    808 Charging

    The combination USB/Data cable arrangement was I thought - initially - useful, now I am not too sure and here are my thoughts if you are interested.

    1. The phone USB/Charging port although functioning as designed does produce a few issues that are not readily realised. When connected to anything other than the 'Charging Adapter', the phone only recognises that there is a USB connection. Well that's ok cause tht is what it is supposed to do. However, when I use my in car charger - a Nokia 12V cable and USB port [can use for both 808[USB] and N8[cable]] the phone charges but fails to inform you when completely charged and does not display the normal messages. Now I do not think this is a fault or a major issue just something not realised until now.
    2. I constantly need to use both charging methods - car and mains - and I think the USB point on the phone will suffer problems over time, as a result of constant use. This occurs with all USB ports and I have had the issue on my works laptop a few times. You need to be careful to to exert any undue 'pulling and tugging' sideways when the connection is made - like when in the car.

    Cheers

    This was a major problem with my N97. I think having the usb port at the top of the phone helps a tiny bit.

    Yup I think you are right. The side position like the N8 is useless.
