    I so wanted the DNA. I have had the original Incredible. Then the bolt and now the Rezound. But NO SD card is a deal breaker for me. I am very torn between the S3 and the Note 2. I like them both a lot and yes they may cost more but what they do ....well worth it. I have small hands but honestly I didn't feel the note2 to be too big to handle. Such a gorgeous screen. Crisp and clear. The stylus is so cool. What this phone does is so cool and being the tech older person I am and use my phone's capabilities its a tough choice this time. My brother just got the S3 and lives it. He told me he thought I would be partial to the Note2... He knows me well. But I use my phone for music too. I don't care about movies. They both have my interest. Am glad i have time ...march. but I think it will be the note. Definitely white.

If I'm in a 3g area I wouldn't be able to do that on the GN2 where I could on my T-bolt, MAXX HD, or DNA. So that is a REAL STEP BACK in capability that I wouldn't have to make on the MAXX HD.
    The bells & whistles on the GN2 are capabilities that I have never had so not really a step BACK.
    That is the practical business person in me speaking.
    The other side of me wants to step forward and get the new bells & whistles.
    Thanks for the comment.

    FIRST: NEVER TRUST VERIZON!
    now...
    I too am a first day TBOLT owner. I have had the same conversation with myself and I thought of it in a different way finally.
    Where did I go wrong with the TBOLT?
    A. I Bought it day 1
    B. I needed a phone and this was the first 4g phone and I neeeded a new phone (I waited 4 months for this one).
    My TBOLT wasn't as touchy as some peoples and due to circumstances beyond my coordination I now have a brand new TBOLT from Best Buy. I now, within the last 2 weeks finally get some 4G at home, thanks Big Red, Ha!. Glad I bought a flagship 4G phone almost 2 years ago for that.
    My point being that nothing seems much better than what I already have. Everyone's raving about the N2 above so that alone has to make it a consideration, Im a note taker with a fat thumb so I will give it a look. Otherwise Im for waiting. I rushed into a phone because I had to, right now I don't have to, I want to. My only real complaint about the OS is that there were big changes from Gingerbread to ICS and the current versions of many of the apps don't work on GB. Most of my apps are 6 months to a year old so that they continue to work. I would never buy another phone that wasn't on the current OS. I have a fast phone with a great screen that my aging eyes can see. I have a 1700mA mytouch4G battery that fits with the original back and gives just the missing amount needed. In addition I can actually get and receive calls. And did I mention my new replacement phone has a new clean unpeeled kickstand HAHAHAHA! Don't hate me because you are jealous of my new kickstand

    Went from a Tbolt to the 32gig S3 and love the phone. The GNote2 now has my interest. Fascinated by that pen magic. The DNA is also very nice. However, 16gig isn't going to cut it. For either the GNote2 or the DNA. I'm forced to wait until 32 or 64gig models are offered. Removable vs non-removable battery is not my issue. I am normally around some type of charger, car, work or home. For remote power, I use external batteries. The ones I had for my TBolt are now used on the S3.

    I examined the DNA at a VZW store today. Very beautiful and very tempting. Absolutely gorgeous phone, screen and top notch performance. But, there's that storage issue. Told the lady if it had 32gig we'd be doing a deal. And the S3 will be passed to a daughter to replace another TBolt.

    So, on the sidelines waiting for the storage increase.

    Verizon gimped this phone by insisting on the removal of the SD card slot that was on the J Butterfly. They want more overage charges, simple as that.

    That's not quite technically true. True, Verizon gimped it by not including the SD card. However, it was never there in the first place - the Butterfly ADDED it to Verizon's non-SD design. Symantics, I know - Verizon didn't remove it, they just excluded it from the start.

I use Lightflow and by looking at my phone, I know immediately what the alert was for....

    I like the specs and look of the DNA. I like the larger screen of the Note 2, but it is so freakin huge!! I cannot see myself putting that monster by my ear to make/receive phone calls. I am also not thrilled with Samsung's build quality. The Razr has such a great battery, great build quality (gorilla glass/etc.) and it has a huge LED RGB light that it is on the top of my list - but the screen isn't as nice and I honestly think the phone is plain....ARARGGGHGHGH!!!

    I am a big phone tech guy - and want others to chime in with their thoughts. I am buying one of the three this weekend....I have literally changed my mind 7 times already! Help!!!
    What's wrong with Samsung's build quality?

    The Galaxy S3 is built very well

    how do you know that? your belief goes against the process as we have known it for 2 decades. it also makes no sense that vzw would "design" the phone then let an identical version w/ sd card float around other world wide carriers! i dont believe that for a second.

    1987 was my first cell phone. As big as a home phone back then. So don't say these phones are huge. Lol. I have small hands. I like the Note2 and can't wait till march to have it. Everything this phone does....awesome!

    After using the DNA for 1 week, I am now on the fence of returning it and get the note 2. The none removable battery or no SD card did not bother me all that much, sure they are nice to have but I can live without it. However it's the battery life and how limited I feel when using DNA, today I achieved 14 hours off charger and still had over 60% of the battery but that is by turning off every possible sync and feature that came with the phone and with light use. It's too much work to just make sure my phone doesn't die before the day ends. DNA is such a beautiful device, it feels great in hand and it's the perfect size for me but I am not sure that is enough to make me a happy camper. I have 1 more week to return my DNA and I honestly not sure what to do, especially after all the cases and whatnot I already got for DNA.

    We've gone over this in many threads already. Reps from Verizon and HTC have discussed how this phone came to be (it was in a cnet article from a couple weeks ago). Basically, Verizon approached HTC and had a significant role in designing the phone. Part way through there was an opportunity for HTC to provide a similar phone for kddi which Verizon authorized because they were not in competing markets. The J Butterfly added the SD card to the existing Verizon design.

    I'm in the same boat. I like the sharpness of the screen but thinking of returning it and getting a note 2. Bumed about about the storage. I put all my apps on and 5 gigs of offline spotify playlists and I was left with 2 gigs free. The screen is noticeably less sharp on the note 2 but I feel like because of the size, the spen and software its something different where as the DNA seems like a regular smartphone.

    I am heading over to the store this morning when it opens - I am going to look very hard at both phones, however, at age 48, the more real estate on the note will most likely end up being too much to pass up. I am on my email at work all day - cranking away....that will probably be the deal maker. I want to figure out a way to buy the DNA though....might end up doing it when I get to the store...lol....

    You went 14 hours and still had 60% battery left. In theory you could go 24 hours and still have 20% left, with your current setup. I think you ought to just set it you like you would like, and, see if the DNA will meet your needs. If you bought your cases at Verizon, they will likely take them back.

    Myself, I have my DNA setup they way I like, and, I don't need to stress about battery life. It can go down to 30%, and, unlike my rezound, that 30% can go a lot longer.

    this will always be the deciding factor for me as well. this is the major reason i just cant pull the trigger on the DNA, as bad as i want too. i feel bad even wanting a new phone as my maxx to this day, is just flat out perfect. the techy in me wants the newest gear. i definitely want a bigger screen, love the 1080p, all the other specs are so perfect. but..... i freaking abuse my phone! gps on all day long, bluetooth on all day, wifi on most of day even though it is only used probably 10% of the time, all my stuff syncing all day long, dropbox camera uploads, 3 different gmail accounts, etc. i stream music at least 2 hours a day, and another biggy, tethering, i tether all day long in the field. this, for my busy, hectic, lifestyle, just isnt going to cut it. if the Note2 has decent reception, i will get it. i think carrying around an extra battery pack in the truck is an acceptable tradeoff, or i could be surprised by the life of the Notes 3100mah battery. one thing i have noticed is that reception plays a big role in battery life. i think that is another area where the maxx really excels. i wish a rumor would drop about a moto 5" quad core maxx phone!!!!! just dont think i can wait.

    There are a few articles out on the web that had interviews from both HTC and Verizon ceos. They said that this phone was a joint venture from the get go. Google it if you'd like.

    good to know! still very surprising! especially given the rumor of a worldwide release as the DLX.

    Well you have nearly the same posting and grammar style as edizzle, i.e lack of caps at the beginning of sentences, excessive use of exclamation points, etc. You registered only a day after edizzle was banned, and have a propensity to be a little stand offish (going off other threads). So it seems just a tiny bit suspect
