Yes. It's a great little phone. As a moderately heavy user, with all options on and no stamina-modes, it still manages 2 days (still 30% after >6 hours of screen time), a coworker who only uses it for chat and mail manages to recharge every 4 days.
I read somewhere that the glass isn't maybe as good as Gorilla glass, so I went for a thin case + screen protector. I would have taken the latter anyway since I hate reflective screens.
