In other words, Verizon would have had to go out of its way to make sure the slot wasn't included. The Droid DNA is a big boy, but there's not really any wasted space. However, some issues have surfaced. It definitely has a premium feel that will appeal to anyone turned off by the more plastic-feeling phones ahem, Galaxy S3. At its thickest point, the DNA measures at 9. In addition to the Droid's good looks, it has the brilliant display and snappy camera HTC phones are known for. Hardware HTC may not be the king of the hill in device sales or financials, but has convinced us that it's firmly planted as the champion in smartphone design. To operate them, we needed a better grip on the DNA than on other phones with more pronounced features. Text and images look fantastic, and this phone was made for watching HD video. Design and feel There are many things you can fault an HTC phone for and we will , but design is rarely one of them. Categorization notwithstanding, I'll bet that for some people, a small phablet or huge smartphone is probably just right. Droid is Verizon's brand, but HTC has constructed a slick looking device with enviable specs and a mammoth high-resolution display. It's tall and relatively slim, measuring 0. Inset within that there's a little light that glows when the phone is charging.

Good luck. Indoors, the battle becomes more even, but overall, your shots will not look as good on the Droid DNA as they will on an iPhone 5.

You may not notice at first, but the red strip on the right side of the phone hides a volume rocker.

Inset within that there's a little light that glows when the phone is charging. Red accents abound, in the ring around the camera, on the earpiece speaker grille, and on the sides of the phone, which have the look of speaker grating, but are just ornamental.

Still, it's only noticeable when you put the phones next to one another, and most people don't set their brightness to max, so neither of these points should matter too much.

This is handier than you'd think, since the Droid DNA supports wireless charging. The entire front of the phone is five inches of glorious display coated with curved Gorilla Glass 2, which is both a pleasure to look at and swipe your finger across.

Still, it's only noticeable when you put the phones next to one another, and most people don't set their brightness to max, so neither of these points should matter too much. The Droid DNA feels comfortable to hold in one hand, like a smartphone, but you can't hold it and drag down the notifications bar using your thumb, like a phablet. Design Remember when a little phone signified a premium handset? If you don't mind going the wired route, a MHL adapter will easily work here in its place. The Droid DNA camera is near the top of its class. Currently, the DNA only comes in one color option: black with red accents. In fact, when you put the two phones next to each other, they look a lot closer in size than, say, the Droid DNA and the Galaxy Note II, which measures a whopping 5. Not bad for a brand new quad-core device. Highs p screen is best in class Fantastic unibody design Runs Android 4. Well the Droid DNA confirms that those days are over - for now, at least. Hardware HTC may not be the king of the hill in device sales or financials, but has convinced us that it's firmly planted as the champion in smartphone design. The company's had a knack for thinking outside the rectangular box and coming up with cleverly built handsets -- the Sensation series and Touch Diamond come to mind -- but it seems to have cranked the focus up another notch this year.
