4 Cool Things About the New HTC Droid DNA Smartphone from Verizon - A Teen's Perspective


Want to know what's cool? Ask just about any senior in high school for their opinions on what matters most about their smartphones and you'll likely get an earful. That's what I did to find out what my 12th grader -- who last assisted me in reviewing the Nokia Lumia 822 -- thinks of the new HTC Droid DNA Smartphone that's now available exclusively from Verizon Wireless. 

Here's the top four HTC Droid DNA cool factors in my teen's book

  • Thinness
  • Style
  • Color
  • Features & Functions

At just .38 inch thick this smartphone is super thin and weighs in at a lean 5 ounces. That's a real asset for long distance cyclists like my son who out of necessity travel as lightly as possible.

Look at the image below to see how the HTC Droid DNA (left) compares in thickness to the iPhone 5 (right).

Less boxy in shape than the latest version of iPhone, the graceful contour of the body of this phone fits perfectly into the hand. A huge 5" screen area that improves the viewing experience when surfing the net also makes this a great option for students on the go.

Sleek black with a playful pop of red accents on the sides add another cool dimension to the overall sophistication of this device.

My teen's favorite physical quality of all: A high pixel density, dual camera with an ultra wide angle front facing lens that also shoots 1080 pixels video to capture all those fleeting high school moments flying by the second half of senior year. This smartphone is also mobile hotspot compatible and can support up to 10 WiFi enabled devices perfect for those late night study groups that college bound seniors often engage in.
