too bad the Verizon version will not be running the Samsung Quadcore Proc rather a dual core Snapdragon.. Still planning on grabbing one in August or September if they are out on Verizon yet.

From what I can see in this review, that phone is a real disappointment. The voice assistant doesn't even work right...LOL

Very few complaints, I love it! Just wish spotify integrated with the os more so I can control it using voice commands for example.

Glad to hear it. My sister is getting the one on US Cellular in a month or so. Will get to fool around with one then.

I have one of these, the Pebble Blue version (Waited 2 weeks after launch due to the manufacturing "****-ups" - i cannot fault this phone in any way so far, it is amazing - does EVERYTHING with no lag, battery life is 2 days (normal use).

I have had all of the Galaxy S series so far and also a Samsung Note, was awesome for films/games!! but this phone blows them all out of the water (as it should!!)

I got mine earlier this week. I was very lucky, the guy said it was the last one in stock but that it was in pebble blue, I told him "that's the one I'd have gone for anyway."

I've been away from Android for over a year now so coming back was a bit difficult, but that's just me getting back in to the Android swing of things and is not a phone issue.

Now that I've set up my most-used applications, as well as getting the various bits and bobs (flash player, as an example) I couldn't be happier with it. I have the hardest time putting it down and leaving it alone though. Not that it seems to matter, the battery life is really impressive for what's under the hood (and the battery saving mode is a brilliant idea!).

I might not be able to eat for the next week, but I do not regret my decision in the slightest. :D
