It is a great phone, real good. Ease of use and the latest and greatest best of everything, YES. I am a hardcore user of data and app's and use my phone as a WiFi spot. If you want GREAT battery life then your first choice will be the Droid RAZR MAXX. Screen size and quality is not as great, but I prefer to have my battery last for days instead of a day.
My first choice is MAXX
but if you can wait a few months, some great phones will be coming out not just the new iPhone, but some other G3 competitors.
