HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE Review
The HTC DROID Incredible 4G LTE has exceptional call quality, similar to what we experienced with the HTC Rezound. Calls on our end exhibited clear and full sounding voices through the earpiece, though using the rear speakerphone can cause a bit of distortion if set too loud. People that we talked to said we sounded good on their end and some thought we were using a standard land-line phone.

Reception was also good, as no calls were dropped. But like most other Verizon 4G LTE smartphones, it maintains good 4G reception for data when outside, but does suffer when inside a house or building, thus reverting back to 3G EVDO at times.

The included 1700 mAh battery is a bit less than we’d like (around 2000 mAh), but thankfully it’s more than the 1620 mAh battery that came with the HTC Rezound. This allowed us up to 5 hours of talk time on a full charge, or about 12-14 hours of mixed usage.


Conclusion:

When looking at the current landscape of Android smartphones, the HTC DROID Incredible 4G LTE is a nice addition, but simply does not stand out from the competition as there really isn’t anything remarkable about it. Its key feature is its smaller physical size, making it usable with a single hand. It also has some nice features, such as Android ICS with HTC Sense 4 UI, good call quality, and a nice camera – all of which make the HTC DROID Incredible 4G LTE a good phone, although lacking any “wow” factor.

Software on tested phone:
Android 4.0.3
HTC Sense 4.0
Build Number 1.43.605.3
