i'm not able to really quite explain what i meant by bands of light. you must have checked out the other thread about the yellow spots right? yeah quite similar to those.

i wouldn't say picky, but when htc themselves admit to their customers that they screwed up with some stuff, i'd rather go get something more solid and stable. that's just me though

Heat isn't good for it, but it's common for lith ion batteries to get hot when charging. My Galaxy Tab 8.9 gets pretty hot too. Haven't checked the One V yet.

well i had a bit of heating as well, but not a lot. probably cuz of the body that it would conduct a bit of heat, i guess it's not a big issue unless yours is pretty much sizzling :P xD

That to me is the only realistic problem, which my phone doesn't have at all.

The light leak is really no big deal. Neither is the signal strength issue. Side-by-side with my Wildfire S the One V always has equal or better signal and I've never dropped a call with the Wildfire here in Cambodia or Thailand. Where you dropping calls?

My earlier unit didn't have it at all but this one did. And the light leak is intensr, u can see it very very clearly, coming from sort of under the screen, even in normal view. I'd post a to show what I really mean but don't have it anymore now..

gsmarena.com posted their review a couple days ago and had quite the opposite experience:

Connectivity suffers no death grip

We tested the phone for death-grip and we didn't find any problems - Wi-Fi signal drops if you completely cover the top plastic panel on the back, but the reception still remains quite strong. Cell signal didn't budge.

I don't notice this either, and as I said before, it's signal reception is better than my Wildfire S so I'm quite happy. The WFS has never dropped a call and I doubt my One V will either.
