Nexus 4 or Droid DNA
I love my Galaxy Nexus LTE. It's a great device despite its poor battery life. The camera isn't great, but its good enough for here in the southeast where its sunny most of the year. And honestly, I don't print any of my camera phone photos at all, I use a real camera for that.
So, what should I do? I want the new Nexus, but do I really want to pay for another plan, even a Straight Talk one?
Jelly Bean will launch on the DNA, and it will probably get decent dev support, but I really don't like to root, even though I have before and haven't had any problems doing so.
Timely updates would be great, but LTE is awesome where I live.
I have two upgrades available and I'm seriously considering waiting out this Nexus for the next. I feel that next year, LTE will be a no-brainer for Google.
The Pros and Cons:
HTC Droid DNA
- big, beautiful 1080p SLCD 3 screen
- great HTC build quality
- not stock Android, so no instant updates
- a bit on the big side
- fast updates from Google
- glass back (even though I think it looks good, I've been wondering how repairs will be handled..)
- no LTE
- would require a new plan of some kind
What do you guys think?
