    -BING? Seriously? It's an Android phone..WTF is MS doing on this phone?
    -No apps that work with the front facing camera (that I can find)
    -LED that doesn't change colors no matter WHAT I set the notifications for.
    -When never turn display off while charging is checked, the display still shuts off or dims to the point you can't see it while driving.
    -WTF is up with the USB charging door? Can't remove it without voiding warranty (according to Tech Support) because you have to open the phone housing. ???


    I wanna root this phone so bad and get it de-MS'd it isn't even funny. WAY too much bloatware for my liking.


    -=Good points=-
    -NETFLIX - and I'm going to use it 24/7 and run up the "unlimited plan" they offer.
    -VERY VERY responsive to touch and scrolling
    -Display (I think) is better than the Charge and TB
    -Screen size is great for games/movies considering I came from the Droid2


    Overall, I'm on the edge with this phone. Multi-tasking is ok because sometimes I loose what I was doing when I try to go back and pickup where I left off.

    LauncherPro works, however it acts flaky in landscape mode.

    I'm not bashing the phone, but after putting it thru the ringer since Saturday, there are some serious improvements that need to be made to bring it up to the "true" Google phones.

    Just my 2 cents. :)

    You must not understand how the phone charges or something. No way that would void your warranty. I really appreciate the rest of your review though!

    I understand how the phone charges, but coming from the OG Droid, Droid 2 and some other phones, none of them had a "cover" for the USB charging port. According to VZW's tech support, there is a small rubber thing that holds the cover in the phone that can't be pulled out without opening the case...which voids the warranty. If you pull it out manually there's a piece that will break off which is why the back of the phone has to come off. ???

    In regards to the battery life - after (now 4 days) of use, I'm getting about 12 hours of medium use. When I get home at night it goes right back on the charging cradle and takes about 3 hours to fully charge.

    Had mine since Saturday and love it. Battery with light usage I get 18+ hours and still at 50% charge.

    After root and titanium I don't even notice bing at all. Front facing camera has to be on for apps to work. I will give you that one.

    I also do not like the charging door but opening the phone... what if I want to change sd cards or pull the battery.
