Nice phone but many drawbacks

I recently purchased this G3 cell and it has many good and bad features. First the good, it downloads Apps within seconds, unlike my iPhone which takes several minutes to download. As an Android, it gets Apps which the iPhone cannot accept (such as Firefox and those using Java applets). The camera has a powerful 8X zoom and has lots of free memory (32 GB) plus it accepts micro SD Cards.  The LCD screen is large 5.5". The battery can be changed easily.   Now for the negative, it uses battery life very quickly; going from 90% down to 55% in just minutes. It takes a long time to charge the battery; sometimes several hours! The power button on the rear is a nuisance and even turns-on by itself when placing the cell down to rest. The screen must be set at 100% brightness, even indoors and it cannot be seen outdoors on sunny days. Some of the keys must be touched very strongly or they do not work; this causes pain in my fingers. I do like it but I am ambivalent about it as well. It is a good-looking phone and reasonably priced.
