I bought magnetic reduction for my N900's micro usb port. Works perfectly, 
no worries about breaking USB anymore.


I am wondering why those shitty USB connectors still exist while there is so 
nice solution (magnetic connector). The answer is probably to make 
manufacturers happy: more broken connectors => more sold phones.

It looks that QtWebkit is not very good. Maybe Qt5 version is better. IIRC 
jolla has browser based on gecko and qt - it works quite nice.

I would trade color LCD display for e-ink. Maybe someone with yota phone 
could comment if e-ink is enough for dayily use (reading SMS, calls, 
browsing and maps).
