Yep. I've had it since November and its done me well. In the back of my mind, there is a voice that keeps telling me "You should have got the S3 when you had the chance." But one of the things I like about the phone is its size... even with a silicone case, it fits in the pocket of my jeans and jacket... I can hold it in one hand and cover the whole screen with my thumb (Have the Swype beta loaded).
Camera kind of stinks, but I don't take a lot of pictures anyhow (and when I do, it does what I need it to). Internal space is limited, but a 16GB cd card will help things a bit. The rest of internals are pretty good.. .I ran some benchmarks on it and it scored fairly well. Screen is bright and clear.. colors are pretty good. I had some stability issues early on, but the JB update seems to have cleared them up. I mean, other than the camera and the fact that it ISN'T and SIII, I can't really complain much. Does exactly what I NEED it to.. heh...
One drawback I am definitely a little bummed about is developer support. I'd love to play around with some of the custom roms out there... but there aren't really any out there... Other than custom recoveries, there isn't much support. That's the biggest issue I have... but that's just playing... It was time for a new phone and didn't want to drop the $200+ for the SIII... I wanted it dirt cheap. And of all the options I had at my disposal, the Stellar was by far the best choice.
Due to it's price (free with contract in most cases), it ends up as many people's starter smart phone... then they get it, play around with it and realize that they should have spent the extra money and got the SIII. And I have to admit, if someone contacted me saying they'd sell me a Verizon SIII on the cheap, I'd jump on it in a heartbeat.
But I am happy with it.
