Rated 5 out of 5Â by dvaldrums Now THIS is Excellence!
I was very nerveous about making the switch from iOS to Android and another Phone. But now I can say that this phone has met and exceded my expectancy with a phone. It's amazing and the performance is great! The design is unique and head turning. Other than my hand being a bit small for the width of this phone, I have no complaints AT ALL. The other problem is not with the phone but with Verizon (the only carrier for this phone), I hate the fact that Verizon doesn't let all the features android and this phone could be able to do/use.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Arizona1221 Switched from Samsung Galaxy Nexus to DNA
Wow, what a difference. I bought the Galaxy Nexus July 2012 and thought I had the best phone out there. While it is a good phone, the DNA blows it away. When I received the phone for Christmas 2012, the first thing I noticed was the difference in build quality. The DNA didn't have that cheap plastic feeling like the Nexus. The DNA has a very nice weight to it and I love the soft back, very easy to grip. The beautiful HD screen on the DNA offers superior color and the size makes it very easy to read on. The speed of the DNA is unrivaled. I would recommend this phone to anyone out there. Great job HTC.

I was in love with my phone until the SIM card would fail and cause me to lose service. There were no bars and no call, text, etc would go through. HTC please fix this glitch so I can brag about my phone again ;(

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Ronmock HTC Sync and HTC Sync Manager
My previous phone that I still have is the "Thunderbolt" Since it has a feature in the "Setings" menue to "Connect to Computer" it will work with HTC Sync just fine. However, the DNA does not have this option. HTC Sync will not recognize it as being connected. Another program is "HTC Sync Manager". This program does not recognize the phone either. The program will start and pull in music. videos, and photos but will not recognize the phone is connected. A "pop-up" will appear, instructing that the phone has to be "unlocked" before it can connect. The phone IS unlocked but HTC Sync Manager does not see it. HTC Sync will not see it, either.
The HTC Sync programs are not usable with the Droid DNA. My Thunderbolt works with HTC Sync, only because there is a "connect to computer using USB" feature in the "Settings" menu.

Rated 5 out of 5 Great Phone! Screen otherwise
This is great phone I love it! The battery life is great I get 1 full day and maybe even more. The 5 inch display is amazing. On the down side the Gorilla Glass 2 is not so great. I dropped my phone for the first time and it was scratched and the glass has shattered it is not a pretty sight. The screen toughness should have been better that every phone, I watched a Iphone 5 drop test and it managed to pull it better off than this phone. Now Im off to get a Defender series case because the Commuter didnt cut it.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by SteveJobs000 best htc phone ever used
was previously using a motorola droid 2 before getting this phone. after obtaining the droid dna i was pleased and overjoyed with my choice of smartphone. the motion while swiping between home screens and doing some lite emulator gaming are no match for the quad core beast at the heart of this phone. almost no lag at all between applications. the camera is spectacular. pictures are crystal clear and vibrant thanks in part to the georgus display. the beats audio portion is ok but i really wish HTC would look at other manufactures like Grado Laboratories, Klipsch or even Sennheiser for thier audio processors. beats is more of a gimmick. all in all this phone is lovely and one of the best on the market next to the one. i would challenge any note 2 or iphone 5 to go toe to toe with this phone and see what the best of quality and reliability can accomplish with out a bunch of tacky commercials and hype.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by kholloway Fix the SIM card issue and it would be perfect!
I like almost everything about this phone, but the SIM card is beyond annoying and causes real problems when it says there is no SIM card and I don't have service.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by HoosierEsq Worst phone I have ever owned
Please make sure to search online regarding the frequent sim card errors with this phone. I first purchased the phone in February and over the past 4 months I have received 4 new sim cards and a new refurbished phone. Even with these "fixes" I will frequently lose service 5-10 times /day. This issue makes it impossible to enjoy what may otherwise be a great phone.

The Droid DNA is beautiful. I'm really big on cell phone technology and the specifications wont be outdated by my next upgrade. That's all I really care about.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by dannyxc1128 Decent Phone
I did love this phone , till it started to overheat like really bad where it was really uncomfortable to hold it. Then it suddenly started to not turn on , had to plug it in. Then the screen started to die and there was a blue spot that you could only notice here and there. Then the phone not sending text messages. Yeah its an alright phone , i still regret buying it. But its still decently good

I've had this phone for probably about.....6 months. Its a Great Phone. I got this phone after 2 year of having a samsung droid charge. This is much better. Better battery, better screen, more stable and much better reception on 4G. The wiFi antenna seems a little weak but it gets the job done. I use it heavily and the battery still surprises me for how long it last. I prefer it over my wife's Samsung S3 also. Can't go wrong with this one.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by George264 Best phone I've ever owned.
I've had the DNA for months now and just thought of writing a review to help anyone out there looking to buy this phone. This phone is by far the best phone I've ever owned. Just about every feature on the phone hits perfect for me. The 5" screen is huge and beautiful, it has 1080p so it's really sharp, you can't even see the pixels! It's fast, it's smooth, it has the one of the latest Android Jelly Bean and it's awesome. Probably the only thing I can complain about with this phone is that the battery on this phone just hits a day. It's fine, but I would have wanted it to last to 2 days. That said, it is expected with a quad core inside and a 5 inch screen. It's also really thin, so they really couldn't have put a bigger battery inside.
This is definitely a buy, it's big, it's thin, it looks good, has so much power inside, it's probably the best phone I've ever bought.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by DocsLeiLani50 Best Phone I have ever had!
I have been using my HTC Droid DNA for quite awhile now. I so love my phone. Long battery life, fast processor so apps load fast and smoothly. Accessing the internet is great and watching HD video's are AWESOME!!!! I also love that when going into the app settings I can "disable" a app that I am not using instead of needing to do a force close. Taking pictures is very fun and my favorite is using Panorama, HTC has made it so easy to use so there are not any miss alignments for Panoramic Pictures. This phone is light, thin, beautiful and powerful. Beats Audio is wonderful when listening to music with headphones. The Gorilla Glass is still in brand new condition and I am tough with my phone. I am female so it gets thrown into my purse and off I go. It has no scratches at all. I do not use a Phone Case as I love the red that is down the sides and don't want to cover that up. If you are considering a upgrade go get the HTC Droid DNA.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Tmoore Not Impressed with the incredibly tough CorningÂ® GorillaÂ® Glass
I've worked for one of the big 4 cell providers for many years and have always been an advocate of HTC, after using a very large handful of different phones, its no question that HTC does a great job designing their devices and will continue to be a leader in the market place. My review of this device is not the internal quality but rather the external. I have had the HTC DNA for about a week now and my screen has completely shattered, it simply fell off my lap getting out of the car and cracked the screen in 5 different directions. The troubling part is that the phone is brand new, no scratches, to wear, and yet impact to the top corner in just the wrong manner could completely destroy the screen. I thought his was a very heavy duty tempered glass. Very disappointed on this one. I do have insurance coverage however, this will likely change how I promote HTC in the future as I have been told this wouldn't be a manufacturing defect. I beg to differ, as I have seen the type of impact gorilla glass can handle.

This is one of, if not the best phone I have bought. The size is perfect, and the screen is absolutely beautiful. If I could change one thing it would be to increase the storage to 32GB.

This Phone does everything, I love it! The only things I wish were different are if it had a slightly bigger battery and expandable storage 16 gb isn't enough unless you use cloud storage. If you want to get a phone that is future proof spec wise you should get this one.
-Amazingly bright crisp screen
-Super Fast Processor
-Beautiful Design (love the Red accents)
-Battery could be better
-only comes with 16gb no expandable storage

have had this phone now for 6 months and it looks as great as the day I took it out of the box. Left ATT to verizon soley for this phone and do not regret it one bit. You definitely want to invest in a good case to protect this powerhouse; so what are features that really set it apart? screen- is still the best out there, the camera is incredible, sound with beat audio and its fast with the jellybean

Rated 1 out of 5Â by lucy1990 Love the phone, but there are serious software issues
I have had this phone for 6 months. At first, I had the SIM card issue. You can google it and you will find a description, it's widely known. I got a new SIM card and the issue went away. Now, there is a software issue. The phone sporadically decides to launch apps (particularly an audio program) and drop calls. It has moments (sometimes for an hour) where it acts like it's ADD. Rebooting the phone does nothing, it just keeps launching apps, closing them, making calls, hanging up. It's a shame because it's a great phone, but it's of no use if it's not usable as a phone. I debated between this and the Galaxy. I felt this was a better phone and I liked the camera on it, which is the second most common function I use on a phone. Unfortunately, I think this was a mistake.

GREAT phone. Size, fast, looks, etc.... This phone at least lets me "disable" the blotware from running, cant un-install it but at least you can turn it off. D/L Android Assistant and let it kill programs. I get up to 2 days battery life max with an average of 1 day and 12hrs battery life.
