If the battery life isn't that great I might as well get the X lol jk. It looks like an awesome phone & I don't care if it has a front facing camera or not. I'll get a car charger so when I'm on the go I'll be able to still charge it so battery life won't be a big factor. My Blackberry's battery drains fast so I'm no stranger to that. I can't wait for this, November 23rd can't come soon enough!
