While the shiny plastic back and simple front don't set it ahead of the classier competition from Apple, HTC and Nokia, the edge to edge 5.2" full HD IPS display does set it apart, as does the Qualcomm 800 CPU."

It also borrows some color from the iPod line, not to mention launching with iOS 7 and a case material we’ve not seen since the days of the 3GS."
