No it isn't metal, just plastic. One of the FIRST things that ANY review on the phone mentions.... ;)


I guess it has about the same feel as the Spica then, which isn't bad, it's just not up to par with the other high-end devices out there.

Got mine yesterday. So far for raw power it leaves the poor desire standing. I do have a little issue with it where it seems to take a little breather before it does anything, will be interesting to see if anyone else has this issue.

Just got mine today. Great phone but having a few issues with it. Can't seem to use the mass storage mode either. Also, is anyone elses back case of the phone slightly creaky? Mine seem to creak at certain areas if it hasn't been held down in awhile. Must be all that plastic stuff.

This is getting weird. It does not even recognise any of my memory cards??

To get mass storage working, connect the phone to USB>Mass Storage>Drop Down Notifaction Bar>Hit Mount.

That's how I've been usually doing it (with my other Android phones), but when I hit mount nothing happens.

My initial gripes are...speaker volume low, very confusing and flaky usb file transfer, also any SD cards it formats - is not readable in either Windows or mac..and finally most annoying, I can't get Gameboid to work ;)

What worked for me in the end was to turn off phone, plug usb in to PC, then turn on while plugged in.

Thanks, that seemed to work.

Anyway, about the build quality of the phone. Does your phone make (or feel) creaking noises when you squeeze areas of the phone? (coming from the back case). I assume this is because of the plastic build, but I'm used to having a firm phone that's solid, and this is getting on my nerves a bit.

Thanks for the quick response, that's good to know.

Are the Google services (Picasa, GMail, Calendar etc) as well integrated on this phone as a "Google Experience" phone.

I'm extremely satisfied with my N1 however the hardware of the Samsung looks very tempting.

Thanks again.


Hey. Wondering if anybody has a response to this. I remember reading that Samsung signed a deal with Yahoo! Wondering if this affected this superphone

No creaks at all..in fact my Desire was much worse...but a terrible finger print magnet.

Any headway with regard to rooting yet?

I saw you (Paul) had posted something about it on Twitter but I wonder if you've made any progress past that?

If not, does it appear that it can be rooted at some point anyway, as I wouldn't want to buy one without at least knowing it was getting root at some point!

Cheers,
Robbo
