yuppers, it's decent... Has some quirks though. For example my finger print reader stopped working and got hot to the touch yesterday. Had to reboot the phone in order for it not to be hot as crap. I also get random call drops and crashes for no reason.

Nice review. Just updated to 1.57 (rooted) and things are pretty smooth so far. Wish they would hurry up and turn on the "4G" though.

Bought a $0.67 clear silicon case for my EVO. I just wanted to be able to set it on my dash without it sliding around. Mission accomplished! I can understand wanting to protect your phone but not to the point where it makes a thin phone a big bulky brick.

I just installed gingerblur with launcherPro Plus. It fells snappier but that can be all in my head.

Look at this http://briefmobile.com/gingerblur-rom-for-atrix-4g and then do this http://briefmobile.com/atrix-4g-rom-installation-guide. Just so you know this gets rid of all the motoblur widgets. I acutally liked some of them that's why I installed launcherPro.

What Android version is that phone running out of the box v2.3? HTC and Sprint are dragging their damn feet with getting 2.3 over to my EVO.

So, just an update here on the Incipio Feather case:

Image

The Incipio started cracking after a month of daily use... never dropped and it looks like many of the cracks are from the plastic being too dry or brittle...

Here are some pictures after two months of use. The first crack was minor, so I kept using it, but now with cracks on three of the four sides I have RMA'd it.

crack2.jpg
crack2.jpg (24.94 KiB) Viewed 1209 times

crack3.jpg

The phone has never been dropped on a hard surface, but it has been dropped from the couch onto carpet for full disclosure. Never when it was dropped did cracks appear. The cracks just appear at random. Great case, but why is it cracking like this?
