Discussion in 'HTC Droid DNA' started by cereal killer, Nov 26, 2012.
Mine lasted over 14 hours with pretty heavy use (HD games, browsing on 4g, music, etc.)
I got the droid DNA a couple days ago been using it a lot I get five hours of on and off use I love this phone don't get me wrong but the battery on this phone sucks. I took this phone off charge around 1 o'clock my battery was dead by 6 o'clock and half the time my phone was in sleep mode this battery sucks so I returned it and got the note 2
I agree the droid dna battery sucks
I agree with you the battery sucks on this phone, I got the droid DNA a couple days ago been using it a lot I get five hours of on and off use I love this phone don't get me wrong but the battery on this phone sucks.

I've been pleasantly surprised with battery life on the DNA. I'm easily making it from 6am until at least 10pm with still about 10%left on the battery if not more. Currently tonight I still have 40% left and have been using it off and on since 7am.
This is better than my Bionic with the extended battery. I'm very happy so far.
With moderate usage
This has been a very light useage weekend.
A handful of texts, a few short calls. Maybe 20 minutes of light gaming and 30 mins of music.
But still, this is realllly impressive IMO
100% stock BTW.

razr maxx hd gets about 7 hours of screen "on" time. .. these graphs dont do the phone any justice without a Picture of the screen "on" time.
Who cares what the maxx gets this is a htc dna forum?
Lol on a side note I still have my maxx hd and keep it on me just on case my DNA dies...
Yeh I wish the dna had the maxx battery which device do you like better?
I am not sure why people keep comparing the battery life of the DNA to phones like the Razor Maxx HD and Note 2. Both of those phones cost about 50% more on average than the DNA. For an extra $100 those phones better last longer on a charge.
Design wise I gotta say, to me, the DNA is sexier. Both feel premium I just prefer the feel of the DNA especially the back of the phone. The red accents are also pretty damn sexy... It was hard for me to put a case on this bad boy but oh well... I've been usign the DNA more the past few days but all of a sudden last week it seemed that everyday the maxx hd would freeze up on me once a day and yeah occasionally the moto would get laggy... The reason I initially bought the maxx hd was cause battery was my main priority. Maybe cause I came from a thunderbolt...lol. also I noticed that the battery was getting hotter too at times but I'm not sure if I could consider that "overheating." Initially I was going to buy the DNA but literally last second I opted for the DNA solely off the screen. My wife has the s3 and I'm not a fan of touchwiz, but I was also skeptical of sense. S pen? Don't need it . Plastic? No thanks! I figured I got this beast battery in my maxx hd lemme just grab this beautiful screen . I can't shortchange the maxx hd especially with its battery life , its hard to kill it... Also if shop around u can get it for the same price as the DNA if not cheaper . I think I fell into the quad core craze but honestly I don't notice any difference in speed but I don't play games or apps where it might be noticed . Right now though I'm really digging the DNA.
