Verizon And HTC Bring Out The Guards: The DROID DNA

The DROID DNA is perhaps the essence of the Verizon Android smartphone catalog (get it?). Despite having a massive 5-inch screen (simply .5 inches shy of the Galaxy Note II from Samsung), it has all of the specifications (specs, for short) that make it an attractive device: A 1.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor (APQ8064 paired with MDM9615m, to be specific) and 2GB of RAM, running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and HTC’s Sense 4+ UI. To take fantastic images, there’s an 8MP f/2.0 rear camera with 28mm wide angle lens, BSI sensor, ImageChip and 1080p HD video capture.

On the opposite side of the phone you can expect to see a 2.1MP f/2.0 front-facing cam that features 1080p HD video record and an 88-degree ultra-wide angle lens. All of this sheer excitement is powered by a 2,000mAh battery, with Qi wireless charging support. Additional little details include Bluetooth 4.0 with aptX support, NFC, MHL, dual mics for noise cancellation bundled with WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n (dual-band). Its physical size measures 9.73mm thick and weighs 4.86 ounces (138g). Beats Audio integration and Verizon Wireless 4G LTE top off the whole package.
