You did not know that before you ordered? Every review I saw talked about the kickstand being used while charging because the kickstand is now sturdy and spring loaded. Is everyone a baby who preorded this phone?
broten74: Did you not read the reviews and see the pictures before pre-ordering? You would clearly read/see that the charging port is on the side.
Typically when you pre-order you need to do your research - since you're buying sight unseen. That way, there are no suprises when you get your phone.
How about some more insightful reviews? I'm anxiously awaiting mine but am curious to see others impressions - realizing it will take days for many to fully test and appreciate.
Actually, the position of the charging port is ideal. If you playing games (usually in landscape), you don't want the charging port coming out right where your holding the phone. The port location is designed well because when your holding the phone in landscape orientation, the cord will fall straight down out of the way.
