Bad ass. I'm loving it. That being said, I have noticed a few random 3G fade outs, but I expected that, so I'm not going to bitch much about it. The screen eats battery for breakfast. The first day, playing around with it and showing it off at work and shit - I killed the battery in 8 hours. Completely dead. Yesterday I turned the screen all the way down (perfectly fine in doors, nearly invisible in the sun), turned the GPS off, turned the Google sync off. Had 24% battery after work. That is with about an hour and a half of streaming Pandora HQ at full volume. Not too bad. I don't like not having a real keyboard, as I anticipated. I am basically relying completely on auto correct, which IMO, is bullshit. At least the auto correct is halfway decent. I just don't like having to make sure my phone thinks I'm typing what I'm actually typing. I'm waiting for SWYPE beta to be turned back on. I think that might make it easier. Maybe. I want to turn auto correct off. Downloaded a shit ton of apps. Speech to text is pretty damn cool.
