ICS is the greatest thing to ever happen for Android By Sanjay_123_, posted: Mar 9
Being an owner of this device for about a month now, I believe I can give an accurate review on the phone. The operating system, Ice Cream Sandwich is absolutely AMAZING! It is my favorite feature for this device. It is love at first sight with ICS, and it was such an easy transition from the iPhone 4. Moving on to the form factor, and overall design, I believe Samsung could've made a bigger effort in terms of quality, based on their 300 US dollar budget. The screen is the most incredible thing I have ever laid eyes on! However, the flimsy plastic construction is downright inappropriate when we are talking about a phone that is a fifth of my home mortgage!
The placement of the power button really seems to grind my gears as well. While watching videos or movies in landscape, I always seem to press the power button in mistake for the volume rocker, in which both inhabit the sides of the device. I must say, I Am a bigger fan of the power button on the top right of the handset, but I guess I will have to get used to it. I will find that the battery will begin to run out with a fourth of the day left! I highly encourage everyone to purchase the 2500MaH extended battery at a Verizon store near you...other than that, great phone! I love it, and know you will, as well!
