I don't want to make this long, so here's what I think in a simple format
-Great screen. Good in sunlight and displays colors pretty well. It'll just take a while to get used to IPS vs Amoled. I also wish the screen wasn't so conservative when it comes to autobrightness. That more software though.
-Good battery life. Get's me through a day fine. I rate a 9 as Razr Maxx or Windows phone 7.5 (or below) battery life and a 10 as flip phone battery life.
-Beautiful Design that feels good in the hand. I'm slightly worried about it cracking, but I've had it for more than a month, it's taken a few spills and it still looks good. Let's put it this way: I'm not worried enough to be willing to put the bumper case on and hide these beautiful lines.
-Good Software. It runs great, but I attribute this to the device itself rather than the software, as the Nexus 7 and Galaxy Nexus slowed down on the update from 4.1 to 4.2. I assume 4.2 isn't as smooth as 4.1, but the Nexus 4 just powers through it to make it buttery smooth again. And might I say this phone is FAST. I'll still give it a 10, but that's just barely a 10. Google can still make some changes for the better.
-Fast to charge
-Okay camera quality. s not saying much as I came from a Galaxy Nexus
Overall a great device.
