Only one Droid can be deemed incredible. Kevin Pereira and Chris Hardwick review the new HTC Droid Incredible for Verizon Wireless with its 3.7" OLED touch screen, HTC sense interface and 8 mega pixel flash camera for $200 with a contract.
What You Need To Know
The phone runs on Android 2.1 with HTC's Sense UI which improves the OS with modified home screens, widgets and additional apps.
With the OLED screen, the phone was very streamlined.
The touch screen is very responsive and accurate.
We didn't have any issues typing on the virtual keyboard or selecting items.
HTC Sense really enhances the customization of the phone, allowing you to save and load profiles of your home screen configuration and change it on the fly.
There's a slight delay on the accelerometer at times, and you can only turn it to the left to enter landscape mode.
Other than that, we had an enjoyable experience.
The pictures from the 8 mega pixel camera with a built in flash and tap focus were great in normal light, but the flash was a little overpowering in lower light conditions.
Web browsing includes a pinch to zoom feature, plus the added support of Flash Lite 4.0.
We had no problem loading websites, and we could even watch videos from G4tv.com (though they were a little choppy), which most phones can't do.
Everything else, like the Android Market, email, messaging and other features worked as expected.
