She must barely use it lol. I can't get a good 5 hours worth of usage on mine. So ready to upgrade to something better. I just don't know what to get.

After having note 2 battery, I'm spoiled and won't have anything less. All batteries should get no less than 5hrs screen on time with a full day on battery, might seem like a lot, but most people don't wanna worry about battery ever...I don't.

tappin from the Note II

The battery thing is a minor annoyance to me but nothing that I can't deal with. I do tether my laptop a good bit so that definitely cuts into the battery life. Still not sure what I'm going to get considering the One is unavailable on Verizon. Maybe I should look into the Note II....

Thats why I was asking about the note 3 earlier, but we have another 7 months+ before that..

Quick S4 question , Is the 16 gb of storage an sd card that comes with the phone? Most android phones have apps that will only install to internal memory so despite the expandable slot in my htc evo shift I literalyl cannot update apps because the apps have gotten to big of internal memory and won't go to sd cards. So understanding that is the lynch pin of my decision atm.

I personally just don't like the size of the Note. 5" is about perfect for me so it may come down to the DNA or S4. S4 is definitely the better phone but the DNA would be cheaper and subjectively looks better....

Doubt you'll profit with DNA battery over the one in Nex.

I'm also not satisfied with my Nex battery and considering S4 atm.

Maybe we should make a club?

Lol, like I said I don't really mind the battery issue too much. I'm always around a charger if I need it. Just a minor inconvenience...

I know im reppin the note 2 but i agree, 5" is the perfect size for a phone. I did like holding my friends dna, but the screen wasnt that impressive, i expected to be wowed. Im looking into getting a gs4 now, ill be downgrading in battery but i think ill live...maybe!!! I have to say though, despite its several flaws, i love the gnex. It looks sexy, still pretty snappy, and can customize the crap out of it. I use it as a backup in case i mess up the note. Ive had offers from people to buy it off me, but i think ill keep it and its the original one.
