Screw apple

Posted on: July 12th, 2013 by Garrett Taylor

I recently switched to Verizon and was set on buying an iphone 5 because at the time i had a iphone 4s on ATT. After spending a few days looking at reviews and specs on other verizon phones i became crazy about the droid DNA and a few days later i owned it. This phone is amazing everything about it screams high tech, im young so speed is very very very important, and this thing knocks my 4s out of the water as well as the iphone 5 ! Another reason to get this phone, the price ! i got mine on verizons web site for 50$ instead of paying 200$ for a base iphone 5. I could go on and on and on about how great this phone is but im just gonna talk about one more thing. The battery ! this phone has a amazing battery! im someone who uses my phone to search the web, txting, and some simpsons tapped out ;P and this phone delivers ! i get around 22 -23 hours off a full charge ! its amazing the standby time is outstanding, htc is very good like that. If your are up for an upgrading or switching to verizon i highly recommend this phone ! its going to cost less then half of other smart phones on the market and its just as fast if not faster then alot of phones that cost more ! the only reason you should spend more for a phone is if your looking at and s4 then by all means but if your not then this is the phone for you i promise you will love it ... the only downside good luck finding a good looking case, but with the way this phone looks your not going to want it in a case !

Great phone that could be better.

Posted on: June 13th, 2013 by Ken Q Allen Goss

I came from Sprint's EVO 45 LTE; to Verizon Droid DNA, which was great on the network side. There a few defiance even though they are both made by HTC. And I'm not talking about the hardware. Verizon has chosen to limit the software that help make an HTC device stand out, like peeps, friend-stream and other app that I know have to hunt for 3rd-Party app to do. I hope scene five will change all that. I also hate that I'm limited with 16GB, I wish there was a spot for a mirco-sd card.

Great Phone

Posted on: June 6th, 2013 by Robert Manser

The DNA has decent battery life with great call quality. The screen is flawless with no lag on the software. Overall I give the DNA a 4.9 because battery life could be better. And there should be expandable storage, but no bother because of drop box type of integration.

A brilliant display in a slim attractive package

Posted on: May 27th, 2013 by Paul Pekala

the display can't be matched and it is great for games and videos. It is also very fast and have not experienced any lag. My only problem so far is the glass on the screen seems to be soft and scratches easily so I recommend a screen protector right away.

on the top with the best

Posted on: May 15th, 2013 by Prasath Prabhakaran

I am going to start by saying that i've used a ton of phones in the past. Its something more of an hobby for me to switch phones and see what sticks better. I've used an iPhone, Droids and WP8's. I've never been more pleased with another phone than this one, its just on top. Right now i don't find anything rivaling it, maybe the HTC one, but i still haven't used it yet(hasn't launched here), so lets leave the one out of contention. The build of this phone is just prime, its just made out with the best to make you look the best. The hitch for me is the battery, it could've been a little larger considering this is a 5inch phone. But the 5inch 1080p 440ppi screen of this phone kills everything that stands near it, the note 2 was put to shame considering this. Also the way that the s4 pro handled the 1080p was incredible, it just screams you would be hard pressed to find any lag anywhere. The other place it scores top of the competition is in durability, i've dropped my phone like 5 times now and couple of times on the tarmac and yet i don't see a ding anywhere on the body, i wonder how did they accomplish such a feat. So considering how solid this phone seems and looks, you would be hard pressed to think of another device that could stand toe with it. Now if only this had a 3500mah battery, it would have lasted a week for me. So go ahead and get this without a thought and you won't be disappointed and btw the battery lasted a day and half for me, but i would have loved it last even more considering how immersive the experience on the device was.
