  1. Yeah I noticed I never use the physical search button. The new settings do look a little more friendly.

    Still feel like I'm missing out on a great camera for the phone though. For example there's no zoom and it's a bit awkward for me to use(came from using a Sony Ericsson C905a). I think the rounded bottom shape of the Play also makes it a bit harder for me to hold than other handhelds(and less stable on flat surfaces). Looking less bulky is more important than a little stability loss this time. Most phone users wouldn't like the extra bulkiness. I wouldn't mind that bulkiness if it resulted in more power, battery life, and fit in the hands better.
