It's really interesting, there is obviously a design fault with this device - either in the software or the gps chip itself - but people aren't jumping on it like they did the iPhone "death grip" issue.
My thoughts are that in fact this seems to be a worse problem in that the gps rarely works if ever and yet from reports I've read the iPhone rarely drops calls. Seems a case of iHate to me.
Anyway, I'll will definitely hold off getting my new device until ALL of these issues are fixed - Apple/Samsung/Android. You never know there may be better and more powerful devices by then as well.
