Sent from my Vibrant using the XDA app.
To tell the truth i have used the vibrant for a month after the N1, the Vibrant felt a better phone, sure the plastic build don't help but it is nicely build and the plastic used in the vibrant is from high grade, the molds used by samsung must have been very expensive as the parts were so precise, yes people don't notice that but its there. And overall the vibrant was a nice solid piece.
HTC phones are heavier sure a nice heft is nice but weight does not equal quality, I.E N1 had the ****tiest digitizer, the power button sucks big time. The G2 has hinges problems, the MT4G has the LCD lottery and the FFC being not centered. I don't know why people don't mention that when they say things about HTC. It seems like they only have praise for them. For the record HTC warranty isn't any better than samsung. You have to send the phone in and wait 3 weeks. The only good warranty experience i had with them is the warranty swap of Nexus One but that is the ONLY phone they have such a program.
