HTC DROID DNA Review

0. phoneArena 15 Nov 2012, 08:42 posted on

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 a meticulous work of technology, as its 5-inch 1920x1080-pixel Super LCD 3 display is a monumental feat in itself that’s unmatched at the moment...

This is a discussion for a review. To read the whole review, click here

Galaxy Note II is a much better phone. Verizon's a rip-off company any way. I ordered a phone from their internet sales, decided that I wanted a different phone, and they never refunded my $200.00. Not much good I can say about a mega huge company not giving me back a lousy $200.00, and believe me I tried calling them 6 different times about this matter.

Maybe in a few months you can find it for $100 less, if it is not sold out; by then you'll be waiting for the GS IV.

I DID want this Phone but if it's coming to NA with 11GB, no Micro-SD and a bit smaller Battery than we want (and no means to swap it with a fresh one) then I'll be waiting for either the HALF Price Sale OR the GS4 (unless Sony or Nokia has something up their Sleeve).

Is this phone on Verizon only, or can I pop my straight talk sim in it? If not is there an HTC either comparable to this that is out or will be out soon?

I got the phone to test it out until the note2 comes out. Right now i like it i cannot stand the no sd card, the battery has not been that bad when i watch hulu or nextflix i plug it in. I really wanna keep it but the note2 and all its S pen and able use an sd card is making it hard.

Amazingly no reviewer talks about the bugs of Sense UI. HTC has changed the android multitasking which is a pain in the ass. Sense kills apps in background very aggressively(even with huge amount of RAM. The maximum no. of apps which can multitask is 6 witn 2GB RAM.. Can u beleive it??) This is being done to achieve a hassle free & lag free experience with better battery life. However, none of these has been achieved in any of HTC devices. All the HTC devices struggle for battery life & UI lags. The webpage reloading in HTC phones while toggling between apps is another major issue no reviewer talks about. Dont think these Smartphone reviewers are SMART. May be I should become a "Smartphone Reviewer".. :).. HTC one series has the BEST camera & image quality among all smartphones. & the looks of HTC beats even the IPHONEs... But performance is an issue.
