It’s been two weeks since Verizon launched the HTC Droid DNA – the first smartphone in the US to feature a display with 1920 x 1080 pixels. The largest North American mobile carrier is selling the handset for $199.99 on contract, or $599.99 sans agreement.
Wirefly had offered the Droid DNA for just $149.99 on contract since the beginning, and now Amazon has started doing that, too. So if you prefer the latter retailer, and you’ve been searching for the best deal on Verizon’s new smartphone, you can go here at Amazon Wireless to get it for $149.99. The bad news is that the DNA is backordered at Amazon, and will only ship in “1 to 2 weeks.”
Running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean (with Sense UI 4+), the HTC Droid DNA features LTE, global roaming capabilities, 1.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, Beats Audio technology, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, 8MP rear camera, 2.1MP front-facing camera, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal memory (non-expandable, as there is no MicroSD card slot). The handset is 9.7 mm thin, weighs 141 grams, and comes with a 2,020 mAh battery.
Another 1080p Android Jelly Bean smartphone that should be available soon in the US is the Oppo Find 5. This, however, will not be compatible with Verizon, but with AT&T and T-Mobile, and it’s going to be sold unlocked (for $499.99).
