The DROID DNA is a phone I have little trouble recommending to most people, even if I can't say it's my very favorite piece of hardware out there. A 5" 1080p display, quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, great build quality, Verizon's near-ubiquitous LTE coverage - there's a lot to like about this phone. At $200 on contract, I might even say it's kind of a good deal already. But that wasn't low enough for Amazon. After dropping to $150 on contract back in December, Amazon has slashed another $50 off the DNA's price tag for new customers. You can pick one up for just $99 if you're a new Verizon subscriber, and if you're upgrading, the price remains a reasonable $149.
Amazon just did some price slashing on a scale we rarely see, cutting costs for all sorts of new smartphones across the board. Hit up the list to see what's up for grabs. All of these deals are for both new customers and upgrades.

DROID DNA (Verizon) - $149.99 ($50 savings)
The DROID DNA is HTC's latest DROID creation in collaboration with Verizon, and it's also the first mass-market 1080p smartphone in the US.
Just a quick reminder, the HTC DROID DNA is available starting today (November 21st) at a Verizon near you. HTC's latest addition to the DROID lineup is packing a 5" 1080p display, quad-core Snapdragon S4 pro processor, 2GB of RAM, LTE, NFC, and various other adjectives. And at $199 on a two-year agreement (less if you head to Wirefly), it's not a bad deal. Our review will be going up today, so be on the lookout.
By the way, Verizon decided having the phone unlockable via the HTC Dev site wasn't something they were so hot on, so you can't do that anymore.
If you're looking for the latest and greatest on Verizon, chances are you're curious about the DROID DNA. While we'll have our review up some time in the next week, if you can't wait, pre-orders are live on Verizon right now. But paying full price on a new, on-contract phone? That's for chumps, am I right?
Luckily, Wirefly also has the DNA up for pre-order - $150 on a new subscriber agreement or upgrade. That's 50 bucks less than Verizon. And considering this phone is insanely powerful, that's a pretty great price. As a reminder, the DNA is packing a 5" 1080p display - the first ever on a widely-sold smartphone, a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 2GB of RAM, and Verizon's 4G LTE.
