Notsure HTC Droid DNA is DOA

Man, I just gotta post this because i have never seen such a dumb idea.

Screen - This is a great screen and i would put it in the top 3 or 4 for screen clarity. HTC OneX would be 1st.

Size - I actually like the size it really doesn't feel like a large phone.

HOWEVER, My likes end there. Here is why....

STORAGE: BAD BAD BAD
It comes with 16gigs of internal storage. THATS ALL. The funny thing is that it really doesn't. After the bloat boat they put on it you get 10.7gigs which is barely enough for a light user or my 65 year old mother who thinks smarts phones are not the way to go. THERE IS NO SD SLOT AT ALL. NONE ..... unless you want to lug around an external drive. Yeah, who's gonna do that.

BATTERY: Average and some non-premier phones do better. DNA gets like 5-8hrs talk time if your lucky.

There is no music player.
There is no google wallet. Yep... No Isis at all.

What the hell were they thinking. I mean the 16gig of storage w/o SD Card alone is a really dumb for a phone that is semi advertised as a phablet. 10.7gigs would even hold my photos efficiently. What do you do if you go on a vacation and forget your cam? My old Droid X2 would be useful but the DNA would be done in one day. Then you have to offload.

Note: On any hard drive holding any programs you should leave 15% of your storage free. If not there will be lag and other anomalies.


THIS PHONE IS A BAD IDEA for anyone who has 10gigs of stuff on their current phone.

Great concept but it is not ready for prime time. BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD HTC cause the RazrHD is a superior phone that works in 2feet of water and fully loaded has 42gigs of storage space including the bloatware.


Features - the 1st answer is for the RazorHD and the second answer is the DNA.

Not every phone can be perfect for every person. It's a great thing we have choices!

Welcome to AF, Alias!

I don't see those two issues as quite the deal breaker that you do, obviously everyone has different opinions. In fact I am strongly considering picking up the phone tomorrow at the store. One thing that mitigates the storage, is that OTG cables are supported out of the box, so by carrying around that cable and a flash drive, you can expand your memory that way. And of course the same can be down with external batteries. Obviously, would I have preferred an sd Card slot, and removable battery (or at least a bigger one), sure, but its not something that can't be overcome, and the rest of the specs of this phone make me really think I could live with that

There is, I think that may be a misprint by the OP. It has Beats audio, and amplifiers for both headphones and internal speaker.
