the DNA is the best Android phone right now (well I consider it tied with the Note 2) but the tiny storage space, no SD card and a kinda small battery that youre stuck with forever are deal breakers for me. The Maxx HD has a permanent battery too but its a 3300 mha battery and it has a SD card slot. Its not dated either. It came out in November, the same time as the DNA. It has an updated processor and screen over the last gen Maxx. Cant go wrong with either one really but I gotta have big storage and a big battery cause I work a LOT and am not home a lot and do everything off my phone.
I know Amazon is the place to go for the best prices on phones but phones are the one thing I still gotta do B&M. I like seeing the phone Im gonna get before hand and walking out with it working and being able to go back there the very next day if needs be to take care of an issue. Like I said, my cell phone is crucial to me so I take no chances with it.
