    Would love to see some pros and cons if any of you who have it can pry yourself from it for a few.

    Played with one this morning but was not blown away. I'd been fooling around with a Skyrocket at the AT&T store just before and actually liked it better. Granted, I didn't get deep into ICS at the Verizon store but still. Camera took a steady hand but did take good, fast pictures (couldn't distinguish from Skyrocket). The biggest thing was the build quality. The door kept coming off because it was attached to a security tether and the pressure was too much to keep it on. The whole thing felt cheap.

    No. It really doesn't feel any bigger than the 4.3" devices. If you're coming from the og, it'll be an adjustment though.

    Super fast, great screen. Getting used to the ICS UI still. They had a problem activating mine, the SIM card wasn't playing nice, so they put a new one in it and after struggling again got it to work. I did lose all data connectivity after the 4.0.2 update came through and rebooted, but another reboot fixed that so far. So far I really love it, I am coming from a D3 and a D1 before that. Still have a lot of playing and setting it up to my personal uses. :)
