Alright, perfect is extreme. But I am having a hard time understanding why people are upset.
First off, no phone is for every one. All depends on what you want/need. So, lets look at a few things.
4G – Many folks do not live in 4G areas right now. I do not. A friend of mine works in a 4G area and his thunderbolt went from about 90%+ to 15% battery life in 2.5hours. So even if I had 4G where I live, when would I use it? At that rate I don't think a car charger could even keep up. Plus bandwidth caps this summer.
Yeah, i'll wait until it works itself out.
Front Facing Camera – Ok, I'm bummed about that one.
512MB of Ram – Ok, keep in mind, this may not be the best phone if you are looking for a 2 year contact phone. But 512MB should be good enough for the next 12mo.
But this is where it gets great, for $449 from Verizonwireless off contact you get one of the fastest CPUs out, the second fastest GPU (think the SGX540 is still faster if I'm not mistaken), and that combo looks to be the most supported gaming phone combo for the near future.
Screen – Highest res android phone if I’m not mistaken.
Accessories – It appears this phone will be able to use DX accessories, so for cheap guys like me, this is great!
For a guy or girl like me, this is great phone to buy off contact, and use for about a year and then about this time next year, eBay it, and get a quad core, maybe on contact. OR maybe go to sprint
For those waiting to flame, don't mistaken my ability to save up $449 as contradictory to being cheap. Wake up America, it's called a checking/saving account.
This is just my two cents, feel free to disagree and give you opinion. I love that!
