Ya Missed Some Stuff...

Doesn't seem like you really spent a lot of time getting in-depth experience with the new device... Very opinionated, not very comprehensive.

In the inbox, or any mail folder, you can now multi-select messages for deletion, moving to other folders, etc. That's an important new feature readers might like to know about.

You missed the variable-speed advancing through audio files in the media player.

You described the coating on the screen as something to make it smudge-proof. Actually, it's there to make the smudges easily wipe off. Works pretty well. Now, wiping with a sleeve, your pant-let, or a soft cloth actually produces a clean screen instead of just smearing all that grease around.

Something worth your mentioning regarding voice notes -- you can play them back through the speaker, or the earpiece -- great option.

If you want to email a video, there is a size limit -- not sure what it is, but I recorded a minute sample, tried to email it, received a warning and was dumped into the video editor with a pre-defined trim length that I'm assuming was the maximum allowed -- the trim outline color was different than when doing a regular edit. Elegantly handled limitation ;)
