    Well I liked the fact they show the five phones together for size comparison and color tint but I thought the pixel comparison a little cheesy. They say the note 2 is the worst in comparison but i have played with the note 2 and like the screen.

    I don't think I've seen this asked in the thread yet...how's the haptic feedback and overall vibration? Is it weak or strong?

    BTW, this thread has convinced me to cancel my Nexus 4 order and pre-order the DNA. I know I'm giving up the stock Android experience and software upgradeablity, but I have my Nexus 7 for that.

    How about reading apps like iReader and Kindle?

    How is the text? As good as a paperback novel?

    Would someone kindly test the DNA dB signal strength (actual numbers) side-by-side with other phones, e.g. GS3, Razor, etc.?

    I currently have a DInc2 and signal strength is not the best.

    I want to know if the DNA has Friend Stream?

    I have never had an HTC phone before but when I used play around with my brothers Incredible I liked Friend Stream so much. So much so that I made an account and my first post asking about it.

    In regards to the battery, it seems like people (and I included myself in this group, initially) are a little too fixated on a number. Specifically, 2020. It seems small for a device of this size, and perhaps it is compared to other large phones. But it's just a single number. The iPhone 5's battery is less than 1500mAh according to iFixit, and yet my wife's Verizon iPhone 5 has robust battery life. Several posters who have the DNA have said the battery life is actually pretty good. If this spec had never been listed, and all we had to go on were real-world battery usage reports and impressions, would we even care that the battery is "only" 2020mAh?

    Perhaps it's time to stop fixating on specs and focus on performance before busting out the pitchforks and torches. With that said, both and have already posted reviews. CNET said the battery life was great, PA said it was average for Verizon LTE phones. At the least it's not terrible, and at best it's pretty awesome. So Phil, now that you've had the phone for a few days, any impressions on battery life or will we have to wait for the full review? My pitchfork is calling to me...

    I am ok with getting 8 hours out of the phone with moderate use. My concern is with the battery lifespan. After a hundred charges/discharges how much life can we expect out of this battery? I don't want to sign a 2 year contract and have the phone a year later with 2 hours of battery life. Like I mentioned before, I am on my third HTC replaceable battery now. What do people with embedded batteries do besides simply upgrading the phone? I have asked around and most tell me they just suffer with poor battery life until they are eligible for an upgrade. Is this a legitimate concern or am I missing something?

    Does all the Amazon stuff fundamentally change how you use the phone?

    This.I was as guilty as anyone. You know what they say when u assume.Haha. Im so fricking excited to buy this phone. Battery was my only question. As long as it wasnt terrible i was gonna buy it. It actually seems like its average or a little bit better than average.

    Don't underestimate non-removable batteries. My iPhone 4 from a year and half ago that I gave to a relative is still just as good as it was when I bought it. It outlasts my S3 and the S3's battery is amazing. Additionally, my brother works at Verizon, and he says that with unibody (non-removable) phones, if anything were to go wrong with your phone, the warranty covers it and you just get an entirely new phone; which I am okay with.

    I don't know, I've had two Blackberries and my current Droid X for two years each, and battery life never seemed to change on any of them.

    I appreciate the info. I would be surprised on getting a new phone though. Carriers like to send you slightly beat up refurbished models.

    You don't get a new phone after 14 days with Verizon. They send out a factory as new phone once you pass that 14 day return period. I'm unsure how it works if you buy one off contract though, when the warranty and all applies to new vs factory as new. The gripe I have is setting these things up every time you do an exchange and good lord just think if you have call tech support and there holy grail answer is to do a factory reset since there will be no battery pulls to reset the phone.
    I've been very fortunate with my rezound not one issue no calls into tech support. This has been the best android phone I've ever owned.

    Do we know if this thing is water proof like the J Butterfly? Was thinking that was the reason for the USB flap.

    Just thought I would throw these tests in there for those who have been asking for a comparison between the Nexus4 and the DNA... but obviously take that as you will.
