I thought I'd make a quick post about the oddities of the Jeep Patriot. Any product can be odd, but some things are more odd than others. This isn't a bad thing, it's just whatever you can live with. So here's a list in no order whatsoever. Everything has a delay: the turn signals take a second to turn on, the climate control takes a second to adjust, and even the ignition takes a second for the car to turn on and off. I'm not saying these things should be absolutely instant, but this seems to be a trend with Chrysler vehicles.Hitting the horn is never in the spot you think it will be. In most cars, there's a "sweet spot" where the horn triggers. When you get to know your car, you know how far in to press the horn. This is not the case with this Patriot, or most Chryslers I've driven past model year 2007 or so.

Now, after having the phone for a week, here's some thoughts on my experiences.
Great 6 inch screen. Although it's only 1080p, it's Samsung-vibrant, which I likeGreat battery life, easily can get through a heavy-use day with time to spare at the end of the night.Great camera; another reason I wanted this phone is because I love my Sony a5100 and the camera is pretty dang nice on this phone I must say.Fast. 6 GB of RAM and a Snapdragon 630 are just fine on this beast.
Cons: Poor ergonomics. This phone is huge, not as easy to hold as the S8+, bulky as hell, and pretty heavy.Horrible screen rotation algorithm. I've used big phones before, but this one is extremely sensitive to the slightest tilt of the screen. Now, that would be…
