Touchwiz is SO AWESOME!!!! jellybean on top of touchwiz= pure awesomeness!
I don't hate the way Sense operates, just the way it looks. Touchwiz seems to be my favorite of all UI's ive messed with. Don't get me wrong, I would get on that DNA in a heartbeat if it wasn't for the S3....there is just something about the S3 though.....

Yeah its nice for sure. I feel like the DNA may be easier to root though which i plan on doing.

So the DNA has no removable battery and no expandable memory? It sounds like you really like the DNA though. I would go look at both phones and just choose the first one that really calls your name.

Why would you need a removable battery and expandable memory?

A reason I love HTC is they are easier to root. And if you've never rooted a phone, you've never used your phone to its full capacity

I like the DNA, but a 5" screen on an everyday phone is just crazy to me. I have pretty generous sized hands, and I HATE the screen size of the s3 and the DNA. 3.5" - 4" screens for me.

Otherwise, the DNA is pretty sweet TBH. They were stupid to put the lock/power button on the top though.

yeah that's one of my only gripes with it, and it's kind of flush to the body of the phone so it can be harder to press, but oh well.

I'm going to the verizon store later today to mess with em some more, but not till like 4 or 5 because I'm still drunk from last night

Uh well, larger battery, being able to swap batteries if the old one craps out. Having more memory for apps,games,movies,etc. what's the point of having a quad core processor if all you do is text and make phone calls. This phone also has beats audio, so having lots of music would be nice.

I am fond of my original Galaxy Note. I love everything about it, except the Snapdragon S3 sometimes causes some lag and stuttering. Getting a Note 2 when my upgrade is due or a Nexus. (Provided an LTE Nexus is available then).

Eh, just gives you an excuse to get a whole new phone if something else goes bad, you can just say the battery is bad on it and they'll give you a new one Done it with my iPhone a few times.

The battery thing I could see, but still not really needed in my mind. I'm rocking the thunderbolt, and have been since it released. Quite possibly the worst battery life of any phone ever. Luckily I am always near a power source, Hehehe.

For data storage, I can't see it. Who keeps music and media on their phone these days. With a 4g phone, why wouldn't you stream media? I use pandora and have a subsonic server with over 2000 movies. Oh, and netflix.

Yup, I only keep like 500 songs on my iPhone and that only took up 6 gigs of space WITH apps that I have downloaded. I use pandora for everything else.

Well the battery thing alone would be reason enough for me. When I went to New York last year I bought 3 extra batteries for when I was out roaming the streets using google maps and the subway app to not miss the train I needed to get on. If I didn't have a removable battery, I would have been lost.
And yes a lot of people are putting a lot more stuff on their phones these days due to people ditching laptops and pc's. I mean some games are 1gb or bigger.

Yup, Droid RZR is garbage. My bud had his battery explode on him. He went through 3 of them then Verizon switched him to the Galaxy S2 and he hasn't had any problems since.
