Galaxy S3 does battle with HTC Droid DNA: Video

Under: HTC, Samsung
By:James | December 5th, 2012

As usual when a new top notch smartphone comes out it eventually gets compared to other top handsets in the mobile space, that is the way of things in the mobile game. The latest high end handset from the HTC camp is of course the HTC Droid DNA, but how does the smartphone stack up against rival device, the popular Samsung Galaxy S3?

Well for those that might be interested in a little smartphone comparison battle, we have a video comparison that pits the HTC Droid DNA up against the Galaxy S3 for your viewing consideration below courtesy of Phone Arena who have also done and in-depth article over on their website if you wish to read it in its entirety.

However, if you prefer to get the article in a visual form you can hit the play button on the video below. Both are very impressive handsets, although the HTC Droid DNA is the newer of the two smartphones and thus sports a more impressive spec sheet.

The Samsung Galaxy S3 and HTC Droid DNA are relatively similar in overall size, and both are easy on the hand, and although the Sammy device is just a tad thinner and lighter than the HTC device it is barely noticeable, and the DNA does offer some cool looking red accents.

When it comes to the display, the Galaxy S3 comes with a 4.8-inch 720 x 1280 HD Super AMOLED with a pixel density of 306 ppi, whilst the Droid DNA sports a larger 5-inch 1080 x 1920 Super LCD 3 screen with a pixel density of 441 ppi, which closer up does give the Droid DNA the edge when it comes to sharpness, and is more viewable in outdoor conditions.

Of course I could continue writing out the comparison differences between these two Android smartphones, but then there would not be any real need for playing the video below. As such I’ll leave it right there so you can head on down and hit that play button to watch the footage and make up your own mind which device can come out on top, if any.

We would however love to know whether our readers would prefer the Droid DNA over the Galaxy S3 so feel free to let us know by dropping us a line to our comments area below.

    Thankyou soooo much for this video, I need a new phone and was hoping to wait for the international version of the droid DNA, but looks like the Sammy is just as good, it has been fantastic to see them side by side, one of the best reviews around! Thanks!

    I own both. The Galaxy S3 was one of the best phone that I’ve ever owned. The Droid DNA was my most recent pickup and it is a absolute BEAST. Comparing the two phones side by side really brings them apart. The GS3 is an amazing aesthetically and has the specs to place it ontop of the smartphone chain. On the other hand, the DNA uses a traditional smartphone design and is therefore more rectangular in shape, however, the edges around the back of the phone are tapered and therefore creates the illusion that its slimmer than it really is,. I’m a fan at that. Love how it sports a Snapdragon S4 Pro which was the main attraction for me, well besides the amazing 1080p screen. I gotta admit, the screen was to die for. The camera on the GS3 was pretty good, however the DNA’s camera bests it. The battery life on the Galaxy S3 does not last a long despite it being a 2100mAh battery, on the other had, the Droid DNA has 2020mAh battery which I have mixed feelings about. There’s much speculation on the DNA’s battery life because it would be large enough to power the DNA’s off the chart specs, however, I found the DNA’s battery to last me through the day. Maybe 12+ hours a day with moderate usage. The GS3 would also last me that long also. In the end, both are spectacular phones with the latest technology, however, I’ve taken a liking towards the DNA because of my big hand and a fancy display with a “V8″ engine underneath, but don’t get me wrong, the GS3 is still a great phone and probably the best phone in the market. Using the DNA for a week now, I’ve accustomed to its size and now it doesn’t feel like a big phone anymore. Next up, Galaxy Note 2.

      I owned the Samsung Galaxy S3 from June 28th 2012 to November 14th 2012. The Galaxy S3 hands down especially in the software and features aspects TRUMPS the HTC DNA real easily. We are starting to reach the point of saturation where their won’t be to much difference in the spec sheet. What’s going to separate manufacturers now will be software and features as well as storage. Samsung can afford to put out a top notch product and won’t skimp on what matters most to the consumer. While HTC skimps in places where they shouldn’t why put out a power house flagship device with NO SD CARD or battery swap out. Samsung will always be android and lead the way. Special note I purchased the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 on November 15th on Tmobile as my second line of service and I can tell you now the Galaxy Note 2 SHITS all over the HTC DNA. Since my purchase the least I have received in battery life was 18hrs with 9hrs of on screen time daily. Today as of December 6th being a heavy user of my smartphone I get 22hrs of battery life with almost 12hrs of on screen usage which tells you how great the Galaxy Note 2 really is. It’s an industry leading device nothing on the market today touches the Galaxy Note 2 with a ten foot pole.
