I received mine a few days ago. Yes, it is heavier and bigger than S4 and 2014 MotoX but I do like the more natural looking screen than the saturated SuperAmoled.
However, I am completely underwhelmed by this phone. I was expecting far better.
It does lag. But, it lags less when using Google Home Launcher as opposed to Stock launcher. Moreover, the 2014 Moto X FLIES in comparison and is the definite speed champ.
Camera is better than the Moto X but still feel it isn't the best. It is acceptable.
Software interface is a step or two above TouchWiz. In fact, Sense 6 is the better interface overall if I had to choose.. Not crazy about it but is workable. I really prefer pure Android,
Call quality is average but not great. It has that robotic quality to it like the S4, and just not as good as the Moto or even the HTC One Max.
Last but not least, for some reason, my battery life is terrible and is on par with the weak Moto X battery life. Now, I did buy the L3 on Swappa and perhaps it may need a new battery, but I am glad it is removable. Just may have to pony up for an extra.
So, overall, I am a bit disappointed. I was expecting to be bowled over but wasn't. Good phone, yes, especially at almost half price! Best phone, maybe not.
