    I picked mine up yesterday. Will be doing a full review for my b/vlog "PocketTechBlog"... Have camcorder sample uploaded to you tube for now.

    Beautiful phone!

    I just got mine yesterday. I was kinda sick of how the majority of Android phones seamed so similar.

    A. It is by no means a "top of the line" spec'd out device
    B. The camera sucks (although *other* photos look GREAT on the screen)
    C. Not being able to move apps to my SD sucks

    A. Being *nearly* "vanilla" is awesome (unistaling/disabling crap is great).
    B. Using (the highly customizable) Holo Launcher makes it look/act very "clean"

    Overall I love it so far (with 2 weeks to try it out) I was able to find a great looking case that doesn't cover the top and is extremely small (atleast in the pics; it should be here next week) around the sides.

    I bought mine last weekend .. and only under duress as my other phone was crapping out. LoL

    It is an "ok" phone - but if I could get a Z3c on Sprint I would drop this in a heartbeat.. but alas.. I needed a new phone, don't do Apple, and have small hands and like small phones. The specs are about the same as my 2 yr old Motorola - but at least I get an upgraded processor that will go past Jelly Bean.

    So far the issues I have found that make me consider returning it are:
    ~ it hangs up on calls if my cheek touches the screen (yes, it is supposedly "locked"),
    ~ the image quality is sub-par (my old phone had the same resolution cameras and the pics were much better)
    ~ Can't move apps to the sd card (according to a developer we have to wait for them to release an app2sd ROM update)
    ~ Can't turn the shutter sound off on the camera... VERY annoying! when doing as the FAQ on their website says - it takes a photo - not mutes the sound (and yes, it makes a sound when using the down volume key as well). Yes, if I remember to take the entire phone into silent mode it won't 'click'.. but I am not going to want to do that every time... and I'll miss calls/msgs because I'll forget to turn the sounds back on once I finish taking one photo..
    Is there an option to mute the camera "shutter sound"?
    Yes. Please hold the volume DOWN key to mute the device.
    ~ The screen is nice - but is very fragile.. I have never cracked a screen or even scratched one.. and this one got a 1/4" scratch in the glass on day 2! (and I am rough on my toys.. shoved in pockets, bags, and purses.. dropped frequently)

    My overall reaction to the phone is "meh"... and if something else comes out that is spec'd better - I'll get it and give this one to my 76 y/o Mom (because she won't find any of these things annoying.. LoL)
