I came to the Vivid from the BB Torch. The transition to Android was bumpy, but I had to drop the BB like a hot potato. Anyway, I do feel like I have to handle the Vivid gingerly, due to it's size and the back plate. It is all worth it. Speed, smoothness, brilliant screen, and the envy of all my friends. Worth it. And the camera is fantastic, both still and video!
