    1. really nice click and feel to the keys. much softer than the original.
    2. sim cover is plastic and think the chin is too but I'm not positive...it could very well be steel.
    3. build quality looks better than original. Only issue is the sim door is slightly not flush on one side. I gently bent the sim door in the direction of the gap so now it fits almost perfectly
    4. screen is flush with the steel and not beveled.
    5. feels slimmer in the hand and grippier.
    6. slightly heavier but not noticeable at all.
    7 bigger chin seems to make typing more comfortable. The extra spacing on the sides doesn't seem to be that more more noticeable.
    8. Speakers seem louder. Nice.
    9. No light bleed, squeaks, uneven kb lighting etc.
    10. Antenna seems to work the same as in the original but maybe giving me one extra LTE bar with the Silver.
    11. OEM holster fits perfectly but nothing else does from the original equipment.
    12. The more you use it the more it feels better than the original imo.
    13. See My accessories bundle pics thread. These are much nicer and functional than the original accessories.
    14. when swiping down from the top left you can feel the screen's edge. Not really that noticeable but by applying some slight sustained pressure on the screen to push it back down it seems to stay down. Again, not a big deal for now

    Excellent....mine gets in tomorrow according to Fed-Ex....does it feel like an improvement over the original PP? In terms of what the designers are talking about in the CB article.

    So, basically they took the top half of the unlocked version and the bottom half of the AT&T version and made a "new" one.

    I have the AT&T version and the spacing from the letters 'Q,A,Z' to the outer edge is thinner than the silver edition. The dead space between the letters and sides has widened in the new version.

    Honestly I don't notice a difference. The keys are buttery smooth and perfectly clicky compared to the original. Feels like a different device.

    Is the chin really plastic?? I would be kinda upset I ordered this morning hoping it was metal. I figured the Sim cover would be.

    The more I feel it the more I think it is steel but I can't say with 100% confidence either way. The Sim door looks the same as the rest of the device but once you get it off the back of it is clearly plastic.

    I do have the original. This one feels much nicer because of the keys as noted above. The extra width seems like it doesn't add too much to the experience but the extra chin provides more comfort while typing.

    Is that due to PST in BC?
