The DNA is an excellent value for the money on Verizon right now. I'd certainly recommend it over anything at its' price point. The design is very pretty to look at, but two ergonomic challenges are bound to frustrate- a hopelessly flimsy charging port door and an oddly placed power button. The power button should really have gone just about anywhere else. The display is flawless, and crystal clear. Cameras are solid, but the front cam lends a reddish cast to most shots. Call quality via Bluetooth is not as good as it was with my old Rezound. Performance is very solid, but nothing to write home about. Sense 4+'s design motifs are dated at this point and well overdue for an update, which should arrive by years' end if we are to believe what HTC tells us. Battery life is solid for a 5-inch quad-core 4GLTE device, and certainly an improvement from the previous generation of 4G phones. The Android app ecosystem, while occasionally a step or two behind iOS on the latest app, is still very robust. All in all, the DNA is not a bad way to spend your $50 if you can't afford the $200 for a One. In addition, its' software will be updated to a version practically identical to the One's, so it will be a very similar experience.
