I have some pretty awesome news to share! The Verizon Wireless team has asked me to come back for another term as a Verizon Ambassador. After sharing details on the cool DROID INCREDIBLE 4G LTE by HTC in the past few months, now I get to try out a brand new device…the DROID DNA By HTC 4G LTE.
Right out of the box I was in awe of the screen size. It’s huge! The phone has a 5 inch, 1080p HD screen made of Corning® Gorilla® Glass 2. Both the front and back cameras take incredible photos with amazing resolution. The front facing camera also has a wider angle than most phones to capture more people and background in self–portraits. I tested the front camera and had wonderful results snapping a pic of the family while celebrating my husband’s birthday. Check it out! All four of us are in the picture with plenty of room for cropping out my laundry room in the background. Using the self timer I was able to get the perfect shot of everyone smiling and we are all in focus! Score!
The rear facing 8 megapixel HD camera allows shooting up to four photos per second, and both cameras take 1080p HD video. I won’t miss any of the action of our nightly dance parties in the kitchen or sliding playground action. Speaking of video, one of the coolest features of the Droid Incredible was being able to snap photos simultaneously shooting video. The Droid DNA also has this feature but one ups it by allowing to take still pictures after the fact. While watching a previously recorded video and see a pic you want to capture as a still, just snap and there you have it.
Mind = Blown?
Yeah, me too.
But wait…check out this photo I took in the dark. Yes, the dark. I used the built in sepia filter and the flash did go off, but look at the clarity of my sweet baby boy sleeping. I could not believe the shot I captured. I think it’s pretty impressive for a novice photographer like myself.
The Verizon team also included a sweet surprise with the new phone…an Otterbox Defender case! Wahoo! No more worrying about carrying around a naked phone. I have an Otterbox case on my current phone and I adore it. I feel secure knowing the phone is protected. My kids play with my phone all the time. More than once, a downloaded app has allowed me to finish my dinner while out to a restaurant with the family. I’ll be sure to share some more details about the Otterbox Defender case in the next post.
Like last time, the Verizon Ambassadors were treated to an educational webinar to provide some enlightening tips and tricks about our new devices. The webinars are such a valuable wealth of information, not only about the device, but also in aiding the Ambassadors to quickly get comfortable with the new phones. I can’t wait to share many more details in the coming months with you about the DROID DNA By HTC 4G LTE. It’s definitely going to be another adventure for sure!
What is the one app on your smartphone that you can’t live without?
Disclosure: I was selected to participate in the Verizon Wireless Ambassador Program. I was provided with a wireless device and three months of service in exchange for my honest opinions about the product. Stay tuned as I continue to share more cool features on DROID DNA By HTC 4G LTE in the coming months.
