"Great Phone!"on by Camo2640
Pros 5" screen
4.1 jelly bean
supper fast with the quad core processor
much better radio then what my Thunderbolt had
faster 4G speeds (do to better radio)
very very smooth
Cons no removable battery
not really a con, but 16 gigs for this particular phone is a little iffy with it being able to shoot 1080P video.
Summary What more can i say about this phone? Its just amazing, super fast and gets the job done. most complain about the battery life but for me i think its great coming from my HTC thunderbolt with 12 hour battery with no use at all. to this with moderate to slight heavy use and getting almost 12 hours is much better for me. I like the fact that its much slimmer and light weight but yet very durable. even with a otterbox defender case and zagg screen protector to replace the annoying otterbox built in protector, it still is easy to take in and out of pocket. and much better improvement on otterbox's part by making it fit in the holster much better as i tend to put in in my pocket or the holster. the memory on the other hand is iffy. 16 gigs formatted to 11 gigs usable isnt very much when it comes to shooting video. for me its not a big deal since i mainly have music and pictures more then anything on my phones. but for some this may not be the phone for you if you like to do a lot more video. the speeds of this phone on the network are amazing. much faster then my thunderbolt was on 4G and even on wifi the phone responds a lot quicker. the GPS as others have said locks on in a snap where as my Thunderbolt couldn't quiet lock the position very well. i kind of wish the charging port was on the side verses the bottom of the phone with the annoying flap. and it would have been nice if otterbox would have included a charging cover on the case like they have in the past on there other phone cases. but all around this phone is great and i would recommend this phone to anyone.
Pros Awesome speed, awesome screen, apps open effortlessly,great speakerphone and beats audio, works great with Bluetooth headphones, Great battery life, wireless charging is awesome Consolidating apps into folders is a cool feature as well
Cons 1. screen is a little too big for my fingers to make it all the way across when pulling down the notification bar or opening some apps on opposite side of screen
2. usb charger might be better placed somewhere other than the bottom of the phone
Summary Awesome phone!
Awesome speed, awesome screen, apps open effortlessly, rarely crashes apps (usually a developer issue anyways) great speakerphone and beats audio, works great with Bluetooth headphones Motorola SD-10 at the gym and Jabra Talk earpiece everywhere else. Great battery life, wireless charging is awesome (I use an Anker Qi enable single pad) Consolidating apps into folders is a cool feature as well. Sturdy metal construction and gorilla glass (still have hard shell case and screen protector just in case...

Pros Small footprint (even in a Otterbox case)
Large clear HD screen
Battery life very good
Cons No external storage
Summary A great phone all around . Runs every app I throw at it blazinly fast and easily gets through a 12 hr shift with battery to spare .
Pros -Snapdragon S4 1.5Ghz Processor- Fast AF
-2GB of RAM- OMG
-Smooth as butter while navigating, loading apps, websites
-1920X1080p screen w/ pixel density of 440 ppi- INSANE
-Looks so badass, feels very solid in hand. Almost hard rubber like.
Cons -Battery life is not great, but better than I thought. Can go average of 2-3 days with moderate usage.
-No expandable storage. 16GB internal = only 11GB usable. Major factor for some.
Summary I love this phone. If you have a chance to pick this bad boy up on Verizon do it. However, I would strongly advice you check out T-Mobile's deals. I learned this phone was unlocked and bought it off ebay for a tidy sum so we wouldn't have to pay 200 bucks a month for a couple smartphones. I am paying 30 bucks for my phone monthly from T-Mobile's service. I get unlimited texts, unlimited data with 5GB 4G data, and 100 mins. Its a great deal; however the only problem is that the DNA doesn't currently support T-Mobile's older 4G band. After talking to a representative, he said they will be upgrading their towers to a faster more reliable 4G service in the weeks to come. In the meantime, I am stuck on EDGE, GPRS and slow networks. BTW contrary to what people say, i was still able to load up the cnet page and browse contently with pictures taking a few seconds to load. Its not that bad, but 4G.... I cant wait.What phone did you just review? The DNA is not known for its memory... but is known for customization because its an Android.
PS- Suck it iphone 5.
