    I travel quite a bit and would like to know if you can watch an entire movie 2+ hrs (in airplane mode) and still have battery to call a cab once on the ground.

    Battery life is very important to me and that's my main concern I do wish it would had come with more internal storage. Plenty of legit questions here.
    But I'm surprised these questions hadn't been asked, we buy a phone to be used for that the rest should be second to call quality and signal strengths. So my questions to those whom have this phone how is the signal strength, have you had dropped calls? How loud is the speaker on the phone? Living in the country I've got to have a phone with a great radio in it to get calls in and out, this is where my rezound shines . Please if someone can get into a fringe area with this phone and test it instead ad right smack in the middle of several cell towers and report on the radio signal this would be great.

    good morning Phil - so how do you rate the battery life since yesterday?

    I am curious as well about the radio. My GNEX has all sorts of issues where I either have to reboot it or put it in/out of airplane mode to get my data signal back. My TBolt always had a rock solid signal and never lost it. Also, are you able to toggle between 3G and 4G?

    So if the phone as gorilla glass, does that mean it won't scratch and won't need a screen protector??

    I know it doesn't have a stylus, but does it have any functions like the intuition or the galaxy note 1 & 2?

    Mostly Web surfing. Posting on this awesome forum. I have a few widgets but don't listen to much music on my phone. Lots of Texting, Facebook etc. Pretty normal stuff.

    Why should you have to buy another device when this phone is geared towards entertainment (Music, Photo, Video). This is going to be a serious issue for a lot of people that have grown to use their phones as their entertainment device.

    You shouldn't need one. Gorilla glass is very scratch resistant so I never use a screen protector any more. My SGS2 doesn't have a scratch after more than a year.

    Good question. How are apps and web sites scaling to the new resolution. Is the experience pleasant in terms of quality.

    Ah, ok cool. Was gonna say .. heck, even the Bolt comes with 7! ;-) Of course we can't add any to that either.

    Screenshots don't seem to work, but some people actually do use their space for a variety of purposes, usually for carrying music on the go.
    I used to think that no SD card was a deal breaker for me, but I've come to terms with it by now. With my Droid Incredible's 8GB onboard, I'm hardly using any of it.
    Every time I install games on it, I never play it, haha. It's too small to watch any real video on, and for music, I feel listening to music on the phone is a compromise at best. It's probably way better to just stream from a radio app instead. Personally, I listen to music stored on my old 120GB iPod via its line-out fed into a portable headphone amp, but that's just me. :P

    No, that's not what it means. It's supposed to help fight against minor dings. But you absolutely can still scratch Gorilla Glass.

    Currently, not apps support the new screen. In some cases, you may need the HD version - Angry Birds Space for example.

    I had a problem with swiftkey3, too, so, I am trying the default keyboard, which, is actually quite nice. The swiftkey3 keyboard disappeared, while trying to set up permissions for the Amazon App store. Switching back to the default keyboard solved the problem.

    Well....I'm have 4.59GB available on my Droid X (on the device), but only have 1GB available on my 16GB SD card (after clearing some stuff off and archiving it). So, yeah, storage options are important for me.

    This is from the cnet labs

    I was surprised by the HTC Droid DNAs battery performance, as well. Despite the phones large screen and swift performance, the handsets embedded 2,020mAh battery lasted for a long 8 hours and 43 minutes on the CNET Labs video battery drain test. By comparison, the Samsung Galaxy S3 offered an even longer 9 hours and 24 minutes on the same benchmark, whereas the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx HD kept going for an unbelievable 14 hours and 53 minutes.

    My rezound did so I would have to say that yes it does

If Apple marketing is to be believed the quality should be perceived as pretty much identical.

    Thoughts?
    I actually have both phones (iphone is for work) the iphone cannot hang with the DNA in any way

    Everything looks great, everything scales perfectly.

    Angry Birds Star Wars doesn't work though (i know, deal breaker)
