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 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...

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.

Editor's Choice!

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)


The first phone to feature a full HD display, the HTC Droid DNA delivers quad-core speed and a very good camera in a one-hand friendly design.

Beautiful 1080p display; Sleek alluring design; Excellent quad-core performance and graphics; Wireless charging capability; Fast and sharp camera

Recessed power button; Unnecessary port cover; No microSD expansion or removable battery; Sense not as innovative as Samsung TouchWiz

Click to EnlargeThe $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...

HTC Droid DNA (Verizon Wireless)


The new Droid DNA is the best phone I've seen from HTC in a long while, especially on Verizon. With its blazingly swift quad-core processor, and a gorgeous and eye-grabbing 5-inch screen, not to mention a great camera and long battery life, the Droid...

The beautifully designed HTC Droid DNA features a quad-core processor, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, 4G LTE, a sharp 5-inch screen, an excellent camera, and long battery life.

The Droid DNA's large size makes it tricky to fit in tight pockets, and it lacks both an SD card slot and a removable battery.

With quad-core power, 4G LTE, a lovely 5-inch screen, and a stunning design, the $199.99 HTC Droid DNA is currently Verizon's best Android deal.

HTC DROID DNA preview: First look


HTC is having a hard time competing at the highest level of the smartphone market lately, but its latest smartphone might be what was needed to turn the tables. The all-caps name of the HTC DROID DNA is, for once, well deserved as this is certainly one...
