HTC Deluxe render leaks, showing off global version of the HTC DROID DNA

pixel density of 441ppi. Besides using the HTC Deluxe name overseas, the handset will also be given the name in Canada. It is similar to what Motorola did with the Motorola DROID which was given the Motorola MILESTONE name in other parts of the world.
Can the HTC DROID DNA/Butterfly J/Deluxe give the Samsung GALAXY Note II a run for its money? The pixel density on the latter is a more down to earth 265ppi, but the screen is a half inch larger. In addition, the Samsung GALAXY Note II has a 3100mAh battery compared to the 2020mAh cell on the HTC model, which reminds us of something our Momma once told us. No matter how many pixels per inch your device has, if the battery is dead, the screen is worthless.

Nicely stated at the end.

we shouldnt jump to a conclusion until we see some official battery scores. maybe Htc has used a battery of higher density like in the optimus g.

people forget that the 5" is only a mere .2 inches larger than the s3. And in a size comparison its only taller.

what seems to be cool about it is how slim it is.....I have the Htc Droid incredible 4g lte.....and although its 4 inches, the thing I really like about it is how slim and nice it feels in the hand (as well as the bright screen of course) but if this 5 inch phone is as slim as it appears at that height then it may very well feel good to hold despite it being that large.....only problem may be with having to reach across the screen with your thumb...... which is why i lean more towards the smaller more reasonable size phones like 4 to 4.3 inches

I think the DNA is a little wider too isn't it? Bit your right it not much bigger. I think the HTC will be a lot faster than our s3 though. In general HTC phones have always been more powerful. And I like my phones to be fast that's why I will get the DNA. My buddy has the note 2 which is nice but Verizon screwed up yje note 2 with that ridiculous home button. And that thing is huge

I really wish they'd stop calling these phablets when they clearly stated that these are Smartphones, not phablets. They may be big phones but they have no tablet functionality like the Note has. There's really no comparison between these and the Note II either way you look at it and we all know that the features on the Note trump anything Sense may have (which happens to be nothing new in 4 years).

Ditching the 4G LTE should make way for a bigger battery and more storage, say 16GB + microSD (or 64GB internal) and 2500mAh battery. ..then the only thing left is to hit the world with a GOOD massive add campaign. - CLEAR (FullHD screen, 8MP f2.0 rear and 2.1MP 88° ff camera, Beats audio) - FAST (Quad S4, Adreno 320, 2GB RAM) - SLIM & LIGHT (

You can't just ditch the LTE chip. It's integrated into the S4 processor so it wouldn't make a difference in the phone space-wise. There really is no reason why they couldn't have fit more memory or SD slot into the phone, especially more onboard storage. HTC really does need to invest in finding better battery tech for their phones.
