Now that the HTC Droid DNA is available from Verizon Wireless, you’re thinking that you may be interested in buying a new phone. But is the Droid DNA the right phone for you? As much as we like HTC phones, we have to admit that there is some good competition out there to choose from. If you’re already on Verizon, the HTC Droid DNA will inevitable be compared to the Samsung Galaxy S III and the iPhone 5.
We’ve compiled the specs for all three phones so that you can make a more informed decision. The specs show that the HTC Droid DNA is the most advanced device in our lineup and the Droid DNA can easily outperform the Nexus 4, but we’ve heard more than a few people voice their concern about the handset’s size. Yes, the DNA is larger than the Apple iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S III, but we can guarantee that the phone feels a lot smaller than it actually is and its 1080p 440ppi display will most certainly capture your heart.
Do you think the HTC Droid DNA is a step ahead of its competitors or do the Apple iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S III have something unique which make them a more appealing choice?
