Jedi! I have this phone, and the hinge feels just a tiny bit flimsy, but with use you really don't notice it much. I have bent it back with no problem. When I talk, there is no problem. To me it's pretty sturdy. If you are thinking of giving it a try, why not? You could always bring it back if you don't like it. I haven't had any problem with it at all. No dropped calls, sounds like a landline, very loud ringers and speakerphone. It's a good phone. Like I said, the hinge has just a little give, but not enough to cause any problems. I have had godd experiences with this phone. Hope this helps.
