Almost 24 hours with this phone....
Battery life is very good.. which I know is an issue for some.
Also note.. I am using it on LTE.
I charged it fully and used it during my night shift streaming pretty much all night on LTE and after 6 hours of that I was still at 70%
Total time with my moderate usage so far seems to be about 10 hours.

Coming from the Nexus 4 the battery life is way better and LTE does not seem to drag it down at all.

Build quality is phenomenal.
My wife is even trying to nick my phone
Screen ... No words for this it's just fantastic.

The things that bug me... the offset home button is making me a little nuts.
You cannot use the back key to close the app drawer like on the 15 past Android devices I have / had... WHY HTC.......

The lockscreen control placement is awkward for me.
The NFC logo being there when NFC is on is annoying....

There are a few other little things that nag me but that's pretty much it.
I think HTC hit one out of the park here. (no pun intended :P)
