I am glad that you liked reading through it.
This was kind of a tribute to this great piece of technology, which I have been enjoying for a while, and just wanted to make people aware, how awesome it is.
I have been reading through your comments for quite a while, and you have already covered its technicals in much detail, and I am in complete agreement with your opinions, (except few). I also liked the trick you shared a while back on how to be steady while taking pictures, and seems to work pretty well with the indoor shots.
The only thing I do not agreed upon is your opinion on doing a factory reset every time before / after an upgrade, since as I mentioned, I have seen this phone learning just like a human, so, I do not want to mess up with that.
To prevent myself with malware, I use premium antivirus suite, so, till now, I am running the phone without needing a reset.
To Summarize on the screen, camera, processor etc, I must say here that I have been more than satisfied with the screen, and its speed.
The photos taken from any camera comes to life if I view it on this screen, the display is as good as looking through your eyes, I have seen my friends and colleagues dropping their jaws while looking at it, and that's what makes your money worth :-)
I have reduced the use of my laptop to a great extent, thanks to all this phone can do for me.
I have captured "award winning" photos (literally) with its camera, amazing resolution, focus capabilities and clarity. I must say here that I came to know about the "Anti Shake" feature nearly six months later, which further enhanced my camera experience.
All in all a great experience, and also a good stay on this forum as well, on this forum, I was informed ahead of time for any upcoming upgrades, and read many different views about this device.
Recently, I have read few people unnecessary bashing this phone, for some issues they might be facing due to their own problems, so, I thought to spare some time to write a few words on it.

It seems that you have the phone for longer than me. But it would've been great if you shed some light on some parts such as camera, screen, battery life and performance of the device.
I have the phone for more than 1 year and 1 month now and I am really happy with the device.
I am waiting for a device that can prompt me to change but no such device yet. Even current gen phones are only slightly better.
Have a nice day
This phone seems to get better and better with time. A true life companion for me. I grabbed this piece soon after it released, and it has been more than satisfying experience for me.
Believe it or not, if you came across a term called "anticipatory computing" this is what makes this piece special.
This phone actually learns from its master, and gets modulated as per my needs, but the criteria for that should be you must not do a factory reset, or it has to learn everything all over again.
To give few examples:
It has understood when I wake up, and when I go to sleep, and it adjusts the notifications and call volumes accordingly, it is also aware that who all are important to me and whom call I shouldn't miss, so, when I am asleep at night, I have found that I have heard it ring for only those calls, else I see missed calls in the morning for unknown or less important numbers, and this is without the blocking mode on...amazing!
It has understood when I go to office and what route I follow, so, when its the time to leave, it provides a notification about the traffic conditions, and estimated time it would take to reach, similar notification I receive when I leave for home.
I can also feel that it adjust the receiver volume according to the surrounding noise, and I am able to hear it with absolute clarity in any situation.
Similarly, it reduces the background noise from my side, and many a times people on the other side have passed compliments for the voice quality and asked me which phone I am using.
It has also learnt the way I talk, and picks up and learn some phrases from me as well and when I use S Voice, it gives feedback by adding those phrases when applicable, that is simply outstanding, it seems as if we are talking to a human.
One most used feature for me is Watch ON, it can control your TV, AC, and Set Top Box all at once, and also provides recommendation for the TV shows I may like, simply awesome! I can set reminders, record them and hell lot of more features.
There is also a "Significant Motion Sensor" built in, which I believe is a sensor that anticipates accidental drops, and may prevent data from being corrupted with a fall.
It takes care of my health, tracking my daily workout routine, it has a feature, which uses GPS to track the distance I have ran, how much calories burnt and all other stats, that too without using mobile data.
It can automatically create ringtones for me for any song I select, by choosing the best part of the song to be played, works pretty well.
It can recognize text from images, and can copy that as text.
And there are much much more to add to it. After an year and two months of use, still it manages to surprise me with some or the other hidden mystery..
I believe its worth every penny I spent
My Experience with the latest upgrade received few days back:
The screen seems to be more brighter and sharper.
There are few UI tweaks including change in GPS icon on the notification Bar, and more flatter icons.
Smart Network Switch feature has been added which switches data between WiFi and mobile network to help in uninterrupted downloads and data usage
Animations are much smoother
The video player's navigation bar is now translucent, and looking elegant.
There might be some under the hood performance changes which are not visually apparent.
Battery Consumption is being on a bit higher side, but this is the case with every update, it usually stabilizes after few days.
Whoever wants to have this piece, just go for it, just make sure you buy from an authentic showroom and do not get cheated.
