HTC DROID DNA vs Samsung Galaxy Note II
Placing voice phone calls isn’t a problem with these two devices, even more when we’re greeted with clear and audible voices on both ends of the line. However, we appreciate the “Extra Volume” option on the Galaxy Note II, which aptly produces the louder volume tones between the two.


Big screens and high resolutions typically results in getting poor battery life, right? Well, with the HTC DROID DNA, its battery life isn’t prolific in any means, seeing that it pulls out 10 hours of normal usage via LTE connections. However, we’re surprised to say the least to find the Note II pulling 2 days of usage via HSPA+ connections – with close to a solid day under its belt on LTE.


Indeed, the HTC DROID DNA is one attractive looking handset that’s setting the bar with its 1920x1080 display. More importantly, though, we’re grateful to find it priced at $200 with a 2-year contract, which makes it a solid buy for anyone in the market for a premier smartphone. However, if you’re willing to dish out the extra $100 to pick up the Samsung Galaxy Note II for $300 on-contract, it’s still an alluring option to go with considering the wealth of functionality it has to offer over its rival. Above all, it’s the bigger 5.5” display and the TouchWiz Nature UX experience of the Note II that makes it such a prolific offering – especially when we see the advantageous benefits of the S-Pen. Not only that, it proves its worth in key categories, like taking photos/video and battery life, to make it a tangible selection worth the money spent on it.
