    Anyone notice the Epic FFC (using Qik chat) distorts the image? It seems to compress laterally with the camera in a portrait direction.

    Yep, same problem here. And Qik didn't really work. I could hear the person I called, but they couldn't hear me. This was exactly what happened in a review that someone did last week. I forget which one, but it was the same audio issue.

    Hope this gets fixed, as this was one of the reasons I went with the Epic.

    Did you press the talk button?

    yes, didn't help. i don't think the other person was pressing talk, and I heard him. I will try again with one of the other Epics in my house and report back.

    Only one person gets the talk button (the recipient). You have to hold it while talking. So far I've been on both sides of a video call with an Epic (using an Evo) and it worked as expected, aside from the distortion. The Evo does not appear to have the same distortion.

    I have to say video chat works pretty well now. Originally it was a complete mess.
