Summary: New Droid. HTC offers a new mainstream smartphone with a bright Full HD display and a Snapdragon S4 Pro SoC. The technology of the Super LCD 3 display was already convincing in the review of the larger sibling HTC One, but we also have a closer look at the other components...
Pros: Great display, High color accuracy, Full HD, Good build quality, Application performance, The vibrant display and the good build quality look as if they were made out of one piece. The Droid DNA is comfortably in the hands despite its large 5.0-inch display.
Cons: Mediocre camera, Limited storage without expandability, Average battery runtimes, Non-removable battery, High price, The internal storage is not very generous with 16 GB. A micro SD slot for expandability would have been nice.
Summary: The Butterfly takes it all to the next step. Why you should consider buying this phone is for the brilliant 1080p HD display, the excellent build quality and the blazing fast performance. Equally, do consider that the battery life will just about get you through a day under medium usage load conditions. We were surprised to find the Butterfly's camera was inferior to the very good clicker on the One X+.
Pros: Blazing fast performance, 1080p HD display is unmatched, Excellent build, Solid water resistance ratings, Well thought out ergonomics, Updated HTC Sense a refreshing change, Acceptable battery life, under most usage cases
Cons: Surprisingly disappointing camera, Confusing SIM tray mechanism, All the goodness costs a lot of money
Summary: Going into this review, I had the Galaxy Note II still on my mind, as should be obvious from the myriad of comparisons to the device within. For some, this will cause frustration, as they expect every device to be reviewed in a vacuum of sorts. Just as when people complained that the iPhone was always mentioned in Android device reviews back before Android was dominant, people seem to dislike it when one phone is compared too much to another in a review.
Conclusion: Slithering its way out of nowhere, surprisingly enough, we have to admit that HTC has a winner in the DROID DNA. Right now, it’s rather difficult to stand atop of the crowd knowing that you have other venerable smartphones out there to compete against, but HTC is able to head into the crucial holiday season knowing they have a standout contender.
Pros: Stunning detail with its 5-inch 1080p display, Svelte profile & lightweight, Takes sharp looking photos & videos, Better 4G LTE signal
Cons: Insufficient 16GB of memory with no expansion, Not enough enhancements with Sense 4.0+, Indistinct power button & volume control
Excerpt: Новый Droid. HTC предлагает новый мейнстрим-смартфон с ярким Full HD дисплеем и процессором Snapdragon S4 Pro. Задействованная в дисплее технология Super LCD 3 уже успела нас впечатлить в обзоре старшей модели, HTC One, но к остальным компонентам Droid DNA тоже стоит присмотреться.
Excerpt: Şu sıralar amiral gemisi One ile gündemde olan HTC, geçtiğimiz yıl duyurduğu modeli Butterfly'ı gecikmeli de olsa ülkemize getirdi. Dünyanın ilk FullHD 5 inçlik ekrana sahip telefonlarından bir tanesi olan Butterfly, daha önce satışa sunulsaydı, belki de şimdiki gibi HTC One'ın gölgesinde kalmayabilirdi. Öyle ya, HTC One, birçok konuda Butterfly'dan daha gelişmiş bir telefon. İki telefonu karşı karşıya getirdiğimiz anları, aşağıdaki inceleme videomuzda görebilirsiniz.
Pros: Çok güzel, ince ve kullanışlı bir tasarımı var, 5 inçlik ekranı çok güzel görüntü veriyor, Kamera performansları gayet iyi
Cons: Arka kapağı çizilmelere karşı dayanıksız, microSD kart yuvası bulunmuyor, Ülkemizde çıkış için biraz geç kaldı diyebiliriz
