The physical home button on samsung devices are actually kinda slow compared with touch buttons or on screen ones

Specs lookin' good so far. Now lets see about the battery and the other features that will distinguish this phone from the other Android phones.

in what paragraph of the post did you read that statement. we can only wish. in the end only Samsung and LG will support micro sd expansion.

Why not? That resolution is beast! That is like asking why get the Shelby Cobra Mustang when the V6 has 305 hp in it. The 305 hp is nice, but the Cobra is BEAST!=)

the nexus has 2100 vs 2050 mAh of DNA and the DNA have 1080p resolution so you should have an idea of the battery life. the have the same processor BTW.

No SD card slot and battery looks really small to power a 1080p 5” screen with lte...

Spec list shows microSD card support dude.

I stand corrected. www.androidauthority.com 's spec list is wrong, or phonearena is wrong. One lists a microSD card slot, one doesn't.....

45. taz89 (Posts: 2014; Member since: 03 May 2011)


Yep they the only listing SD card slot where else everywhere else it says no SD card slot which is a shame...more concerned about battery really ...for example the optimus g which has the exact same spec minus 1080p screen just gets through a day so I have a feeling that the DNA which not only has a larger 5" Screen but also has too push twice as many pixels will struggle...2020mah is really small...

I was holding out hope it would have support for a microSD car, but it appears that is wrong...... I can live with the battery and possibly the storage, but it is a major letdown.....

if this phone came out before the Note II then it could hold its own BUT I dont think that it can compete with the note II right now. this could be a gift or curse for HTC because of the issues theyve had with their phones over the last couple of years.

Im surprised that the DNA is a verizon exclusive......which it shouldnt be because of the lessons learned from the debacle that came with the AT&T-iPhone fiasco lol

THIS is the Htc many of us know and love! That is some SERIOUS hardware in this beast of a smartphone :o my S3 is absolutely humbled.

Two things though, whats with the small 2020mAh batt and paltry 16GB mem limit!??? Totally kills an otherwise powerhouse of a smartphone!
