HTC Droid DNA costs $149.99 at Wirefly, $50 less than at Verizon
The largest US mobile carrier is already taking pre-orders for the smartphone. But before ordering one, you must hear this: the DNA is $50 cheaper at Wirefly. The retailer is asking only $149.99 for the new Droid – new 2 year contract required – and it has also opened pre-orders for it.
$149.99 for a device like the HTC Droid DNA is more than a good price. The handset is the first in the US to sport a 1920 x 1080 pixels display (5 inch, Super LCD 3 with Gorilla Glass 2). Other than that, it offers LTE connectivity, global roaming capabilities, 8MP rear camera with simultaneous image and HD video recording, 2.1MP front-facing camera, 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory, and a 2,020 mAh battery. The smartphone runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with HTC Sense UI 4+.
An alternative to the Droid DNA is the Samsung Galaxy Note II – this also runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, packing a 5.5 inch Super AMOLED display with 1280 x 720 pixels, and a quad-core Exynos processor. However, the Note II is more expensive than HTC’s new flagship Droid, costing $299.99 with a new Verizon contract.
