I have had the verizon version of this phone since it came it out and its one of the better android devices out there. My major issues are battery and design that keeps it from being a top end competitor. First off the materials feel incredibly cheap and I managed to break the back-plate with a 3 ft drop onto tile. Compared to the iphone this feels incredibly inferior because of the quality of materials chosen which seem to be some sort of polymer and their lack of durability. I was luckily able to change it for another one and now have a protective case which makes it a little larger but is absolutely necessary due to the phones brittle nature ( I had a droid 2 that was able to take a lot of abuse before).

My major issue with this phone is the battery life. I have been able to drain both my original and replacement nexus that had the extended battery (2200mah) in about 1:45 using the navigation feature. This phone will only make it through a day if you turn off almost all the radios, mainly gps, wifi, and lte, and keep usage light. Its great having the features on this phone that make it like a portable computer but battery life unfortunately makes this very good phone into and average competitor.
