    When I first saw this I thought "WTF"! I understand that the thinness of the phone dictates this but that's pretty unconventional. After thinking about it, it makes perfect sense. When in the car I keep my phone in the cupholder so the placement works perfectly. It also works perfectly for horizontal docking too.

    After seeing that the GN has the headphone jack on the bottom, I am now saying "WTF"! to that.

    Yeah same for me when I first got it...then when I went to work I set it at the edge of my cubicle and run the charging cable down the back. So the way I set my phone it plugs it right at the top...perfect placement.

    I actually disagree with placement for the using in the car if I am charging my phone and need to make call (and keep charging at the same time) the port on top makes that very awkward.. with regards to the nexus being on the bottom I love the charging port on the bottom and the more I think about it I think I would like the headset port there too..

    Except for the fact that it's illegal in most states to use the handset while driving. That's why they make Bluetooth headsets, and in my case, the ability to connect the phone through your car stereo system.

    Well its not illegal in my state (at least not that I know of) and I have a bluetooth headset and bluetooth in my car but I don't always use it. I still think the ports on the top are bad but that's my opinion

    HDMI and charging port right next to each other...fail...my opinion.

    Care to elaborate on why you think so? IMO, The ports are spread out enough that the HDMI and usb cables I have can be plugged in together and i'd rather have them together as it looks cleaner and is easier to manage the cables instead of coming out at different angles/locations like on other phones. Also i think they did that for the docking accessories. Maybe you know something i don't, though, so i'm interested to hear it.

    I agree. I have no clue why it's a fail. Maybe not a preference but definitely not a fail.

    I just tried out the hdmi watching a movie and had to plug in the charger & it really does make it neat & clean...no cables from all angles. 1+ for great design at least for me.

    I havent really thought about it...but I agree its better on top of the phone, for me. Looking at Netflix on my HDTV and wanting to charge it at the same time, its more convenient on top. Playing a game connected to the HDTV, the HDMI cord isnt in the way. When I say its not in the way...I'm comparing it to my Droid X1.

    It is a cleaner look. And I have Bluetooth in my car so I have no need to actually hold the phone in the car. Easier to hear and talk coming thu the car audio system too.

    For someone like me that isnt supposed to have a cellphone in the office...its easier to hide and charge. On top of the PC or leaning beside it on the floor, its well hidden.

    You guys win...took me a little bit to get used to. The micro port and hdmi are so similar in size i would have liked a little separation...personal preference only.
