    The first one I got had these problems in a kinda pronounced way, so I exchanged it (at a different store, actually) and the guy there opened up a number of boxes for me and they all had slight flaws to one degree or another. Don't get me wrong, I like the phone, but the build isn't quite at the level that it should be imo, especially since the materials are so nice.
    I see. Thanks. I plan to put a silicone gel case on it anyway so no big deal.

    The S3 for me was a little too big and felt plasticky. I prefer the form factor of the Maxx HD and I think it's just a much better looking phone and felt more solidly built. Of course it's subjective. Plus I read that the radios on the S3 are not as good. A phone is only as good as the signal.

    I plan on buying the DNA from best buy. I am going to see if it gets me through the day for a week or two. If it doesn't then I will get the note 2

    I would recommend that you wait until the 27th and then have Best Buy price match the Amazon price (program is suspended until then) , you'll likely save a nice amount of cash. Many people have saved money doing this for the razr maxx HD, although just to be safe I should say YMMV.

    I hope you get the chance to use a DNA, I think it might change your opinions. I know it changed my opinion. And, it should be noted, that I did not claim the DNA is much more efficient than the newer Samsung, Motorola or Apple phones. I only claimed it was for efficient than the 1st gen LTE devices.

    I started this morning at 6:30 pst with 36% battery, with normal usage, including downloading a 128 mb update for Reign of Amira, I am down to 21% battery. In about 3:30 I used 15% battery, this includes about 10 minutes in an area of poor LTE coverage. This is real world usage, ymmv.

    At 19% (light usage) right now, and, I just plugged in one of these to test - https://www.verizonwireless.com/b2c/...nitialPhoneId=

    my power pack was charged up in August, but, all of the little leds were on, so, I will give it a test.

    just noticed, the phone stopped charging. it got up to a 51% charge. The power pack is drained, in about 1:40 and, it only boosted my battery from 19% to 50%. I may need a bigger charger.

    95% charged now, using an AC charger. In one hour and 20 minutes, the charge on my phone went from 50% to 95%. My lazy math says, it would take about 3 hours to fully charge the batttery. In case someone is interested in how long it takes to charge up a DNA.

    You will lose 30% of the charge from the battery charger due to inefficiencies. So if you have a 2100 mAh battery pack, you won't get more than 1470 mAh charge from it. To fully charge a 2020 mAh battery, you will need a 2900 mAh battery pack.

    FYI, the battery life on DNA is just a tad better than Verizon version of Samsung Galaxy S3. If you're fine with SIII battery life, you'll be just fine with DNA.

    It takes some selective use of reviews to arrive at that conclusion.

    I posted from the post from "whatwhat" who said " Wow, four straight posts. No edit button on your DNA?"

    Nothing serious. Just my usual useless drivel. Sorry.
