Detailed review
I feel like all of the negativity surrounding this device are completely a result of the plastic/leather combo physical form attributes. THIS IS A GREAT DEVICE! It takes spectacular pictures. The battery lasts all day (and even more than a day if take advantage of certain software features). I can see everything on the display in every type of environment. The phone is lightning fast (once you disable touchwiz and install an actual launcher). So, if you are the kind of person who loves Android and wants a beefy, feature packed phone to enjoy Androidy goodness. This is a great option for you! If you focus on form factor and only form factor of a device, look elsewhere for a phone with less features than this because that is all that is available. For me, who put a case on it immediately because I have toddlers that use my device, this phone is amazing.
