Yup and here is a good page from K6BEZ showing pictures of the trash 
some of these radios have been putting out since Dec 2015.  I'm curious 
if any of the current radios have improved here but I doubt it.


For a triband radio, the Kenwood TH-F6A is still an amazing little 
radio.  I haven't experienced the physical fragility issues as reported 
in this thread but I do know if you plug in a power cable into it's 
charger port "hot", they are reknown to blow their Li-Ion charger 
circuit.  Not good.  It's replacement is the D74 which is way more 
expensive, way more complicated, way more bigger/heavier, etc.  Nice 
radio though.
