    The only reason to get an iPhone over a DNA is iTunes integration.

    The hardware on the DNA is better in every category the only thing that could be debated are battery and camera and they're better on the DNA in a majority of the reviews out there . As for Android Vs iOS that's a matter of opinion and what works better for the user.

    If you enjoy watching video, movies etc on your phone, you have got to watch on the DNA. I quickly became accustomed to the screen size. When my wife shows me a video on her IPhone 5, it really hits me regarding how nice the DNA's screen is....size and clarity. The 5 is no slouch but it seems tiny to me. Compare at a store....I find the batteries last very similar. My wife charges each day, as do I. We both stream/play music via Bluetooth for 2 hrs each day (ride to/from work). We are probably middle of the road users as far as how much we use phone. I use it more as I listen/stream to baseball games while working. Im up at 430am and bed at 10pm. I usually have 40% or more
    Remaining before bed with around 4 hrs screen time.

    Sent from my DNA.

    I am in the same situation as WhoDunIt and his wife. I have the DNA and my wife has the IPhone5 and I agree with everything he said. It is a nice phone but just doesn't seem to hold a candle to my DNA, at least for my purposes. I really wanted to like the I5 but the main thing is how small it is. I also don't see any areas that the I5 is truly superior to the DNA.

    You can find a lot of comparison sites that take a look of the side-by-side specs, such as this one from TechCrunch.

    Battery:
    DNA - 12h 40 min. talk time
    iPhone 5 - 8h talk time

    Screen:
    DNA - 1080 x 1920px, 5" Super LCD3 screen
    iPhone 5 - 1136 x 640px, 4" Retina display (LCD)

    Pic (camera?)
    DNA - 8 MP, front-facing included, video @ 1080p on both front and back
    iPhone 5 - 8 MP, front-facing included, video @ 720p, image stabilizer

    Also, after many months of having both in my house I can say that they both function about the same overall in real world usage. The biggest difference is going to be whether you prefer Android or IOS. If there is no preference then it will come down to whether you like the bigger screen (DNA) or if you desire a more compact phone (I5).

    The iPhone 5, is still the best world phone if your traveling. You go to Europe and get a sim, and your good to go. It can get lte prepaid Sims in Australia or England and it works, no android phone comes close, and I am a android guy. Droid X, (which worked great in japan) Droid Razr, (which I could not get to work in UK, before ics upgrade), and now GS3, which gives trouble when you travel but only the Verizon version. You can get calls and texts but no data.
