archer6 - I think the 8800 is pretty solid. I just think I have a "bad" one and will probably return. However, I do agree with sean76 that the squeeky/crunchy sides are a poor design or build. I have had close to as many phones as you and am used to the "squeek" like the 8700 has. This is directly related to the plastic used and the rubbing like you mentioned. The 8800 sides seem to get worse over time and actually "pop" away from the housing. I don't see a big gap (YET!), but every time I pick up my phone, the MONK side of me feels the sides "crunch" in and out. I guess it is a mute point if you change phones often, but I believe the 8800 sides will become worse over time.
