    Awesome phone, incredibly light weight (not sure why people complain about the plastic construction - it is durable and allows it to be light weight - prefer this to an aluminium unibody), ice scream sandwich is beautiful, intuitive, streamlined and powerful. 99% of apps work amazingly well, The best smart phone I've owned - expectations satisfied - Google FTW
