So my upgrade is in a couple of weeks. I have been deciding from The htc droid dna, Samsung Galaxy Note 2, or this phone. What are your opinions on this phone or problems you have noticed?

Ooh nice choices. I've only used the s3 out of the 3 but it's really nice. I haven't had any problems with it and it has a good selection of roms / kernels.

I absolutely love this phone. Running carbon rom with it. Lots of great development here and good hardware. Perfect size for me too.

Gnote 2 > GS3 >>>>>> Droid DNA (battery life is just putrid on the DNA)

I've owned my share of phones and the GS3 is the first phone that has cured my flashaholicism.. I am running cleanRom 4.5 and it just works. Battery life is all you can ask for and the phone has all the capabilities of any other phone. I have been 100% happy with this phone and have not had any desire to upgrade to anything else. With that being said, it is 8 months old and the S4 and HTC One are coming. At this stage, you may be best waiting for one of those two.

I prefer the S3. The Note 2 is nice, but it's definitely not a pocket phone. Wouldn't even consider the DNA.

Re: Your opinions on this phone?
The GS3 and Note 2 require cases due to their fragility. Performance wise they're both adequate. Expect occasional lags and Bluetooth routing issues when a headset is plugged in (SoundAbout paid app on the market fixes this) unless you use AOSP based ROMs which still have a litany of quirks and issues for both devices. Note 2 is a giant phone, but the added utility with the pen makes up for it.

Edit/addendum:

DNA shouldn't even be a consideration IMO. Android isn't quite ready for 1080p on the app side and the benefits of the faster hardware are lost due to the vastly increased pixel count. 16GB of non-expandable storage is a joke. Battery life is similar to the GS3 so I won't complain there. The device isn't officially supported by CM and probably won't be, unlike the GS3 and Note 2. Be prepared to love sense if you go this route.
