The HTC Droid DNA is already available via Verizon and it has all chances to dethrone the Galaxy S III, which is considered to be Android King. Every time I talk about this possible revolution, I also note that the Galaxy Note II can as well be considered the main rival of the DNA since the former sports a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen comparable to DNA’s 5-inch 1080p display. But at announcing the Droid DNA the company hurried to say it’s a smartphone and not a phablet. So let’s respect HTC’s standpoint and put it in comparison with smartphones of its class.
Undoubtedly, the key feature of the HTC Droid DNA is its 5-inch display at 1920×1080 pixel resolution. But as you know such touchscreens are said to be battery killers. Though the manufacturer has packed it with a 2020mAh battery, many people were sure it wouldn’t prevent the phone from fast drainage.
GSMArena likes to test different smartphones to find out how they will demonstrate themselves in this or that situation. Battery tests conducted by them are very popular in the mobile blogosphere, so let’s take a glance at the results to learn whether HTC managed to power the most attractive Android phone with a decent battery.
As the source claims, the HTC Droid DNA provides 11 hours of talk time, 6 hours and 40 minutes when browsing the net, and 7.5 hours when watching videos. The overall score was 49 hours, which is a perfect result for a 4G LTE-enabled smartphone.
