5.0 out of 5 stars Best snartphone phone today, July 18, 2012
I went from using the iphone 4s (jailbroken), to the HTC one x, then to the Galaxy s3, so I can reallly say that this phone rocks.

Pros:
1. Android is very customizable, I'm using the nova launcher and will try another rom soon.
2. Power button placement is perfect, so you can easily turn it on or off, unlike the htc one x. Volume button placement is good, and is on the left side like the iPhone, unlike what one confused reviewer was complaining about. Plus, the home button can wake the device, unlike the htc one x.
3. Great battery life with power saving mode on. And you can surf the net with inverted (black and white) on the stock browser, which just about doubles browsing time for me (iPhone can invert, but the lcd screen didn't save battery like an amoled does on black pages).
4. Plastic feels fine in the hand, don't know why ppl complain. I use a case most of the time anyway.
5. Speaker is loud.
6. Has dedicated notification leds, unlike the iPhone. The htc one x leds are barely visible under the speaker grill.

Cons:
1. IPhone has more apps.
2. IPhone headset has better bass.

4.0 out of 5 stars Title is misleading, it is not 100% clear, but matte, May 28, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
My fault for not carefully reading the description, but from the item title, it implies a clear protector, which it is not. In the description, it does state that it is matte though.

Application is easy.

Cons:

1. Not clear, in that I get a tiny bits of light distortion when looking through the protector.
2. It is 2 millimeters too short of covering the whole screen.
3. Finger doesn't glide as smoothly as I'd like it to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Phone, Don't listen to these ppl, May 10, 2012
This phone has great form, and speed.

EDIT #2: Back to 5 stars. Update 1.85.502 fixes the multitasking problem and wifi/connectivity issues. This phone seems like an excellent buy now. Bootloader also unlocked at XDA.

EDIT: I now give it 4 instead of 5 stars because it does not have any real Android multitasking like my Nexus. Further, I can't even fix this issue because of the currently locked bootloader, which is lame.

PROS:
1. It's light for its size, and easy to hold (average sized hands).
2. Best screen on the market compared to any phone, including the Nexus and Iphone.
3. Extremely fast, ICS.
4. Great battery life even with huge screen and average battery size.
5. Phone is already rooted (check XDA forums), so you can remove the AT&T bloatware.
6. Bootloader unlocked at XDA

CONS:
1. 16GB memory is the only option. (Free 25GB dropbox for 2 years though).
2. Battery size is average, could've been bigger and removable, but the battery life is very good.

Some people give it low ratings because it's not available on Verizon, and because they generally don't like the Android ecosystem (Apple fanboi), not the phone itself. These aren't valid reasons to rate a specific device below it's true value, so check it out in a store first.
