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.
Conclusion: Before we wrap up, there are two things that haven’t yet been addressed; one good, and one bad. We’ll start with the bad: unlike its very close cousin the HTC J Butterfly, the Droid DNA doesn’t have a microSD slot, which means you’re stuck with the 11 GB of usable internal memory. Why HTC and Verizon left out the microSD slot is a mystery, but its likely that Verizon may want users to opt for cloud-based solutions and therefore require a heftier data plan.
Summary: The Droid Eris is a device I absolutely love, and minus the occasional issue with lag, it's a phone I would carry on a regular basis. It's perfect for the person who wants the Android experience, but doesn't want to spring $200 for the Motorola DROID. Despite a small shortcoming in the battery life department, Sense UI, a 5.0-megapixel camera, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a reasonable price point make it a device worth checking out.
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.
