HTC teases the HTC DROID Incredible 4G LTE
until July 12th when the Samsung Google S III is expected to launch. Verizon, quite understandably, has to price this device below the $199.99 that the 16GB model of the Samsung Galaxy S III will be going for. That is why the expectations are for a $149.99 for the HTC model with a 2-year contract and a $50 mail-in-rebate. There are plenty of fans of the HTC Incredible line and we're sure that they will be all over the device, which is the third iteration of the model.

50 more dollars can get you the Galaxy S3, come on AT&T are selling phones for 50-99 dollars. I'm not saying this is a crappy device but it's no One X and should be 99 at best.

the only phones that AT&T sells that are comparable to the Droid Incredible 4G LTE are the One X and the Galaxy S III both of which are $50 more than the Incredible. it's really just fine at $150. have a problem with it? that's why there's Amazon and Wirefly.

While the Droid Incredible 4G LTE may not be quit on par with the Galaxy SIII's specs, there is a market out there for people who do not want a screen that is as big as the SIII. I'm sure there will be plenty of people who are happy to have a device that has pretty decent specs while in a smaller phone because nowadays it's hard to find.

I hope this phone comes out within my Rezound return period (great phone but I want that new Krait) as I like the idea of a 4" screen with qHD SLCD 2.
I know the battery life will be good since my Rezound is decent as it is. The shell HTC uses feels nice to hold and the earpiece volume is usually loud on verizon htc devices. I hope they wont push the release date back further.

Shouldn't push it back further unless some stupid Apple patent trolling causes it. If you like the Rezound, you will love the INC4G. I love my Rezound, and as an agent, I would have to pay retail for the INC4G. I don't see it being worth that to me, but if you can make it happen, you won't be disappointed by the INC4G.

rezound screen still is better because its 720p and the s3 processor isn't that noticiable with ics
11. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5685; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
the 275dpi of the Incredible is still quite respectable and if ICS can make an S3 less noticeable imagine how it is with more powerful chipsets. never settle for less unless there's a justifiable trade-off. S4 vs. S3 isn't justifiable.
12. JC557 (Posts: 1239; Member since: 07 Dec 2011)
It's certainly better than the QHD on my Bionic and shouldn't be too far behind the Rezound. Besides, the S4 proc w/ ICS and 4" screen is what got me hooked. I'm very happy with the Rezound though and ICS isn't too far behind... Decisions decisions.

well the other thing is the Rezound won't get Sense 4.0 like what the Droid Incredible 4G LTE comes out of the box with, it'll get Sense 3.6.
14. dmckay12 (Posts: 243; Member since: 25 Feb 2012)
People who know that there is a difference know that sense 4.0 roms are easy to come by. It isnt the solution for all, but sense 3.6 is nice too. Also, the screen is so nice it is rediculous. But, with my perscription, everything is noticably bigger than it is to other people, so I notice the difference more.

then by all means enjoy your Rezound but the Incredible still has the trade offs in favor.
16. dmckay12 (Posts: 243; Member since: 25 Feb 2012)
I see your point, and the Incredible will be a great phone, but if I had a choice of phones on Verizon a month from now I would probably still choose the Rezound (due to the size, weight, look, feel, and more). I know you prefer the Razrs. Everyone is different. Some people even like iPhones even though (spec-wise) they cant really compare with some android models.

Buy the Rezound...its 79 and I dont see any big difference between the two phones plus you will pick up a pair of Beats buds with your 79. Just my take HTC hasnt released any noteworthy phones to date on vw..Thunderbolt. Rhyme. Incredible 1 and 2. Rezound so I am confused at the big news that they are antipating on the release of the Incredible LTE
18. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5685; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
it's not worth it. the Incredible is substantially more powerful. my Razr in terms of power fits well in between the two if that gives you any indication. the only Beats Headphones that are really worth going out of the way for are the over-ear ones. my Skullcandy Heavy Medals are better than any Beats ear-buds and i got mine for $50 with shipping included. besides the Incredible will have the support for Beats as well.
19. bubbadoes (Posts: 567; Member since: 03 May 2012)
How do u figure more powerful..the rezound is 1.5 and the Incredible is 1.2..almost the same specs as the Thunderbolt that came out over a year ago....This phone is a non starter witj the arsenal thats forthcoming and currently out there. Doesnt even come close to The Razr series.
20. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5685; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
all you're doing is counting numbers. it's the technology behind it all that matters. the S4 in the Incredible brings a whole new core architecture that's built on a 28nm manufacturing process, dual-channel memory and NEON support among other things, it makes it so, so, so, much more powerful and power efficient than the S3 in the Rezound. even at 1.2GHz vs. 1.5GHz the Incredible slaps it so hard to the ground that the ground shakes from it. the Thunderbolt uses a wayyy older single core S2 processor, it doesn't even compare to the S3 and the S4. technically the Incredible 4G LTE is more powerful than the Razr, the only thing on Verizon that's more powerful is the SIII but barely.
