    HTC Sense launcher doesn't not allow landscape view on the homescreens.

    Seriously?

    The OG Droid didn't do it unless you opened the physical keyboard.
    Some 3rd party launchers I've used don't do it either.

    I really don't see what all the complaining (trolling) is about with the phone.

    The battery isn't great, but it isn't awful either. The phone is fast, smooth, and the 4G rocks. The phone hasn't "failed" me in any way that I couldn't easily overcome.

    My OG Droid did not rotate to landscape mode with the phone closed... only with the keyboard opening would it rotate. (Stock launcher)

    That's right - Stock launcher had that behavior. Different launchers (Helix, ADW) added the rotate w/o the keyboard being open.

    The TB homescreen does not rotate using Sense. Some apps, like Pandora, rotate 360 degrees.
