    I think ppl just need to compare it to more similar batteries. Like the GS3 and One X stock batteries. Dont compare it to the Maxx, HD Maxx or Note 2, those batteries are huge. Should the DNA came with a bigger battery? Thats up for debate...but so far battery tests I've seen shows the DNA is decent with battery life.

    I wonder why the RAZR isnt on the GSM Arena tests...I see the RAZR i and Maxx. Surprised the RAZR HD's arent on there too.

    I kind of resented the fact the RAZR was omitted, I'm still on the fence on the DNA as phone of the month for me. RAZR was livable battery wise for me, kinda miss seeing how much time I could squeeze out of it. A game unto itself.

    Yea...I have a Maxx HD now. And I see the difference in battery life. I no longer have to put my phone in Airplane Mode at work and can still use it on the ride home from work with battery to spare. (bad reception area at work, have to put phone in locker, no signal kills batteries) BUT....I felt the RAZR had decent battery life for its battery size and specs.

    Keep telling myself to buy/rent and give it a thrashing, if I don't like, razr maxx HD trade in time.

    There is absolutely no way the ipoop5 has better battery life than the maxx, it only has a 1440 mah battery.

    I could live with the lack of SD slot but having the non removable battery does kind of kill this phone in my eyes.

    I would rather the phone be 1-2mm thinner and have a non removable battery.
    I could live without a sd card if there was sufficient storage but 10 gigabytes just isn't enough room with todays high res photos and huge detailed games.I would be happy with 20 but prefer around 30 gigs

    I was just about to call BS because there's simply no way. Even with browsing only, even with optimized browsing, I still don't buy it.

    I can sit my MAXX HD on Mobile Hotspot with my Nexus 7 constantly browsing for over 12 hours and still have battery left. I can game on the MAXX HD for at least 10. There's simply no way it's getting 9 hours browsing.

    They claim 16 hours of video playback and I don't see that happening either. On razr maxx which I have.

    I didn't conduct the test though.

    What? The phone? Or what our hard earned bucks want?
