"It's a keeper!"4.0 starson by xandersun3506
Pros: Looks cool, fast 4G, takes great pics.
Cons: Battery life sucks, no case accessories yet.
Summary: For average joe schmos like me, I really have no idea of jpeg compression or care. I just looks at my pics and compares dem to other pics from other phones. And these pics are nice. I especially love the built in panoramic shot function (yes, I know you can get an app for that on iOS), and the ability to just immediately get into either the camera or camcorder and take a pic/video by just pressing the dedicated buttons.
I am also not a super big user of over the air data (try to get near wifi as much as possible) so I only have the 2GB (before throttle) plan from T-Mobile, which ends up being about $10 cheaper per month than on the other networks. So after just a year, I've saved $120. Even if I paid $199 on Wirefly, in the end I only "paid" $80 compared to if I got another premium smart phone on God forbid Verizon or AT&T, who nickel and dime you for everything. Plus T-Mobile will unlock your phone after 40 days.
All of this for me makes up for the fact that the battery life sucks. With autosync on and moderate usage, I cannot get through an entire day on one charge. Dim the screen, turn off autosync and all radios until you need to use them, then you have a fighting chance.
