Summary: I purchased this phone as a replacement to my Samsung Galaxy Nexxus. I read the reviews on many phones, to include iPhone 4S. The iPhone 5S had just came on the market. I had ZERO desire to pay the ridiculous price of a new phone, as I fully intend to maintain my old contract of unlimited everything. Anyways, I was enticed by the long life of the battery and the expandable memory capabilities with a mini card.
