HTC One Is Not Coming To Verizon

Here’s sad news for all Verizon subscribers. HTC’s latest flagship device isn’t coming to your network. “The HTC One will not be available on the Verizon network, but have you seen the awesome, #DROIDDNA?” was a tweet recently made by HTC USA. The rumors that HTC One will be arriving at Verizon proved to be wrong after all.

HTC USA suggested to Verizon subscribers to instead check out the HTC Droid DNA. While the Droid DNA may be an excellent device which some people say is even better than One, it would have been good to have the recently announced Samsung Galaxy S4 and the HCT One compete over at Verizon.

HTC One will be available on Sprint, AT&T and T-Mobile.

The alternative smartphone suggested, which is the HTC Droid DNA, is also an excellent device in its own right. Let’s compare both devices.

HTC Droid DNA Technical Specifications


  • Android OS, v4.1 (Jelly Bean)
  • 5.0 inches Super LCD3 capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors, 1080 x 1920 pixels 441 ppi
  • Quad-core 1.5 GHz Krait
  • Adreno 320
  • 2 GB RAM
  • 16 GB internal storage
  • 8 MP autofocus rear camera with LED flash
  • 2.1 MP front camera
  • 2020 mAh Li-ion battery

HTC One Technical Specifications


  • Android OS, v4.1.2 (Jelly Bean)
  • 4.7 inches Super LCD3 capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors, 1080 x 1920 pixels 469 ppi
  • Quad-core 1.7 GHz Krait 300
  • Adreno 320
  • 2 GB RAM
  • 32/64 GB internal storage
  • 4 MP autofocus rear camera LED flash (1/3” sensor size, 2µm pixel size)
  • 2.1 MP front camera
  • 2300 mAh Li-poly battery

One of the main advantages of the Droid DNA is its much larger screen display which should be a plus factor for people who love devices with big displays. The One however has a much better screen resolution owing to its higher PPI. Other specs are quite similar between both devices with the One having an advantage over the processor, internal storage as well as the camera used.

  1. “The One however has a MUCH BETTER screen resolution owing to its higher PPI.”

    Really? It has a much better screen resolution? Are your eyes microscopic?
    You cannot notice the difference between 720p and 1080p on smartphones with a 4.7 inch display and 1080p is also pointless on a phone with a screen less than 5 inches.
    But I don’t understand why the screen will be much better.
