    This is my first smartphone and I don't know if it's my phone or not, but It takes 2 or 3 tries to turn it on? Is it my phone were do most of the new Samsungs have that problem?

    i never have a problem turning it on, but i do have to hold it down for a full second to turn it on. it was annoying at first but now im used to it.

    Press and hold until you see the logo pop up, its not a press and let go thing. It prevents from accidental power ups and wakes.

    That's the problem i'm having I can press and hold it forever on the first try and it wont boot up. Then it takes two more tries. But it works fine on lock screen. I'm going to try it on my bro's phone to see if it's just mine.

    I have that same issue. I press and hold first, and if I don't see anything after a few seconds, I let go and press again (and possibly a third time). Obviously not a huge deal, but it does seem odd.

    I have the same issue, but don't turn my phone off unless absolutely necessary, so it doesn't bother me.

    I also have encountered this myself. Normally if the phone was just turned off it can take a moment or two for something internally to clear out. Thats when I've seen this problem

    yeah the only time ive ever had this issue is now with the extended soft key lights...they stay lit for an extra few seconds after the shutdown screen so i have to wait for them to turn off before i can power back on. but ill take the minor, minor headache for the mod :D

    I havent done anything with those yet. To be honest I dont think I like BLN :(. Seems like more of a battery drainer than a convenience for me. Oh well, still using it. I havent done wasup's back light mod either. So much is a changing so fast. dev's are pumping the goodies out with some quickness

    yeah no biggie to me, but It was a pain in the ass when I was trying to get in to recovery mode! Now that Rom manager is working now no more fighting with it!

    No issues here on powering on. I just discovered that the volume rocker also turns the phone on, might try that. The power button opposite the volume often has me adjusting the volume my mistake as I power off. A bigger issue is the placement of the charger port on top, plain stupid.

    I rather like that the power port and 3.5mm plug are both on top. I can sit the phone in my car cup holder, stream music and charge the phone without it looking like an octopus.

    I actually think that was the point of the charger and 3.5mm jack on top. Ease of cupholder use :)

    Not that I like it that way, but it's just a minor annoyance on an otherwise fantastic device.

    It's better than on the side like my Dinc has. Now that was a dumb idea, especially since there is no dock for the Dinc.

    I have the same problem with the power button being unresponsive until the 3rd or fourth time I touch it - to wake the screen up, not to turn on the device. But I agree that the biggest issue is that I'm constantly turning the volume of my phone down when trying to power on the screen and then missing calls and alerts! Stupid, stupid, stupid placement of the power button.

    I had this happens but it happens only when you just turned it off and you try to quickly turn it back on. Just give it a few second after it turns off and it turn back on with no problem.
