LTE Finally!, 4" is it enough for you?, lighter, thinner, faster. iOS getting long in the tooth. Maps are bad. Beautiful slate and black look. poor quality control and durability questions.

I came from Galaxy Nexus and while I will miss the openess and customization of Android, I will not miss having second tier apps or waiting for good apps. Also apps just perform better on Apple.

4" is a big upgrade but coming from a Galaxy it seems small. The biggest disappointment is the Maps (which do suck) but the quality control. I along my antenna there is discoloration which I didn't notice in the store, also it came with 2-3 minor nicks. I will be returning but just sad to see scuffgate is true!

Case up and enjoy
