HTC Droid INCREDIBLE Reviews
phandroid reviews the HTC Droid INCREDIBLE and writes;
“My absolute FAVORITE new feature of the HTC Incredible is the FM Radio which can only be enabled when you have headphones plugged into the 3.5mm headset jack. Simple to use, and just like Google Navigation, adds a completely new dimension to your phone..Web browsing with the HTC Incredible is fast and enjoyable on the 3.7-inch screen and pages load quickly. ”
Mobileburn reviews the HTC Droid INCREDIBLE and writes;
“Call quality on the HTC DROID Incredible in New York City was stellar. The only issue I noticed from time to time was a slight delay between hitting the on-screen send button and hearing the phone on the other end ring. I didn’t experience a dropped call, and callers noted the clarity of which they were able to hear me. Reception was also very good, and the device mostly reported a full four bars of signal in New York City….”

“The camcorder can shoot video up to 800 x 480 resolution at an average of 26fps with lesser options for VGA and MMS sizes. It uses autofocus for video (impressive) and has a variety of exposure and sharpness controls. Video quality is quite good…”
Infosyncworld reviews the HTC Droid INCREDIBLE and writes;
“For the scrutinizing mobile user, the Incredible is a whopping 0.01-inch thinner than the iPhone 3GS, which will give you tons of free pocket space. It also rocks a 3.7-inch WVGA AMOLED capacitive touchscreen LCD, which is the same technology as the iPhone, except the Incredible’s AMOLED technology will produce brighter colors. Not only did it produce brighter colors, but the display was crisper and easier to read.”

Mobileburn first look reviews the HTC Droid INCREDIBLE and writes;
“…I also enjoyed the phone’s 8 megapixel camera. It took good shots both indoors in low-light situations, thanks to its dual-LED flash, as well as outdoors in the sunlight. For texting, HTC’s landscape and vertical QWERTY keyboards were very easy to use, but I also loved being able to use speak-to-text, a feature available in Android 2.1 smartphones…”
DigitalTrends previews the HTC Droid INCREDIBLE and writes;
“Verizon Wireless has since locked down the staging site—it was originally sniffed out by the blog Phandroid—but information on the site seemed to indicate Verizon planned to go with a $350 early termination fee. The site did not carry any pricing information, but it looks like it will offer a way for interested customers to give their email address for updates on the product’s availability.”

HTC Droid INCREDIBLE User Reviews
“Widgets – Surprisingly the iPhone doesn’t have widgets. The Incredible has some really cool widgets you can use. Widgets are like icons you can add to home screens, but instead of opening a program, the icon itself will give you info or have some other type of functionality like a a list of contacts or booksmarks you can access directly without opening a program first.Transfer files without iTunes – Whether you like iTunes or not, you are hamstrung using it with the iPhone. With the Incredible, transfer is simple. You connect the phone to your computer and you can copy over files to it…”
“The Incredible is fast – almost too fast as it responds quickly to short flicks of my thumb. The optical joystick option for navigation works nicely, especially to avoid extra smudges to the touch screen..The camera is worlds better than that of the iPhone 3G. Photos are clear, and colors are true to life. The led flashes work well. The only drawback is pushing the optical joystick to take a picture..”
“Honestly, I have been waiting for a phone like this every since the iPhone. I don’t have AT&T and to be honest I just don’t like Apple as a company. They make cool stuff, but they rip their customers off. This phone is an iPhone killer…”
