Well I impulsed bought like a mofo today, so I might as well share the fruits of my labors:
- It initially defaulted to landscape, not portrait. After a system update it went back to portrait.
- Note: for some reason it seemed to download two system updates; one prior to signin and 4.3.
- Premium feel. Lightyears ahead of the last. The charging port doesn't look like some random triangular shape forced into clean lines--it actually looks clean and flush.
- You can hold it with one hand a LOT easier than the last.
Will update with more thoughts and photos ASAP.
