    Today is September 27th, a little over 3 months since my first poll...

    Since the launch of the Pre, I thought I would bring this topic up again and see if the numbers have changed after almost 4 months have past since release.

    People that have perfect Pre's and never had to exchange will have their vote and let youself be heard.

    If you have gone through 1 or 2 or more... then let's find out how many. If you would like to post and explain the reason for the exchange then that would be appreciated.

    Maybe in the last few months there have been improvements made and the numbers will reflect it with the newer users. Also people that have voted before and want to change their vote to where they are currently can vote and make themselves heard.

    I was really hestitant in trying this again because hard to beat such a great response last time and honestly have been surprised how people voted and have posted staying on topic and, I think, keeping it on topic so figured it wouldnt hurt to try again and hope for the same thing.

    Hope people don't mind. My old thread keeps popping up and people keep voting on a three month old poll so figured it might be worth a refresh.

    I ask the mods to close the other thread since it's gotten long in the tooth.

    On a launch day Pre here. I wouldn't say it's perfect, but I've never considered exchanging it.

    got my first and only pre in late july, early july build date. it has nothing wrong with it that makes me consider replacing it.
    it is the largest octopus ever recorded.

    Bought 3 of them within a month of launch but I think they are effectively launch day versions. Mine has been swapped out twice so far - both times the issue was a hairline crack around the USB charging port. My usage pattern is different that the other two in the family in that I have it plugged in to the computer for charging most of the day.

    I bought 4 Pre's. 1- me, 2- wife, 3- son, 4- daughter. All are originals except my wife who is on #4, due to oreo effect (3 times) sheeeeesh. All have home brew to one extent or the other and we LOVE our Pre's

    Zero for me. But that doesn't mean my pre is perfect. It just means I'm lazy and kinda stupid (justlike most typical consumers. This is why those people who defend Quality Control issues as a problem we should just accept are pretty heartless. Most users don't even know you can get things fixed, or live in a market where Sprint CS refuses to replace it and harass/blame the end user for the problem so they end up using a defective product for the entire contract)

    Anyway, I've got flaky usb charging, shutoff when closing slider, 6min boot time, battery door broke off, creaky keys and a bunch of minor gripes. I will get it fixed some time but sprint CS in socal are much stricter than everywhere else and I will lose my invisible shield if I trade for a refurb.

    Still on first Pre since Launch, tho not sure if it'll make it to the one-year mark. 2 cracks on it (@USB and on the edge of screen), the Oreo effect is pretty big,and several holes in the first layer of the screen. We''ll see. . . .
    Always pimpin'

    Still have my original one...not sure its perfect, but its been great. Very mild oreo that doesn't really bother me and one dead pixel I forgot about a week after getting it. I never even notice it. My Pre is great, and I love it...sure, I'd be happy to see it be a little faster and am eager for some tweakability, but it does a great job and being a phone, pda, and web browser...

    My wife and I picked up our pres on launch weekend. No problems here. I've dropped mine a few times and still ticking (did chip it a little bit but it was my fault for dropping it).
