Review: HTC Droid DNA

 

While the 1080p screen on HTC's new handset is mighty pretty, it doesn't turn the mostly decent phone into a must-have device.

The 1920 × 1080 display is the best on any phone, both on paper and in real life. Mostly flawless performance from the quad-core CPU, 2GB of RAM and Verizon’s 4G LTE network. Looks kinda badass. Attention to ergonomic detail is evident in the curved...

Crappy battery life. Display isn’t significantly better than the screens found on top rivals. At 5 inches, the screen is too big — a pain to use with one hand. Little hangnail plastic USB port cover has got to go

HTC Droid DNA (Verizon Wireless)

 

The HTC Droid DNA ($199.99) is not a phone, not yet a phablet. But while it occupies a gray area somewhere in between, one thing is certain: This thing is totally awesome. The DNA's 5-inch, 1080p display is the sharpest on any mobile device available....

Incredible display. Top-of-the-line quad-core performance. Sleek, high-quality build

No microSD card slot. Comparatively average battery

The HTC Droid DNA for Verizon Wireless gets you the fastest performance and the sharpest display we've seen on a phablet yet.

HTC Droid DNA review

 

Guanine, adenine, thymine, cytosine... Android? The Droid DNA -- the latest addition to Verizon's Droid series -- may not contain any actual nucleotides (that we know of), but that doesn't make this HTC-made superphone any less of a powerhouse. On the...

Gorgeous display ; Strong performance ; Durable build quality and elegant design ; Unlocked HSPA+ / GSM radios

Short battery life ; HTC removed the microSD slot

With its display, reasonable price and top-of-the-line components, the Droid DNA is our top choice on Verizon's lineup this holiday season.

HTC Droid DNA review: HTC creates the most awesome Droid ever

 

The new Droid DNA is the best phone I've seen from HTC in a long while, especially on Verizon. With its blazingly swift quad-core processor, and a gorgeous and eye-grabbing 5-inch screen, not to mention a great camera and long battery life, the Droid...

The beautifully designed HTC Droid DNA features a quad-core processor, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, 4G LTE, a sharp 5-inch screen, an excellent camera, and long battery life.

The Droid DNA's large size makes it tricky to fit in tight pockets, and it lacks both an SD card slot and a removable battery.

With quad-core power, 4G LTE, a lovely 5-inch screen, and a stunning design, the $199.99 HTC Droid DNA is currently Verizon's best Android deal.

HTC DROID DNA preview: First look

 

HTC is having a hard time competing at the highest level of the smartphone market lately, but its latest smartphone might be what was needed to turn the tables. The all-caps name of the HTC DROID DNA is, for once, well deserved as this is certainly one...

HTC DROID DNA vs Apple iPhone 5

 

Quickly making its arrival and presence known in time for this crucial holiday period, the HTC DROID DNA is simply one of those new smartphones on the block that really catches attention for its killer specs sheet. More importantly, the question is...

Simply put it folks, the outcome basically boils down to personal preference – even more when they perform similarly in nearly all departments. It’s Android or iOS, so you just have to pick your poison. Also, it’s a matter of big versus smaller in this...

HTC DROID DNA vs Samsung Galaxy Note II

 

Looking at what transpired this year alone, it's a safe call to proclaim it as the year of the phablets, especially considering we've seen a handful of devices pushing the 5-inch mark. In the last couple of months though, we've seen the very best in...

Indeed, the HTC DROID DNA is one attractive looking handset that’s setting the bar with its 1920x1080 display. More importantly, though, we’re grateful to find it priced at $200 with a 2-year contract, which makes it a solid buy for anyone in the...

HTC DROID DNA Review

 

Rather than concocting something that seemingly would fit into the upper echelon of Big Red's lineup, the Taiwanese company is breaking new ground that no other manufacturer has been able to establish. Galvanizing to say the least, the HTC DROID DNA is...

Stunning detail with its 5-inch 1080p display ; Svelte profile & lightweight ; Takes sharp looking photos & videos ; Better 4G LTE signal

Insufficient 16GB of memory with no expansion ; Not enough enhancements with Sense 4.0 ; Indistinct power button & volume control

Slithering its way out of nowhere, surprisingly enough, we have to admit that HTC has a winner in the DROID DNA. Right now, it’s rather difficult to stand atop of the crowd knowing that you have other venerable smartphones out there to compete against,...

HTC DROID DNA Written Review by Taylor

 

The HTC DROID DNA was first announced in November 2012 and to date, it is one of the best built smartphones to come into our possession here at PhoneDog. It is the first 1080p smartphone to grace the U.S. market and it packs a serious wallop in terms...

The display is arguably the best on the market; design and build quality are fantastic; the 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro and 2GB RAM keeps things moving smoothly

Battery life could be better; storage is meager; may to be too big for some

The DROID DNA may not be the perfect smartphone, but it's a sign for better things to come from both HTC and its biggest competitors. It is a new level of design and attention to detail. If display quality is your primary concern, the DROID DNA is...
