    How many of you have had your phones since launch day and have they held up hardware wise (buttons)? Just curious if thing was built to last for 2 years lol.

    I've had mine since launch and it's holding up amazing. I'm still impressed with the way it's built and the software.

    This thing is amazing. As long as I keep mine in a case it should last me a long time.

    Buttons are fine and even better each week as I'm constantly finding new ways to avoid pressing the unnessary hardware buttons

    On my Samsung galaxy s3 running android 4.0

    Because unlike ios, i keep my apps in app drawers, and not in infinite cluttered homescreens

    I have to say that mine is holding up just fine. I've kept it in my slip case since I got it and have had a screen cover on it a few weeks after launch. It's pretty much like on day one. I managed to score a free OB Defender since Friday. I'm not sure I'll keep it in the OB as it makes the phone fat and the phone is too phat to make it fat! I still love it and find new thing to love about it daily. I'm axiously awaiting Jelly Bean in hopes it might somehow be even better...

    I had to exchange mine because of a faulty screen (the bottom of the screen right above the home button was turning purple), but other than that, no issues.

    Had mine since Aus launch and its fine except for the up volume button starting to stick after a week or 2 but I think I had it in my pocket with keys or something to cause it. Place in Brisbane replaced the buttons for me under warranty while I waited on Saturday. Replaced the screen as well even though mine was still perfect.
    He said he said the most common repair is for cracked screens?
    Clearly lots of dimwits in Brisbane.
