    Why design a slightly different case when they can just put a sticker on the button and slap a different logic board in lol

    Setting apart the "classic" Samsung design... this phone actually looks good, quite impressive hardware specs.

    Curious if the camera lives up to the Galaxy/Note line.

    The bulk of this review seemed more interested in talking about the operating system than the phone itself.

    Yes. Too bad they couldn't review it running 8.1. If the user experience for the SE on WP 8.1 is as good as my Ativ S, it should be fantastic, considering the great spec the SE has.

    Yep because were still at that point with Windows Phone because people still generalize it as a third class citizen, so they feels people don't really know what its about. Not every phone is equal and they don't realize that.
