Summary Being a former Droic Incredible user, it was very difficult to make the switch, however, after witnessing a friend using Siri I thought I should at least investigate. After visiting a couple websites and viewing some utube videos on the phone, I went to my Verizon store. The first thought was to use the 14 day trial to see if I liked it.
Well, I am 5 days into the trial period and I am discovering something new about the phone every day! This phone is unbelievable.
No problem getting my contact information as Verizon did that for me when I purchased the phone.
So if you are a Verizon customer and have any doubts, try it out. It will cost you about $35.00 to return the item if you don't like the phone. I think you will be like me, pleasantly supprised.
Pros Smooth and reliable OS, camera quality, screen size, after market accessories, pretty, fast
Cons No 4G, lack of full customization, contact and calendar syncing is lacking, no LED indicator, no replaceable battery, no expandable storage, maps and navigation is lacking, screen size, multitasking is not as polished
Summary I have been a happy Verizon customer since I bought my first smart phone, which was an android. I loved it, but it got slow and unreliable so decided to replace it with an iPhone (which wasn't available on Verizon when I got my first smart phone). After spending a week with the phone I returned it. It wasn't that it is not a good phone, because it is. Everything that it can do it does very well, more often than not better than my old android. But it was the things that it couldn't do that made me return it. I simply could not live without those things after living with them for almost 3 years.
Here are some specifics:
-I like to customize my phone exactly the way I want. The iPhone allowed for some customization, but it was really just moving stuff around.
-I bring a spare battery on trips (backpacking, camping, etc) when I know I won't be able to charge my phone for a few days. This is not even possible with the iPhone.
-I like seeing a blinking LED light so I don't have to actually check my phone for notifications
-There is no standard turn by turn navigation like there is with android
-IMO, one button does simply not cut it for a smart phone. Double press for this, long press for that... even after I got used to this I didn't think the single button cut it. Features such as multitasking just seem like they were added on top of the OS and don't seem as refined as they were with android.
Now for the stuff I will miss dearly:
-The speed - enough said
-Camera quality - top notch (front facing, not so much)
-The huge choice of aftermarket accessories (all the cases, docks, car accessories... oh my)
In conclusion, this is a great phone, but not the phone for me. I was going to just stay with my old android, but after having the speed and smoothness of the iPhone I want to throw it out the window. We'll see....
