Early T-Mobile G2 hardware issues, Missing storage, loose hinges [Video]

The highly anticipated T-Mobile G2 is making it’s way into eager customers hands. However, it’s not all good news. Early reports from a few close with the device have noticed that their devices have shipped with hinges that are not fully attached, and even - in some reports - their devices are not shipping with the correct amount of storage. 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]
