HTC Droid Incredible 2 Unboxing

Considering the other 4G LTE behemoth launching tomorrow with Verizon, some might argue that the HTC Droid Incredible 2 might be overshadowed, but it should still have enough relevance since its brand recognition...

So I have a question. I'm on Verizon and can get an upgrade. The phones I'm looking at are the Droidx2, Incredible2 and the Galaxy s2(might not come out for verizon soon), which should I get. The reason for no 4g phones is because Verizon isn't planning on having 4g anytime soon.

yeah, i would suggest you get the Incredible 2 if you need a phone as soon as a few weeks but otherwise you might just wanna wait because there's still a few unknowns out there that might land in Q3 like the Droid 3 for example.

But you also need to take into consideration Verizon said they would have full 4g coverage by 2013, and the phone you would be upgrading to would be the phone you pretty much would have for the duration of your 20 month contract. Gotta think ahead when buying technology, especially things with contracts. You don't wanna be that guy that comes into my store with an original Droid complaining its not as fast and cool as his friends' phones.

Get the X2. If it has Gingerbread and new Blur, it will be the best 3G smartphone Verizon ever released.

well i'm sure that's good news on behalf of DX owners then. xD i tried out the rooted leaked Gingerbread ROM on my Droid 2 and it wasn't as stable as i'd like it to be so i SBF'd and now i'm waiting for my update, hopefully not for long.

I don't bother rooting my phone, because I've never found any need. I know that it theoretically gives me access to some features that I don't currently have, but it's not worth the risk of bricking my phone to me.

I'm running stock Gingerbread, and apart from the very occasional hiccup, it's done wonders for my phone. I just hope this new Blur isn't a fluke.

dude, google applanet, click on the first link, let it install and when it's done open it and search for z4root, easiest possible way to root, it's just a one touch procedure and you can unroot it via the app internallly as well.

yeah, it's definitely an improvement, my dad has it on his X and i'm so jealous, i'm probably still gonna keep GO Launcher EX over the new Blur when i get the update though.

@ Sailing,

I would recommend, the Droid Incredible2. It has the new Htc Sense ui, front facing camera, you have numerous customzations, new Htc skins , lots of widgets, and video and camera looks amazing.

Good luck!

I have the Incredible S (it's out since a month here in France) and I can tell you it's an absolute piece of beauty. Except for the video recording that is jerky I have absolutely no complain. And yes the battery life is great, I go up to 2 days of normal usage with one charge. It's definitely a good choice if you dont care a bout 4G.

The incredible 2 seems like a decent choice.. Ive been reading alot on the new phones lately. I have no 4g in my area as well, and im also eligible for an upgrade. But the x2 prpbably wont be out for a few months. Im not reading good reviews on the Samsung charge which comes out tomorrow, besides its good screen. so im having the same issue.. IM Itching For A New Phone!!! But, Waste the upgrade now?? Or Save it for a Better phone in a few months, that is what i cant decide.. Good luck

Would you consider getting the HP Pre 3? It should be coming to Verizon.

Just a note for Corporate Users. If your Exchange Administrator requires encryption for your ActiveSync compatible phones, the HTC Incredible 2 has been updated to block the ability for your device to sync, unlike the Droid Incredible (Original). It will go through the initial setup, acknowledge that you may have pin requirements, and indicate that the administrator will be able to remote wipe your device without any prompts to you. It will even take you through the PIN/Password setup, and enforce the lock timer, as well as failed attempts wipe. However after all that is done, you will get an error message "Exchange Policy Error: Unable to sign in to your Exchange account because your policy settings are incompatible with those on your server. Please contact youe (they misspelled it, not me!) IT team for assistance." When you click details it will read "Policy setting incompatible: Device encryption enabled, Require device encryption. Please contact youe (again on the HTC) IT team for assistance."

As always Touchdown is a great solution for Exchange Activesync Enabled users who want to sync Corporate Data on their anDroid devices.

HTC Droid Incredible 2 is an Android based 4G phone and the best camera Smartphone from the HTC circle.http://mobile-store.dell.com/show_category/brands/ htc.html

the Incredible 2 is not 4g capable, so don't be fooled.
