Its a great phone, although i've had it since launch ive used the keyboard twice just to see how much i hate them things. only physcial keyboards i like are blackberry ones. It runs great, never have had to battery pull. and i use it all the time. although with GPS turned on it will cut the battery to hours. turn it off and your good for a day or more thats with using the browser and playing games. Overall its a great phone, ive had many and this by far beats any phone or tablet i've owned or used.
