So, I've had the phone since launch. Overall things have been pretty good. However, I am starting to get frustrated.
Two major flaws that will make me put this phone up on Ebay and probably never go back to Samsung.

A. SD card is locked and I can't store big files on it. This morning I've started getting insufficient memory messages when updating my apps. Yet I have 10 gb of space still available on my SD card. Unacceptable.

B. Plugging a charger into this phone in the dark (when you come home late night after work and don't want to wake up your wife) is nearly impossible. Due to the size and awkwardness of the USB 3.0 port. I'd say I have a 10% chance of plugging in a traditional USB and 2% of plugging in the provided 3.0 USB cable without having to turn on a light.

Other issues.

-Camera still takes way too long to initialize.
-Samsung software isn't the greatest.
-There have been no updates from Samsung after launch. No phone is perfect, this one could also use some help.

I might grab the next generation HTC because I think they are really onto something.

Edit: not being able to root and fix these issues myself is the biggest flaw of all, if Samsung remains unrootable then I won't use their phones.
