Conclusion: For those who looking for a new phone: look no further than the DROID Incredible by HTC. For those who are waiting for the new iPhone to be announced, if Apple doesn’t at least meet all (or most) of the features in this device, feel confident in jumping ship with me.
Summary: With its polished design and user interface, and blazing fast speeds, the HTC Droid Incredible takes pole position as Verizon's top smartphone and is now the Android device to beat.
Pros: The HTC Droid Incredible is blazingly fast, thanks to Verizon's 3G network. HTC Sense enhances the features of Android 2.1, and the smartphone features an 8-megapixel camera and 8GB of internal memory. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and 3G are all onboard.
Cons: You can't use voice and data at the same time. The multimedia experience is adequate but still behind the competition.
HTC Droid Incredible Review Roundup. Consensus: It's The Best Android Phone On The Market, Hands Down
12 August 2010
Excerpt: The Incredible review units have been arriving to some of the big sites in the past week, and the embargo is now off. Here I've assembled a collection of the best available review posts and videos, so that you can get the full Incredible experience before committing to a The general consensus is: it's an amazing device, better than anything available in the US right now (Motorola Droid, Nexus One, etc) and yes, you should go get it.
Summary: This is the device that makes you sit back and think "this is everything that the Nexus One should have been." With a 1 GHz Snapdragon processor, 8.0-megapixel camera, 8 GB of built-in storage, and HTC's (fantastic) Sense UI, it literally improves upon the Nexus One in every sense (no pun intended). The phone is snappy, and applications open with fluidity and ease. The only thing that's not incredible about the Incredible is the battery life.
Pros: Stunning AMOLED display, fast 1 GHz Snapdragon processor, 8 GB of built-in storage (finally), and 8.0-megapixel camera.
Cons: Signal strength indicator is misleading; battery life is exceptionally poor.
Conclusion: Verizon Wireless and HTC have a hit on their hands with the Droid Incredible. It's not only a very good Android phone, it's also one of the better smartphones on the market today. Verizon Wireless customers have some really great phone options, and the Incredible deserves to be at the top of the list.
Excerpt: The HTC Droid Incredible: with a name like that, expectations are high for HTC’s latest Android release. It’s comparable to the HTC Desire , but it packs some extra features and it’s the only device of its kind, at least for now, that’s geared for the US market. Meaning, this is the first time we’re seeing Android 2.1 with HTC’s stunning Sense UI on such a powerful device in the States, so that alone certainly has Verizon Wireless subscribers in a frenzy.
Pros: + AMOLED display is excellent
Cons: - Battery cover design takes time to get used to and has questionable build quality
