Review: HTC Droid Incredible

Form Basics Extras Wrap-Up Comments  23  

The Incredible is incredible. Despite its few weaknesses, the Incredible outmatches every other handset that Verizon Wireless currently offers.

Its faster processor, better camera, Sense UI, and extra customization features make it much better to use day in and day out. HTC has done a good job of optimizing Sense UI (which ran like a dog on the HTC Hero) so that it runs smoothly now with no hiccups.

The 8 megapixel camera works well, takes good pictures, captures good video, and is a solid stand-alone camera replacement. The music experience is also slightly better than that of other Android phones, though the Incredible still suffers from a lack of baked-in video playback support.

The radio performance wasn't perfect, but calls didn't suffer as a result. Wi-Fi is always an option if cell strength starts to dwindle. The browser hasn't been tweaked much, but the mobile web looks great on the Incredible's large and pixel rich display.

Social networking and other message-making tasks are accomplished with ease, and the Incredible helps organize them in a way that makes sense (pun intended). Perhaps the only niggle that might keep some at bay is the lack of a physical QWERTY keyboard. If you don't mind typing on glass, the Incredible is the best device Verizon offers.
