Stepping up from a galaxy Nexus was not as big of a change as I thought it would be performance-wise. The screen and feel of the hardware was definitely a big step in the right direction though. The slightly wider real estate is superb. When its working correctly is the epitome of smooth and polish. When it's buggy which it has been on and off It's unbelievably bad. right now I'm noticing that the playstore has a bug that causes the phone to overheat. Once it heats up - Stutter city, here I come. The bugs seem software related and I'm hoping we will see fixes soon. Running on ATT HSPA in central IL I can pull in 8mbits down on a good day and another friend of mine was seeing 6.5 mbits down with a straight talk Sim using att bandwidth. Despite the bugginess the phone still delights to no end - especially when you run apps that have been optimized with androids most current design language. My biggest gripe about android and not really the phone, is that the refresh rate in the gallery is still miserable. This is software related and should not be an issue on a topshelf phone. Still as far as phones go, this one is hard not to recommend.
