Anyone not a fan of the kickstand design? I want to be able to use it as a night clock on landscape at night but I can't because the charger is in the way! Thy should have put it on other side I think
Also having the speaker underneath makes the sound muffled when you have it down. Just could have been better placed I think.

I agree, I don't like the kickstand either. It muffles the sound and makes it harder to hear, such as when I'm using GPS and trying to listen to driving directions. This forces me to have to open the kickstand while holding the TB in right hand, and driving with my left hand. A pain. The kickstand is a joke.

I like it...
But they probably should have put the charging port on the other side. But who knows, it may have not worked there without a redesign of the phone, every millimeter is planned out on these phones. We have no way of knowing what requirements/instructions the engineers had.

If you look at how deep the hinge goes in to the phone it is fairly obvious the hinge and USB port couldn't bgr on the same side.
Plus, the volume controls would be down and that would be really bad. Also, since most people are right handed it makes since to put the charger on the left side so you can hold it with your right hand while its charging.
Trust me, I'm sure every facet of this design was analyzed more than we could imagine.
