Forget everything you might have heard. I finally own the device. Been using it for a day. Every worry or concern should just fly right out the window because this thing delivers in spades and you don't notice it until you just reply to a text or something and suddenly it just coalesces into a feeling of pure artistry. Forget the size, forget the criticism. This phone just goes. Its made to be smooth and beautiful and Apple has done it once again. Everything about bend gate is meaningless. Everything about size and being too big is irrelevant. Nothing anyone says can deny the art that is happening here. A marriage between soul and technology. Such an elegant tool has never before been created by man. All the previous iPhones seem like just an evolution for the mastery we have reached now. Soon the iPad will match too and we will enter a new era of smoothness. I think this device is a flawless masterpiece of perfection IMO that flies high above everything else and is perched comfortably on top of the throne.
