I wanted one initally, but because of the price I choose the galaxy SIII
Regarding the design, I LOVE IT!!! its one sexy phone. the black finish on the metal covering the sides and the grade of black used is pure perfection for that phone. The soft curves perfected beyond all reason makes it look like something you could cradle in your hands forever
The choice to make it longer also resides well with me, it gives a bigger screen, without distorting the "Feel" of having a lightweight and very portable phone.
