You all should know I’m a gadget geek, last week I attended HTC’s announcement for its newest smartphone, DROID DNA. I’ve been playing with the smartphone for a week now and I must say I’m quite in love with the 5-inch 1080p Full HD super LCD 3 display with Gorilla Glass 2, it’s super crisp, bright and not easily scratched. Aside from the amazing HD display, the phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core 1.5 GHz processor, 2GB of RAM and HTC Sense 4+ with Android Jelly Bean. And it’s on America’s fastest 4G LTE network. Verizon’s 4G LTE is seriously impressive, super fast, I feel like it’s even faster than my home internet.

The design is sleek and it’s really thin and light. I’m not going to specify all the tech specifications (you can read it after the jump) but the key features includes audio by Beats by Dr. Dre featuring 2 built-in amplifiers, impressive camera resolution for front and back but most importantly for those that like taking self-portraits it has a 2.1 Megapixel with f/2.0 88-degree Ultra-Wide-Angle Lens so if you’re taking a group shot no one will be cut out! This device also allows wireless charging if you buy the accessory, pretty cool.
