Hi all,
My Cosmo closes nice and tight, but when it is open the hinge is pretty loose and the top is a bit flappy if you know what I mean.

Is this normal for the Cosmo and the Gemini?

Are there any known tweaks for tightening things up a bit? I haven't braved taking the cover plates off my Cosmo yet....

Just found this Gemini post on the loose hinge: Gemini loose hinge post
Has anyone tried this on their Cosmo?

From my experience the hinge of the Cosmo is much more sturdy than the Hinge of the Gemini (At least with my devices). I would say the Hinge of the Cosmo is perfect. The screen nearly does not move when shaking the Cosmo around. With the Gemini I can easily close the device just by shaking it around. This is not possible with the Cosmo (with reasonable force).

My Cosmo screen flops a fair bit, but not as bad as you describe for your Gemini hinge. I can close the Cosmo with a determined flick, but not accidentally.
(normally I close it quite gently, though ... I'm treating it delicately since it would be a real pain to get another Cosmo if I break this one, and it's my daily (only) phone)

I suspect that the factory QC tolerance for hinge tightness isn't very strict. I imagine there are many Cosmos that are sturdy out of the box, and some that are more floppy like mine.
