If you're rocking the 5-inch 1080p DROID DNA we have some good news. Earlier this week we reported that the folks from HTC have finally finished up the first update for their popular DROID smartphone. Now today we can confirm that the DNA over the air update is rolling out as we speak. More details can be found below for those interested.

The HTC DROID DNA is the first 5-inch 1080p smartphone to grace the US, and it's done so with great success. The smartphone received a glowing review (linked below) from us, and many owners feel the same way about that stunning HD display. All that aside, lets talk about the update which is rolling out as we speak to Verizon users according to multiple tips we've just received.

The update detailed earlier this week is the first update for the DNA, and is mainly fixing a rather large list of pesky little bugs and issues that have plagued the handset. The update will leave you on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, but will bring you to build 2.04.605.2 and is approximately 103.5MB in size. We'd recommend a WiFi connection, or use that speedy Verizon 4G LTE.

With this update there’s tons of fixes to audio quality regarding speakerphone and headsets, WiFi, Bluetooth, mobile hotspot and more. The changelog also mentions “enhanced recent apps functionality has been improved” which is referring to the multi-task feature. Feel free to drop us a comment when you notice what's changed on that front. As usual the update has just begun rolling out so users should start seeing it over the next 24-48 hours. I'd be heading into settings and checking for updates right about now.

    Just updated. The only noticeable change so far is the speed – a huge improvement. Switching between apps is lightning fast.

    Amazingly fast after the update!!! It was really fast to begin with, but now it’s ridiculously fast. Everything else will show with time.
