qeertyu, 22 Nov 2012HTC DNA has 5" screen, but it's volume even smaller than droid maxx which only has 4.3&qu... moreLot of money to pay just for a slight increase in the product? Not good.
4.7 inch -> 5 inch ... 0.3 inch increase? - ddpi don say .. i doubt your eyes can see past 300
quad core krait vs dual core krait -> load FB 0.005 secs faster?? for wat?
They could have given consumers soo much more !!
16gb -> 32gb (100% increase storage!! what a deal!)
2020 mah -> 3000 (5 hrs more usage time!! wat a deal!!)
So .. no good pay money to downgrade your phone. Better wait for deluxe version, or get samsung note 2 .. you get more productively done.
HTC DNA has 5" screen, but it's volume even smaller than droid maxx which only has 4.3" screen, the batteylife is also very remarkable, the hater will never see that and continue to complain. I live in korean and i can't buy any cellphone made by other country's manufacture. for one year, i didn't see any new foreign cellphones in korean market, how lucky u guys are.

You should be comparing other android devices' battery instead. Since their OS same, you would expect same draining.
Given other company release bigger batteries like motorola or samsung. HTC is losing out! Other ppl enjoying using android device, while htc users keep on looking at battery bar!
Zeake, 22 Nov 2012H. T. C. ? Never heard of em!then you're definitely never heard of apple and samsung.. ever heard of a device called "smartphone"?? htc made those things.. welcome to 2012 :):)
Anonymous, 21 Nov 2012I read the battery test and its pathetic. Note 2 has around 50% bigger battery and does around... moreIt has wireless charging. So you only need a charger at home/car/work and the battery will never ever be a problem. I wanted the note2 aswell but the insane screen and wireless charging bring this one over the line despite the lack of an sd card slot
I guess that freely copying Apple's design was a part of the deal that HTC made with Apple for paying so much money
You guys who cries like babies about the battery look at what IPhone 5 offers in terms of battery 1420 & Nokia N8 offers 1220, but no one cries about issues their facing about battery. That's a perfect phone for me. A die hard fan and user of HTC products. well done HTC
AnonD-18125, 21 Nov 2012Check the battery test of GSMArena, then coment. Its battery is more than okay. S4 Pro + andro... moreit doesnt matter, you introduce your flagship device to compete vs others and you insult your comsumers with that size battery. We all know that a 5 inch screen 440 ppi, 1080p screen will do a lot of damage to the battery life, so why put the bare minimum? samsung note 2 doesnt insult there consumers, they actually gave the biggest they can give, so why not HTC?
It's only for USA or I can buy it and use on another gsm worldwide ????
I would say it has an impressive set of hardware and there will be external batteries or juicepacks. But the DNA isn't cheap at all when you buy it tied to Verizon (or any carrier for that matter).
The gorgeus screen, nice camera and nice internals are all pure win. The battery life and CDMA frequency are huge turn offs though.
Anonymous, 21 Nov 20122020 mah battery on a 5 inch, only a fool would purchase this phone.Check the battery test of GSMArena, then coment. Its battery is more than okay. S4 Pro + android now consume les battery! Wew!
