That little emoticon about sums up how I feel about the battery life of this phone. It basically sucks.
Five hours if you're lucky with normal use. Which for me is two gmail accounts set to push. Bout 50 or so texts. Moderate web/social network usage 10 minutes for ever hour(isn't that average?)
Coulda used a few hundred more mah's in the trunk. I'll probably be returning this phone.
This phone is perfect Otherwise. Anyone else feel my pain?
It has a lot of great features and it looks beautiful. Got mine with a great plan at http://www.squidoo.com/htc-droid-dna-reviews
It's really a shame
Just based alone on the fact that this is a 16GB phone, non-removable battery, and I would be forced to use up the data that I pay for to use a cloud service, there is no way in hell I would ever even pay a single cent for this phone, which would be a money-pit.
You change those two things about this device, and it goes from the bottom of the barrel INSTANTLY to the very, very top. Above the Note II and the GS III.
This could have been *THE* flagship phone, instead, it's a tugboat.
What else would you need more than 16 Gb for really? It's clear that the carriers and manufacturers are trying to per...
I see the TuneIn radio to stream music over the network...
16 GB non-expandable storage
Otherwise, looks pretty cool. I want to look up all the specs now.
Wow the spec driven DNA! Its like getting a Cadillac with an AM radio......

I'd be so there if it was "sense-less".
I predict in the near future, phones will be as big a target for hackers as computers, if not more. When that happens, there will be a need for timely OS updates for ALL phones, whether new or old. Things like Sense get in the way and prevent fast updates, and it's going to be a big problem.
It's better for the hardware mfg's to differentiate themselves through cool hardware design, and leave the OS alone so the software folks can take care of that part.
My excitement for this phone has been quelled by what I feel are 2 MAJOR flaws:
1 - Non-Removable Battery.
2 - No External Storage (c'mon, I have a 64gb in my Rezound.)
Must admit I'm tempted, but I think I'll wait for the next train...
Literally. Computer, TV, Phone, Tablet, any of them.
