Behold Samsung's Shoddy Crooked Galaxy Note 3 Home Button - Did Anyone QC This Thing?

Yesterday, I picked up my new baby - a brand spanking new Galaxy Note 3 that replaced my aging Note 2. (Update: I'd like to clarify this since a lot of people have misconstrued the "aging" comment for something it's not. My Note 2 has a screen crack and shows significant wear and tear.

It's a great device on many fronts, as David pointed out in our extensive review, but it appears putting out solidly built products was not on Samsung's roadmap yet again.

Samsung Galaxy Gear Review: What Am I Supposed To Do With This

Watches. A lot people used to wear them, because a watch had two great functional purposes: giving you the current time instantly, and providing a quick, easy, and almost universally recognized way to socially cue that you're becoming impatient / need to go / it's getting late. A lot of people actually still wear watches, but by and large, the reason has changed - it's mostly about fashion. For some people, maybe it was always about looks, but now more than ever the watch is, in any functional sense, obsolete.

The online-only T-Mobile variant of the Moto X was the first to get the surprise update, followed quickly by Sprint. Now AT&T is next out of the gate, leaving Verizon trailing behind. We probably could have pre-written this, and maybe we did. You'll never know.
