    I haven't touched the compass, used voice control or shot a video yet.

    Aside from "playing" what features have little or no use to you?

    I've tested out all of the features. I think the one I use least is voice control though. Will have to test it out more today, but was never really a big voice control user on any phone.

    Haven't actually took a video yet lol, but at least i'm safe in the knowledge that if i wanted to do so i could :cool:

    Surprisingly i don't use mail either since it doesn't work with Hotmail......

    i just set a short cut for Hotmail on the homepage with auto-login :p

    also haven't used the voice memo's app.........

    Besides testing 'em out on the first day, almost none.

    0 Video
    very few pictures.
    1-2 voice control
    0 compass
    0 accessibility features.

    Also,
    0 MMS
    0 Copy and paste
    0 A2DP
    0 Voice Memo
    0 Push

    Come to think of it. Hardly ever used 3G/3GS features at all. Maybe it's just me .

    Camera is excellent and video will surprise you.

    If you take it on a well lit day it is good enough to show on a full size TV without any complaints.

    In low light its rubbish though.

    Voice control I use all the time and it save me having to dial.

    I should have put that disclaimer. I'm sure everyone tried out most of the new things when they got their phone. My curiosity is now that people have had them for a couple of weeks, how much are the new features really getting used?

    The funny thing is, that is the one feature I would likely use on a daily basis.

    Is this something new? Why doesn't hotmail work? I have never had a problem with hotmail working. And what is the $20. About?

    Voice memo or voice controls. Have played with the video feature but not recorded any - nice knowing it's there, though, I'll use it some day.

    Hotmail does work, if you go through safari.......

    but it won't work in the sense that you'll get a notification when you actually get an e-mail.......

    the problem with going through safari is that any pictures do not show up on hotmails mobile site...not to mention its annoying to navigate....if you pay the $20 to upgrade to a hotmail "plus" account it can be configured to work like every other normal email

    Other than playing around, and/or showing to other people, I haven't used the compass, video recording, or voice control really.

    Voice control makes me feel like everybody's staring at me if I use it in public :eek:

    How about you get a good email provider like Gmail and forward your hotmail messages to your Gmail account?

    Yeah, like most I messed with everything I could.

    I'm using voice control more often now though.
