It feels incredible in the hand. The body is perfectly sized and easy to hold, with its one-piece construction eliminating a lot of the angles and seams that a lot of devices, even the iPhone 4S, seem obsessed with. The slightly amorphous shape to the whole thing feels more organic and more natural than most phones. -- Matthew Panzarino
