There's no way any carrier or company would release a phone that had 4hrs of battery life in this day in age... Just you wait before judging

I can deal with only 16GB of hard drive memory, but with such a large display at such a high resolution, HTC fails again time and time again when it comes to battery life. Samsung realized this when they first thought of the Note 2, which has a 5.5 inch 720p display but packs a massive 3100 mAh battery. HTC really thinks that 2020 mAh is good enough for such a beast? I have to charge my SGS3 3 times a day with heavy use as it is!

2020mAh battery, no expandable storage and non-removable battery? Why does HTC keep on shooting themselves in the foot with the new phones they have been releasing lately? They need to go back to 2010-2011 when they were relevant and rediscover what made them successful. The original EVO was an awesome phone, they should have kept building on that instead of trying to get too fancy! I get the specs are on par and even exceed the Samsung Galaxy line but some of these features are make or break for a large chunk of consumers.

Very well stated. For me, a removable battery and SD card slot are essential. 1080p screen? Cool, my eyes aren't good enough to distinguish that from a 720p screen, so it's just a nice feature rather than an essential one. LTE, NFC, etc? Those are pretty much standard now. I think I'd rather go with a Note 2 for $100 more and actually get my money's worth.

H-Voice? Is it crap like S Voice?
I have a Galaxy S3 and i just dislike S Voice

Google Now is where it's at!

its a good looking phone! i want one!!

but this is still underpowered!

this is an android phone, so it need android standards!!!

lol to that no memory card slot, 2020mAh battery!

for goodness sake, its a 1080p phone! do you think the 2020mAh battery will save it for a day? NO!

so even i hate samsung phones, samsung galaxy note 2 is still the best android phone!

Big display, fast processor= puny battery life.

A 3.7-4.3 inch screen is good enough, and a dual core 1.2 ghz is good enough too. (S4 snapdragon)

As much potential as the HTC DROID DNA may have, I find myself questioning HTC's decision to go with a 2020mAh battery.
