HTC keep Buking around us and we will turn it in to blackbarry lolz.... It seems like HTC is playing some sick game of "Guess the Missing Feature". All of the latest phones from HTC has some feature that are just dead WRONG!!!

Thank you, that's the only part that has me 'dreaming'. Besides, that display is going to wreak havoc on that battery; HAVOC, I TELL YOU, HAVOC!!

No, only when you put an iMagniFying glass to the display; otherwise, the naked eye really can't tell.

Dead iTroll : in a Apple iArticle it's actually okay to do that . But on a HTC android phone article , really ? Besides adding i in front of anything won't make anything better , that's why apple their maps Apple Maps instead of iMaps , it's map don't deserve an i .

How coulDi be remiss, of course their 'Maps' don't deserve an "i", an "F -" would be more appropriate.

S4 Pro + Adreno 320? Then there is the display, although I expect there will be those who question the need for that kind of resolution on a phone. Just don't be surprised if the display becomes the standard for 2013 flagship phones.

IMO, the real problem for HTC is the BATTERY.

One additional item regarding the new display - there may be 'issues' with the new resolution and non-compatible apps.... With earlier apps migrating from the Droid X to (for example) the HTC EVO 3D, apps that hadn't been updated for the improved resolution (even in 2D mode) of the EVO were quite tiny when displayed on the EVO.

Just download tablet optimised apps for it , that would work ,
But thats one of the reason why i dislike android tabs , apps sometimes appear tiny in a black box and no way to enlarge it like in the iPad .

they didnt mention how crappy the battery life will be for this phone!! AND why did they say that this is a "geek's dream" when other phones like the S3 and Note II are better than the DNA right now lol

How in the world is the GSIII better than this phone?

While the DNA does have amazing specs, I would personally still pick the note 2 or gs3 because of no touchwiz. And I can guarantee you the DNA will have a locked boot loader, Verizon tends to like their phones like that like their gs3.

Why do we have to suffer because you couldn't buy an iPad?

Oh I have an iPad sitting in a drawer collecting dust right now. Got bored of it because I couldn't mod it like I can my kindle fire haha. Probably going to sell it soon to get a nexus 7 with hspa+.
