Well, this is not the same Whitemagic lcd display in Xperia P. It's Whitemagic IPS NEO with Bravia Engine 2. IPS NEO is the newest IPS technology, newer than Super LCD 3

From the leaked photos of Yuga it looks like the display of Yuga is good, probably IPS, very good viewing angles (finally Sony), so its strange if they destroyed a potentially great display with white magic.

IPS plus Bravia Engine is gonna be greatest ever, even on the mediocre LED backlit LCD of my old Xperia Pro the bravia engine made magic.

HTC you should have released the DROID DNA+ instead. With bigger battery and bigger memory. Why release it after 3 months? You are so f*cking predictable.

You have too much free time on your hands, when you finish your high-school, move out of your parents house and encounter real adult life you will understand what I am talking about, noob.

On the other hand, HTC stands for High Tech Computer.

I guess they think that means they are not in phone business, they are in computer business, so they expect users to run their "phones" from the wall socket most of the time, and the battery is only for carrying the turned-on phone around from one wall socket to the other.

This phone didn't impress me! Someone would think ' ouh, we have a bad-ass over here', but wait for explanation. Lets see, compare it with Note 2. They are almost same power, Note 2 is one with much bigger battery, much MUCH more functionality that can be realized on bigger screen. S-pen is another story. Those are only big ones, and, as it stands right now, it will be cheaper than Htc's Dna. It is Note 2 for me, and I am a FAN of htc, but I am not insane, to trade under powered 1080p (which I can't defer over 720p) not smartly used 5'' screen over 3100 mah bat in GN2, functionality that is so well combined with big screen. etc etc.. Build quality is better on Htc, but by small margin.

droid dna :

design - build quality - less Weight - display - slightly better camera - better size(for me) - linkpack better slightly - Best UI

Note 2 :

s pen - SD card sotarage - better internal memory - better battery - S voice

Couldn't understand HTC.

5 inch 1080p screen with 2100 battery and only capacitive, no S-Pen support so no digitizer layer!

No chance, Note 2 is the king of phablets!
