- The keyboard is amazing. Typing with keys again, whilst arguably slower, is such an enjoyable experinece and far more accurate. Also without a virtual keyboard occupying half the screen it makes answering emails or long messages easier as I can still see the whole message. I am coming from a purely ios background and I have no inclination to switch back. The main reason for this is the keyboard shortcuts. I have no icons on my homescreen and run purely through shortcuts, the cleanliness of this really appeals to me. The battery is phenomenal. I would be a heavy enough user and I comfortably get 2 days out of it and if I was being careful but still regular use could get to 3. If I was going somewhere where I wouldnt have access to a socket for a week you could make the phone last. The build quality is top notch and it feels great in the hand. It is all very cleverly designed with intutive little bits. Clearly a lot of thought went into this phone.
- My only complaints are Android related coming from ios. The Android os is simply not as polished as ios. The stock Nougat icons are ugly and whilst icon packs can mitigate this they can take up processing power and create a small lag when returning to the homescreen. I avoid this through using the keyboard short cuts. If you like the android design/dont care how they icons look then this obviously wont impact your decision.
