Review: HTC Droid Incredible
The browsing experience on the Incredible is really no different than that of any other Android phone. The browser software is the same, and other than the substitution of Verizon Wireless' home page, you might not be able to tell it apart from the Droid.
Thanks in part to HTC's Sense software, the Incredible can be customized by end users more than most. Wallpapers of all kinds can be customized, as can the live (animated) wallpapers. Ringtones, alerts, picture IDs, etc., can all be adjusted. Because the Incredible has 7 home screens, users can practically load so much content as to be able to avoid the main menu altogether. The widgets, shortcuts and apps spread across those screens make for a highly personalized experience. Throw in the extra, customizable Scenes that Sense UI offers, and the sky is the limit when it comes to making the Incredible your own.
