    I don’t want to say I told you so, but upon the hinge mechanism of the T-Mobile G2 first being revealed I immediately voiced concern with how it would hold up structurally to repeated use.

    Mine doesn't have the hinge problem.
    I'll bet a solution is as simple as tightening something, but it's still unfortunate since my G1 hinge is still going strong after 2 years.

    And I can't be sure, but I think my phone reboot on me once.

    The G1 slides making the phone seem wider. Z axis remains the same.
    The G2 screen comes out at you when you open it.
