    Love the kickstand but.....I'm I only that wished it was the other side of the phone? Bad placement imho. I watch a lot of movies before sleepy times on my phone.....I love the kick stand for viewing but being unable to chargye the battery while utilizing the kick stand kinda sucks.
    Anyone else feel the same?

    Damn auto correct! Quicksand.....really.....meant kickstand. Bad placement of the charging port is my gripe.

    I agree to both, auto correct on this phone seems to be worse then my old Droid, haha. As for the kickstand, I like it where it is however I wish the charging port was on the top right instead of bottom left.

    Seems they were more concerned with the dock than standing on it's side while charging. Probably something they thought of, but had to choose one way or the other.

    Agree to both as well, OverCorrect (yes, I stole that from someone else) should be the correct term, loved my DX, this thing is a pain.

    You guys do realize that the kickstand can stand the phone up in 'portrait' mode as well as 'landscape', right?

    Ok, that won't help with watching videos while charging. So just make sure its charged before you watch videos.

    Exactly. The solution is to move the USB port somewhere else. Doesn't matter now, though.

    Then the $60 docks wouldn't work. Me thinks that wasn't done by accident.

    Where are the docks? I saw a pic of one early - like before the phone came out and I haven't seen them since. :unsure:
