Had mine for about a year now and haven't had any problems :) Great phone, camera bump is truly enormous though so it feels terrible to put it down on a table if you go caseless like I have lol

I finally wanted to get a 'premium' android phone with a great camera and small size, and I was very happy with my choice up until the first system update. the camera got useless (focus issues, google it...) and I had to restore and send it...
