    Bigger, sexier, infinitely better display, great camera, fast (quad core with 2gigs ram), and android is just awesome.

    Why do you think you want to switch? No one can even begin to try and "convince you" without knowing what is disappointing you about the iPhone. Ultimately you have access to the same information as everyone else, unless there is specific question about the DNA you haven't found the answer for that someone might be able to answer if asked, then you have all the information to make your decision.

    First of all the battery life is as good or better. You also get a great customization experience and you also get the new google now which by the way is awesome. You also get a great camera, bigger screen not to mention higher quality. You also get a sleek looking device and you also get widgets. Just with these things it's already a better phone. You also get wireless charging and I think hd voice if I'm not mistaken. Either way the phone is great.

    It's very simple - Android is better then Apple so knowing that = DNA > Iphone5.

    In a nutshell, I'm bored with the iOS experience, as it hasn't really changed much in five years. It still looks virtually the same as it did in 2007.

    I love the Apple ecosystem, but I don't really need my phone to be linked thereto for any real reason. I have an Apple TV, iMac, Macbook Air, and iPad Mini that are all perfectly integrated. My phone doesn't really need to be a part of that, per se.

    Basically, I'm just looking for something new and exciting to play around with.

    Sounds like Android would fit you perfectly if your looking for a little change of pace. There's just so much you can do with your Android phone to change the look and feel of your phone from different widgets to launchers. You have a 14 day window to return the phone to Verizon so just give it a try I'm sure you'll like it.

    The screen and processor alone should be incentive enough.


    My DNA makes my friends iPhone 5 look sluggish.

    Pretty simple, your iPhone 5 just caught up with the Thunderbolt that I bought 2 years ago. Maybe in 2 years the iPhone 8 will have the technology that the DNA has today. I love the NFC and the wireless charging, the big screen and the fact that my phone doesn't look like every other phone out there. The biggest for me is not dealing with iTunes.

    Check out this article from CNET someone shared in another thread.

    I think you'll find it quite interesting.

    I agree. The main word with the DNA is sexy. Of course, add that sexiness with her grunt and what more can you really ask for?

    I sell Android phones/tablets at wholesale prices, but as per the rules and regulations of the forum, I cannot post external links. Send me a PM if you guys are interested in the DNA

    Well, I took the plunge. I bought the Droid DNA. Wish me luck. It seems pretty awesome so far and I know I haven't even begun to explore it.

    I hate threads that start out with 'convince me.' Go to store and try the DNA out. Period.

    Congrats!

    My 14 year old son has an iPhone, and loves it.

    Me? I just don't see the attraction of the iPhone!

    Let us know how you like the DNA. I'm really enjoying mine, after about 4-5 weeks.

    Agreed, there's a trend where usually the people that need convincing are the ones who end up with buyers remorse. Let's hope this one is different!

    My friend has an IPhone 5 and I have to say the look of the screen is a big diff. The DNA screen is by far the best I've seen on a phone. If you look at the money and time you will spend to download music and apps. That the would make me go to the DNA. I've had it for 4 weeks and have had 0 issues with it. If your afraid of bad battery life DON'T. Battery life in a 4 core Android phone is great. I could go two days if need be with this phone. By the easy the IPhone is for old people. That's why I have an Android to feel younger than I am.lol

    To OP. be sure to get back and post your initial impressions coming from years of iOS. Be interested to hear your sense of what's better, not so great, etc. I think you made a great choice. Did you consider the Note 2 or was that not even on the radar?

    First impressions after playing around for just a brief while:

    -very fast...like woah...
    -excellent build quality, although power button could be a little more pronounced and I don't dig the USB cover
    -screen size is amazing, but it's less bright than the iPhone 5 and has weaker viewing angles

    Lots more to see and do before I make any final analysis. I also have to turn off iMessage on my home computer so that I can receive text messages from my friends with iPhones, i.e. most of my friends...

    Rip the usb cover off lol. Thats the first thing i did when I got mine. And you can turn off autobrightness and crank it up and its just as bright as the iphones haha.

    One thing I like better is being able to use my data while on the phone. Many times I am on the phone with a client and need to refer to their information on Google Drive.

    I switched from an iPhone 5 ..first to an SG3 and then to the DNA.
    Trust me, just playing with the DNA at the store was the most fun I've had with a phone in 4 years. ..I was with apple for the last 4 years.
