Just saying. Having come to Focus S from the TITAN (and before that, Trophy), I still read those threads. The Focus S forum is so quiet on contrast...there are glitches, sure... but they're largely the same ons that affect all Windows phones. Seems like we have less to complain about over here! Now if we could only get the 7740 & newest updates (I am spacing on ####) we could be rid of the disappearing / inaccurate keyboard!

I checked the XDA Focus S forum a couple days ago, and there are crickets chirping over there, too...
I am unlocked, with some of the Homebrew apps, stealth tethering enabled, audio working, screen acting fine, no battery/charging problems, found a cheap aftermarket case...nothing to complain about really. Weird, huh?
The disappearing keyboard doesn't happen every time, so I have just dealt with it, although I notice that it happens at the worst possible times...
I swore off Samsungs after my Captivate, but I reckon giving them a second chance was a good thing...

The Titan forum has settled down a lot too. Most issues are still about call quality but most of the others never get mentioned. I think people are learning to cope. Also, HTC announcing that they are looking into the issue probably eased a lot of fears."Engineering is more than just the number of megapixels." - Stephen Elop

I haven't lost my keyboard once, so I am lucky. I am with you Rocket Girl. I love my S. And as far as I can tell, so does most everyone else. I am hoping satisfied customers inspire some more sales. I want the Focus line to continue.

Best thing is that...although I am having lots of fun watching CES gossip, I am not coveting any of the new devices one bit!!!

You arrived late. When the Focus S was the first "high end" 1.5Gen WP7 device out, there was plenty of pissing to be done. Notedly, the using the headphone jack with headphones would forcibly mute (and no way out) the built in mic during calls, the audio quality took a serious dive vs the old Focus (audio hiss & pop during music playback on higher end cans), and the screen seriously had issues making up it's mind on which brightness to be at (which later "Extra Settings" updates fixed for me, though some people still don't like it).
Either way, I ended up getting the Titan since I already was experiencing burn in on my [at the time] two month old Focus (I used it a lot for turnbyturn navigation - for which WP7 is woefully behind android for many reasons, even with Navigon and Garmin [both I have]).

In extra settings I keep my auto display intensity off. When I power off the phone, the auto display goes back on....even though it says it's off.
Do I really care? No. This is absolutely the only thing I can find wrong with the phone. Am I complaining? No. Just trying to make some noise over here!

My Focus S has been getting alot of attention. By people on the street. And with no disappearing keyboard. Sometimes I catch myself looking at a Titan. Then the S beeps reminding me how much better super amoled+ is over super LCD. In a sentence I love my Focus S.

No issues over here...at all. I didn't even know there was a disappearing keyboard issue.
I switched over from the Captivate (which was a total pile of rubbish), and I didn't want to go back to iOS, so I went WP7.
I just got in on Sunday (1/8), so I'm still in the honeymoon phase, but it looks like this just might be the best phone I've ever purchased, and Windows Phone has itself a new fan.
