Hi there,

I started thinking about buying of N900 when I first saw its pictures a few monthes ago. IMHO it's the best smartphone on the market! But ... I heard from two N900 owners about problems with broken keyboard frame - http://im.ly/d1b78/. That fact decreased my willing to own N900. I really like it. I can live with short battery life or raw software. This is just a matter of time. But bad quality of device case/frame is a huge problem. N900 owners can you proof or disclaim that this problem exists with device.

TIA

On mine, you can hear a clunky sound when pushing the frame on the center.
It could be better.

No problem with frame quality on mine.

N900 tends to be very strong, don't remember the name but on youtube there is a serie of 5 extreme tests done to the N900 (water, dust, falls, damages with keys ...)

The only part not so resistant to scratches is the screen. Otherwise everything else is almost undestructible.

Hi guys,
Im my quest to stop my worrying "that i have a defective N900" ( I tend to always end up with the crap ones. )

Is this little bar slightly loose on your phone?
It slike it isnt glued down or naything, Just seems like a bar of plastic that runs from one side to the other and is slightly loose.

Seems liek everything else is quite strong, but it just seems a bit loose for my liking ( probably nothing ) just seems odd considering everything else is solid.

Thanks
G

You probably find it is just a bit of natural flex of the plastic.

My n900 is like this as well.

mine flexes, but it isn't a problem. I didn't notice it until you mentioned it. I'd say it's just fine.
