Major update for the HTC DROID DNA right around the corner

Major update for the HTC DROID DNA right around the corner
Judging by a support page found on Verizon's website, the HTC DROID DNA will soon receive a software update. And what an update it's going to be! It promises to fix quite a few bugs and issues, and it will even enhance certain features even further.

Unfortunately, the update will not bring Android 4.2 to the device, but by the looks of it, it's still going to be a pretty major one. Among the things that will get improved are the hotspot, Bluetooth and wireless connectivity, as well as the sound quality through a headset.

Zooming in the stock browser will also be enhanced, and so will be the Recent Apps feature. Finally, users should be able to experience a more responsive Contacts app, as well as load videos on HuluPlus.

The update is yet to get published, but the appearance of this support page should mean that it's right around the corner.

Wow that was quick. If HTC does this as long as they are manufacturing this phone that would be great.

Battery life isn't even an issue with this phone. If you don't even have the phone, you can't have an opinion on the battery life. If the phone can get you through a full day, being off of the charger from sunrise to sunset with 30-40% to spare before it's plopped on the charger at night (which has been my experience), I'd say that the battery life is more than fine with its "tiny" 2020mAh battery.

some people will never be pleased...the same old complaints is either about a sd card or a battery....get over it...use the cloud for extra storage,,,drive, drop box, box, skydrive....or stop thinking a quad core processor with full hd screen on a 5 inch display with 2 gigs of ram is gonna last you 10 hours playing your games..You have a computer in the palm of your hands....people

If it's not 4.2, it's not major.

Agreed, battery life is not an issue. I was a little hesitant before buying this phone, but my wife and I both get a full 2 days of life with our DNA's. Granted, we are on wifi most of the time, that helps, but seriousely, the efficiency of the phone is great. SD car slot really doesn't matter as well, cloud storage is great, and frankly, we just don't use that much space on the phone with the apps we have and pics, etc. This phone is awesome.

I have issues with Sense, it's kind of problematic as the SMS has incorrect dates for all contacts you sms. It also lags when between hitting the send button and the phone displays it sending. Also would it be too hard to ask for the home button to be able to wake the phone instead of always having to use the power button, there is no way to quickly sneak a look at your phone incognito because you have to pull the whole thing out of your pocket to reach the power button else you would need to learn to read upside down and reversed words.
It's a mighty phone, but it's definitely held back by the greedy as hell Sense 4.0+. I would have loved to see this things on Android JB 4.2.1, that would have been a god send.
Anyway roll on Moto with your X phone, I wonder if Google is poking fun at Apple and calling it xPhone for that reason.
