Like it for the most part, few complaints

By 

from USA

Comments about HTC DROID DNA 4G:

Sleek design. Slim width. Black and red coloring makes it seem fancy. Fits in my hand unlike the SGs which are sort of bulky. I've dropped it several times and never cracked the screen, however I do have a screen protector on it. A friend of mine dropped hers and cracked the screen. Have had thousands of pics/videos before my memory maxed out. Plays videos well and HD picture quality is awesome. I can run videos on it for a couple hours before the battery runs out. Usually I don't get a low battery warning until about 7 at night and that's after playing Candy Crush, Facebooking and watching Netflix and Swagbucks videos. The battery charges fairly quickly, which is nice. The power button is on the top, which I like. I hate when they are on the side. My only complaint is the camera photograph quality isn't all that great. It's awesome in bright light, but in a room lit by a lamp, the pictures come out sort of blurry and dark.

Is not working more often than it actually works.

By 

from USA

Comments about HTC DROID DNA 4G:

I have had nothing but problems with this phone. The call quality is shoddy at best. The phone constantly looses connection with the sim chip. This is a major inconvenience because when the sim chip is "missing" I cannot make/receive calls or texts. I cannot access the internet.

Display/Screen Quality
This is the only good part about this phone. The screen is big and the quality is ok.

Call Quality
Calls do not come in clear.

great phone!

By 

from Trussville, AL

Comments about HTC DROID DNA 4G:

Love my phone. Glad I didn't go with the same 'ol phone as everyone else just because it is the cool thing to have. Very durable...I have dropped many times and still works great with no damage. I totally recommend this phone. This is an easy phone to operate. The screen is a great size. The battery life is pretty good and the phone charges quickly. I have always had an Android and so far I would NEVER change...especially to an iPhone! My husband has one and it does not compare to my Android. Mine is a 4G and is very quick. I can easily pull up an app or go to a website. I very rarely have dropped calls. The only issue I have had is my Outlook email app will pull up but I can't open an email most of the time, or the app won't pull up at all, a message pops up that says outlook has failed and I need to close the app. I finally just deleted the app and now use the Android email app. Works great! Overall...love my phone!

Best Smartphone on Verizon

By 

from USA

Comments about HTC DROID DNA 4G:

I can't explain enough how much I love this phone. Firstly, the entire build is amazing. The phone feels great in hand and is very durable. I have dropped it about 6 times, on hard concrete, carpet and tile, and it still looks like new. The entire phone is snappy and responds to any command immediately. It can handle dozens of apps open at the same time and still no lag. The camera app is fantastic. All my friends have iphones and we use this as our primary method of capturing moments whenever we're together, either by picture or video. I highly recommend it.

Battery Life
It dies a bit too fast because of the 4G but it lasts for about 10 hours with moderate use.

Display/Screen Quality
It's a gorgeous screening, especially with the brightness turned all the way up.

Call Quality
It is so crisp.

Ease of Use
There's a bit of a learning curve for newbies but android gets pretty simple.

Durability
. I have dropped it about 6 times, on hard concrete, carpet and tile, and it still looks like new

Design
The design is simple and brilliant.

Quick

Comments about HTC DROID DNA 4G:

The Droid DNA is one of the fastest phones on the market, even though it came out a little over a year ago. The quadcore processor used allows for flawless switching between apps or other phone features with no lag. Even after weeks of use without restarting, the phone doesn't slow down, which is quite impressive. The screen is one of the best of any phone available, with the colors extremely vibrant and crisp. The camera is a standard 8 MP camera, but it delivers quality photos and excellent 1080p videos. The only real downside of this phone is the battery life. It isn't unbearable (needs to be charged basically once a day); however, it is slightly worse than desirable. If you use it all day (texting, calling, apps), it will likely be down to about 30% or less by 11 pm that night. Again, not too terrible, but definitely a little bit of a con for the phone if you don't want to have to worry about charging the phone every night.

AMAZING Phone

Comments about HTC DROID DNA 4G:

The best phone I've laid eyes and hands on... hands down! We all know that phones progress with time, but normally this is a gradual gain. The DROID DNA is leaps and bounds and miles ahead of other Android devices.

A big part: Sense 4+ that makes it great. Another part is the advanced, up-to-date version of Android: 4.1.1. And there's the various hardware aspects that just bring it all together. Truth be told, it's the the combination of everything mentioned that takes it above and beyond.

I tend to favor the hardware most. Never have I used a screen so crisp, plus the overall device size is perfect for my slightly larger hands. While the device is "lightweight" it maintains a good, solid feel. Plug in some headphones and Beats audio completes the user experience.

The DNA also offers the battery life that users expect and deserve. As a fairly heavy phone user throughout the day, the worst I've seen the battery do is go 12 hours and still have around 20% battery left. On lighter days I'm able to use it for 18 hours and still have 30%+ battery life available.

Good Cell Phone.

Comments about HTC DROID DNA 4G:

The Droid DNA is a good working cell phone with a very good battery life. The camera on the DNA takes pictures that are almost as good as my digital camera. The internet on the phone is very fast.

Battery Life
The battery life on the Droid DNA is very good, the battery will last all day with me playing on it. What I do not like about the battery is that you can not take it out of the phone. With that saying if the battery starts to go you have to get a new phone entirely

Display/Screen Quality
The phone has a very large screen. The quality of the display is very good

Call Quality
The calling quality is average I don't really notice anything awesome about it.

Ease of Use
The phone was easy to learn how to use.

Durability
I have a madix case on my phone and I drop my cell phone all the time and it still works and has no scratches and the screen is not cracked.

Design
I think it is a very nice design. I only wish the phone had a removable battery. I also wish that the phone came with a external memory card slot.
