I have had the Droid DNA for months now and I was the one who started this thread a long time ago. Now that I am used to the phone and the mediocre battery life versus my old iPhone 4, I understand that the google maps issue is not that bad. I disagree with shutting off all location services because it cuts down on getting the full experience of a neat Android phone. If you work in a field where a power outlet is not that far away, I just recommend running your phone with everything on, location settings and all, if you want to get the full android experience. Naturally, the NSA is watching everything you do, so privacy should not be a concern anymore...

Looking forward to getting the new Sense 5 update that the HTC Butterfly is currently receiving.
