The battery completely ruins the phone. So yes I would say that it sucks. With phones battery is one of the most important features. I'd rather be stuck with 800x400 with a battery that last 16 hours than 1080p with awesome hardware and it can't make it through the workday.

Small battery on high powered device, what were they thinking? Making it non replaceable makes it seem like they are trying to screw up the phone.

All things aside, samsung has to improve the UI. I find their phones beautiful, until I look at the UI and man is that ever a turn off. I know, I know...you can flash something else on...I'd rather buy something that works without me having to work on it.

Seriously, the UI needs to change and change for the better.

After that, we can talk about construction. Bring in some HTC inspired designs (the good old HTC, nice metallic feel instead of cheap plastic) would be GREAT!

Lock button is horrible, lock button location is horrible, ergonomics are horrible, it's a htc so by default it's horrible, battery sucks, no removable battery... if someone said they would trade their DNA for my s3 I'd so no thanks...

About half of that describes the iPhone as well... keep that in mind.

Also, I've played around with the Droid DNA in a Verizon store, and trust me, it is NOT horrible. It's actually a very slick piece of kit. It's seriously fast, too. For the price, there isn't another handset on the market that can compete with it. The ONLY exception to that rule is the Nexus 4, but it only has a 1280x768 screen.

It's not perfect, but then again, no phone is. I'll take the DNA over many other competing handsets. The DNA is definitely better than the SGSIII.

HTC Droid DNA is 5", 1080P, and not pentile. You cannot see the pixels on the Droid DNA.

It can be done.

Yeah but its to jumps for samsung. They are not using IPS screen.

Also for those that dont know Pentile is so bad under low brightness.

Yea, but AMOLED is one of the few technologies that does extremely well on displays with high pixel density. Pentile is cheaper than a regular RGB grid array, but that's about it.

Also, it will probably be pentile as green has traditionally been a weak color on AMOLED displays; pentile accents green mostly.

If either of you read his reasons for such a statement then you would understand, it wasn't the compute hardware he/they where talking about it was the build quality...but they got a new one on a warranty claim (for $100, I don't get it at all, I thought they're supposed to replace not take more money for their faulty device, but whatever.)

A non removable battery is a deal breaker for me. If the battery isn't removable, it has to be a massive battery to save it. Like I said, I'd stick with my s3 over the DNA.

Also, I'm a Samsung fan boy and a htc hater. I've had hands on usage with every galaxy since the vibrant. Ever since the sensation I've put htc on the back burners...

The problem with pentile is the pixel layout makes things look fuzzy and generally kinda crap if you have picky eyes like me.
The note 2 solves it by having a short red and green pixel horizontal, and a large blue pixel vertical. It makes things a lot sharper (since every pixel has a red, green, and blue sub pixel)

And you can't compare the DNA's screen to the Samsung screens. Totally different technology.
And the problem with Amoleds are premature BLUE pixel deaths. (which is the reason for pentile and the non-standard RGB layout of the note 2)

Apparently our eyes are less sensitive to blues, so by using larger, dimmer blue pixels, and double up on the reds and greens, they can get the pentile displays to last longer (then improved on it with the GN2 screen)

I still don't understand Samsungs original logic of "Less blue cause they die faster". though based off the images of the GS3 screen, the reds are VERY tiny, greens are very thin, and the blues are pretty fat and big (but dimmed) So I guess by using half the number of lower output large blues, combined with the layout, attempts to get more life out of the screen. But it makes everything jagged and is especially noticeable with whites and text together.

I highly doubt they will use a pentile display now that they've found a solution with the Note 2's screen
