I noticed many of the people who got the Chinese phone got a better screen, Please just vote so that we can see if there is a trend.

I think we have more than established that it is not tied to China or Taiwan, FFC off center or not. What I would tell someone is if all you have been getting is units from Taiwan and they are bad ask for one from China, and vise verse.

I also believe that the first batches that sent out had more of the bad ones and in certain areas the bad ones are more than the good ones.

If you look through my other thread there is many comments about this.

With this said I had luck with one from China.

Remove the battery and read what is written on the phone. Mine was made in Taiwan, the screen is washed out and the FFC is not centered too.

I think I have 30 days to return it since I paid the full price ( based on what is written on the receipt)

Mine is made in Taiwan ROC with good screen.
Perhaps the build date (I can't find it on the box) may reveal something???

Mine is also Taiwan ... black with good screen, centered FFC, decent battery life. No complaints here.

SLIGHT creek on left side of phone just underneath the volume control but after reading everyone else's issues - I'm not even thinking twice about that one...

i LOVE this phone...

Mine is from Taiwan with a bad screen, FFC off-center. The trackball wiggles slightly and the back button creaks a bit.
