    Hey there! Thanks for joining Android Central!

    So, yeah, the DNA's fairly new (came out, what, in November?). And, yes. We're expecting HTC to announce it's new "flagship" in February. But that doesn't mean it'll be available anywhere right away, and specifically on Verizon.

    The DNA's still a really good phone. (See our review on on it.) And there's always something better coming, ya know?

    The DNA is to Verizon as the M7 will be to HTC. Meaning the DNA is Verizon's flagship...not HTC's.

    The M7 will more than likely see a global release in numerous countries and carriers which may or may not include Verizon. Nothing is confirmed yet so if you're happy with the DNA then you shouldn't worry, it's still an awesome phone.

    EDIT: Beaten by Phil.

    Or if you're that worried about it you're still in your return Window so you can return the DNA and wait for the m7 to maybe come (probably won't happen) to Verizon.

    Before you worry about your next HTC phone, you may want to consider this:

    Is HTC getting ready to crack down on Sense-based ROMs? - ROMs - RootzWiki - RootzNews - RootzWiki

    Not sure I can support the company if they really do proceed with this.

    Sense is their proprietary work. If you don't have a license to redistribute it, I don't blame HTC at all for protecting their rights.

    Hardly the OEM's flagship if only available from one source.

    As all have said the DNA is a vZ exclusive, HTC can not swim in one fishbowl to compete with Apple/Samsung plus the host of others. So Kudos for them getting their devices out to other carriers for by having more devices we can hope it helps improve their software and support. That all said Component wise any phone in the first half of '13 will be hard pressed to beat the specs of the dna, Snapdragon4pro is a leader and their next gen prob won't be out till end of year (as well as enyos (sp) and others) so hang in there you got a great device that can hang in for the next few years...

    Sense is HTC's and it is not open source. It would be like someone distributing windows without microsofts permission.

    They may also be trying to get developers to stick to stock android roms instead. (Which is better, IMO)

    whhhaaaattttt??? I can't see VZW wanting to bring the M7 in after they spent all the time and money to make the DNA happen (since it was a collab between them and HTC). But i guess we will see.

    We don't know. It'll probably get one or two updates, but don't have expectations of it happening often if at all. Verizon's update process is rather...lengthy and arduous.

    Be happy with the software you have now.

    It'll get 4.2 and the new sense, but may not get anything after that.

    Who knows for sure though, because HTC has been doing some uncharacteristic things when it comes to software updates. (Like updating sense itself, which it rarely did in the past)

    Could this have something to do with HTC's cross-licensing deal with Apple?

    Every reader of this thread should scrap their Android, Apple, and Windows phones at the end of this month and get the soon to be released BlackBerry 10. RIM invented the smartphone and needs as much support as we can give them. Yes, apps are limited at the moment, but the phone will be great, and app availability will increase as we all shift away from Android, iOS, and Windows phones.

    And they did such a dam fine job that they have been abandoned by anyone that truly wants a good smartphone.

    I don't care what kind of phone you have, that's not how I judge someone's worth or intelligence.

    I actually hope they fail lol but that's just me. Most rumors I've seen seem to say that Verizon will get the M7 which makes sense if HTC is trying to get more brand awareness. The DNA just came out because Verizon had HTC design a phone for them. HTC designed the M7 on their own so they probably don't care too much about the DNA also being on Verizon. Remember the Bionic and the RAZR on Verizon? They don't have a problem replacing phones quickly.

    I hope they succeed actually. Forcing Google & manufacturers to compete & give us more updates or more for our money would be sweet!

    I don't want anyone to fail. If they fail, it means less competition.
