Review: HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE for Verizon Wireless
The HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE may not by a stunning flagship phone, but it's certainly a good effort from HTC. It includes nearly all of the features that its bigger siblings do, but packs them into a smaller package.
The Incredible's hardware is decent, the display dazzling, and the signal and voice performance as good as any phone I've tested. The Sense 4.0 user interface on top of Android 4.0 is slick and offers an incredible amount of flexibility to the user. The media options are excellent, and basic tools such as messaging and contact management are top-of-the-class.
Perhaps the Incredible's only weakness is the camera, but it's not so bad as to be a deal-breaker. In my opinion, the Incredible's biggest problem is its lack of sex appeal. It just doesn't offer the same pizzazz that some of the competing devices do.

That said, the HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE does an incredible job of offering a lot in a little phone.
