    Some folks are such bandwagon fans. Give yourself 3-4 months from now and those same people will be jumping all over the S4 no loyalty these days. The S4 will be the device to wait for.

    I would imagine at the very best battery life would be almost the same as the nexus 4 but probably worse. Same hardware but bigger screen + smaller battery= no juice. On Phil's review of the n4 he said anywhere from 3-5 screen on time with the nexus. Which is about average for me over my past couple android phones maybe a little bit better. Usually get about 2.5-3hrs on 3g and upwards of 4 hours on wifi.

    It will be better because of one very important thing: HTC can include aggressive power management software that cannot be included on the nexus.

    As one that has had an Android phone since day one and the OG Droid, I have NEVER had an Android phone that didn't require a batter pull ever so often to get it going again. Even with the GS3, they are required ever so often. The fact that the DNA doesn't have a removable battery scares the you know what out of me. Not to mention the lack of SD card. I love my GS3 and have my eye on the Note 2, but the rumors of a new 440+ ppi Sammy device coming in 2013 has also peaked my interest. So with NO upgrades in hand, it makes my decision very easy. Don't get the DNA.

    3 to 4 months? As much as I'm loving my VZW S3 and VZW GN right now, I'm jumping on the VZW Note 2 as soon as it arrives later this month!
    Oh, and sign me up for the S4 as well.

    I've read that the battery life of the dna isn't as good as the s3 and neither is the loudness of the speaker so if that's an issue for people keep that in mind. I will look at it in a Verizon store, I was considering it but with these factors as well as my personal preference its looking most likely a no.

    Multiple reviews have said the battery life is better than the S3. The only site that said it was bad was the verge, and their review is clearly an outlier.

    I am on my 2nd GS3 .the first one went loopy on me.. as crazy as a betsey bug so carried it back to wally world traded in my pebble blue for the pearl white , I love the GS3 but hate that contract.. i started off as unlimited and should still be on unlimited but Verizon changed the game.. I still think a class acrion law suit would help us at least grandfather in. oh well ,life goes on.. the GS3 so far to meis the fastest ph and cpu out there within its specs. I believe the @ GB of RAM was a good idea but i miss my droid charge, darned thing was built to last exactly 2 years.. the usb reciving end got so loose i had to run it down to get it charged.. This GS3 has no HDMI nothing no where except the small usb hub at btm. at least someone got smart there. I've heard there was a plugin for the GS3 thatt will allow the HDMI etc connection. as far as speed goes.. its faster thani am so its fast enough. I want that cable that allows HDMI or maybe even coax etc. wason phone and someone tried to call me and the phone shut my GS3 off.. welp It appears we are all in the GS3 family now..

    I will overlook the lack of MicroSD slot, if HTC releases a 32GB or 64GB version.
    Until wifi becomes available on ALL commercial airliners, I cannot understand why
    companies like Google keep trying to push us to the cloud. I fly almost 90,000
    miles a year and mostly on TATL & TPAC flights. No data connection means no
    access to the cloud.

    Devices with built in batteries have a way to reset the phone as if the battery was pulled so that would not be an issue. If your device gets stuck you are able to reset it.

    That plus with service providers now with limited data plans does the cloud really make sense to use? With providers f'n over it's users with these plans internal storage should be a large part of the selling points to these devices. People know they have these crappy data plans know so the least amount of data they need to use to access their media the better.

    I probably need to enroll in some kind of support group or therapy... I just realized that I almost
    never sell my old smartphones when I buy new ones. They just keep piling up....The only smartphone
    that I ever sold/traded-in was the HTC Rezound. Off the top of my head, my drawer has almost 10
    old smartphones.(examples: iPhone 3, Droid Charge, VZW Samsung Fascinate, Blackberry, Galaxy SII,
    and a couple of Windows smartphones) This doesn't even include all the analog dumbphones and brickphones
    that I have in the basement. They date all the back to BellAtlanticMobile(which became Verizon)

    Got my S3 on launch date as soon as Verizon opened. Had many Android phones and all the latest and greatest. In my opinion the S3 is best Android phone I have ever had and I mean the best. I recently sold my GNEX and almost had withdrawal symptoms but my S3 is great and I even bought my wife on in October on her birthday. She is not much into phones but I can tell she loves this one and she had a Razr. Not trading and to all the phone junkie or as my wife calls me a phone *****. I feel your pain.
