HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE breaks cover on DroidDoes website
The HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE is the newest addition to the Droid family, just having popped up on the DroidDoes website and thus making its official entry. The teaser page for the Droid Incredible 4G LTE ends numerous rumors by simply confirming them - the device is real and is coming to Verizon Wireless for $299.99 on contract.

It’s a decent device, but seems a bit short on specs for that price. Judge for yourself: it’s got a 0.46-inch thin frame, a 4-inch qHD LCD screen, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor backed up with 1GB of RAM, and an 8-megapixel rear camera captures 1080p video, while there’s also a front-facing VGA shooter, good for video conferencing. All of this runs on the latest Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich skinned up with HTC Sense 4.0.

Unlike in previous leaks, this time NFC is nowhere to be seen. While we’ve been writing this post, the listing has disappeared but you can check out how it looked like in the screenshot below. Will you be getting this?

he's saying the price doesnt make sense. it really doesnt. the device doesnt make sense. i guess it fills a need for anyone that feels the rezound is just too big, but this really isnt that different.

Exactly, I don't know why anyone would buy this over the rezound. I thought about waiting until it came out because I thought it would have nfc. But since it doesn't have nfc its just a lower specced, more expensive phone than the rezound. The only difference being the S4 snap dragon. Why bother htc/verizon? And HTC wonders why they are bleeding red ink. Your customers comment on these articles, how about reading and listening to us?!

Just because NFC isn't listed doesn't mean it's not there. Also, I'd take this over the Rezound based on the S4 alone (although I'd rather not have either). You're right, though, they'll have to drop the price. Even the One X and Evo 4G LTE are going for a mere $200. This seems like a One S that compromised processor speed and screen-size for LTE.

what does screen size have to do with LTE? xD

I'm just saying that the Incredible and One S are comparable, but have their own advantages: the Incredible has LTE, but the One S has a bigger screen and faster processor.

oh the way i read it made it sound like the Incredible gave up on those things for LTE. maaa baaaaaaaad! xD

I waited months for them to announce this phone, only to find out that its SLCD. You're telling me beats audio cost $100? You can get the exact same specs in a better package for cheaper with the Razr. Come on, HTC, you can't skimp on the display.

They aren't the exact same. This has a much better performing processor than the Razr, supposedly better camera, a slightly smaller screen with higher pixel density, different build quality, Super Amoled Advanced display on the Razr against S-LCD, and different user interface. So, aside from the camera and processor, it comes down to what you want. A bigger screen, or sharper text? Moto's UI or Sense? SAA or S-LCD? It might be a better package to you, but personally I would choose this over the Razr due to the better processor, and I like Sense. Though I do like a bigger screen, I can adjust.

this hasn't been confirmed to use the S4 yet and the Razr has/will have a nearly entirely stock build of ICS.

We can only hope for S4... And yes, I know, but I still like Sense better

Loved the first Incredible but held off on #2 because of the lack of LTE. As someone who is fed up with screen-size inflation, I was really looking forward to this version, but specs are surprisingly mediocre for this price level. I also suspect LTE's battery appetite will not be solved until the next generation of processors are unveiled and am not seeing any indication that the Incredible 4G is breaking new ground in this regard.

spot on. it really makes you wonder what the manufacturers are thinking.

I suspect the Incredible 4G will have better battery life than most other LTE devices due to its' smaller screen and new processor, but you are right still, battery will probably still be an issue, just less so.

the smaller screen is of no consequence if it's using the same, high resolution. xD

It does make a difference because a smaller screen means less to light up.

xD i meant a difference that mattered.

It's basically a dumb-downed version of the Rezound for $100 more .

dumb-downed? Its better.... just not that much better. Let's just hope that "1.2Ghz" processor is the S4. If not, I would agree, better options for the start price. This is probably going to go to the people that just love that 4" screen size. The camera will be an upgrade, but not much better than previous models.

The Incredible line needs something new. This just looks boring

18. KingKurogiii

if you want something new then get something new. the Original & Incredible lines are for people that are happy with their styles.

I dont have a Incredible. So i dont need something new. Im just saying that since the droid incredible came out, nothing has really changed. Except the Screen and the processer. Isnt it time for a small make over? Just my opinion.

27. KingKurogiii

Posts: 5713; Member since: Oct 23, 2011

it has gotten small makeovers. everything that's needed to change changed.

I think as far as design goes its fine, i had the OG incredible and it was an excellent device at the time, but i do agree with everyone on the fact that the price is outrageous.

i doubt it's the price. when you clicked "buy it now" it directed you to the Razr Maxx page. it was probably just a place holder.
