I am seriously impressed with the feel and build quality of this phone. The only phone really to match my impression for the first iPhone (aluminium back).

When you first hold it, you'll be nicely surprised by the matt texture of the high quality plastic, it almost feels like metal. Then when you look further, there are no seams or gaps. It is perfect. It is also nicely weighted. I like my electronics to have a bit of weight to it, makes me think it has been built with high quality.

Then you turn on the screem, and it is absolutely beautiful. The black backgrounds of Windows Phone just melt into the screen, the text and images look like the are floating on top of the surface. OLED really is the only way forward from now on. Ive tried in my pictures to bring out how images float on the surface. I was worried about the pentile subpixel matrix beforehand, and while at times i do notice it, its not an issue at all frankly and won't hesistate again.

Some small negatives on an overall impressive phone: Charging takes a while, althouth there is an update out that supposedly alleviates this, with another down the road. The screen picks up fingerprints quite easily. Apart from that i seriously recommend this phone to anyone on the fence.
