It has been difficult to know exactly what to make of HTC recently. The company has been touting success with the One, and is turning decent profits after months of underperforming, but today we learned…
Looking for a good deal on a high-end Android handset? Wirefly and Amazon are both offering the HTC Droid DNA for just $50 with a new two-year agreement.
This is pretty much a steal for those that don't mind locking themselves into a contract with Verizon. Unfortunately the $50 promotional pricing is only for new customers, so for Verizon subscribers looking to upgrade, you will have to pay $99. Either way, that is better than the $200 you'd have to pay to get the phone directly from Verizon.
For those that need a refresher on the hardware, the Droid DNA is powered by a quad-core Qualcomm S4 Pro with 2GB of RAM. The device also has an impressive 1080p 5-inch display with 440PPI. Other specs include 16GB storage, 8MP back cam, 2.1MP front cam, LTE, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, GPS, wireless charging support and a 2020mAh non-removable battery. As for the OS, you get Android Jelly Bean 4.1.1 with HTC Sense 4+.
If you hate the idea of being locked down to a contract or paying more in the long-term, this likely won't interest you. Still if contracts don't bother you, this is a whole lot of phone for not much money upfront.
