Here are features it's supposed to have (based on leaks) not in the DNA:
  • First use of SoLux display technology in a mobile device
  • 32GB+ internal storage
  • 2,300 mAh battery
  • 13MP Exmor RS camera sensor
  • First official use of Sense 5
It's supposed to follow Samsung's lead with the SGS3 and be released on multiple U.S. carriers without any changes (unlike the One XL, EVO 4G LTE) and Sprint's supposed to carry it so a CDMA version will exist. If VZW decides not to carry it then the DNA will remain the HTC "flagship" but only on VZW. Thereís not one feature on the DNA thatís superior to the leaked specs of the M7. And while the M7ís display might be 3/10 of an inch smaller SoLux stands to set a new standard in brightness and outdoor usability. As it is, the DNAís display is 30% dimmer than the OG One X.

If youíre on VZW wait until the HTC U.S. launch of the M7 on February 19th to see if their one of the carriers thatís going to carry it. If they donít and you want an HTC device the DNAís still a solid choice if you can live with the battery and storage constraints.
Totally true. The M7 will absolutely be a flagship device on every carrier its launched on.....at least until the snapdragon 800 SoCs arrive in phones by mid year...

M7 should be launched in march I believe and looks to have the 600 series SoC probably... Given Rajs discussion of it being in hands of consumers earlier...

The dna is latest phone in that series of great phones.

The m7, while a capable device, is not in the same league as the dna. Regarding s-off, I assume you have not had Htc devices before. S-off always comes, and honestly it's really not that big of a deal anyway. Like others have mentioned, it only makes things slightly easier.

Good luck on your purchase

Wow. I like my DNA as much as the next guy, but the m7 is definitely an all around better specced device.

How much more of a difference does 280mAmps make with the M7's battery?

Isn't it almost 300mah more?

Edit: I meant 300 lol

You're right about 280. It will make some difference but not night and day.

It's 12% larger. The wildcard is how much energy the SoLux display consumes. In non-mobile applications it's twice as efficient as incandescent bulbs. It's never been used in a mobile device before so all 12% of the extra battery life could be used by the display or it could consume half the energy of existing displays furthering the M7's battery life. We'll have to wait until it gets tested to know the impact.

Itís supposed to be released Q1 and it would be fantastic for HTC if they could score being the launch customer with the M7. The XZ is using the same SoC as the DNA/Butterfly and Iíd guess LGís 1080P device will too. 600 will be far more effective against Exynos Octa. Hereís an interesting article where Qualcommís CEO describes what Samsungís trying to do with Octa and why.
