HTC Droid Incredible is incredible
posted by PhoneArena Team / Apr 16, 2010, 9:50 AM
The hardware of HTC Droid Incredible is its greatest power. It’s not like we see a 3.7-inch AMOLED screen, 8MP camera, 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 576MB RAM and 8GB built-in memory (plus microSD slot) combined in a single device every day. Oh, and don’t you think this back is so sexy? Ok, ok … it’s a bit angular, but still…
Besides, the device has the most recent version of Android – 2.1, and the Sense UI, that has proved to be very convenient to use.
Another reason for us to believe that Verizon Wireless is going to sell loads of HTC Droid Incredible units is the price: $199 (after $100 mail-in rebate) is more than a good price for such a high-end device.
We expect Big Red to start offering the Google Nexus One in the near future and it should become the closest match to the Incredible. The technical characteristics of Google’s phone are not as impressive, but it still ranks among the best. In fact, it fails to surpass the Desire in terms of camera (5MP, as compared to 8MP), has 64MB less RAM, doesn’t have enough built-in memory, and no Sense (which can be fixed with an unofficial ROM). In case it gets a good price tag (cheaper than the Droid Incredible), it can become a good competitor.
Below, you can see a table presenting a comparison of the main features of HTC Droid Incredible, Google Nexus One and Motorola DROID – the latter being an enormous success. The DROID offers a QWERTY keyboard, unlike the Incredible and Nexus One.

Verizon Wireless is getting some precedence over Sprint and its HTC EVO 4G, which is expected to hit the shelves this summer, as the Droid Incredible is coming out as soon as April 29. The Incredible seems to be the right Android choice for Verizon Wireless customers right now. Would you agree?

So, I know the Nexus One is supposed to come out for Verizon...but is there any point now? Just going down the line, it just seems that the Incredible is either the same or ahead of the Nexus One...

Couple mistakes on the chart. The Moto Droid has been upgraded to Android 2.1 and the Incredible will be able to handle a 32gb SD card as well.

Does the Incredible have a small track-ball or track-pad? It doesn't seem clear to me on my display. Or is it a recessed trackball (I'm guessing)...

The back looks cheap to me but I do like the touch of visual interest. On a side note I'm ready to HTC to put out a high quality, High end Android phone with a physical keyboard. It's nice that the screens are getting bigger on the phones. And onscreen keyboards aren't as cramped, but if the phone is running multiple apps the onscreen Is completely unresponsive or so slow u don't want to type. Like now on my hero.

I'm just surprised, no one has really mentioned what seems like a big deal to me which is that there's 8GB onboard memory. I don't believe a single HTC phone up until now has had this feature. Doesn't this addresses the app storage issue that has been mentioned before for all the previous non-iPhone smartphones that have expandable storage, but no built in storage. Or will that still be an issue? Win7 is requiring onboard storage for their phones, but no Android phones have had onboard storage until now, isn't that correct?

You are correct sir. Plus, I think another major point is that 8mp camera will trump all other cameras VZW has put out on devices, with a duel LED flash. And, according to the other phonearena article recently on Flash Support, only android phones with a strong enough Processor (the nexus one so far) would be able to support it, this makes another one to look forward to flash.

another thing no one noticed is the hump on the back of the phone....the weird angular design...this is so it can fit the 1300 mah batter it comes with or a 1500mah battery from a tp2 or imagio...kind of an interesting feature
