If the battery winds up being 2500mah, I think it will be just barely big enough. That said, I'll deal with whatever battery is in it as long as its at least over 2000mah. *drool*

I think droid incredible x sounds better, but droid DNA is pretty sick too

Very good contender vs the Note II and Nexus 4.

The branding up top doesn't bother me one bit.

I wonder why they keep saying 2? I'm pretty sure it's 3. I just would like to know what's the reason? Is it possible it's really 2?

If this thing rings in at 199 on contract it's a steal, but the only thing bogging it down will be that paltry battery and Sense. Google initiative can't start soon enough, OEM UI screw up powerhouse phones the likes of these.

It has an S-LCD 2 display . The HTC J Butterfly has the LCD 3. I may be incorrect, but this is based off an article.

Why Verizon always gets better HTC phones than unlocked ?
When we have the Sensation XE , they have the Rezound with better screen .
Now we have the One X+ , they have the DNA with faster CPU , more ram , way better screen and better design .

I wouldn't go as fas as to say the DNA has better design.
IMO the organic shape of the One X(+) has no competition ;)

I know, it makes me sad. I don't know why, but it seems like HTC has a lot of loyalty to Verizon in the States.

Verizon always offers the best possible during the Holiday Season but
during the rest of the year everybody seems to turn around and talk trash about Verizon's line-up. they'll do it again once CES rolls past, just watch them.

Their line up wasn't really bad at all if you don't compare it to AT&T
You can have razr M , razr HD , razr maxx , incredible LTE , rezound , iPhone 5 , iPhone 4S , galaxy nexus , galaxy S3 and some windows phone .
But no Sony
Btw is the old droid razr still available for purchase ?

yeah, i think Verizon's line-up is one of the best, if not THE best out there.

yeah, it is but i would advise just going to swappa.com or craigslist or something and just get one outright because they're going cheap, cheap, cheap right now.

Oh yeah Verizon and Android don't mix . If I have an unlocked phone or on Tmobile AT&T even sprint I will buy android . But hell no on Verizon . Slow updates , loads of bloat and locked bootloaders . Worst of all it runs on CDMA network and I can't use my unlocked phone on there or my phone can't be unlocked after the contract period over

whatever floats your boat but i'm sitting over here with a rooted Droid Razr MAXX HD with all the bloat frozen, it's running Android 4.1.1 and it supports HSPA+ should i want to use it on a GSM carrier. the battery lasts a heavy user like me (Navigation, streaming music via Spotify, Youtube, Facebook, texting, lots of stuff) a day and a half easy, i have a total of 64GB of storage, it's got the most reliable radios in the game, it's the most well constructed phone i've ever felt with the iPhone 5 coming in 2nd and i was able to save my unlimited data with it and on top of it all it's running on the largest LTE Network in the world by a very, very large margin. $179.99 on Amazon. ;)

Good for you !
Comparing between carriers in the us is hard because they all sucks anyway .
You need the extra battery ? Causes think the one on the normal razr hd is big enough
However the new razrs wasn't as sexy as the original droid razr ! Thinner , more beautiful back !

when i use an upgrade i don't settle for anything but the best and the only thing that i like about the regular HD variant is that there's a white version. tbh i really don't like how it starts thinning out like halfway down the phone. i like the MAXX's completely flat back and it's barely thicker.
you really should get some hands-on time with one of these before you pass off judgement. i had a white Droid Razr and i loved it but i was able to get it replaced for a white Droid Razr M, i used it for a couple of weeks then gave it to my mom and bought the MAXX HD and the looks grew on me after holding it and using it, probably mostly due to it's fantastic construction.

Unfortunenatly i dont live in the USA and Motos are hard to get here .
We all have our preference i like the thinning back of the regular .
The front on the new HD looks cleaner the the back wasnt as good looking as the original .
How's the RAZR M ? I really like the front though
But in 2012 Motorola's new back design is ugly , its okay as long as you buy a case so you dont have to look at it .
I think i may prefer the Black Droid razr more , the white one looks kinda awkward :(
