Android 4.2.2 with Sense 5 Arrives on the HTC Droid DNA, KitKat in Q1 2014

HTC has been quite good about releasing expedient Android system updates as of late. To that end, we’ve recently seen Android 4.4 KitKat updates for both the HTC One Google Play edition, as well as the developer and unlocked version of the OEM-skinned model. Now, the company has shared its KitKat update plans for the HTC Droid DNA.

Close cousin to the HTC J Butterfly, the Droid DNA is HTC’s former flagship a few generations ago, and the first mass market phone available in the US with a 1080p display.  And released a little over a year ago, there’s no reason why the the still powerful device should not get to enjoy KitKat in official capacity. Thankfully, HTC has stated that the DNA will receive KitKat by the end of Q1 2014.

And in more immediate news, Verizon and HTC are now updating the device to Android 4.2.2. The update, which comes in the form of two sequential OTAs (2.08.605.1 710RD and 3.06.605.4) also brings along HTC Sense 5 and various bugfixes. And for those looking to install a pre-rooted version, XDA Senior Member santod040 has you covered.

It’s good to see that despite delays with the Android 4.3 update, KitKat will come to the DNA in the relatively near future. Share your thoughts in the comments below, and don’t forget to make your way over to the HTC Droid DNA forums as well.

There already are many solutions on the Google Play store if you want to send a link to one of your devices -- but what if you wanted to do it quickly without having to install any software or logging in to a website on the recipient end? Most apps require you to do either or both, which can be a hassle (or even a security risk) in some cases. Luckily, XDA Forum Member wyemun has developed CaastMe. Inspired by...

The Witcher Battle Arena: Hectic Multiplayer MOBA Fun

Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...

LG G4 Could Feature a… 3K Display?

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion. While we don't have many details about the sources of this leak, it has apparently been confirmed true by a poster at hardare.fr that gave some more details on model names for each version of the upcoming LG flagship. However, these leaks don't point towards all G4...
