    oh, i agree about the android complaints also.

    that's why i'm using a windows phone (which has its own set of issues).

    But i prefer the lesser of 3 evils.

    Respect! :thumbsup: Still miss my infinitely scrolling home screen with those sexy transparent live tiles (pours one out for WP10).

    Perhaps, but it struck me as trolling which fortunately is pretty rare here.

    it just those types of half truths and innuendo are so prevalent generally right now that grates on me. That and I'm sure Covid induced lockdown is wearing on me as well:oops:

    PS: @negative1 I loved my windows phones as well.

    sure all my friends make fun of me, but i like the physical slider keyboard, and the replaceable battery,

    and of course the rarest of features, the HEADPHONE JACK!!!!

    i also have a lumia 650 as a backup in case i ever need to switch
    when the 3G networks go down.

    And do you know how many Gorilla Glass screens I've seen broken, cracked, or scratched? Gorilla glass itself isn't that reassuring much anymore. However with the hinge in reverse, how feasible would that be with a case/cover or sleeve? Since any case would cover those sides of the device, reverse hinging it might not work as well since it likely wouldn't fold flat anymore. I can't speak to the rest of you who have pre-ordered, but I'm not sure how comfortable I would be with a $1400 phone without a case.

    <<...with the hinge in reverse, how feasible would that be with a case/cover or sleeve?..>>

    It will be interesting to see what accessories third-party vendors offer for the Duo...

    A skin with a "grippy" surface texture combined with an edge guard might work to allow full 360° folding and a screen protector could provide some level of impact protection for the screens...

    Hmmmmm - as an 11 year Apple phone veteran, that's a bit of a stretch. Don't get me wrong, Apple is sly, cunning, and bears considerable watching, but I've had nearly every phone (or its "S" year equivalent) and that has not occurred. I think your pushing the outer envelope a bit...
