Detailed review
I upgraded from the HTC EVO 4G when my battery exploded. I was most looking forward to the dedicated camera shutter button, and that alone has turned out to be disappointing as you have to apply a lot of pressure to get it to engage. However, the camera software more than makes up for that. The built in camera effects are great, burst shot is great and the ability to shoot while filming is amazing. The dedicated camera button could be a little more sensitive, but that could also be the protective shell that I have it wrapped in. (I'm just using the blue Best Buy shell, which is actually a pretty fantastic purchase in itself.
