If it wasnt on Verizon. I love how a dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro cant handle all the verizon bloatware they pack in, great hardware, crappy software, and verizon is awful about updates or lack thereof.
I was thinking just the same. There's an international version of this phone (with the same exact specs but just sightly different look) it's UI performs smoothly, not as blazing fast as an elite phone but consistently smooth.
I'm surprised that this phone showed such poor battery life, given that verizon has the best available coverage. Its GSM counterpart performs a lot better.
