We've already gone over the experience between iOS 4 and Android 2.1 with Sense in our Apple iPhone 4 vs. HTC EVO 4G comparison. The only difference that we experienced this time around was how much faster the Droid Incredible acted versus the HTC EVO 4G. While the A4 processor inside the iPhone 4 does allow Apple's pride and joy to run very fluidly, with no presence of any lag, we have to admit the 1GHz Snapdragon processor powering the Incredible does the same for its overall performance. Moving about the Incredible's seven home screens does not pose any issues as everything moves relatively smoothly, so we find the experience to be extremely uplifting.

The notification system with the HTC Droid Incredible is still painfully ahead of what the iPhone 4 presents as you can simply use the pull down the menu to glance at all of the notifications – from updates, messages, and email. This is one aspect where iOS 4 needs some polishing up to do as text message notifications just appear on top of whatever you're doing.

With social networking becoming increasingly popular, we had to go ahead and compare the two in how they offer people the best experience in this category. First and foremost, the HTC Droid Incredible's Sense UI perfectly integrates Facebook from the home screen without having to launch a dedicated application. However, we feel that the iPhone 4's Facebook app is better in terms of presentation and functionality as it meshes well with some of the phone's native apps – like viewing photos and videos. Android's Facebook app is almost a direct port of the site's mobile friendly version and doesn't feel as in-depth as the one on the iPhone 4. Still, you have to hand it to Sense for tightly integrating Facebook into the phone.

People love watching YouTube, and that's the reason why the HTC Droid Incredible shines in this regard seeing that it offers users an app that follows closely to what you experience on a desktop. There are a wealth of sub-menus and options to get you down to all the various aspects we love about YouTube. Additionally you can turn on high quality video streams on the HTC Droid Incredible through any kind of data connection as opposed to the iPhone 4's requirement of connecting to Wi-Fi to experience better quality videos.

The iPhone 4's included front facing camera does offer iPhone 4 owners the option of doing video chat via FaceTime which can be seen as a novelty thing right now, but unfortunately you can only do one-way video chat on the Incredible through Fring. The quality we experienced with FaceTime was far superior to Fring on the HTC Droid Incredible as voices were clearer and in-sync.

There's no arguing that Android's Google Maps experience is far superior to anything else out there – even on the iPhone 4. Not only can you find directions to specific locations, but it aptly integrates some of Google's popular services – like Buzz and Latitude. Unfortunately the iPhone 4 still offers the same exact experience that we have witnessed on the previous versions.

Typing away messages is of little concern to these touchscreen only devices as they tack on some of the most responsive on-screen keyboards around to make the experience satisfying and seamless. The iPhone 4 continues to push the envelope as we find it to be a bit more responsive to the touch, plus add in one of the best predictive text options, there is no reason why it doesn't continue to enthrall us. On the flip side, the HTC Droid Incredible's on-screen keyboard is also quite responsive. After some playing around, both handsets proved to be very good in dishing out a mean text message.

Data and Connectivity:

Seeing that the HTC Droid Incredible just feels a tad faster in almost every aspect versus the HTC EVO 4G, the scrolling experience was close to the level of performance seen with the iPhone 4. On one side we like how text is automatically re-sized for each zoom level on the Incredible, but the Retina Display with the iPhone 4 makes the tiniest of text look extremely detailed. Even though the speed category goes to the iPhone 4 as scrolling and navigating around a page was still smoother, the HTC Droid Incredible does offer a closer desktop experience as it allows for some Flash content to load. Eventually we'll see Flash and all of its glory with Froyo being distributed down the road – hopefully making the HTC Droid Incredible one of the handsets to truly deliver that true to life web browsing experience.

World users will gravitate towards the iPhone 4 just because it's a global enabled phone, whereas the HTC Droid Incredible runs on Verizon's CDMA network and will only work domestically. Even though if you do plan on traveling, both handset are equipped with Wi-Fi to enable you data usage – plus you can use Skype to make phone calls when you're abroad.

If you're a media buff, you may want to chuck the 2GB microSD card that comes preloaded with the HTC Droid Incredible with something more ample – say a 32GB one. On top of that, you can't forget about the extra 8GB of internal storage on-board with the Incredible (of which 6.6GB are available to the user). As much as removable storage can come in handy in certain situations like transferring files, the iPhone 4's choice of either 16GB or 32GB capacities should suffice most people, but you'll always be required to tether it with the USB cable to extract files.


Multimedia:

Looking down into its  music playback capabilities, even after all these years, the iPhone's visually stunning music interface is still regarded as the premier offering. Cover flow continues to be the standard that's always going to be compared to the competition as it makes moving your albums such a breeze to not only your finger, but your eyes as well. While not as spectacular and intuitive, we can't help but notice that HTC Sense's music player also looks pretty good and does a god job in challenging Cover Flow.

Video playback is little of concern to either handsets as test videos ran smoothly with no evidence of any lag. At the same time, there was plenty of lush colors and detail to complete the overall experience – plus the screen sizes are definitely manageable for just about anyone.

The iPhone 4 was the clear choice when it comes to taking photos as they were sharper and filled with natural looking colors. You'd imagine that the Incredible's 8-megapixel shooter might have the edge over the 5-megapixel camera on the iPhone 4, but images were more overcast in most lighting conditions we put it through. In addition, the Incredible's dual LED flash made images look more over-exposed and looked extremely muddy in low lighting conditions.

The iPhone 4's able to shoot video in 720p, while the Incredible is capable of recording in 800x480 – which is still pretty good, of course. Both produced some smooth looking videos, but the iPhone 4's 30fps had a slight edge over the Incredible's 27fps rate. Still, you can't argue that either handsets excel handsomely in this arena.

So if you want to make calls and have a signal, get the incredible. And if you want constant dropped calls and fluctuating signal get the iphone

You notice the iPhone was rated 8/10 and the Incredible got a 9/10? inconsistencies continue..

ya... no mention of the iphones awesome drop call feature by holding it wrong? The single only advantage iphone has over incredible is when you zoom in to tiny text to ready it. and who does that...... anyone...? anyone...? Buehler....? Incredible FTW

" It's not to say that the uninspired design in play with the Incredible isn't a bad thing, but there is no denying that the iPhone 4 has more of an appeal from a quick first glance. " Wow... really iPhoneArena? Care to be any more biased? The 2 phones look almost exactly the f**king same! Give me a damn break!

I agree as well. To me it's like a Ferrari (Incredible) to a Porsche (iPhone4). The both look good, but I like the Ferrari better. P.S. To the editors: on the memory for the Incredible, it's 8GB on board and a 2GB micro-sd card included, not 2GB onboard with an 8GB micro-sd. Otherwise, probably one of the first comparisons that wasn't lopsided biased. I don't agree with "uninspired design". Look at them head-on and I would give it to the Incredible. The sides and the back are a draw for me. The nice thing about the unconventional rear on the Incredible is it doesn't allow the speakerphone opening to be covered, plus I have no doubt the Incredible will take a drop better. Plastic may not look as expensive, but it has some give and transfers shock in a fall. Glass & Stainless Steel, not so much.

the reviewers at phonearena are idiots. if you take angular pictures of two screens and put one phone (phone 1) closer to the camera than the other (phone 2), phone 1 is going to look alot brighter as it is at a significantly lower angle than phone 2. If they wanted to be fair (or atleast decently intelligent) they would have put both phones top to bottom and taken the picture from the sides for horizontal view-angles.

And let me guess, they also edited the pictures to make it look like the picture quality was worse, and took a picture closer to the incredible to make it look fatter? You can believe whatever you want, but the iPhone is CLEARLY the winner in mainly every aspect. Not to mention it's AMAZING app store. You're just mad because you're on verizon, and they don't have an iPhone. otherwise, you'd agree with me.

How do you figure they're biased? if they were, they wouldn't put half the articles about apple on this website, because a lot of them are speaking negative about them. They are just stating the facts. And just because YOU don't agree with them, doesn't make them biased. But I DO agree with you that they are just phones, and people like belayson need to chill out. It's just a review. I'm sick of all these excuses. JUST FACE THE FACTS AND MAYBE YOU GUYS SHOULDN'T BE SO BIASED.

I just switched from HTC Incredible and its an awesome phone, i never had an iphone and i didnt get to great coverage here with verizon at my house so i switched to AT&T, there both great phones, i personally like the iphone 4 better, it looks a lot better, the camera was FLIMSY on the incredible and the back didnt appeal to me.

you know verizon has a data cutoff. unlimited is not unlimited for them either. ive never had a problem with my iphone 3g. but i used to work for verizon. i was in store tech support and so much of their garbage came back all the time. ESPECIALLY their high end data phones. i saw a lot of droids come back cause the hardware cant stand up to the need. the software is cool. the coverage is there. but the phone is made of dog balls.

yeah and in the stores, you also dont know what your talking about either, i work in the call center, and have to clean up the stores mess day after day, and how long ago did you work at verizon? when the palm treo and blackberry with scroll wheel on the side was the options? when their was 5% data base user ratio? please go on little i sheep.. And their is not a cut off for data on a smart phone, it is unlimited, on a data card their was a unlimited plan for 59.99 and yes in the terms their was a soft limit, if you consistently went over it they would send you a letter letting you know of the meant to be usage, since people were networking at home flooding up our broadband usage. but you prolly didnt know that since at the stores you get half the training we do in the call centers.

$29.99/mo IS unlimited data. I have been working for Verizon for 5 years. There is NO cutoff on smartphone data plans. If some magical way there is then I have yet to see ANYONE get charged for going over their Email and Web for Smartphone data plan. You say you "used" to work for Verizon? Probably the reason why its past tense... Couldn't remember your plans so you got the axe.

They never give a verdict becuase of people like you bashing them. It comes down to preference. HTC's Peter Chou has said it for years, that there isnt one phone that is for everyone. We are people and we have preferences and opinions. The iPhone isn't for everyone (as much as you MACtavisits would want the world to believe), and neither is the HTC Incredible (for all you drop-dead VZW lovers). They are two different phones, but they share very similar features that make them direct competitors to each.... Do you think that HTC would have made the incredible now if Apple didn't have the iPhone..? and do you think that Apple wouldn't keep making iPhones if they thought taht they didn't have any competition? they could ahve stopped at the 3Gs, but they know that the market continues to evolve and tastes change... EVERYTHING CHANGES!!!!!! deal with it PA, as a DROID Incredible ADR6300 owner and user, I thought this comparison was awesome. Thanks for the hard work.

well put. they put the comparisons out there and let you decide which one you want to get. if someone is all about the Droid OS, they would get the incredible even if it was 55/45 iphone. same with an iphone user. they prefer the iphone. nobody's opinion is wrong. get what you want and stop telling other people what they should get. plus new phones are going to come out next quarter anyway. no use crying about it

Well said! You summed it up correctly. And unless you own and use both devices on a daily basis like me, you can agree to some of the things they mention. The iPhone definitely has a better build quality, but sense running on top of android is sweeter.

Nicely said, one phone is not meant for everyone. It also comes down to human nature to compete against someone else, it comes down to which side are you on?... I thought the review was comparision was great aswell.

" Aside from its uninspiring design that doesn't compete head-on to the iPhone 4" Editors: do you realize there's a picture right above this statement, showing the two phones looking exactly the same? I lol'd. Check it out, there's a picture of the Inc and the 4 right next to each other looking identical, and in the paragraph below you're going on about how much better looking the iPhone is. Pretty funny. Personally, I think they look about the same. I think the iPhone looks kind of girly, though. I've compared the two phones in real life, though, and they look very similar. ...Except the iPhone's screen is a bit smaller and more boxy.

"The only difference that we experienced this time around was how much faster the Droid Incredible acted versus the HTC EVO 4G" You say that here, but when you compared the Droid Incredible and the EVO you said: "Both devices are super quick when navigating through the operating system, but the EVO had a slight edge when it comes to things like opening applications and loading webpages. Using Quadrant’s benchmark app we ran seven tests on each device and threw out the high and low scores for each, giving us five scores to work with. The EVO was noticeably quicker; the EVO finished the benchmarks significantly faster than the Incredible and on average the results for the EVO were 18% higher than the Incredible. In fact, even if we take the Incredible’s high score and the EVO’s low score (both of which we threw out for our averages), the EVO ran 8% faster (and for those curious if we take the EVO’s high score and Incredible’s low the EVO is an astounding 24% faster.)" So make up your mind phonearena, or are you just having too much fun being apple fanboys?

So what I got from this video is that they are comparing the iPhone 4 to and already outdated phone and calling them comparable. With the onslaught of the Motorola Droid X I think the next review will be largely in favor of the Droid X. Dont get me wrong. I think the iPhone is beautiful and has nice features but I did get the chance to play with a Droid X and it will be my next phone. It truely is amazing. You have to see it to believe it! I showed it to an Evo user and the first thing that went through his mind was. "I wonder how much it would be to cancel Sprint?"

i still dont really see any difference between the 200 android "super phones" being released every month. Honestly, if you purchased a nexus one 6 mths ago there would still be no reason to upgrade to a droid X or incredible or any other droid phone. I laugh soo hard when people say stuff like OOOOOOH THAT PHONE IS GONNA BE SOOO GOOD!!!!! meanwhile, its the same as the other 50 or so android phones that came out already... I thought it was a fair review. They are also not the only ones that think so either.

I thought this review was very helpful. Extensive and relatively fair/unbiased. I lean moreso towards the 4. That said, i use open source and see the importance of owning all leading market smartphones. I am a canadian user on FIDO, so by default i use the 4 for most of my daily needs. The day when FIDO starts carrying the HTC, i'm there!
