Droid DNA offers a unique smartphone experience [Michigan Chronicle (MI)]
(Michigan Chronicle (MI) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Say the word clarity, and you'd easily be talking about the Droid DNA by HTC. No, it doesn't replicate or reassemble your genetic structure in any way, though it will change the way you see mobile phones. Hands do wn, the Droid Razr Max HD and the Samsung Galaxy S III are the top phones on the market using the Android OS, however, the Droid DNA has carved a plausible niche of its own: You like viewing content on your phone, but wish for a larger screen Or, you enjoy gaming on the go The Droid DNA. from Verizon Wireless, might fill that void.
It's the first smartpone to utilize a full HD 1080p display (the same resolution as an HD TV). The fiveinch screen is made of Corning Gorilla Glass 2 and also has built-in Beats Audio (from the Dre's Beats line) for music listening that's off the charts. And, in keeping in most of the new phones from HTC, the DNA feels perfect in your hand, takes great pictures, and is visually appealing.
Other key features include:
The camera that delivers fast image capture, great images even in low-light and an easy interface to capture stills and video. With an 8-megapixel f/2.0 wide-angle lens, 5-level automatic flash, backside illuminated sensor (BSI), and superfast autofocus, you'll capture amazing moments without the worry of missing a single one. Instead of choosing between photos and video, HTC VideoPic allows you to capture video and still images at the same time, and by just holding the shutter button, Continuous Shooting takes multiple photos at up to four frames per second to catch all the action. The smartphone also includes a new best-in-class front-facing camera with an 88° ultra-wide angle lens to allow more to be captured in self-portraits or group shots. Auto Portrait makes it easier to take photos of yourself and your friends with a countdown timer so you can focus on your pose and not the shutter button. The front camera, capable of capturing 1080p HD video, also provides for a shaper picture during video chats to share more of your emotion.
HTC Sense 4 + & Jelly Bean
The smartphone offers a wealth of easy-to-use and customizable features made possible by HTC Sense 4+ with Google Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean). The highly sought afforability to personalize features makes everyday tasks easier and less time consuming and puts the most important content front and center. HTC Sense 4+ has a simplified user interface, customizable widgets, and enriched web browsing features such as saving web pages to view later, even when offline.
It also features embedded wireless charging, making it easy and convenient to re-charge throughout the day and drop your phone at the end of the day knowing it will be charged in the morning. With Near Field Communication (NFC), the phone is able to communicate with other phones by tapping them together to share business cards or music playlists.
It appears that Android really is catching up to Apple. Actually, a rumored iPhone 6 couldn't possibly be much better than the Droid DNA.
