Its too bad it doesn't turn off with the flip. I won't use a flip (I'm part of the 'ditch the flip' campaign), but it is a nice feature to have. All it takes is a magnetic sensor, the Nexus 7 has a hidden one.
Don't limit yourself. I had to shake previous phone thoughts out my head to appreciate the button placement. In essence, it's not in a strange place. You will get used to the power button and here's why.

Samsung has an infinity for putting power on the right side. I can tell they did their very best to still take one handed use into consideration. When holding the phone in the left hand, the index finger is right there near the power button. If it were higher, reaching it would be an uncomfortable obstacle.

They only had 2 accessories, a black body glove tpu case and the oem flip case. I bought both. First impressions are like most have said this thing is blazing fast. Downloaded all my apps from appbrain in record time. Wifi is great although I did notice speeds are faster on N then G but I'll test it further once it fully charges. The sd card went in easily and thankfully isn't under the battery. Phone recognized the card on restart with no issues. I'll update further as I play with this beast.
EXACTLY what I said in one of my post. 2 accessories. The box they were in wasn't any bigger than a shoe box.
