    ^it's over the ref is hugging htc.

    What happen HTC 2 years ago you was one of the big dogs and now it is like you gotten old. You no longer bring originality to the table but try to copy other people's style and doing a bad job at it. What happen was you got cocky and thought you was smarter that every one else "quietly brilliant" but you stopped listening to your customers. Since the incredible people have complained about the small batteries and not once did you think to listen. You migrated away from android by making sense to heavy. Samsung tw adds features while Sense just adds more junk in the form of more htc widgets. At this point you should go back to your roots making a clean google device similar to the g1 with an adequate battery and openness. You need people to get excited about your product again. It is so sad to see a legend of the game pass their prime. Thanks for the memories HTC. On the move.

    Although, in all fairness, the DNA has amazing battery life considering how small its battery is. Hopefully this will prove the same.

    Yeah I'm sure the battery if fine for now but since we're stuck with these phones for 2 years, after about a year and half and countless recharges, you won't be able to get thru lunch without a charger nearby and since it's a non removable battery, you're up a creek.

    As for the SD card, I think the answer is just like the guy mentioned above. Why offer a SD card slot for free when you can charge $100 extra for a 32GB "upgrade" of internal memory that costs them about as much extra as a couple cups of coffee. I think it's as simple as that. I don't buy the multiuser excuse cause while I get some of their arguments, why not offer consumers the choice? I'd even be up for paying $10-20 more for SD support.

    I will never buy a phone that doesn't have SD support as long as there are such phones available that is.

    The One should do at least a little better on battery than the DNA because it has a newer S4 600 that includes the integrated LTE and it has a slightly smaller screen. Those two things should save a little power so it should do better than a DNA with a 2300mAh battery. Still even if the battery was great and I didn't care about not having a MicroSD slot what was HTC thinking when they made that software. There is a reason people have been congratulating Moto on slimming down Blur and complaining about TouchWiz. HTC just made TouchWiz look like stock.

    BTW...Great job on the Camera and Audio HTC! Also props for keeping the LCD screen! You'll have to prove to me that all of your radios function just as well as a Razr with all that metal.

    Be careful to slam the battery in the One if you have a Note 2. This may very well get better battery life than a Note 2. The processor and LTE chipset are probably quite a bit less energy efficient in the Note 2 than the ones in the DNA and the One. Also, that huge OLED screen eats power. Set your brightness to be as bright as the LCD on the DNA or the One and you'll probably be able to watch your batter level fall. Someone with a One can change the display brightness from auto to something lower like probably what auto is on the Note 2 and save a lot of power. Samsung didn't give the note 2 a big battery because they're awesome and they're going to do that will all their phones. At least I'm pretty sure they did that for the Note 2 because it needed it. I'm sure most people will easily get through the day with it but I'm just saying, it's not in the same class as a GS3, Maxx HD, or One as far as power consumption goes.

    I am not a techy as far as batteries so I can not give you figures but I can go off real world useage and my note 2 easily goes a day and a half of moderate usage.

    Another person for whom they will have to pry away my SD card. I travel quite a bit, so I want my content available locally on the phone (without having to pick and choose and make trade-offs). It would also be interesting to compare how much juice your phone uses to play music or video from the SD vs. streaming from the cloud.

    As for the battery, you can never have too much. Yes, I'm not a particularly heavy user and can easily get a day - but my preference would certainly be brighter displays and screen on more (I hate hitting a button to turn the screen on). Or you could have the screen pop-on for a notification, or on movement (such as picking it up), but services to monitor that would sip juice, as well.

    It's mostly a cost issue in terms of selling a phone for a certain price at a certain margin. I think the list of consumers frustrated with limited choices is growing. Can't wait for the day when I can order my phone like a computer and choose all my hardware.

    The multi-user excuse is weak. While it makes sense (somewhat) for tablets, phones are very personal and nearly everyone has one. I don't see it as needing multi-user support. At best we are talking multi-identity where one might want a completely separate config for work and personal (talking a firewall between apps and content). That would actually be an argument for MORE SDcard space than less, IMO.

    Now I don't use my phone this way, but if we had more space it would be a great back-up source for your critical PC files. Sure, plenty of online solutions available but that's not always ideal.

    That's funny, Motorola makes a battery that size, but has a screen that is simply trounced by HTC screens. Sorry I just can't stand to look at those hideous resolutions Motorola pukes out! I would take a battery that gets me through an average day with spectacular 1080p screen over a battery that lasts 2 days with a putrid screen, like Motorola's.
