Seems like all new phones are meant for people with Giant Hands and Pockets!

Mine holds up for between 1 day and 2 days whole (sometimes even with WiFi on!) but depending on actual usage.
It fell of my hands to asphalt, but except a minor dent on the plastic back, left no scratches! i was amazed!
oh and my camera back thing fell, but i found it, and i'm using scotch tape to stick it in place :D
Yeah I went like a year without dropping mine and then suddenly this one month I was just like on crack or something and I dropped it like 6 times! On asphalt/concrete! Believe it or not my screen didn't break and it barely has any scratches Lmao about the scotch tape! Doesn't it look bad? Haha

It's scotch taped from the inside, so you can't actually see it

With s-off I can flash the splash1 screen, mtd partitions and updated the radio with my computer and also try experimental recoveries. For the longer part of a year I used AOSP ROMs on my phone because I'm not big on sense. With that I didn't need dt's a2sd because I just change the partitions on the phone itself.

I am nearing 2 years on mine and I love it still. I've always had a case on it, I've always had a screen protector and it's going strong.

I recently got a class 10 16gb card from Amazon for under 20, amazon brand, and it has made a world of difference. I can actually run data from sd on the sense roms that are just too big.

I am coming up on contract renewal in April, but I plan on handing down my slide to my smart phone allergic wife.

I honestly have not seen a phone that I must have so I am not sure what I'll be getting if I'll be getting anything.

Seems sense is not kind to this phone, back to CM7 latest daily. I have my phone setup with 140 /system and 80 /cache. I delete a good bit from my roms though to slim them down. Don't use live wallpapers, YouTube app and a number of other things. I also add my own icons and audio files for ringtones and such.

Edit: seems with darktrmors app2sd I should be using at least /150 partition to allow for elastic space needs.

Edit 2: I have 1 gig set aside for darktremors app2sd with no swap.

I've had my MT3GS since the beginning of August 2010 and it's one of the best phones I've ever seen ( and I've seen a lot lol) Haven't had any hardware issues with it, dropped several times on concrete/asphalt and the screen didn't crack but I broke 4 hard cases because of that , just some dent on the side and that's it. Modern phones like Sensation and Galaxy S2 are powerful but huge and I like the size of my phone. I'm still going to use it, the only phone that might be better for me is probably MT4GS lol.
Another thing that I like about MT3GS/4GS is that the phones aren't very popular and that makes them unique. And over here in Europe it's very very unique. Iphone users are so jealous, especially when I slide out the keyboard lol))

Yes I love its rarity! People always stare or usually ask what kind of phone is that? Be jealous I like having things other people don't makes them that much better! Haha. And I can only imagine in europe haha
