Speed, Speed, Speed, and a little more speed. This is my first iPhone (former Droid X owner) it is a breath of fresh air to have a phone that doesn't lag doing simple things like entering a PIN or typing an SMS. Great design and build quality, just stunning fit and finish, it feels good in the hand and pockets easily. Lightning connector is nice, I kinda wish it was on my iPad now.

Excellent Verizon LTE coverage here in Sheridan WY (AKA the west-end of nowhere :-) ) means network speeds (33 down, 17 up) that rival or beat my 30/5 cable connection Maps seem to be OK in town, will be interesting to see how they work up in the mountains compared to the great Google maps on Android. Camera works well, panorama mode is flawless in my testing so far, particularly important out here when you want to take pictures of wide vistas.

Software is pretty good, have to admit with weather built into notification center, I don't miss widgets as much as others seem to. Do Not Disturb is wonderful, woke up so many times to supposedly "important" gmail messages... looking forward to more restful evenings. Final verdict: buy it!
