I'm on my 2nd phone (one replacement). First one would discharge battery like water out of the dam. 2nd one has worked great, even after being dropped a couple of times. (Of course I had to download a couple of leaks, rockin the .167 as of this weekend).

My first lasted for 6 months, and then the screen failed to come on. The second one lasted 1.5 weeks, and then went into a constant reboot cycle. Knowing what I know now, I might have tried some BBSAK stuff to one of the two that I had replaced.
I love my Storm.

i'm still on my first one, been running strong since early december. assembled in mexico, for what that's worth; i know where it comes from has some impact on hardware life/performance. Aside from a little dust under the screen (only within the past month or two), it's been great, even through all the bumps and drops i've put it through (dropped it off the back of a pickup truck, etc.).
i knew what i was getting into, buying a first gen device, and while annoying/frustrating at times, i can still say i've enjoyed the ride, being addicted to checking for updates and hybrids. that being said, i still can't wait for storm 2.

I am still on my first one and it has been running great even with all the leaks and hybrids I have been installing on it; except, I dropped it this morning. Now the screen is tough to press on some of the edges, so I might be getting a refurb using the Tech Insurance. We'll see how long I can handle the screen.

Same as the last few posters. I have been on the same unit since November 23rd. No huge issues or problems really. The OS makes such a large difference though, 191 proved this to me.
