I ve used this phone for one month now(Fido Canada/ 4.0.1). And my experience is has been mixed:
1. Battery has been the biggest let down. I would classify myself as a moderate user and on the best of days i can only manage 15 hours
2. Camera: Though only 5 megapix the camera is brilliant. Love the panoramic and time lapse interval modes
3. ICS: The best thing about the phone. Its a breeze. Love the recent apps button and the swipe to kill app feature. Most of the Apps i ve installed work fine i don't know what people are complaining about.
But It do has some bugs like default music player gives me static if i am running a lot of apps and at times the text on menu would get all muzzled up and i have to restart. No sync with facebook sucks big time. Syncing google calendar is pain in the ass.
4. Music and Video quality: Brilliant, I use senheiser headphones and i love listening to music on this phone
5. Browser: Brilliant and if you are a Gmail you will fall in love with the Gmail app its excellent.
I hope Google solves out the problems with the update soon. Haven't rooted my phone and don't wanna.
TZ GUY, 04 Mar 2012got this phone a few days back and it only gives me 10hours of normal usage...is it only mine ... moreRegardless of what smartphone you use, getting a day out of it is perfectly normal-- Presuming that you're actually using it. If its sitting there on stand-by, it should last through to the next day if short range connections are off. It probably wouldn't hurt to have done the old 8 hour out of box charge, but I don't think it will alter a lot. I hope this helped you out :)
TZ GUY, 04 Mar 2012got this phone a few days back and it only gives me 10hours of normal usage...is it only mine ... moreThey do always recommend that the handset is charged for the full 8 hours, if you only allow it to charge for 4 hours the phone will always only ever charge upto that amount of battery For exampled if 4 hours = 50% your phone would charge show as a full battery but really you only have 50%
Always charge your phone for the full recommended time
Hope this is some help for future

People buy Samsung because of how they have integrated android into their phones, which also matches their hardware. If you say it like that, why doesn't the majority of android users just buy HTC, Sony, or Motorola? Because last time I checked they also produce android devices.
No card slot and 5 MP cam--- :-( but i am still waiting for the phone anioxly
OS is the first and best possibility to introduce something new. And this time with android 4.0 icecream sandwich is aimed to bring something new and amazing in this phone. also the android beam introduced in it ables us to share webpages, apps and YouTube videos simply by tapping phones together.
