    Thanks. I was hitting power then volume instead of pressing them at the same time.

    Thanks to all on the screenshot stuff! I thought it took special software, rooting, or an act of Congress!

    My battery life continues to be great with the DNA for my normal day to day use. I rarely get to 60% after 12 hours off the charger. I did notice one thing today that does eat the battery pretty aggressively. I had to navigate to a destination today, and decided to use Google Maps for turn-by-turn. I navigated for less than a half hour and lost just over 10% of my battery. This is probably the only reason I need to leave my charging cable in the car anymore. With my old Thunderbolt (I know...I know...), the car charger got used daily.

    Coming from the Tbolt, I got into the habit of putting it on the charger when I got in the car, when I got to the office, when I got home or pretty much any other place I could find a charger. I've actually found myself having to resist the urge to put my DNA on a charger now. That being said I took it off the charger at 7:30 AM have managed my emails from it as I've been in meetings most of the day, played some words/scramble with friends, uploaded some pics to Facebook took two half hour conference calls, browsed the internet, searched for houses on the Realtor app and streamed some music and am still at 50%. My Tbolt would have been drained by 1 PM.

    10% battery for 30mins of navigation is pretty damn good. that's like getting almost 5 hours of navigation with a full charge.

    I'm on day 2 with this phone. I'm coming from a Galaxy Nexus with an extended OEM battery. The battery life is SO MUCH BETTER on the DNA...I'm actually shocked how good it is. Sure, it can't touch the Note 2 or the MAXX, but for what it is, this phone is extremely efficient. I'm a pretty heavy user and I'm having no problem lasting through the day.

    exactly. My nav test turned out the same result. roughly 5 hours of nav w/ full battery.
