Since we all know most of the positives on the DI (Droid Incredible), i'll be the first to mention some of the negatives. Most of these could be blamed on the limitations imposed by the network. But anyways...

-Call Clarity: I used to be with tmo and though the signal would fade away the moment i stepped into most buildings, the call clarity with the G1, Mytouch 3g, and N1 were outstanding. But for some reason, the call clarity on the DI is inconsistent. Some calls are perfect, while others are not worth wasting minutes on.

-Apps: Its hard to blame the device for this one, but its kind of annoying. First, the internal memory (8gb) is troublesome. Some apps dont respond to it like other users have mentioned and it would just make things easier if the just preloaded it with a 16gb sd card (HD2 has it! why not the Incredible?). Another annoying thing is that some of the preloaded apps, Amazon mp3, are in just about all the other android phones...but not in this phone. Wasnt downloading music straight to your phone a great thing? Maybe not for some but how the heck am i supposed to download music?? (essentially i found the apk and installed it) . No Google Earth is a slap in the face too.

-Glitch in photo app: Not sure if everyone has this problem. Its not a big one, but enough to make you frustrated when your trying to show off your 8 mp quality photos. Once you select a photo from your gallery, the photo is displayed to fit the screen. Without moving the image, the picture isn't as clear as it should be, but once u zoom in... give it a sec... it refocuses and then when you zoom back out, you get your clear photo.

-Signal bars: Everyone knows this by now, but the signal bars are not on par with the actual signal. Its not a huge issue, I've had perfect 3g and phone connection with one bar. Its just a display issue.


Well there you go, just some minor things that i ran into. These issues that don't even match up to the amazingness of this phone. Htc sense does an exceptional job with contact integration throughout all networking sites. Great phone.

WELL?? DO I?? DO I MAKE THAT LEAP? IS IT TIME TO TURN TO THE ''DARK SIDE"? IS IT TIME FOR ANDROID AND THE INCREDIBLE? C'MON SOMEBODY JUST GIMME THAT LITTLE PUSH! AAARRRGH!!

Ok, seriously, what's the early opinions here? I'm really startin' to be excited about the capabilities of this new DROID.

like a lot of poeple in this forum, I came from the omnia i910, which I had flashed over and over. I thought I liked it. then I got an incredible and now I think my omnia sucks in comparison.

I'm hoping someone will make a torch app for it asap, I really liked that about the omnia. I also bought the 1750 sedio battery.

Yea, I know what you're sayin'. LOL :) I'm going to flash my 910 ONE MORE TIME...this time to pass it along to my son. It 'll be his 1st PPC Phone, so it should be a good way to get him addicted too! (my wife's gonna love that one)
I've seen several posts around where people are recommending the higher output Seidio batteries. Looks like it'll be a good idea for about 40 bucks.
Thanks for the reply!

I came from and omnia I910
I liked my phone but it jsut didn't have any wow factors to it...it did its job well and took great pictures for me but thats about it... I even flashed it with every kind of custom rom I could find...

the Incredible is the first phone that I have ever preordered... only cause I saw the G4 review of it on attack of the show... its in Itunes under G4>attack of the show podcast if you care to watch it... I saw no bad reviews of the phone so I took the jump...
Lets just say I'm not disappointed... I didn't like the moto droid cause the stupid trackpad on the keyboard on a touchscreen just made no sense... this has the thin profile I like with all the screen space I expect... its the only phone that can compare to the iphone but doesn't look like a bunch of squares placed all over the screen
Great features:
-Multi touch that doesn't suck
-HTC sense - brings all your social networking to your homepages
-android market has just about anything you could ever want... usually free or 2 bucks
-camera is good but the flash is way too powerful and washes out close pics...
-NO TRACKBALL--- no more dirty track ball problems cause its optical on the incred
-8gig on the phone... only thing is you need a card to use some programs cause most phones dont have internal memory so they aren't programmed for it

only bad part about having a top of the line phone is the battery life... I got the upgraded seido battery and it allows me to last the whole day...

This phone will do anything you can imagine... it even stores all your membership barcodes and you can use it instead of carrying around all those cards... best useful app

I myself was a Omnia i910 user, I'm loving my Incredible...


Yes you can tether, using something like PDAnet or Easy tether available from the android market for free, and can use USB or Bluetooth tethering with them.

When the phone is rooted, we will be able to use wifi tether, but until then USB and Bluetooth only options.

If I was you I would try out the HTC Sensation before you decide as that is the eq to the Evo and like the Incredible but with duel core 1.2 ghz cpu. Unfortunately it hadn't arrived when i went for the Incredible otherwise that would have been my choice. Nevertheless the Incredible is a mighty phone easily an iphone challenger.

Yes but i believe you are talking about the Incredible 'S' which is an upgraded incredible for overseas (outside the USA)

Also not to be rude but when i was talking about the incredible it was may 20th... 2010 :D:D
that was a year ago, lol. would love to get the sensation but not going to t-mo for it
