HTC DROID DNA takes on the quad-core Android competition

HTC just announced their DROID DNA monster smartphone, but does it have what it takes to challenge the current flagships? The 5″ 1080p is one-of-a-kind at the moment, offering unmatched sharpness. And the Snapdragon S4 Pro is the most powerful chipset in an Android phone right now, though it’s not the only phone to use it. But there are plenty of other variables to consider.

To make the comparison easier, we’ve made a head-to-head table, pitting the HTC DROID DNA against the LG Optimus G and the Samsung Galaxy S III. Check it out!
