HTC Droid DNA lands in Verizon stores today
The HTC Droid DNA is the first of its kind, a 5-inch monster phone with 1080p screen resulting in a pixel density of 441ppi. And without getting too technical, that’s a lot and means text will be clearer and easy to read, images will look even nicer, and you won’t be able to spot a single pixel even when you get up close.

And today, the HTC Droid DNA finally arrives in Verizon Wireless’ stores. You can get it for $199.99 on a two-year contract.

As a Droid phone it comes with a fun little slogan to “upgrade your human specifications.” And it really is quite an upgrade. Still, the Droid DNA is the first of many to come. We expect all hell to break loose at CES and MWC with 1080p displays on phones from virtually every phone maker we can think of. Yes, hopefully the next Samsung Galaxy S phone as well.

But if you don’t want to wait for that, just go to the source below to get the HTC Droid DNA.

Great phone. I'm waiting for the european premiere...32GB or SD card slot, of course...and...can we skip the whole 2013 drama about "the old DNA has 2020 mah battery, but DNA+ has 2500 mah in almost the same dimensions" and give us directly 2500 mah battery?

I had the chance to stop and look at this phone. It's really nice. It looks like a beefed up rezound. The only problem is that 16gb is not a lot for two years. I've had my s3 for six months and have used over 6gb already and I barely have anything on it. So in the end I'm waiting to see if somehow or someway the note2 doesnt have that stuipd marked home button! and the note2 will be the next phone.

Went to check out the DNA today and honestly, i'm not impressed. All this was hype. a screen that i do not see a difference in, a 2020mAh battery. Really? What the hell is? 1998? And you cant remove the battery and no expandable memory. And yet HTC wonders why they cant be amongst top 3 in the mobile world. As a proud american of taiwanese descent, i am ashamed htc represents my ancestrial country. HTC should stand for HORRIBLE TECHNOLOGICAL CRAP.

Wow, you know nothing. The 202mah is better then the S3 2100mah according to the GSMarena. You can't tell the different on the screen then you may need glasses. Because I can tell the different between the S3 and the EVO lte.

Well I broke down and bought the DNA today. I have to say the battery life is better than I thought. A Lot better. The phone is really fast and I live in a 3g area. I dont care much for the stock HTC launcher so I installed APEX for my launcher and now it's awesome. It is truely snappy opening apps and the screen is super nice. The main thing I don't care much for is the build quality! It's not as good as some of the past HTC's it's light and kind of feels cheap IMO though. And the phone is almost dead on the same size as the s3. The screens are right there as well you really have to look to see the difference.
