I thought the answer to this question would get yes and no answers just like every other SGS issue gets a batch of yes and no's here.
So these dang screens suffer the same as plasma screens of yesterday?! Having to use the SGS differently than other types of devices sounds like another real letdown. The iPhone doesn't have much of a status bar and it's annoying compared to the pulldown status bar of the Evo/Android. In other words, am I the only one who thinks it's no good to have to hide the status bar or any other feature that would be fine on other devices? Not asking for perfection but the SGS does some things better than other devices. It would be nice if it also did all of the other basic things all the other superphones can do like have a status bar always on (without causing damage to the display) because....well......it's a status bar.
