    Dumb Droid Flaw!

    OK... I have discovered why many of my calls have problems with answering. When I pick up the phone, I realize I am hitting the camera button inadvertently. The phone then goes epileptic and can't do anything but try to take control of the camera lens (of course, answering the call isn't as important.) It's the same issue as the volume indicator going up and down and the need for something like ring guard. Couldn't they have put the camera button somewhere else, even at the top of the phone where you don't usually press when picking it up?

    Motorola did a good job of initial design but so many of these things could have been solved with a modicum of QA!!!!

    thats always been their think, design the best phone and then by production have it ever so slightly wrong. I think the slider mechanism also falls under this umbrella, have you ever used the slider on a G1?

    If you're having an issue with that camera button and phone calls, download the app that makes the camera button answer the phone calls. Problem solved.

    Alot of this is supposed to be fix in 2.2, except obviously where the button is and I agee, the buttons for camera and volume are in terrible spots, and also are ery flimsy.. (ie: You dont even know you hit them 1/2 the time)

    Cool, thanks. Regarding the camera button sensitivity, taking a picture requires a click but if you hit that button slightly, the camera function seizes control of the phone to work with the lens. Phone goes haywire trying to connect the two. It's maddening and the phone could crash. Thanks for this.
