HTC Droid DNA is the best phone from HTC in a long while, especially on Verizon. Full reviews of HTC Droid DNA from CNET:
The good: 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 bad: 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.
The bottom line: With quad-core power, 4G LTE, a lonely 5-inch screen, and a stunning design, the $199,99 HTC Droid DNA is currently Verizon’s best Android deal.
