I've heard the DNA is great - always liked HTC, even though I've never owned one. Just too many rough things heard about them - bad battery life, camera, the Sense skin sucks, etc.... The Nexus 4 is a great phone IMO, especially for the price. I too am enamored with the iPhone 5 build, however I find the Nexus 4's build quite nice as well. And by the way - I too had that ringtone app that made you go to iTunes - I've replaced it with one that does it on your phone .
