Best phone I’ve owned in years. If you don’t mind charging a little bit during the day, which I did with all phones, this phone is AWESOME! Got it for free from TMo by trading in an i8 that I bought for $150.
Charge during the day? I woke up this morning with my mini having been off the charger for 24 hours and had 33% left. Best battery life I’ve ever had in an iPhone (never done the big phone thing).
