Yay! Finally! I'm pretty excited about this phone. The display is killer. Wonder if it will suck battery life or if it will actually last through a day or more on a single charge.

Well if it's the same super AMOLED plus screen that the galaxy s II has it all depends on your color usage. The screen uses less power when the pixels are darker. So if you put on a black background or dark theme the screen uses less power. Pretty awesome technology. I personally want to wait for the galaxy s II with the dual core ARMv7.
