Love the build of this device and how snappy it is. Camera even though its 13MB is still very average compare to other 8MB camera but it is loaded with features. The only real downside to this device is not really with the hardware or software but the network its in. For most of us the device will run in 3G and thats Sprints 3G which is terrible despite the device being able to support LTE. Other than this. Amazing device.
