    Made in Mexico or Hungary

    I have my choice of a 9530 made in Mexico or one made in Hungary. Does anyone have an opinion about which might be the better unit?

    Interesting, never heard of hungary made Storm. I have had 3 Storm. 2 from Canada and one from Mexico. The Mexican version was far superior to the Canadian one. What I mean is the screen clicked much better on the Mexican version.

    Ive had 3 already, on my third one now, and it seems to me it'll be goin out for another replacement soon, my initial launch Storm was from Mexico.. lasted a great while before it bit the "dust" pun intended.. Then I got another one from Canada, biggest piece of shit I've ever had.. lasted a day, then it bricked with a faulty LCD within 24 hours, then they shipped me this next one from Mexico which works ok.. been running .113 for a few weeks with it.. starting to get really slow and buggy. Thinking about .132 or .141 regardless, my brother's phone from Hungary seems to smoke all three of mine.. no issues, running .75 and his boot time is faster than all three of the ones Ive had. So Yeah, id say go with the Storm from Hungary.
    Tour 9630 running .230
    Raw and nekkid.. occasionally a Blackberry skin..

    *sits in official 5.0 waiting room*

    Well I started with the one from Hungary and loaded it with 3.5. Everything worked great except reception. It dropped calls frequently and never had 3g, only 1x. I then swapped for the one made in Mexico and again loaded 3.5. Much better reception this time. Never drops calls and almost always show 1xev. I upgraded to v4 and it still work very well but now I have noticed that the bottom edge of the screen does not click. I know there is a way to fix this but since it is under warranty I think I will be trying a third storm pretty soon. Thank you everyone for all the input.
