What?

It doesn't seem to matter to me anyway. No Bing, gps works, no lag, always snappy, faster on wifi and 3g vs fascinate, much sharper text, better build quality by far, bigger screen, better camera, a ff camera, 2x the ram, 2x bigger ad card...pretty much solves every complaint I had with the fascinate. And I liked that phone!

It did have a less reflective screen however...and it was lighter. Everything else, including call quality and that infamous echo...not so much :/

So you killed it dead!!

On the first night, a friend used and abused it. So I guess it got intro'd the hard way. :/

I'm working on sanding down the Verizon High Gloss Silicon TPU Case now. Here's some before shots...

At this stage, it's sweat-inducing, has those little scratchy parts down the sides, and gives off glare like no other! Nothing a little 200 grit won't take care of though.

Scratch that...100 grit, then 800. I might go to 1600 for a smoother finish, but it's feeling pretty good now. No more slickness, scratchy edges, and plenty of grip!

Yes the T-Bolt is an amazing phone. Love my Incredible and finally found a worthy replacement.

The Fascinate while it had a great screen the software was terrible other then the Super Clean ROMs that I was using.

It's the first smartphone I've been 90% satisfied with. I would say 60% for Fascinate and 40% for Incredible. There's a few "issues," but I'm going to choose to ignore them for awhile and see if a fix comes up.


Also, while debating about whether or not I wanted to keep the case on, I dropped the sucker w/ force from about 4 feet up. KER-PLOP! Right on it's back...even the kickstand got a piece of concrete! So yes, I do believe the case will be staying on. I've not yet earned the privilege of running around naked.

The worthless Verizon screen protector had to go though. I'm currently trying to decide between the Ultra Crystal, Ultra Fine, or Ultra Oleophobic from Steinheil.

Ultra Crystal Clear : Ultimate Clarity
• Ultra Crystal : 25% Thicker than previous model
• Hard coated for Scratches and Scuffs Proof
• High Quality Optical Enhancement Film
• Ultimate Clarity surface hardness : 4H

Ultra Fine : Anti - Fingerprint
• Ultra Fine Matte Film
• High Grade Anti-glare hard coated optical film
• Premium Matte Surface
• Good Light Transmittance
• Light Transmittance increased by 21% from previous model
• Good Surface Hardness : 3H

Ultra Oleophobic : Oil-Resistance
• Oleophobic coating : Oil-resistance coating
• it protects from staining of oils, cosmetics and other contaminations
• High Quality Optical Enhancement Film
• Good Surface Hardness : 3H

Installed the Steinhall Crystal today. Very, very nice. It covers almost all the LCD and feels fantastic. There's no weird texture, no loss in visual clarity, and the touch response seems as good as ever.
