I am holding out until feb when HTC usually make their announcement of what phones are coming out, hoping the rumours of the HTC Deluxe (our possible version of the butterfly/DNA) are true as the DNA looks like a fantastic phone from what I've seen of it.
To the OP, Sense is not a heavy UI.. it does exactly what you need it to by giving you integration when you need it. I think 211275's post is a fantastic explanation of the reasons for getting the DNA... just wish I could!
I went into a T mobile store and looked at the Note 2 before buying the DNA. The only reason was because of storage differences. I think I could deal with the size but it just seems so cheap. Maybe it's because I've always had HTC's.
That being said tho I might still buy a Note 2 to play with.
