"The best, Giving up iPhone 4S, love this"5.0 starson by amneel
Pros: Large display, Picture unlock, voice to type dictation, Customization - widgets of music player, slide show, weather where ever you want, high quality GPS voice spoken directions, Blazing fast download speeds, Cloud interfaced with pictures, mails
Cons: Hardly any! It's so good, I would ask Google that why it doesn't come in with more hardware because sometimes I use it in 4 different mode, talking to someone, GPS direction at same time, connected as hotspot with my laptop and taking pictures!
1. Large Display - Vibrant high density large display. Compare with iPhone 4S, you get about 50% more real estate there. Full web site is possible to read without zoom, reading eBooks very nicely.
2.Picture Unlock - Never fails. No more juggling to enter a password, take out phone and look at it, start typing phone number. It's a really new intuitive feature, good job Google, others will follow you soon.
3.Voice to text dictation - Just like Google introduced Google voice for 'navigate' 'call' 'goto website' couple of years ago, now they introduced continuous typing using voice! It really works! Its gonna get better and again others will follow. This phone gives you a full satisfaction of being cutting edge tech savvy.
4. I put Pandora, Weather, mail widgets, notes and slideshow widgets on my home screens. Don't worry if you are iPhone user, you don't know what this means. You don't have to open application, the information is displayed in your widget, like new email, music play/pause buttons, slide show of photos.. I missed this big time in my one month use of iPhone 4S. I can make widgets smaller or larger. I can put them where ever I want. Truly speaking using iPhone seemed like arranging the army for march, all icons in a perfect grid, you just can't express yourself.
5. Perfect GPS with turn by turn voice spoken direction with gliding satellite view, live traffic, alternate routes at fingertips. Can't be better than this. You press on microphone on home screen and command 'navigate to ...' and you don't have to touch nothing else. Ultra easy! It even shows the picture, full 3-D view of each interaction, inside mall and airports, destination, coolest GPS on the market. Just for GPS the price is justified. If you search a Gas station while in GPS mode, it will show you en-route points of interests.. If you are on call, you hear the voice prompts and other caller, other caller doesn't hear navigation prompts. Display changes from day to night mode automatically. Google places show the point of interest with little arrow pointing how far in which direction exactly!
6. Download speeds - 4G LTE speed of 18Mbps in Charlotte, a movie download completed 10 times faster than iPhone 4S on same Verizon network in same place. Just ask yourself, if you want a dial up connection or DSL/Cable, 4G LTE is the only network delivering blazing fast speeds if you like to hook up your laptops, stream videos etc.
7. It was so easy to see all your info, emails, voicemails (I never delete with Google voice, and can read them on display), pictures from picasa, all with one sign in - no iTune nothing needed, Boom - all was there in cloud.
