Data/power Cable on top!?

What's with the data/charging port being on the top?

Re: Data/power Cable on top!?

Not sure. After getting used to the Evo, it was a bit of a shock. If I could figure out screen rotation I would be able to position the phone upside down with only the hidden keys on top.

Re: Data/power Cable on top!?

I think all of the Galaxy phones have this design, my Samsung Captivate has it too.

I've gotten used to it by now, but I still prefer it to be on the bottom, not sure what Samsung's thought was behind having it on the top.

Re: Data/power Cable on top!?

Sometimes it's nice, sometimes it's not.

For example, when I'm in the vehicle and have it hooked up to my vehicle charger, I usually always put my phone in the center console cup holder, so with the Epic having the port on the top, it's upright when I do this.

However, it's a bit of a nag if I answer the phone or want to talk on it while still attached to the charger. In this situation, on the bottom works/worked much better.

Kind of screws up being able to use a nice upright PC dock too. Who knows why they did it...

The sprint dock is oriented horizontally.

Re: Data/power Cable on top!?

Which is why I said "upright".

Re: Data/power Cable on top!?

i agree .. it is in an odd location.

how would a desktop dock work? you cant just press in it and forget..

car holders are not that convenient. and silly looking if the holder is on top of the dash board. the cable is sticking out the top.. and would drive me nuts.
i guess it will have to sit in landscape or upside down.

then using the phone with the charger on it. talking on it will be very annoying.. with the cable pulling the phone ..

Re: Data/power Cable on top!?

You guys aren't supposed to talk on the phone whilst driving and charging it anyways :P

If you have to talk and drive at least do so with a bluetooth. I purposely swerve at people holding a phone to the side of their face doing 25 on the interstate to see how much they're paying attention.

ok ok .. im really not that mean im just saying.. lol
