440 pixels per inch for $200: HTC Droid DNA vs iPhone 5 vs Galaxy S III vs Nexus 4 screen comparison

0. phoneArena 14 Nov 2012, 04:41 posted on

Breaking the Full HD screen barrier on our handsets has been the subject of myths and speculations ever since we broke the HD one, and now, with the HTC Droid DNA, we have for the first time something tangible we can buy and carry a 5" 1920x1080 pixels screen with us at all times...

It is not the best when it come to screen comparison above ONLY!!!

At least I can afford it with one hand my friends :)

and iphone is the slimmest among all these, if I want the 1080p screen device, why bother when I can get the iPad instead LOL

Darn Wenda, do you do that when you're outside? I'm worried about the position of your middle finger when you do that...
P.S. If you still choose to do that, don't ever lift your phone up to your eye level.

Got to admire that spirit of yours...
But it still makes you sound dumb...'cause you're way ahead of Samsung!
Especially when Samsung haven't even announced it yet. Not saying Note 3 won't exist, but Note 2 is still a big thing in the mobile universe!!

You have at least 6 months based on the Note I > Note II progression. With the DNA, you could be showing your friends what 1080p love looks like in 1 week. Or, your friends could be showing you....

This phone is awesome. I've been waiting for HTC to drop a 5" phone on the market. The screen is amazing. It sets a new standard for pixel density in today's market. I want this phone as soon as it drops.

droid dna is just the best monster out there. better than any in its catagory. look at the build quality, htc is always a step ahead in terms of quality. but lacks marketing. any ways i hope dna will just rock, good luck htc. love ur phones.

What troubles me is the lack of battery behind the display. My Evo has a 2000mAh battery and while I can't complain about its battery life, it could be better. The DNA has virtually the same battery pushing twice as many pixels and a quad-core processor.

And yeah, HTC could really use a marketing campaign like Samsung has been forcing down our throats for the last few months. If Verizon is making this their flagship, no doubt it will get plenty of ad time.

That is why VZW is selling accessory battery packs when you pre-order the DNA.... They already know you will be needing more than one battery to get through the day with the DNA.

oh and yes for nokia lovers.... 920 lumia is a good phone too but its totally different from this version of android. i would say if HTC really works on marketing this time, then no is gna beat htc. in terms of quality, sense software and music its just steap ahead of all phones or so called phablets. thanx all. and again HTC... WE LOVE UR PHONES.

6 months is a LONG time in this business. For Samsung's sake, I hope they have something a bit better by then.
