so if this is true--I'm guess my GS3 16 gig will be in the budget category after Dec 4.

Strangely enough I think I'll wait for the Note II vs DNA article to help decide. I'm buying full retail as well.

Why are you all bashing the name, guys? Droid DNA is running in its veins. It's Droid DNA!

I need the specs on this thing, if that battery is smaller than the Razr HD then we have a problem, the stock HD is running a 2500mAh battery this phone needs to have that or more to compete else battery life woes will be the bane of this phone's existence. 5' full HD screen on a less than 2500mAh battery is pure suicide.

OMG I'm so annoyed with you guys.. what are you 12 all of you ??? all i hear is aaa battery battery....have you seen any tests yet ???? does anybody have a clue about what technology is being used in that screen ? could be IGZO if so then is should be revolutionary...and since when the size of battery is that important ??? there are so many things not just battery size that make a smartphone run for long periods... (ex One X with Galaxy S3 and LG Optimus 4X HD where you have 1800 compared to 2100...or something )

any way GET A F> GRIP !!! EVERYBODY and stop bitching until we see some more details.

Most of what I read here is discussion not bitching, imo. Chill bro. There are far more important things to get worked up about lol.

Speaking for myself, I have purchased every HTC phone knowing that, while excellent phones, they are not known for battery life. I am no expert. People more knowledgeable than I have said that with the number of PPIs listed for this phone, and with what is known about battery life with the current technologies, yes it could be an issue. I cannot say they are right or wrong. Having said that, HTC's "battery life issue" hasn't seem to dissuade me or their legion of fans from buying the phones. Anyway this is guesswork, and anticipation, nothing else. We honestly do not know how the phone will perform. That's the point of all this speculation. What's the harm in that?

Same here man. I love HTC and they are my OEM of choice for the 2+ years I've been selling for Verizon. I'm so ready for this DNA that I'm almost drooling over it. As long as the battery isn't God awful, I'm sure I'll be able to deal with it.=)

Verizon is the biggest rip-off I have ever encountered. They never returned my $200.00 that I paid them for a phone I returned to them.

AT&T years ago ripped me off for far more than that so count yourself lucky it wasn't worse. They ripped me for 3x what you say Verizon did to you. Not saying it was right, but it could be worse

Can someone please get some dog-fight clips or comparissons between the DNA and the LG Optimus Blaze? And will they ever update the upcoming phone specs for this new mystery 5 inch 1080p King Smartphone? Is like to also know a definite launch date, camera specs(mp & lens), battery type, expandable memory capacity, etc. I would love to see this beast up against the Optimus Blaze and also if the Blaze or DNA are ever going to be officially announced for Verizon? You would think if they want to knock off Samsung GS3 or iPhone 5 they would get some info out early and get the whole world interested and hungry!!!!!!!! Come on guys quit holding out!
