Would you want this red HTC Droid DNA?

Check this out. We’re looking at a special edition HTC DROID DNA made for Verizon employees in a special red color scheme. And it’s very red, indeed. Each handset is numbered and stamped “Verizon Employee Limited Edition,” and that’s exactly why regular customers won’t be able to get their hands on one.

But would you want one? It’s the same great phone, which reviewed and named quite possibly HTC’s best Android device ever, only with a new paint job. Personally, it’s a bit loud for me. But it might just be someone else’s cup of tea.

    I sure wouldn’t throw it away!!!

  • Scott

    I’d grab one..

  • Tim242

    Different color, same battery. Neither are good.

  • DavidVarghese

    Maybe if it had a bigger battery.. but I like the color

    • Aluminum54

      Battery on my DNA lasts over a day… the mAh doesn’t mean too much if they figured out how to use it – which they finally have on this one

      • DavidVarghese

        Thanks to that processor and light usage.. My day lasts a little longer than 6 hours and I use my Evo LTE a lot..

  • Tso

    Im an employee i bought one.. You just cant beat the price… And the red to me is nice… Symbolizes vzw of course…. But 99$ is a steal…. With a wireless charging pillow

      You looking to sell? O_o

    • DavidVarghese

      Say bro, hook me up with one of those!

    • OMFCody

      There’s a number of these posted up on ebay! :)
      I’m praying the red version arrives when the global version FINALLY comes. If not the white one better have a white digitizer.

  • pr0xidian

    I work for t-mobile and we don’t have limited editions for employees. Although if we did my galaxy note 2 would be pink! :P

    • http://twitter.com/gamercore Chris Chavez

      I thought T-Mobile employees got a black One S?

      • Aluminum54

        Black is available online to customers – just not in [all] stores

  • No_Nickname90

    Anything other than black or gray or white would be nice. I’m tired of these monotone colors. That’s also why I like Nokia. The only phone company that seems to know people like phones other than neutral colors.

    • Aluminum54

      Nokia = Windows Phone… I’m pretty sure the HTC Windows Phones comes in some crazy colors too – I think it’s just a windows thing right now – I agree tho – I wish more companies would do colors… but nobody is going to care until Apple does it since they invented it ya know

  • Andy_in_Indy

    I am more partial to earth tones.

  • nwd1911

    I like it, but a voting poll would be interesting to see on this one.

  • TechGuy22

    ewww VZ logo
    no thanks

  • scoter man1

    I’d take it, and then switch carries so I can cancel my N4 order because Google can’t figure out how to launch a product.

    2.5 weeks and counting….

  • koolkat2

    Make it a J butterfly and we’ll talk

  • DavidB23

    Only if it comes with a larger battery and brighter screen.

  • NightAngel79

    Little too red for me.

  • uscgamecock

    Not unless it has a removable battery and increased storage.

  • Faiz Abideen

    To be honest, the accented red is much nicer. But this might be okay for some I guess….

    *Droid DNA with a red back

  • Jaden Keuten

    My Galaxy S III is red, but not that red.



  • Tristen

    I just got my standard Droid DNA today, I love it.

  • http://www.facebook.com/matthew.wiechert Matthew Wiechert

    Note 2 or bust..

    • Marsg

      in terms of performance this thing is as beastly as the note 2. it depends on which features you would rather have, a 1080p display with better sound quality and slightly better camera or the s-pen with better battery life. wish all those features could be on one device.

    • bluegreen343

      Me too. my contract ends in January:-)

  • bluegreen343

    it looks awesome. definitely want :-)

  • http://twitter.com/matthewtoomey Matthew Toomey

    Need more cow bell. Honestly, the red will be covered by whatever case you put on it.

  • Kaostheory

    How come nobody knows if this phone is ip57 rated (water and dust resistant) like the butterfly J?

    • Tony Lai

      No, it’s not IP5/7 rated like the Japanese J Butterfly.

  • C-Law

    Too loud for me. Also I don’t really like red. But if employees can get it for 99, I’d definitely get it no matter what color. Just get a case

  • Rampage1

    I would love to have this phone in red really awesome phone and from all the reviews I watched the battery is more than enough to get through the day.

  • Patrick

    Yes wish that more phones will choose more than white and black

  • Tony Lai

    Who wouldn’t want a Droid DNA for being the off-the-roof spec smartphone of 2012. Only negative part is the lack of microSD and possibly the device being too large for some.
    I personally really want one of this, any color, it doesn’t matter!

  • warcaster

    I want a blue one!
