    Default battery life

    gsmarena is saying it's going to be a 2,020 mAh battery. That's the first I've heard that rumor - I heard 2,500 mAh before. 2,020 mAh seems like it wouldn't cut it for powering 5-inch 1080p screen.

    I've heard all of those. To me, it sounds like HTC put a good combination of hardware in it to where the battery life would be pretty good.

    phonearena, on the other hand, cites the 2500 number: New rendering of the HTC DROID DNA gets hearts pounding

    I'm not sure where these sites are getting their respective info.

    It's the little things like this as to why Samsung is pounding HTC right now, they just don't seem to get it. They have the worst battery life out of most Android phones, if not all, yet they refuse to include bigger batteries. Motorola learned with the Razor, and Samsung learned by putting a 3100 mah battery in the note 2. And they're talking about a 2100 mah battery with a 5 inch screen..with their software that already has bad battery life as is. Good grief they must not want to be competitive anymore.

    2020 is what the J Butterfly has, right? Methinks they're just copying specs line for line there. I expect 2500, don't think I'll be disappointed.

    Honestly as long as the battery can last me 8-12 hours I will be happy! Right now I am lucky to get 4-8 with the Droid Razr even after I rooted it and loaded up a custom JB rom (which about doubled the life of the battery from 3-4 hours to 4-8 hours.). Most of the software on HTC phones I thought could be almost all the way hidden and put out of the way (Apex launcher, PowerAmp music player, etc)?

    non removable battery=major fail!!!! good luck to those that choose to buy it. i simply cannot believe HTC, of all manufacturers, would put a non removable battery in place. they have historically had the worst battery life of any manufacture. looking at their financials, this is the last hoorah, seems like they could have at least matched the maxx. it makes no sense. (pun) 8 hours is a joke! 12 hours is somewhat acceptable, but i think it is a dream to think that it will get that.

    I believe even with a custom launcher all the sense service still run in the background, not unless your able to disable them like on the nexus.

    HTC is quickly becoming a joke among the big manufacturers. I doubt LG would be dumb enough to put in 2100-2500 mAh battery in a 5 incher. This phone was destined to be better then the Note 2, but the combo of a weak battery and less optimization for the bigger screen (like the Note 2 has), It'll be a joke. Not to mention I wont come to many other Carriers.

    HTC has gone down the drain. Not only sticking terrible batteries in phones but making them non-removable... HTCs build quality is what i llove but... there making some big design mistakes like Battery life...

    Wow. All the hyperbole here, jeez. Maybe, just maybe, we should actually SEE how much battery life this phone gets before complaining about it? Just a thought ...

    That's interesting since LG in the past years had lagged significantly... just shows things always change.. and as end users we hope for the better

    Dumb question....since I'm still rocking the OG DINC and never had a phone with a non-removable battery. What happens when the battery won't hold a charge any more? Can it be replaced? I'm already on the third battery for my DINC.

    The review for the new OneX was just posted. The main complaint was battery life. Disappointing :/

    I get about 2.5 hrs on screen on my note with the 2500mah battery. That's about 1/3 of the time on wifi. If I am all on hspa+ I get about 2 hours of screen on time. I hope this battery is at least a 3000mah or else battery life won't be that great

    OMG that is terrible.

    Debating whether to wait for a review of the DNA or to Pre-order. It has everything I want except a replaceable battery. Glad I heard about it b4 I ordered the Note II.... Though that is the one advantage it has over the DNA --- but the screen on the DNA is the thing that will probably make me get it.

    Unless some other leaks come out, I guess we won't know for sure if it will have 2500mah or 2020mah. Either way, I would like to see more, or just make the back cover removable (not going to happen I know).

    Its about the same screen on time I've gotten with my last couple androids which were the gnex,razr, and GS2. I could get around 2-3 hours on screen with auto brightness and on 3g the whole time

    I like 4g but not married to it. And I don't mind toggling it. How would the battery life be iF it was just running on 3G instead of lte? Would that make it much better because the galaxy nexus on 3G still had horrible battery life.

    Not sure if this helps you but on the gs3, switching to 3g doesn't save battery from my personal experience

    YES, Being a owner of a Tbolt that has LTE I find turning it off and running 3x save alot of battery, when in LTE mode (within signal) it uses more
    Since we have battery issues with tbolts I rarely run LTE

    Well, this phone has a second generation LTE modem - the MDM9615 qualcomm chip -- which has less power draw than first gen chipsets like in the thunderbolt.

    Sure, but all other things are not equal between the DNA and the thunderbolt, i.e. screen resolution, battery, processor, etc. So we will have to wait and see. But I suspect when compared to the Thunderbolt and its measly 1400 mAh battery, the DNA should be a decent improvement.
