Bought the phone about two weeks ago (silver, 32G),

I can't even decide where to start, Let me just expand over the points awarded above.

Design: The best designed phone till date.
Display: Just gorgeous, life-like display, Although 1080p is just overkill for a < 10" panel.
Camera: Good but can do better. They should've gone with a slightly larger 5MP module instead, even though that wouldn't make much of a difference. Broad day-light shots are a bit overexposed (which i believed is fixed in an upcoming OTA) while low light shots are exceptional and the shutter speed is just awesome!
Call quality: Thank you nokia/ST electronics for that dual membrane mic ^_^
Performance: Not the best theoretically but practically It is. Thank god sense is not a 8gb amalgamation of all the features that would pop up in the mind of a 10 year old.
Software: Sense5 is exceptional, the only grief is you cannot entirely disable blinkfeed but it can be hidden away for now.
Battery: I can't say much about this as I have external batteries, laptops with powerful batteries and wall sockets near me through most of my day.
Ecosystem: Well, It's android.
Honourable mention to boomsound, finally a set of speakers, on a mobile device, better/on-par with blackberry playbook.

Conclusion: The Best Phone Ever (till now at-least). 'nuff said.
