I cannot argue with you regarding the comparison you made between the V9 and the Q9h. The fact is that the V9 is probably the very best phone available right now, and if a phone is what you need, I will have to agree with you that it's just about the best there is.Quote:

This only happens with very heavy users who seem to have a habit of pressing the phone too hard, or even wiping the phone's interior screen on their sleeves and putting more pressure on that part of the phone. It seems that nobody ever thought of this, and I know three V9 users who have had this issue.
With a little common sense and awareness of the issue, I think that it can be 100% avoided, and I never had the problem even though I am a very heavy user.
The frame issue seems to have been addressed with the V9x release. The V9x has a stainless steel re-enforcement in that area.
I have owned a USDM AT&T V9, and I have owned the Hong Kong variant V9. There's no doubt they're great phones with very good RF signal capture.
And since they're Synergy-based phones, there is no lack of advice and technical information about how to modify the phone to do whatever it is you want it to do.
I miss my V9's. I just need to type too much to be able to use a "phone" kind of device.
