Big, but sexy screen!

Advantages: Large hi-res screen. Solid performer. Good camera.
Disadvantages: Size might not be for everyone. S-Pen of questionable usefulness.
I wasn't 100% sure about this phone when I got it; I thought it would be too big, but ultimately was tempted in by the high resolution screen which I thought would be good for web browsing on the go.
I have not been disappointed. Yes, the handset seems HUGE initially, but I soon got used to the size, and being thin and light for it's size, it fits comfortably in my trouser pocket. I honestly don't notice the size now.
The screen is absolutely gorgeous, and is great for viewing photos, video and the web especially. People with small hands might find it a bit difficult to use one handed, and I myself,have struggled at times but now seem to switch from one handed to two handed use as required without noticing.
Performance is solid, with only the occasional lag.
The camera picture quality is excellent, and for me is as good as my point and shoot camera.
The S-Pen, for me is a bit of a gimmick. I rarely use it. Though I imagine, if you are of the artistic type you could make half decent drawings etc.
I also use it for reading eBooks in bed, which is nice with white on black text and backlight turned right down. The text is nice and crisp.
All round a great phone and certainly worth it for the deals available since I got it. There are probably better out there now, but if you want a solid phone with a big screen and you get a good deal, then go for it!
Summary: Great browsing, photos and video - if you can live with the size.
