So never the less I decided to try again. Pretty much because einfo.co.nz didn't have any other phones that I haven't owned lol.
Gotta say this time round I'm pretty happy so far, no real issues. Pretty heavy use as you do when you first get a phone and I'm on 61% after 8 hours so I'm not going to complain about that.
Really love the smoothness and fluid feel of the new version as opposed to the 3GS etc.
Screen size taking a little getting used to but ts cool,Iove the keyboard.
Wifi keeps dropping at work where it didn't on most of my android phones. My mate in the office next to me has a iPhone 3GS and his doesn't drop.. Might be because hes on 5.0.1 I'm on 5.1 but dunno yet.
Otherwise like it! Will wait and keep testing but from an Android Dev I think it's pretty good for a nice fast easy to use device.
