The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 destroys the DNA in everything except for the screen. The Samsung Galaxy Note 2's score of 10/10 in Performance is excellent and I've tested it myself and everything was buttery smooth. The UI has no lag whatsoever, web browsing is smooth and there are no bugs.
The software on the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is also great and the camera is excellent, probably one of the best I've seen on a smartphone.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 scored 9/10 for battery life which is one of the best I've seen on a Verge review.
Now onto the DNA...
The performance of the DNA is quite disappointing at only 7/10. You would have hoped HTC to do better but they always lag behind in terms of performance, lag and bugs.
The battery life is terrible on the DNA. 4/10 for battery life... that's like the first time I've seen a 4/10 for battery life in a Verge review.
That's literally a fail.
