HTC DROID DNA unboxing and initial hands on review [Video]

Earlier this year when HTC released the One X, many fans on Verizon wondered why it didn’t land on Big Red. Instead, all they got was the DROID Incredible 4G LTE, which wasn’t even a One S variant. Well patience is a virtue because HTC delivered in a major way. They said they wanted to make the ultimate DROID, and from my vantage point, they did and then some. The DROID DNA is a complete beast inside and out. It features a gorgeous 5-inch (1920 x 1080) Super LCD 3 display at 440 ppi. If that’s not enough to make your jaw drop, throw in a 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU, 2GB of RAM, an 8MP rear camera with ImageSense, 2.1MP front facing camera with an 88 degree wide angle lens, 16GB of internal storage, 2020mAh battery, NFC, 4G LTE with worldwide GSM capability, Beats Audio, and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and you have what might be the finest phone on earth. Oh there’s still more because the design of this phone is absolutely superb in every way from the polycarbonate back to the Ferrari-like red finish along the sides. I will do a more thorough review in the coming days, but for now, check out my initial hands on video after the break.
