Review: HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE for Verizon Wireless

With respect to music, the Incredible offers a pretty wide range of options. Amazon MP3, Slacker, Google Play Music, and the bare-bones music app are all pre-installed. These apps each have their pros and cons. Amazon and Google Play can be used for purchasing music, as well as streaming purchased tracks to the Incredible. Slacker offers free and for-pay streaming services. Bummer that there's no FM radio.

On the video front, the Incredible includes the stock YouTube app, HTC Watch, a simple video player, Google Play Movies, and Verizon Video. HTC Watch is HTC's movie rental store. You can also download (purchase or rent) video content (TV shows and movies) from the Google Play Movies store. The selection between HTC Watch and Google Play is about the same, as are the prices.

Oh, and SlingBox is also pre-installed if you're into streaming the content from your home cable box to your smartphone. This requires separate hardware and monthly fees, though, making the app’s presence more of an ad than a useful function for most people.

Thanks to the Beats Audio integration, music and video sound great through the Incredible. I used several different sets of earbuds/headphones and was impressed with the quality. What I really like is that the Beats software has been integrated deeper into the OS, so it works with all media apps on the device.
