    Kidding about being teh most important.

    The browser is lightning fast

    its pretty bad in sunlight / hard to read.
    I think some of the problem has to do with the actual lcd panel and the touch sensor. They two panels seem to be farther apart than most of the phones i have used in the past. Its that empty space that seems to bounce the sunlight around and cause the bad glare. Or i might be crazy.

    Some people have been freaking out about the gps, and its bad accuracy.
    I think most of those folks did not realize that by default the gps is not on. The phone is using triangulation on cell towers and thats usually pretty off.

    Live walpapers do lag the screen swiping a little bit, and it annoys me. I turned it off.

    I would like a way to slow the scrolling speed on web pages. I'm sure i could get used to it, but it would be a nice option.

    Video recording at the highest level produces a little frame dropage, not horrible though, just a little bit.

    In some instances the phone will not go into lanscape mode when entering text. Thats kind of annoying.

    haptic feedback is annoying when texting, i turned it off when typing.

    cell coverage seems about the same as my bb storm.

    Still getting used to android again.

    and having fun.

    another thing..

    Using the touch screen to swipe between the 7 home pages is super smooth and responsive.

    Using the optical trackpad is slightly laggy, just slightly.

    Damm i love the web browser on this thing.

    did you charge first when you got it or did you drain it then charge?

    I threw it on the charger and then i activated it.
    I used the phone while on the charger.

    It took about 45 min to hit full charge, i left it on for another 35 min to top it off.

    It's just engine-sucking eye candy -- kill it.

    i am being super critical though.

    So far nothing is even close to a deal breaker.
