    Milo, you might want to add some Photon-specific stuff. For instance:

    By default the Photon only shows battery life on increments of 10%. Some widgets, such as battery circle, get around that and show increments of 1%. (There's another one someone found that did that, too. But the widget you recommend for Android in general doesn't.)

    The Photon comes with Motorola Media Link, and it's pretty easy to copy your photos and music from iPhoto and iTunes. (See my thread. I'll play around some more with music next week and see if I can get it to respect play lists.)

    Some other stuff I will add as I think of it.

    Thanks for having all the reviews together. They're my favorite things to research when I'm thinking of a new phone.

    hey guys I wanted to ask a question. So my dad just got the photon and he has this issue that i have never seen on an android phone or any phone for the matter. Everytime someone leaves him a voicemail he gets it through a text and it keeps telling him that his voicemail is empty. I have never heard of this feature and i was wondering if anyone knows how to turn it off. He is also coming from a blackberry idk if that might be an issue. If someone has an answer and can help me I would appreciate it.

    There is an optional Service to translate voicemail to text. It is free for the first month only. It popped up with my first voicemail and I said no, so I have not seen that option again.

    I think your dad accidentally signed up. He should call Sprint and quit before he is charged.
