The hinge problem may not be directly annoying in everyday use of the phone, but it could be unsettling knowing your phone is not as solid as you would expect it to be. The real issue here is the hinge is especially loose and the screen is hanging when the phone is held upside down, as seen in the image above. A more practical annoying fault of this issue is when you’re holding the phone at some angles, the screen will snap shut. The second issue involves the storage shipping inside the devices not being what users have actually ordered. In some cases shipped G2 that are said to contain 4GB of internal storage and were clocking in with a total of 2GB. We, as well, have no idea how such a mix up would happen but we expect either exchanges for customers made available or a larger microSD card to compensate for the storage loss. More on this issue will definitely be coming in the coming days. To our forum members who have ordered a G2, are you experiencing any issues? Let us know in the comment section below! [Via Engadget]
T-Mobile employees may also pre-order the much hyped device starting tonight at midnight, however, no word yet on how many will be initially available. The internal site reads: From September 24 through October 4, existing T-Mobile customers will be given the exclusive opportunity to pre-order the T-Mobile G2 with Google at select T-Mobile retail stores, through Care upgrades, and online at http://G2.t-mobile.com. A limited number of G2 smartphones will also be available for employees to pre-order on My T-Mobile. The G2 is scheduled to be available to all customers at select T-Mobile retail stores, Care upgrades, select retail partner locations and online on October 6. The G2 is the successor to the insanely popular first Android phone the G1. Bringing features such as HSPA+, 5-megapixel camera, Android 2.2, Qualcomm MSM 7230 clocked at 800 MHz, GPS, and Bluetooth, the G2 already seems to be a very powerful upgrade. [Via TMONews]
