    I love the HTC build quality and overall form factor of the DNA. Even the charging slot plastic cover isn't bugging me like I thought it would. One question though is the amount of pressure I have to put on the power button to fire up the phone - have to push hard and hold for a few moments to power up this beauty - anyone else experiencing this??

    No problems, not even with the silicone cover.

    No mine seems fine, the only problem I have with it is how flush it is, but that is by design.

    Coming from the Rezound the flush buttons on this phone don't bother at all........ I absolutely love everything about about this phone........ still can't believe I see no marketing of any kind for it........ how much fun to have a new gadget-right?

    I found it is easier to push when using a fingernail instead of trying to push with the pad of the finger. For what it's worth! :)

    Where did you get the silicone cover? Would you recommend it? Do you have a screen protector? Does the case Cover the back led?

    If powered off, mine takes a steady press for about 5 seconds to power on. Otherwise, a quick press and it lights up. I downloaded an app "Auto Screen On" so that I would not have to press button. It turns on when I remove it from my holster or touch the proximity sensor (to the right of Verizon at the top of the screen). So far so good.

    i wish there was a button at the bottom like s3. Thats the only thing i liked in s3.
    other than that this phone is awesome. while sleeping i dont know which side to press to wake the darn thing up ;)

    wish we could use the volumne rockers.
    also wish they wouldnt work while the phone was locked, except when music was playing through headphone only
    well.. i wish !!!!
