Detailed review
I returned it within 2 days. The software was "buggy". The cover over the power slot is poorly designed and destined to break off. The power button sticks out further than a regular S4, but there are no cases or bumpers currently available to minimize that. Ultimately it's a neat little "niche" phone just like the Dell Venue that's "waterproof" to a certain depth but the warranty doesn't cover water damage!
