"Fast, stylish and simple... but breakable?"  By HEDLEY THORNE on January 1, 2013

Had mine for a few weeks- it looks supremely stylish and even my iPhone 5 buddies are showing jealousy. The OS is simple and uncluttered- although stock wallpapers could be more vibrant and a couple more home screens would have been useful. It is buttery smooth in operation, and gaming is a treat on the device (try Asphalt 7 for example). Camera is OK and features good. Worried that I may drop it though, or if it gets hot and I put it on a cold surface the back glass may break- only time will tell. I have to say one more thing that other reviews haven't picked up on- the GPS lock on is perfect- I use Strava and Endomondo as well as Google Maps navigation and the GPS locks on immediately and the detail afterwards is amazingly accurate. Having said that, who really wants a shiny beautiful large smartphone in their lycra pocket on a bad day...?! Totally recommend this phone.
