I will be interested interested to see a tear down of these phones.
What is packed in there? Electronics are getting smaller, this phone is bigger, so I don't know what they have to pack in there.
There are many smaller phones that have all of the same things. The only bigger things are the screen and battery.
Also, I understand the capacitive buttons are out, but if you are going to waste real estate on the front of the phone, use if for something.
