Review HTC Droid DNA (Butterfly) Smartphone

 

New Droid. HTC offers a new mainstream smartphone with a bright Full HD display and a Snapdragon S4 Pro SoC. The technology of the Super LCD 3 display was already convincing in the review of the larger sibling HTC One, but we also have a closer look at...

Great display, High color accuracy, Full HD, Good build quality, Application performance, The vibrant display and the good build quality look as if they were made out of one piece. The Droid DNA is comfortably in the hands despite its large 5.0-inch...

Mediocre camera, Limited storage without expandability, Average battery runtimes, Non-removable battery, High price, The internal storage is not very generous with 16 GB. A micro SD slot for expandability would have been nice

HTC Butterfly X920d Review

 

HTC has already kicked off 2013 with a bang by launching India's first smartphone with a Full HD display. This trend will soon pick up pace as Sony gets ready to launch the Xperia Z, followed by Samsung and other OEMs, who'll announce their flagships...

The Butterfly is powered by a more efficient quad-core SoC this time around. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 Pro SoC replaces Nvidia’s Tegra 3 chip and will most likely be seen in their upcoming One handset as well. Coupled with a whopping 2GB of RAM, there’s...

HTC Butterfly 2 ( red)

 

As it's sold only in Asia, the HTC Butterfly series is not as well known as the company's flagship One M8 or midrange Desire family. The Butterfly S did hit US shores as the Verizon Droid DNA , but it was the sole exception.

The HTC Butterfly 2 has almost everything from HTC's One M8, but boots the camera to 13 megapixels. The skin is waterproof, it delivers excellent audio, and it runs on a powerful quad-core processor.

The glossy rear face is a fingerprint magnet. The auto brightness doesn't always correctly adjust to surrounding light, resulting in a too-dim display at times.

It can't compete with the One M8's premium metal skin, but the HTC Butterfly 2's powerful camera and processor make it one of the company's best flagship phones.

HTC Butterfly review: The droid monarch

 

Going by sales in the past year alone, it's easy to forget that HTC still makes some of the best hardware in the smartphone game. Despite the fact that it was the first to release a smartphone with a dual-core Krait chipset, the first to launch a...

Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support; 3G with HSPA; LTE (market dependent) ; 5" 16M-color 1080p Super LCD3 capacitive touchscreen display with 441ppi pixel density; Curved Gorilla Glass 2 ; Android OS v4.1.1 Jelly Bean with Sense 4+ UI ; Quad-core 1.5 GHz...

The Butterfly leaves no doubt about how important it is to HTC to reclaim lost ground in the smartphone game. The device is good-looking, blazing fast, and has the best display in the business bar none. Those are the right boxes to tick if you're after...

HTC DROID DNA review: Champion genes

 

EV-DO/CDMA network support, Quad-band GSM/3G support, LTE network connectivity, 5" 16M-color Super LCD3 capacitive touchscreen with full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) resolution, 441ppi, Corning Gorilla Glass 2, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, planned upgrade to...

No microSD card slot; only 11GB of user-available memory, Non user-replaceable battery, No dedicated camera key, Only available on Verizon, Large amount of unnecessary Verizon bloatware takes up precious internal memory

HTC has ticked all the right boxes with the DROID DNA, creating one of the most attractive offerings currently available on the US market. The combination of the handset's 5" 1080p display and Qualcomm's quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro not only guarantees...

HTC Droid DNA

 

Average smartphone consumers may not remember HTC, but in many ways, it never left us. It's continued to offer top-notch smartphones at competitive prices. For one reason or another, though, the people began favoring the offerings of Apple and Samsung....

1080p screen is best in class ; Fantastic unibody design ; Runs Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) ; Smooth interface ; Great rear and front cameras

Only 16GB of storage (no microSD) ; HTC Sense UI can be annoying ; 1080p screen impacts processing power ; Battery barely makes it a day on moderate use

If the Droid DNA is a glimpse at the phones coming in 2013, sign us up. HTC has managed to cram an amazingly dense 1080p screen into a 5-inch frame and do it without severely harming battery life or processing power. If you’re a Verizon subscriber,...

HTC Droid DNA review

 

Guanine, adenine, thymine, cytosine... Android? The Droid DNA -- the latest addition to Verizon's Droid series -- may not contain any actual nucleotides

Gorgeous display ; Strong performance ; Durable build quality and elegant design ; Unlocked HSPA+ / GSM radios

Short battery life ; HTC removed the microSD slot

With its display, reasonable price and top-of-the-line components, the Droid DNA is our top choice on Verizon's lineup this holiday season.

HTC Droid DNA (Verizon Wireless)

 

The HTC Droid DNA ($199.99) is not a phone, not yet a phablet. But while it occupies a gray area somewhere in between, one thing is certain: This thing is totally awesome. The DNA's 5-inch, 1080p display is the sharpest on any mobile device available....

Incredible display. Top-of-the-line quad-core performance. Sleek, high-quality build

No microSD card slot. Comparatively average battery

The HTC Droid DNA for Verizon Wireless gets you the fastest performance and the sharpest display we've seen on a phablet yet.

HTC Droid DNA review

 

Big phones are getting bigger. This trend doesn't seem to be slowing down in the least, and the new HTC Droid DNA for Verizon Wireless is the latest member of the giant smartphone clan. Priced at $199.99, the DNA has more than just size on its side —...

Screen is best in class ; Thin and light design ; Comes with Android 4.1 out of the box

Battery life is terrible ; Occasional performance hiccups ; Sense 4+ buries much of what is good in Android 4.1

HTC is back on Verizon Wireless in force, but does the Droid DNA have what it takes to stand out?

HTC Droid DNA (Verizon Wireless) Review

 

The $199 HTC Droid DNA makes a convincing case for being the flagship Android device. The 5-inch 1080p display delivers crisp details with accurate color and the quad-core processor provides excellent performance. Plus, the overall design is damned...
