I have the DNA and it is a pretty solid phone. Same size screen and resolution as the M8. I can get the phone and the dot case for $200 @ verizon and sell my DNA for around $200, essentially breaking even. I am not sure what is coming down the road but I like HTC devices.

Should I pull the trigger on this? What about you guys who have DNA's and One's?

Thanks!

I wouldn't say that it's such a huge difference that you need to upgrade, but it really depends on you. If you don't have any problems with your DNA and are comfortable keeping it for a while, there's nothing wrong with just keeping it. Performance on the DNA is very good still, so it's not like say, having an iPhone 4 with a degraded iOS 7 experience with the option to go to a 5S.

The M8 does give you some nice upgrades, in terms of build quality, battery, audio, and some software features (IR Blaster, double tap to wake, etc). It's a worthy upgrade from the DNA, but yeah, kind of depends on you. DNA will only decrease in value going forward, and I'm actually trying to get rid of the two I have right now, replacing them both with M8's...

Thanks! I think the main reason why is to try and get as much as I can for my DNA. Also, the battery really drains fast when using GPS/watching videos etc. From about 6am till 10am using gps for about 20 min and watching videos for 1 1/2 hours, my battery was at 4%.

Plus I like that dot case
