Everyone I show it to is shocked at how big and clear the screen is. I absolutely LOVE this phone, and I was getting lightning fast 3G service in the woods of VT, while my friends with iPhones were barely getting phone service. My only gripe so far is that the battery is absolutley abysmal. I have to charge 2-3 times a day with heavy usage. It's not a bad trade off though as I am rarely anywhere that I can't plug in.
AWESOME man, glad to hear its everything you want.
As far as the battery goes... did you cycle it a few times when you first got it? Another couple of tips... I turn off EVERYTHING when I'm not using it. Disable background data, turn off 3g wireless gps location and only sync my email once every three hours. Set my screen to about half brightness and 30 second timeout ....I'm gettin a full day with pretty heavy usage. You might ALSO want to go in and manually shut down some apps...or get a task killer.
Obviously if your near a charger its all good, but those are some of the things that have helped me.
This phone is pretty effing amazing
