I got mine delivered today from amazon.de and i have the same problems as Layolachi. I have scratches on the side of all of the three buttons. When you look through the transparent shell (I got the purple one) you can even see a blur of glue. On the side of the recessed screen you can see the glue come out of the border. It nearly touches the screen.
The pressure point of the buttons is worse than the ID L. But after all... it's better than the rubber buttons from the old connections.
The screen is really really really bad. It's possible the worst screen I've ever seen. It's so dim and pale at the same time. The first Tamagotchi had a better screen. My Looney Tunes Giga Pet had a much better screen, because it had a build-in LED (it came out in 1997! Now we have 2014). This would improve the Tamagotchi Friends a lot and you could expect that for 30€.
I had coffee machines with a better display
The Gameplay... it's also bad. The three games I played so far are nice, although they take much more time to play. About 2-2:30 min. for one game. The ID L was 30 sec.
The thing with the jewellery is just useless. They could've also said "Play each game 20 times with each tama to finish it". They don't do anything. There aren't even items (which is really bad) or a discipline function. The park is much worse than the ID L park.
I can't see a simple improvement from the old Tamagotchis. I'd rather play with my old Music star (which was really good. the best b/w tama imo), or v4, v5 ...etc
So far... i'm waiting for my P to get delivered, i think it will cool me down
