    You guys really make me want to develop a DLNA server in a thumb drive. 50GB of stuff... I use about 100GB of online "cloud" storage via dropbox, my personal websites, and Google's various services. I couldn't imagine going back to relying on an SD Card(especially since mine have fried so easily)
    Around here, however, we don't look backwards for very long.
    We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things,
    because we're curious...and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.

    Out of the box, there is even a section in the 'storage' menu for 'usb storage'

    My rezound works flawlessly as well. And yes, the DNA was free.... BUT the battery screen shots I posted here, and on my thread here: are me using the phone with wifi, without wifi, and one run through using a bit of both...

    Yes, I love this phone but facts are facts, I am completely impressed with this phone's battery life. It isn't as good as the 2750 I had in my rezound but that thing was a BRICK! LOL

    I was one of lucky ones. We were given the phones to help generate some buzz. For me I would feel funny saying anything bad about the phone, luckily, there are not too many negatives - the biggest negative to me is storage space (you may actually need to manage it).

    The battery life (coming from a rezound) is outstanding, truly amazing.The battery size has a lot of people concerned, and, given HTC's track record, they are skeptical. I would be too, if I didn't have one in hand. The rated standby time and usage times for the DNA are quite a bit better than the rezound.

    Honestly, if you are happy with the rezound, I would keep it. I know I would have kept mine. My plan was to wait until my upgrade was up, and then, evaluate all of the current models to see if there was something significantly better. The DNA comes really close (either more internal memory, or a SD card slot and, it would have been really terrific). The DNA is much more energy efficient than the rezound, and, I think we can look forward to more phones that are more energy efficient. If you were not in the mode to immediately upgrade, I would wait. There is always something better coming. But, if you are looking in the near futue, I think the DNA deserves top consideration.

    Phone Scoop touts this thing as the current top dog amongst all phones and coming just short of saying that it will save HTC... Note about battery life is the reviewer tried to kill it in a day and was unsuccessful, but take it with a grain of salt. And made only minor mention of the storage space being small.

    I believe it. A battery that size is not going to last long if you're doing anything 'smart' with the smartphone.

    I think the recent settlement with Apple is what will save HTC. Now they can create without being sued.

    Re-looking at this I think the only thing that would bother me is the size. My Rezound can fit inside my wife's Spectrums screen and its screen is 4.5" vs 4.3" on the Rezound so you can see how a seemingly small size difference is actually quite large. Holding hers I find it a big phone and about as large as I would go and the DNA at 5" might be way to big. Be like talking on a tablet to my head. But this is just my preferences as I could live with the memory and battery.

    Isn't that why they sell Bluetooth devices to keep from holding a phone to your ear? It cracks me up when folks talk about how will they hold such phones to there ear when talking on there phone.

    I had this discussion somewhere around here already. I though 4.3 would be my top too, but got used to the 4.8 real quick, and five isn't that far off

    Bluetooth ear pieces aren't for everyone. I still chuckle a bit when I see a yuppy 'talking to himself' as it appears.

Its certainly a phone that requires a trip to the battery charger at least once, possibly even twice, during the day to make it to the evening.

    I seriously don't see how that DNA battery is ever going to compare to that of the Razr Maxx, and this review says the same thing. I get that the technology is improved, but the DNA battery is closer to the Rezound battery than the Maxx battery. If there was not a Maxx living in my house, I would not believe it's ability. It's incredible.

    Are you still on unlimited? I can't afford to buy my next phones outright. Hence why i'll be forced to a limited data plan in Jan. Hence why size of device or sd card is better for me

    Call me when the 64gb version comes out, or a version with an sd slot, otherwise this thing is a big failure by HTC. I was really looking for a winner from HTC too - but they seem to be really short sighted lately...

    Why does AT&T get a One X+ with 64gb and Verizion gets 16gb for the DNA?

    And other places are saying it has great battery life. Better than gs3.

    I'm not saying it does or does not, but I am saying that until we get some in the hands or real world users we will not know. The screen tech is far to new to know for sure what kinds of effects it will have on battery.
