HTC Hardware Hmphs

So the touch pro is great phone, however there are a few hardware quircks that I just don't like.

1. Chrome. Why must this phone have chrome? My Q9c had it, got really really scratched up and chipped; but the back was some rubberish type thing and it looks perfect. Not a good choice by HTC, I absolutely hate chrome (even though it does look a little nice).

2. Power button - shouldn't the power button be on the right? When I push the power button, my phone slides down just the slightest bit on the bottom. If it were on the right then there would be no where to slide to!

3. Volume buttons - how about putting those on the right too! So when we open the keyboard we can press them AND because many other phones [ex: Q9c] have them on the right!

4. Camera button - this is a smart phone, but nonetheless it shouldn't lack the traditional conventional dedicated camera button! That is doing injustice to this camera phone era

5. DPAD - absolutely hate the dpad, can't ever decide if I am pushing the left key or the talk key... similar problem with right and back key! Ugh!

Any one have any thoughts?

Re: HTC Hardware Hmphs

Exactly. It is just a few really practical, common sense things and I really think they could have fixed a few of these things. Anyways HTC, good phone...just not perfect
