Reason 11: NFC has very little to do with payments
All I hear from people is that NFC isn't anything special since no payment standard has been readily adopted. Once you have a device with NFC, you should quickly learn that payments are just a small part of the technology. I use NFC to simply connect to Bluetooth speakers, share images between devices, check on the status of my ORCA transit card, and tap on NFC tags to control my device. It's a shame that Apple didn't add it to the iPhone 5, but I guess it was held back so they could get us to buy the next incremental update.
Reason 12: HTC is focused on people
HTC does a great job with their Android devices when it comes to integrating people into the experience. They have had evolving People utilities for years and their current application lets you quickly view contact details, recent communications, social networking status updates, and images from various galleries.
Reason 13: Google Now gives me a glimpse of the future
Google Now is a slick service that provides you with unsolicited information based on your Internet usage patterns. I like that it automatically tracks my packages and provides status update, has a great voice recognition system, and keeps me updated on my sports teams without requiring me to do much of anything. Unlike my Galaxy Note II, it is very easy to get to Google Now on the Droid DNA by simply pressing and holding the center Home button.
