charge port + kickstand


Mar 16, 2011, 3:52 PM
Take note of where the charge port is, on the left side of the device. This is the same side that faces the surface when the kickstand is used. Dumb design.

Agreed. I just started using it and was thinking a great nightstand clock, oh wait. this wont work because the charge port is restingon the nightstand. Major FAIL as the most likely places I will use the kickstand are the same places I will want that port in use.

Good thing the screen flips around with the phone, so the fact that the charging ports are on the other side does not matter.

Except it totally does matter... the argument crazieglued had was that he could not use the kickstand and charge it at the same time... Clearly that is a problem. we know the screen orientation changes with the device turning, but that doesnt help when the kickstand only stays in one place.

Im sure this was done on purpose that people would be "encouraged" to buy a docking station lol

Great phone, not going to be the best this year but it's the best right now! Charge the phone in the UPRIGHT position...perfect for FTF on skype (whenever that may be)!

that was my final conclusion as well.

While possible, not likely. Given the size of these things and the constant miniturization, I do realize the engineers do have limitations and unfortuantely tough deadlines to deliver product.

It still doesn't stop me from complaining about it Smile
