    Copy and paste from the above-mentioned forum:

    Okay let me see if I got this straight, Verizon took the HTC Butterfly and limited it to only 16gb(11gb to user) of storage and took away the micro sd card slot, then passed on the LG Optimus G, then passed on the Nexus 4. So now they are gonna pass on the Sony Xperia Z, and to top everuthing off Sprint, T-Mobile, and AT&T are all getting the phone of the year quite possibly the smartphone of the decade! And once again Verizon IS GOING TO PASS ON THIS PHONE????????? What is wrong with you? Now if you are planning on having htc add an sd slot and maybe a 2800mah battery to it and release it 2 weeks later, then great! But if you flat out pass on this your making a HUGE mistake!

    Pretty much sums it up!

    Branding on phones is irrelevant to me. I normally put a skin or case on my phone anyways which normally covers the obtrusive brand. I buy a phone to use it, for its functionality, not to stare at it and be offended by a company making their mark on a device that is on their network. The DNA was a big Verizon/HTC collaboration therefore the branding is deserved. As for the note two, they sale home button covers (http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00AFD...idcentral00-20) if it offends you that much.

Who cares what happens to the DNA market if it means more customers buying a new phone. That is, unless that sticks Verizon with 50,000 DNA's they can't sell because the HTC One is better and the same price.
    The dna was Verizon's flagship for the year 2012. But with such a late release, they haven't reached the sales that they had hoped. Jumping on board with another HTC device so early in the year that would contend with their flagship HTC device (also exclusively branded DROID, making it an exclusive Verizon expierence) would completely undermine the effort and marketing exspenses put into it. The DNA would continue to sell, of course, if reduced to 99 or less, but would no longer contend as a flagship, nor would their DROID line have that extra exclusive boost to Verizon customers if they can purchase a 1080p device that isn't exclusively Verizon branded. They are competing with other crossline devices like Samsung's, iPhone's, etc. I see an updated version of this phone hitting Verizon later in the year as a DROID device and DNA upgrade.

    Sorry I snapped. That hit the right nerve at the wrong time. I apologize. Back on topic, Verizon doesn't deserve a phone this awesome. They would cripple it being recognition...

    I'd hope they don't keep the 5" screen. I want this phone released just as HTC is making it for everyone else.

    And I apologize for the typo, I'm normally very on top of my grammar. As for Verizon, I haven't had them long enough to know about any issues.

    What is continually surprising to me (but then again, not) is the lack of any knowledge out there about anything regarding this phone.
    Even Sprint, where I stopped in to possibly begin my move there, had no clue as to what the phone is.
    I talked to HTC a few times. I had one knowledgeable person, but there were some there who just found out about it. The one HTC guy who knew something, said that he's not allowed to share what he knows, but that he can't see Verizon completely passing on this, and having it made with their red accents, etc..but wouldn't go deeper. (Will it be released in honesty?, when? Sd card?)
    I don't know who to believe, because NOBODY in that industry knows a damn thing! It's downright scary! I'm really glad this place is here... and I want the phone the way it is now, not a Verizon-dictated version, unless it's suped up!
    Now, Phil...seriously, tell us what you know!!!! Toss us a bone!

    I don't think the manufacturer brand is the problem, but the carrier branding. I think of it like a Honda emblem is nice but that big ugly David McDavid emblem is not cool and has to go. Unfortunately the carriers have much more stranglehold on these phones and you can't remove them.

    Exactly. It'd be like complaining about the dealer tag on the back of my prius. I didn't not buy it because it was there.

    I think once again it will be overshadowed by the s4 and whatever moto/google make. Nothing really about this phone that make me miss it not coming to Verizon.

    Well, there are many of us who want this on Verizon. Whether they're overshadowed or not is not the point. The point is giving the consumer what is wanted by a vast majority of us.

    I agree and it sucks how we consumers are at the mercy of carriers in the US

    I wouldnt call the DNA that....lol, but just for the dual speakers alone.....I would pick the One over the DNA if I had a choice. Unlimited data and service keeps me with Verizon. I need to check my data usage. If its a certain amount over the past 6 months.....I might be a lil closer to leaving Verizon for AT&T. Or at least giving AT&T a test drive.

    I gotta say I have been loving my Rezound but its upgrade time soon and the wife really wants my Rezound in place of her Incredible.. Like everyone else here I am having the same dilemna. I like the DNA but storage is lacking and the new One specs are just awesome. I don't understand why they have to be so proprietary with their devices (especially HTC). And because the One is going to 3 top carriers the likelihood that accessories will be mass produced by various companies is huge (i.e. iPhone), hence Verizon could make even more money by selling accessories as there would be more for the choosing for such a widespread device.


    That said, I love Verizons service and I have been with them since they took over Alltel here in NC. I have only had HTC phones with Verizon and I would like to continue that tradition but things are looking bleak in the HTC world around here..

    I don't know what the fuss is about on the DNA. I just got it and I love it! I went from a Rezound with 16gb internal 64 micro SD to the DNA and I am doing fine. Though I am still on unlimited, I moved all my music to Google Play with about 2.06GB of music locally just in case I am not around any wifi, 5GB of Pictures and Videos of which 2.3GB are movies I have loaded for travel purposes. The pictures are sync'd via DropBox. With apps and all I have 2GB of free space. To me that is fine. Granted I used to just install app after app just to have but, realized I was not using them. All the extra space I had on my Rezound I was not using. Unfortunately I took the OTA and will have to wait to root until there is a exploit to remove Verizon bloatware. Again I love the phone over the current crop of Verizon devices, and as for everyone to each there own.

    Google Play and Dropbox require data usage when not on WiFi. Not everyone has unlimited data, luckily I do, for now that is.. Much cheaper for us to have the extra storage space to eliminate the hassle of data overage charges.. unless that is their overall evil plan. I love the DNA from what I've seen and read, I just want the latest and greatest HTC has to offer. The One is that offer for some. :o(

    Ha. Uhm. Obviously you've never used a DNA. Obviously you have no idea that the DNA is likely what the One would have ended up as if HTC wasn't so desperate to include different features.
