HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE Review

0. phoneArena posted on 04 Jul 2012, 06:58

Two years ago when the original HTC DROID Incredible was released by Verizon, it was considered a high-end Android Smartphone, and was followed-up a year later by the HTC DROID Incredible 2. Now with the release of the HTC DROID Incredible 4G LTE, Verizon is hoping to capitalize on the two earlier model’s success and have customers upgrade to the newest version – which adds 4G LTE connectivity, a higher resolution display, and faster processor...

Why in the heck would Verizon release this phone? Was it worth delaying the Galaxy S3 a whole week or more? I had the Rezound and it sounds better then this in everyway!!! I had friends that hated the Incredible mainly due to battery life and they switched to Team iPhone...Why not get the HTC ONE?? Best service Worst phones Verizon! Smh

BTW I know people will get this for the 4inch screen but the Rezound isn't that much bigger, it feels small in your hand! By numbers yes its bigger but it feels exactly the same in your hand as the Rezound! I think the screen is much better on the Rezound and I had friends who ALL HATED the Incredible 1 and 2

the screen barely even matters, it's the S4 and Sense 4 that makes all the difference. the Incredibles have always been popular, well liked phones. the Incredible S/2 became a favorite in the development community.

The nearly 10% difference from a 4" to a 4.3" is substantial, if that is a criteria that matters to you. Perhaps not to you, but to others, it is. Plus the difference between the S2 and S3 processors when it comes to battery performance is a big deal as well. I guess you are the type who will wait for the next generation of some technology to come out, then buy the previous generation because it is "just as good". If that is the case, more power to you.. we need people to pick up the old ipad 2's and older phones. Personally though, if I can only upgrade once every 2 years, I am not going to settle for last year's technology when I have the choice of getting this year's..

I am sitting right at 3 days on one charge now with my DInc4G. I guarantee that wouldn't happen with a rezound. I like the ICS, I like sense 4, and when I put this phone next to my DInc1, it is slightly taller but otherwise the same dimensions.. not 10% bigger in each direction. Bigger is NOT always better.

Oh, and depending on where you live, sometimes Verizon is the only choice that makes any sense, so you are stuck with their lineup. That isn't to say that the HTC One X or S would be a better choice than the DInc4G, they are still bigger screens.. For VERIZON, the choice is pretty clear for a 4".. it's this one or the iphone.. and personally I HATE the iphone..

you must have misunderstood me. the Incredible is the better buy because of the S4 and Sense 4. I know all about the differences between the S3 and S4. as far as screen size is concerned that's subjective. this phone is obviously for people that want smaller phones just like the Incredible 2 before it.

Worst device ever. Over heats and reboots. Data was fine now drops all the time. I got a replacement device and cracking calls. Then I put my SD card and the phone fried it. I lost all of my pictures and everything. I call to try to get another device and the only way is if I take my upgrade and lose my unlimited data plan. Verizon period is a trap. Let's keep sending you the same broken device and tell you the only way out is to lose your unlimited data, so you will have to pay us more if you go over your data plan. To top it off I had to sit there for an hour arguing with customer service about replacing my 32gb SD card, because they can't replace anything over 30 dollars. (there 32gb is 70 buck...) finally I'm getting a new SD card but this same old crappie device. It doesn't even matter if you have an extended warranty or anything.

Worst device ever and company. Plus nothing but being rude to your 5+ years customer.

HTC has reported issues with data, overheating, and calling on other devices.
They acted like there's no way it could be the device because no one else reported problem.

Plus I'm on my 5th replacement with the same issues.
