    Just wondering if anyone else has some motions not working e.g. contact call not working even with default number set. Other motions work and yes it is switched on! Also on pressing the home button the home screen can take a few seconds to appear correctly i.e. screen and apps gradually appear, slower than my htc desire! Maybe I'm a little naive but I was expecting it to be quicker than this. Wifi drops out occassionally... etc. Any thoughts? Have I got a duff one?

    I'm having issues with motion as well...I cant seem to do a screen capture with my palm swiping over the screen?? I don't know if I'm doing it wrong or if it's my phone! Anyone else having issues with this problem?

    I've done this and definitely quicker when animation involved but screen still slow to 'redraw' when returning home. Screen capture works fine for me tho.

    I think there will be issues with those untill they realease an update for the OS... Same thing happened with the HOX and the WiFi issue... After they realeased an OTA update the issue was resolved

    Fingers crossed. Just a shame that such major selling points don't work. But then how often does everything work straight out of the box? :rolleyes:

    Does the side of your palm touch the screen? I was having problems at first but since I tried it touching the screen it works every single time.

    For direct call to work you need to either have a contact details screen open.. like the contact card which displays all the details like his or her email... number etc... and then put it to your ear it should buzz and call directly... it also works on the text messaging app.. but i found the message has to already contain sent messages from before to work..

    I read that the apps load slowly after pressin the home button becuz the android system doesnt keep the previous screen in memory so it loads it fresh everytime... very annoying

    I've tried every screen relating to contacts. It doesn't even work in the 'try it' screen of the motion settings page!

    Hmm you may have a dodgy sensor... what about things like if you have dim screen when in a call... does the screen dim when your in a call and you place it near your ear

    Good point - tried that and the screen does dim! Strange. Tried again using the 'try it' in motion settings and it just changes to landscape. Getting a stiff arm now!

    I initially had all my motion features working, but in the last few days they have stopped working. Most notably the screen capture motion isn't working.

    OOPS! Inadvertently and unknowingly had turned off the "motion" features. Back on now and all working fine.

    Smart stay works on mine - have to give screen enough time so it doesn't time-out anyway; works well. Now if I could just bend my arm in a special way to get contact calling working...And I'm beginning to think the home screens are taking longer to 'redraw' on returning home. Let's hope the update fixes it when my battery is charged. Wonder if I should have stuck with HTC...?!

    Screen timeout set to 5 mins. Rumour has it that latest update will fix my re-draw issue and so far so good. Doesn't seem to be any change to contact call motion working though.
