anubus84 responds on the question of How does it fit in your hands?:
“really good. it just fits. there is no way to describe it really. its very very natural.
the screen is beautiful.very rich and vibrant!”
brock2621 gives his first impression:
this thing is DENSE… first impressions:
1. Super SUPER responseive
2. Deep rich colors
3. Very well built
4. Accelerometer seems more responsive than iphone (although might just be because of size? Aka, because it’s bigger, i’m moving it slower, which makes reduces “delay”
5.Screen pixel density isn’t as good as it could have been, you can easily see each pixel
6.Web browsing is ALMOST as fast as my desktop. REALLY like this.
OVERALL: I’m really happy with it, and will hopefully benefit greatly from multi-tasking in 4.0
Good: Not too heavy; the bezel seems smaller and much better looking than in pictures; the wife liked it (said it was “very pretty”)
Bad: I can clearly distinguish the pixels on the display. It’s easy to tell that this is much lower in resolution and ppi than the iPhone. We’ll see how that works out over time.
