need to download a different calculator. If you're willing to give up one screen for the built-in calculator widget (red or black) it has NORMAL buttons.

    I agree a Roman numeral would have been Kool, till I hit the equals key. Lmao.
