azuza001's review of the HTC Droid DNA

original version, submitted Feb 16, 2013, 2:33 PM:

An amazing phone

I have had this phone for a few days now, but have played with quite a few of them in the last few months. This thing is an amazing HTC phone, one of the best I've ever played with on any carrier.

Pros : This thing has a beautiful screen. Its just amazing compared to say the Razr or a Galaxy III in the daylight. It's amazingly fast and holds a signal very well. One thing that I've not seen anyone mention yet is that the thing is FACTORY UNLOCKED on the SIM. I took an AT&T sim, put it in, changed the APN and it switched right over to AT&T's HSPA+ network. When I see everyone saying they prefer the Note II I say I love a phone thats coming from the carrier unlocked for ANY carrier. Plus the ability to easily unlock the bootloader thanks to HTC's support, this thing is a dream for anyone who loves to play with roms. And when your not using the phone this thing sips power, it sat on the table for 3 hours and only lost 5% power while doing nothing. Thats nice.

Cons : I understand that the phone is supposed to be water resistant and thats why it has the usb flap on the port but seriously it's a bit of a pain. It wouldn't be as big a deal if it came with the wireless charging pad but thats a separate purchase so yea. If your a heavy user your going to want to keep an external battery charger handy for the battery. The issue isn't as bad as the thunderbolts battery but it still could be better.

Other : People complain about the 16 gigs not being enough, and I can understand that. But I do have to point out with so many free server storage options out there like dropbox and box it's more of an inconvenience to me than a con but others may disagree.
