Stupid place for power plug? or not?

One of the first things I noticed was that you cannot have the power plugged in AND watch the phone with the kickstand.The position of the USB power plug appears to be set for a dock which I'll probably never have. Compromise? Or someone's engineering mistake?

The kickstand works in both directions.

Re: Stupid place for power plug? or not?

aye, flip it over, kickstand is 2 way.

Re: Stupid place for power plug? or not?

Yes, that is a solution. I didn't like losing some of the upright angle doing that.

Re: Stupid place for power plug? or not?

Aye, I agree there. However I would tend to think they moved it to the top for a better grip on the phone with landscape gaming. (just a guess) /sarcasm  I'm sure we'll hear soon how the Samsung Galaxy S3 will do it faster, better, and all that. /endsarcasm

Actually, three way. Works in portrait mode as well.

Turn it over...

Re: Stupid place for power plug? or not?

smotrs, are you trying to stand up the Evo 4G LTE in portrait mode? That is not suitable nor any kind of solution. I finally got it to prop up on a perfectly level hard surface with no table movement or slight breeze. Otherwise it falls over.

Like kmoore said, the S3 will do it faster and better (according to the Samsung cultists). The S3 will most likely have a force-field stand on the back that requires no physical leg. It will just stand there.

That looks pretty messed up

Re: Stupid place for power plug? or not?

You can stand it on the end but you charge it with the plug on the top not on the bottom,that's a good way to complain about the plug being broke and not charging like the og evo!

CAN'T watch a movie up right

Strange, mine balances quite nicely in portrait mode, even with the cord plugged in. I have also tried it with a case on mine as well.
