Samsung Galaxy S4 vs HTC One vs Apple iPhone 5 vs Sony Xperia Z review comparison
HTC Droid DNA hands-on
The Droid DNA has a 5-inch Super LCD 3 1920×1080 screen, giving it a pixel density of 440ppi. This dwarfs the retina iPhone 5’s 326ppi.
The 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor and 2GB of RAM likely deserve much of the credit. But we have some reservations about how those specs, along with the display, will weigh on the phone’s 2,020 mAh battery.
HTC made special note of the Droid DNA’s front camera, an aspect of smartphones and tablets that is almost universally terrible. The Droid DNA uses a 2.1-megapixel model on the front that can shoot 1080p video—still lackluster, but less of a skimp than manufacturers usually force their customers to cope with.
HTC Windows Phone 8X review
It feels like forever since Microsoft announced Windows Phone 8 back in June, but the mobile OS is finally here and with it comes the inaugural volley of compatible handsets. The first one to cross our desks is the global, unlocked version of HTC’s Windows Phone 8X, a device we first saw in September. Unlike other current flagships, this phone breaks the bigger-is-better trend by providing a full set of high-end specs in a relatively compact package — combining a 4.3-inch 720p Super LCD 2 display, Qualcomm dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor and NFC in a sleek and colorful package. Does the 8X have what it takes to carry the Windows Phone 8 torch? Is this a bona fide flagship despite its reduced footprint? Has HTC designed a better handset than its existing Android superphone, the One X?
