    These are my only gripes with this phone...

    The new speaker technology on the G2 sounds great but you watch videos in a horizontal position and so far only HTC is smart enough to recognize this.

    Luckily I don't use headphones that much but putting the port on the bottom is just wrong.

    Looking forward to hear more about the phone though.

    Personally I've always felt that having the port on the bottom is smarter. That way when I am using the phone and holding it the cable isn't wrapped around the top of the device and extending to the bottom. Or I can simply slide the phone in my pocket top down and the cable is right there instead of having to reposition the phone

    Most smartphones have speakers on the back, the iphone has them on the bottom and ONLY has HTC put them on the front and I can say its definitely a big plus. So it will be a tough decision to give up my HTC One for this, so I will wait and see.

    I use Bluetooth headphones, so where they placed the headphone jack is non issue for me.

    Same here. I use BT headphones or my Jawbone ERA.
    Port placement, except for the charging port has no meaning for me.

    I like the headphones at the bottom. When I put my phone I'm my pocket its upsidedown even when listening to music
