Conclusion: The HTC Droid DNA is a terrific phone and should be a top choice for Verizon customers. It has a beautiful display, the best camera on the market and plenty of power for games, movies or whatever you throw at it. For most people, I would recommend the HTC Droid DNA over the Samsung Galaxy S III because of its more useful camera features and less plasticky build quality, but it's a close call.
Excerpt: Quite a few people (myself included) have mentioned the larger size on some of the new Android phones, namely the Droid X and also the HTC EVO 4G. That said, in this case I am referring to the Droid X and will offer a few images to show off the size comparison between that and
The HTC Droid Incredible Review, Clearly Better than the Nexus One
10 May 2010
Conclusion: The HTC Incredible gave me a strange mix of great and terrible battery life in my tests. While 3G talk time was nearly 6 hours (HTC’s specs were actually very accurate here), its 3G web browsing battery life was abysmal. WiFi battery life was considerably better but still not on par with the iPhone 3GS. The 3G data battery life is a bit perplexing and I’m not sure if it’s a side effect of using the Verizon network or simply the reception at my office.
Excerpt: If the Motorola Droid is too much and too expensive an Android phone for you, Verizon now offers an entry level Android phone, the HTC Droid Eris, for half the price ($99 with contract and post-rebate). Even though oddly named for the Greek god of strife, Eris provides anything but.
Excerpt: The HTC Droid Eris might be the little brother to the Droid (made by Motorola), but it’s still a solid phone in its own right. Looking past the fact that it’s been largely overshadowed by the flagship Droid, the Droid Eris is going to be a good pick for any number of Verizon subscribers who want a good smartphone without the size and expense of the Droid.
Conclusion: When everything is said and done, the HTC DROID ERIS is a worthy smartphone, as it has a lot of features packed into a slim and attractive device. The Sense UI makes it unique from the Motorola DROID, as it allows for more customizations, but the lower resolution display and lack of a physical keyboard may keep some from going to it.
Pros: Sense UI customizations, Device feels comfortable in the hand, Good call quality and signal reception, Produces nice looking photos
Cons: Display shows pixelation with text in the web browser, Lag when opening or changing between programs, Not as much talk time as the Motorola Droid
Summary: The HTC Droid Eris has a lot going for it. We love its Sense user interface and slick design. Assuming you don't need a hardware keyboard, the Eris is a better choice than the Motorola Droid for those who want to travel light. If you're already on Verizon, the Eris is the carrier's best smart phone under $100. However, if your contract is up (or almost up) the HTC Hero on Sprint is an even better deal.
Conclusion: I highly recommend you look at the other postings in this series, but I really liked this phone. It is not an easy call between it and the Droid. I still feel comfortable with my comparison of the Droid Eris vs. Droid . Depending on your preferences, one of these two phones may be a clear winner. I still keep going back and forth, but my deep set geek traits leans slightly to the Motorola Droid. But last week it was to the Eris, so who knows what tomorrow will bring.
