Summary: I have been using this smartphone for over a year and a half and continue to enjoy using it. With the recent Kit Kat upgrade, it continues to offer new usefulness - with new features and new apps.
Summary: I bought the phone because I knew that the bootloader was unlockable at the time. I didn't have a problem with the original software, but the custom roms are great. The battery life makes this phone very worth it.
Excerpt: Hi Purplefish, Download the Swiftkey app. I love it and find it easier now than a physical keyboard. Also, download the K-9 app for your email. I have a pop email account and the K-9 handles it beautifully. I don't use the factory email. I've had the phone since the launch (almost a year) and still absolutely love it!
