This phone is simply just great. Yes, it doesnt take fantastic pictures, and yes it lacks an SD slot and so forth. But who cares? The camera is more than fine for social media and in the age of cloud storing its just ridiculous to complain over 32 GBs of storage.

The build quality is top notch. Not as good as the iPhone, but still, really good. As far as the design goes, this thing is a killer. I'm in love with this form factor. It feels so much nicer in hand than the monolithic GSII.

But the real story here, is as you probobly figured, ICS. I've been an iPhone user for 2 and a half year and to be honest, Gingerbread didn't tempt me one tiny bit. It was so ugly and inconsistent. But when ICS came along I suddenly became excited. Turns out this was a major iteration and oh boy, Mathias Duarte had done his job well. The overall interface looks so much better than its predecessor and has become much much more intuetive. The user expirience is just fantastic and feels just as smooth and fluid as iOS. That combined with the open sourced ecosystem of android, makes this phone just unmatched.

This is the benchmark. 10/10.
