htc one verizon

Well, Verizon and HTC have held true to their promise after all. They said the HTC One would be coming to Verizon before the end of the summer and today they made it official. Next week, on August 22nd, the HTC One will finally be available on Verizon for $199.99 with a new 2 year contract– just in time for a last-minute upgrade before school starts.

For those who don’t know, the HTC One is one of the best phones available today. It’s got a beautiful all metal design, super fast quad-core processor4.7 inch 1080p HD screenAndroid 4.2 Jelly Bean, an IR blaster (for using this as a TV remote), HTC’s new ultrapixel camera, and built-in Beats Audio support with dual front speakers for incredible sound. If you’re looking for a new phone today this is a pretty great option.

Of course, with phones like the Moto X, Droid Maxx, iPhone 5S and Galaxy Note 3 rumored to be coming to Verizon in the not too distant future, it may be worth waiting a couple more weeks before signing that new 2 year contract.

Yesterday we covered some of the best new and upcoming phones coming to AT&T and now it’s Verizon’s turn.

For most of 2013 Verizon has been pretty quiet on the new phones they’ve launched. I mean, the only big phones they’ve released so far are the BlackBerry Q10 and Samsung Galaxy S4. But that all looks to change very soon. If you’re on Verizon and have an upgrade coming up sometime over the next couple of weeks or months these are some of the best phones either already at Verizon or rumored to be coming to a Verizon store near you very soon. The last thing you want is to go out and buy something only to really regret it a week later.

While not everything here is confirmed to be coming to Verizon (some are just our best guesses based on rumors we’ve been hearing), here are five phones you should be excited for if you have an upgrade coming up.

Verizon Announces The HTC Droid DNA– This Is The New Top Droid

htc droid dna

As expected, Verizon and HTC this announced their latest and greatest superphone, the Droid DNA. There were a lot of crazy rumors about this phone over the last few weeks, and well, it looks to live up to all of them.

At a size that is just slightly larger than the Samsung Galaxy S III, HTC and Verizon have seem to have packed in here everything you could want in a 2012 top of the line smartphone: a quad-core 1.5 GHZ processor with 2 GB of RAM (so everything runs fast and smooth on here), Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with the latest version of HTC Sense, an 8 megapixel back camera with a second 2.1 megapixel front camera for HD video chats, 16 GB of built-in storage (though unfortunately no microSD card slot for adding more), support for NFC (so you can do things like share pictures just by tapping phones) and wireless charging, built-in Beats Audio (with some updates so that your music will sound better even when playing at the maximum volume), and support for Verizon’s 4G LTE network. The greatest part about this phone however is the screen.

The Droid DNA packs an unbelievable 5 inch Full HD 1080p screen. As strongly rumored as this was, that it’s actually here is pretty insane. Basically, this has the same amount of pixels as the average 40-50 inch HDTV, but in this much smaller design. This means that anything and everything– games, pictures, books, Facebook updates, Tweets, text messages– will look absolutely amazing on here. 

The Droid DNA will cost $200 when arrives in Verizon stores next Wednesday, November 21st. If you really can’t wait to make this your next phone, you can pre-order it now from Verizon’s site which as of this writing has a promised ship date of Monday, November 19th.
