    I am not too fond of it's word completion, especially coming from the D1's, which, to me, was significantly more intuitive and astute at suggesting better choices for completion.

    With the TB, it seems like I nearly have to finish typing the word before it will suggest that word. My D1 was better at that.

    Also, the word selection bar covers the "Send" button in portrait mode.

    And it tends to save the word when all I want is to just use the word and not save it.

    My only real complaint is the lack of a camera button like my D1. Every other difference is just a matter of getting use to it, whether it's different buttons or placements or wording.

    - Home screen doesn't rotate in landscape. Very amateur.
    - That bleeping Backup Assistant error icon that never goes away
    - Swype seems terrible on the TB. Worked great on the D1.
    - USB connector location, as mentioned.
    - No matter how many times I confirm that I have assigned different ringtones to different people in my contacts list, only the global ringtone plays, regardless of who calls. And my custom ringtones disappear from the list and reappear when they feel like it.
    - Phone earpiece is eardrum-splitting loud on lowest volume.
    - LED color limitation blows
    - Photos disappear from Gallery and have to be found using a file browser.

    I have experienced some of the annoyances mentioned already. Like the auto complete and the suggestion bar in the way of the send button. I came from a d1 and will take these small issues over the d1 any day. I'm very happy I switched.

    At least it has an LED.

    See Samsung products.

    -Horrific amounts of bloatware

    I'm waiting until my free wifi hotspot runs out to root it, this is my first smart phone of any kind so I'm pretty new at it. I'll be very glad to be free of all this junk popping up in the background and bogging down my processor/memory.

    -Kickstand doesn't work when charging (landscape)

    They may as well have included a dock with the stock package and charged an extra 30 bucks for the whole thing. Very annoying.

    -Stock messenger is terrible

    Very slow when switching between contacts, sometimes I'll check a new message and close it without replying quickly and the notification will still be there.

    A minor annoyance, with my OG Droid I could edit or rename my contact categories like for the hospital my mom stayed at I had a "front desk" number and changed one to "patient services". With the Thunderbolt you can't change anything. Mobile, home, work, work fax, home fax, pager, other.

    Battery is way better with CPU turned down on screen off and 4g turned off. Rooting truly realizes this phones potential. Hadn't even noticed some of these things till mentioned here...DAMN YOU IGNORANCE !!!

    I had big issues with the battery life. Also had an issue with 4G but Verizon fixed the 4G network to be more stable. As far as other issues previously explained I have not had those issues.

    If you're looking for a good way to increase battery life, there are a few things you can do. Turn down screen brightness and screen time-out, or install Screen Filter. Turn off location services when not being used. Get a task manager that supports auto kill. This part is recommended for experienced users only. Go to Phone and type *#*#4636#*#*. This opens a hidden menu. Go to Phone Information and scroll down to "Set preferred network type:". Originally it will say CDMA + LTE/EvDo auto. Change it to say CDMA auto (PRL). This will give 3G instead of 4G but my battery life is much increased by doing this.

    Btw juice defender or whatever did not work for me.
