Great price for the performance/specs; >27,000 score on Antutu Benchmark x
Very light, comfortable to hold, case finish nicer than I expected
Fast and smooth to use
Screen protector pre-installed,although with 1 visible air bubble :( (although probably better job than I would have done myself.
Have been using phone for just over a week now, great so far. Much snappier than my Galaxy Note 1, and easier to hold (slightly longer but not as wide, makes it easier to hold). Works with my Sony Smartwatch2 and bluetooth car kit, just not at the same time (but I've figured out that it's an issue with updated Smartwatch software, not the phone).
Packing inside box was a little squashed, but I think that's also because they put bubble wrap around the phone to protect it then put back inside retail box (so I'm not going to count as a negative).
Postage was less than 2 weeks, not bad considering I forgot to select DHL fast delivery.
Overall very happy with phone; will update review in a couple of months :)
Stock launcher limits some functionality; install a launcher like Nova or Apex and much better/more features.
Doesn't appear to have option for OTA software update (although Jellybean runs fine as is).
No easy way to root (have read you can use Vroot, but they MAY be harvesting IMEI numbers).
Only one physical button to wake phone (not really a bad point - maybe I was just too used to the home button on my old Note).
As yet unable to find a case to suit (again, not really fault against the phone itself).
