HTC Droid DNA is a new phone introduced to the Smartphone world on Nov. 21 in collaboration with Verizon wireless.

There are one or two features that are missing in the Smartphone when compared it with Samsung's Galaxy S3 which doesn't mean that Droid is lower but let us compare Droid with S3 to give the final verdict which is the best.

  • Processor: Droid DNA works on 1.5GHZ Qualcomm MDM615m/APQ8064 quad-core Krait processor but Galaxy S3 has a 1.5GHZ Qualcomm MAM 8960 dual-core processor. As you know HTC DNA wins here.
  • Display: Droid DNA owns 5-inch LCD3 display with 1920 x 1080 screen resolution and 441ppi features whereas S3 holds 4.8-inch AMOLED display with 1280 x 720 and 30ppi. The Droid's display brings the world of display to a newer level ultimately putting S3 down.
  • RAM and Storage: HTC DNA has 2 Giga Byte of RAM and 16 Giga Byte on internal storage. But S3 outruns here by having 2 Giga Byte RAM and 16/32 Giga byte of internal storage and can be expandable up to 64 Giga Byte with microSD. S3 wins!
  • Camera: HTC has an 8MP rear cam with auto focus and LED flash light and 1080p HD video capture. In front it has 2.1MP camera. S3 also holds an 8MP camera at the back with LED flash 1080p HD video recording and 1.9MP front-facing cam. You are right! HTC wins.

  • Operating System: Droid DNA is designed to hold Android 4.1 Jelly Bean as it's OS which can be upgraded to 4.2 JB also it has HTC sense 4+. The galaxy S3 also runs on 4.1 JB and can be updated to 4.2 with Samsung's TouchWiz UI. But HTC should have released 4.2 JB first as it's newly released phone. Scoring is given to the reader.
  • Dimensions: Droid DNA measures 141 x 70.5 x 9.7 (mm) and weighs 141.7 grams. Galaxy S3 measures 137.2 x 71.1mm x 7.6mm and weighs 133.2 grams. If the user likes lighter phone S3 is the best. Voting given to reader again.
