    That's probably the most useful and professionally made review I've seen on the Nexus 7, and swayed me to get one.

    I've just ordered the 32gb version of the Nexus 7 and an OTG micro usb cable to connect my 64gb memory stick for movie storage, also ordered a micro usb to hdmi cable in case I should ever want to watch movies on a big screen.

    It's goodbye
    Sorry to say my OSF got wet and is now pretty much dead, it does switch on but the screen quickly fades so you can't see anything.

    So I've decided, as much as I enjoyed it, and it's a great little phone, I'm not going to get another, I'm going for a Samsung B2710, it may be a step back but I want a phone that I won't be worried about dropping and getting wet.

    Good luck all and thanks for all the help and info.

    Robert.

    I was going to give it a go but 36 hours isn't very long to give it try it really, probs tend to show up a few days/week after you start using it.

    I'll wait till there's some feedback on the app.

    Good luck with it any way.

    I've also had the same problem, I wrote a post about it.

    The long and short of it is I phoned Orange, they sent me a new battery and a charger, the result was a huge difference in the time the battery lasts, before I was charging every day, some times twice a day, now I charge every two days with fairly heavy use, wireless is always on.

    Another update.

    New battery arrived but didn't solve the problem, called Orange again and they've sent a new charger.

    Problem is solved and battery life is massively improved over the old battery and charger, phone fully charged at night is still showing 100% in the morning on standby, during the day on standby, the phone still has 95-97% battery left on stand by.

    A couple of hours browsing, tweeting and Angry birds in the evening leaves me with 75% battery.

    Has any one asked Orange if they have any for sale?

    I know they've got them in stock Because they sent a replacement out to me next day delivery.

    Quick update, Left phone plugged in over night, got up this morning and the phone had discharged from 77% down to 1 %, it wouldn't even switch on till I plugged it in to the PC, phoned Orange who did a diagnostics on the phone, not sure how they did that? they said it's a fault battery, a new one should be here tomorrow.

    I've changed cables and with no change, I thought it was perhaps the charger it's self?

    Weird behaviour when charging
    For the last couple of days I've had an intermittent problem when charging my blade.

    Plugged in to the charger it says it's charging on the screen and at a particular percentage, when I go back to it it still says it's charging but the percentage has dropped by 20-30%

    Last night I plugged it in to the charger, again it said it was charging but actually discharged by 30%, but the screen wouldn't sleep and the text saying it was charging was flashing on and off.

    The phone also discharges rapidly if I use it, It was on 100%, I went on Twitter for 10 minutes and, and the phone went down to 30%, I plugged it in, a few minutes later I looked at it and it was down to 1%, but then started charging its self up.

    Last night I forgot about it and left it plugged in to the charger, when I got up it had charged to 100%

    I'm calling Orange later to see what they suggest, but wondered in the meant time if any one else has come across this problem

    The map shows good coverage at my location for O2, yet with a GigGaf sim in my phone there's no coverage, there's no reliable signal untill I drive or walk about a mile up the road, then it's patch for until I get to the nearest big town, 10 miles away.

    As much as I'd like to move form Orange I'm stuck while there's no other reliable mobile signal out here in the sticks.

    10 minute limit on the recording time, so you would need to buy the app for longer record time, costs £1.85 :(

    I've got a Bench phone sock Look Here.

    SF fits nicely, and the sock is well padded so may give some protection if dropped.
