I got a used unit so far ok naman in terms of durability. Have dropped it couple of times ok pa rn.

Right now I upgrade the ROM having some software problem pero its my own doing.

Overall I enjoy using the Dopod 838Pro/Tytn. Very useful especially calling them overseas using skype & making chat on Yahoo M.

I don't think that dopod ever recalled the 838pro. TyTNII should be worth considering as well

My unit is a Softbank x01HT which is the same as the Dopod 838pro. So far I have not encountered any major problem. I actually compared the xda zinc and the Dopod 838pro before i bought my unit and feature-wise
the most notable difference are the ff;
838pro Zinc
1. Quadband / triband
2. 3.5G / 3G
3. A2DP Bluetooth / A2DP not indicated in specs
4. 400Mhz / 520Mhz Processor (faster)
5. 1350Mah / 1300Mah battery
6. MicroSD / Mini-SD

i'm an O2/MWg Zinc user and the unit is sturdy enough for my needs. and best of all, low-profile lang sya since majority are using tytan I/II Very Happy

Btw, for more info about the zinc, you may want to read carlo's review in this link :

Ako nagka issue w/ my Dopod 838 Pro. Big headache. Display fading in/out intermittently. Front Keypads not responding.

Warranty repair, pinalitan nila ng M/B upgraded to WM6. Problem gone.
Very happy w da outcome.

I hope this helps with your query!
