While I'm a very happy Gemini owner and the phone is my main driver, I do have concerns about its hinge. Other users have been forced to re-bend their weakening hinge and I've duct-taped a length of coat hanger into the hinge's groove on the machine's underside for added support.

I can live with this since the Gemini is essentially a prototype, a one-of-a-kind, etc. And my workaround has stopped the wobble for now.

But as I look over the pix at Indiegogo Cosmos, it appears that the hinge design is unchanged AND the screen now carries the extra weight of a camera and an exterior screen. I'm no hardware developer, but this strikes me as a problem.

Are others uneasy?
