Don't get me wrong, my 83xxs have been my two favorite phones/smartphones out of all that I've used, but the build quality is very near the bottom of any I have owned. Both my 8300 and 8310 got dust inside the protective lens within 6 months. And to make matters worse, RIM wouldn't stand behind their product and replace/fix it under warranty. But I still keep coming back because of the OS, form factor and usability is second to none for my purposes.
