What's the deal with group messaging on Android? I know my friends have had some problems with it and it doesn't work as smoothly as it does on an iPhone.

This. A LOT of quadcore, 1080p phones are going to be coming out this year. The DNA was just the start of it. HTC should be releasing the M7 (I think it's going the be like the Nexus 4 as far as being unlocked goes) which is going to be a big step up from the DNA. I hope samsung has updated the touchwiz UI, it's a decent UI but it feels kind of old (kind of like iOS).

So far the battery on my DNA has been great. Its been off the charger for 10 hours and is at 36 percent and its been used heavily all day. I am REALLY surprised.

Having the HTC DNA I could never live with a lesser phone.

The screen is what makes the difference. Its amazing on so many levels.

Battery life does suck but I am on my phone all day. I charge it everynight and its good to go again, so who really cares if it doesnt last 2 days with out a charge. Do it everynight and its done

Battery isn't that bad. It's a lot better than I was expecting it to be. The phone really is THAT good. On xda-developers.com there's a thread going on where people are posting up what bugs they are having with it. HTC is actually keeping up with the thread via the OP which is really nice to hear.

Definitely glad I didn't go with the . Thinking about picking up the wireless charging stand for it. havent found a case for it that I like yet.

I was going to get an otter case but honestly the more I use the phone the less I want it in a case. It fits in my hand and works perfect as is. I think I dont want any more bulk on it and nothing covering the screen. I am just going to get a slip in leather case for when its rattle around somewhere loose.

Only problem is I work with metal and grinding dust and shavings love to get into my speakers. I am just not going to keep it in my pocket when working and hope to avoid this. a good full case would prevent it but like I said I dont want a case. I am usually very rough on phones too but I am extra careful with this one I like it so much

Well whatever you get, make sure it's not one that's really tight around the sides/edges of the screen. I've seen pictures of the DNA that's had a case like that and it's created a blue spot near the bottom of the screen.

Bringing this back up. Who all has rooted/rommed their phones? Screenshots would be sick too. Im currently running a supercharged sense rom that optimizes sense for a lag free, smooth UI. Helps battery life too.

I hear ya. Its been about 2 years since I had my droid2 and I had that rooted and rommed as well. I was a bit rusty and nervous when doing my DNA. Its not like my old iphone where you cant brick it.

I've got my Razr Maxx rooted, running on the Jellybean OTA leak. Mostly rooted just to use Titanium Backup.
