    "Bluetooth battery stutters" - clarifying, they said audio player stuttered when listening on bluetooth headphones. However, oddly video playback the same way was fine.

    re: battery life, they suggested disabling (or setting to manual) twitter and facebook updates and/or email polling as that made a big difference. However, overall they said battery (even under heavy use) lasted a full day and up to 3 with less use. TBH a full days use is the norm for smartphones.

    Where is engadget. I reckon they are locked in a room somewhere trying to come up with bad things to say about it and can't. Surely a phone can't be better than their beloved Iphone.

    "what about if you drop it from 10ft, we can then say it's badly built"
    "What do you mean it's lightening quick - try visiting our website on the browser, that'll slow it down"
    "Download an app that is worse than the iphone version"


    :D:D:D

    Actually, i have a feeling that as of lately, they became quite much better. Not as biased. Maybe they were just holding back until the iPad. I quess it's time to turn on the apple filter again. But yeah, Gizmodo is light years ahead. Lifehacker rules.

    Also, they will probably not be making a review until Desire is officialy out in US of A.
