bugsy8946's review of the HTC Droid DNA

original version, submitted Feb 6, 2013, 8:37 AM:

Almost Perfect

I have had this phone since November 2012 when it came out. I have had no problems with it.
The lack of removable memory might be an issue for those who fly a lot, otherwise I don't think that it is. Obviously, Verizon had HTC make the phone without removable memory to promote the use of streaming services (hopefully for them Verizon's own streaming services). The phone works great with the cloud and 4G LTE. It is screaming fast and you can hardly tell the difference between loading and viewing a movie from internal memorey and streaming it from the cloud. If you use Wi-FI it won't it even cost you any data to stream it, although Verizon's 4G LTE network is faster than some 802.11 WI-FI networks.
The disadvantage to the lack of removable memory is that 11GB is not really a lot of room for movies for use on an airplane flight. Although GoGo In-Flight Wi-Fi is available on many flights now, I have had no experience using it to stream media.
