    You may not think there would be a reason, but trust me, it's a pretty big improvement. The way I like to describe it is "it can keep up with me". I like to flick through and press the home button and multitask/app switcher button with great speed. It keeps up. Apps open up almost instantly compared to my N4 where it was fast, but not this fast. Some apps are up basically as you're taking your finger off the screen to open it. This screen is absolutely beautiful too. Thankfully, the battery life (for me) is great. Even with auto brightness on. Auto brightness if quite generous on this device too. I think I could probably pull 3 days out of it with about 1.2-1.5 hours of screen time per day as long as the cell signal is good.

    I should probably shut up about this thing though. Y'all are probably tired of hearing me rave about it.

    I've got one, too. Definitely a nice device. Don't miss my Galaxy S3.

    Got mine this morning, certainly a step up from a Desire S
    Think I'll look at flashing some ROMs in the week

    Edit - How do you use this "Ok Google" doesn't seem to work for me
