Pros 4g is great! The phone act as my primary means to the internet with my PC
Cons Battery life is horrible. I get around 4 hours use unplugged with original 1750mah battery. Highly suggest getting an extended battery from amazon to solve battery issues. I get 10 hours with QCell 3850mah extended battery
Summary Great phone if you do not places with no charger
Pros Great screen, compact for such a large phone, wifi solid and when connected works fine.
Cons Battery stays charged for 24 hours with no usage and everything turned off, indicator not even close to accurate. Connectivity weird, keeps failing to send text messages. Wife's Iphone 5 bars, my phone 1-2.
Summary Hope it get better with an android upgrade. I don't know how much is Samsung, Att or android but it is annoying. I wish I had returned it in the 30 day period. No cradle chargers yet available for this phone. And the bluetooth does not pair with my ATT land line base station. I do not use a cell phone that much so when it doesn't work I really notice it. My kids send 100's of texts on their cheap phones but my top of the line only sends about 35% of them.

Pros huge, gorgeous, radiant screen
lightning fast processor
ultra interactive, customizable android interface
the speed 4G LTE is astounding
8 mp camera w/ ultra bright flash
Cons battery life isnt what it could be
the phone gets really warm in your pocket if left in place too long
Summary An incredible, all around android
Pros - 4G LTE
- 4.5" screen
- 1.5GHz dual-core processor
- Superb camera and image processing
- A+ battery life
- Speech-to-text in SMS
- Google applications are A++
- WiFi tethering available
Cons - Preinstalled AT&T junkware
- Android 2.3.6 < ICS (although it is supposedly going to be upgraded...)
- Doesn't fit well in pockets, especially with an Otter Box
- Default applications are not as robust as expected
- Images are rotated 90 degrees
Summary To me, the "plasticy feel" is irrelevant because I got (and everyone should have) an Otter Box. I use the Firefox browser (available on Android Market) which is better than the stock browser and can be synced with your desktop browser. My wife has an iPhone 4S and I personally prefer my camera to hers as a matter of quality, but that's a close race. The screen resolution and pixel density certainly isn't a deal breaker (for me), as I don't think it's that much noticeably worse than the Nexus or the 4S, however it would be nice if it were better. It is also important to know that the stock offerings don't get the job done as far as utilities are concerned. It is advisable to download a third party antivirus, backup, file explorer, application killer, uninstaller, etc.
Pros Blazingly fast on LTE and no slouch on standard 3/4G
Runs everything I throw at it
Battery life is good - lasts all day with moderate - heavy use
Thin, thin, thin!!!
Great power management system
Display is awesome
Very durable - I am tough on phones
Cons Back cover is slippery in grip - recommend a skin or similar
Video, while 1080p, does not come as well as hoped. Still good, but have seen better in an 8mp camera.
Summary I highly recommend this phone!
I travel a lot and no matter where I travel, thishone works great.
I came from an iphone4 and not looking back at all.
