Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still the one to beat This phone is the standard for a reason. Great battery life, good camera, and always first in line for the absolute latest Android OS updates. It is a fantastic feeling knowing that your device will be kept current with near software features and security patches. Beyond that, it is a lovely crafted unit. Sleek with a bright readable screen. It doesn't get much better than this.
