    Nerdy stuff
    I switched from an Evo to a NS4G, and while I love the phone, I have been having issues hitting the spacebar and the alt key while typing. I first thought this was because of the smaller screen compared to the Evo, but then I looked a little closer. While testing my phone, I noticed that most of my button presses had to be near the top of said button to even work. If I press the spacebar or another bottom-row key near the bottom 1/2 of the button, it won't register at all. This explained why sometimes I'd write entire sentences without spaces!

    I compared it to my friend's Nexus S on T-Mobile, and his screen was dramatically more responsive where mine seemed to fail. Same goes for a friend's Evo and another friend's iPhone.

    Anyone else notice that the lower row of keys is very picky compared to other phones?

    I have had some issues getting the spacebar to register. Then again, I'm also getting used to a touchscreen in general, having come from an LG Banter.

    Doing some experimenting here, it does seem that the bottom half of the spacebar key is unresponsive in landscape mode. A rather major issue!

    I've had problems with the spacebar not registering or typing a . instead of a space.

    I think alot of it has to do with getting used to the layout because it has gotten better with use, but I definitely have run into the screen not being as responsive at the bottom edge.

    Biggest problem I've encountered so far is flipping it to Spanish when using Swype. Only takes a few times to realize what I've done.

    I've been having the same problem. Guess it'll just take some getting used to.
