Rated 5 out of 5Â by dunderball Powerful and fast in a perfectly sized package
----------OVERVIEW---------- If youre a fan of either of the first two Incredible phones, this will not disappoint. If youre also a fan of the Rezound, this will also be right up your alley. The best way to describe this phone is if the Incredible 2 and the Rezound had offspring, this would be it.
----------BATTERY---------- With the latest dual-core S4 processor clocked at 1.2 ghz along with its integrated LTE radio, you will see much improved battery life compared to some of the disasters that were seen in the Galaxy Nexus and in some cases, the Rezound. The larger battery capacity and the smaller screen also helps to improve battery life, without sacrificing quality from the display.
----------DISPLAY---------- The display itself is qHD, and with the smaller screen and tight pixel density, looks great under any conditions. The screen size hits the perfect mark for me personally.
----------INTERFACE---------- Coming from Android 2.3, Android 4.0 has a slight learning curve, but so far it has been a fast and efficient experience while performing multitasking, app launching, and uses of widgets. HTC did a great job with Sense 4.0, and is universally praised as being much more polished than Samsungs TouchWiz and Motorolas MotoBlur.
----------LOOKS---------- The looks of this phone are completely subjective, but I found it to be very rugged, with the rubberized feel of the back cover, and pleasing to the eye due to its red accents that have been a signature in the Incredible series. I was surprised to see the glossiness of the edges of the phone, as this is hard to pick up from just the promotional photos.
And obviously, this phone stands out especially due to its size, bucking the trend of tablet-sized Androids coming out on the market. Lets just say that I can pocket this phone in my jeans and tie my shoe laces without a problem.
----------DRAWBACKS---------- This phone suffers from some problems that unfortunately stem from poor marketing and choices from Verizon. The release of the HTC One line, which Verizon decided not to carry, have resulted in this phone paling in comparison. At the same time, with the upcoming Galaxy S3 drawing very near, this phone has also become overshadowed by its hype.
But when performing strict comparisons between this phone and other superphones on the market, the phone clearly lacks in the camera area due to HTCs renowned Imagesense chip that goes missing from this phone. Despite that, photos are clear, colors are accurate, and shooting is fast due to its no-lag shutter.
A major drawback for some may be its low onboard storage space (at 8 GB), but is easily remedied with the usage of a micro-SD card (up to 32 GB possible). I personally use a 16 GB card.
----------SUMMARY---------- If youre looking for one of the latest and greatest phones, but want to avoid carrying a behemoth in your pocket, and have been a fan of HTCs line of phones and improved Android experience they provide, do yourself a favor and pick one up now.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Droidible Really Good
The phone is great, is the perfect size and performance. I was waiting for it per months, other Droid devices I dont doubt they are good but I love this one because the screen is great and it suits to my pocket. I had 1 week the first one and it heats up a lot, I asked for another one, it still heats up a little(is more like a normal device) but the battery life no last for much(like every smartphone). It is a great option for those Android lovers.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by marebear1701 Great phone
I've had my incredible 2 for almost a year ( got it on black friday 2011), and love it!. It's easy to use, battery is good, though since it's my only phone I always plug it in every night. Never had any problems with it.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by epinion WiFi problem
I've had this HTC for 2 weeks. This is a replacement for my original which I had for three months. Same issue as the 1st phone. The WiFi does not disconnect automatically. I can travel miles from my last WiFi connection and the phone still shows connected to the last WiFi site and does not switch to 4G or (3g) until I fiddle with the settings. Verizon store verified my problem with both phones but HTC cannot offer a fix. All else with the phone is great. Love the size, screen, speed, etc. but disappointed that this problem is "unfixable".

Rated 5 out of 5Â by PhxDsrtRat Great little phone
This phone is a great compromise of speed and usability in a smaller package. I upgraded from an original Incredible and this phone is not much bigger but packs far more power and a bigger screen. For those that want a phone that is powerful but not a large format like the Galaxy S3 this is a great package. The phones build quality is as solid as the original. As others have mentioned, the battery life is shorter than I would like.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by rwither1 One of the Best HTC phones ever
I'm a phone snob, having owned an iphone, the RAZR, and a few other Motorola devices. The Incredible 4G is great, for the following reasons:
1. Best battery life of any phone I've had.
2. Above average call quality - just as good as the RAZR.
3. Excellent ICS integration
5. Lots of storage space.
6. Ergonomic and solid phone.
Voice commands lacking.
I'd recommend it to anyone though.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by AndroidFan41 No major flaws, but not a homerun either
I have no major complaints. The screen is awesome. Even in direct sunlight it does better than most. I like the size because it fits nicely in my pocket. I want a phone thats functional, but doesnt feel like I have a mini tablet in my pocket. (I dont use a case because Im usually pretty good with phones). Its fast, but it seems to have poor standby battery life that becomes even worse when you are using apps (GPS especially, but that goes for all phones)

Rated 1 out of 5Â by zenfishbike Doesn't give recurring message notification
This phone only gives one message notification tone when the message comes in. There are no further sounds to tell you you have a message, only a tiny green flashing light. That is absurd. I don't care what else this thing can do if it can't even alert me to this basic need. Never thought I'd need to check for this feature with any smart phone today. Expensive lesson learned.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Skookieha8 Completely Efficient
I must start off saying I am a little biased because I like HTC as a brand. I owned the original Incredible for over 2 years. I really enjoy the user friendly feel to this phone. It is a great size for my girl hands LOL. The battery will last at least 24 hours with normal use. Normal being, surfing the net, streaming Pandora, texting, videos, etc... The screen is very bright and I can easily see it in daylight. Overall it has been exactly what it needs to be.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Justincredible4Glte Great Quality - Small Screen
I love that the phone is longer, rather than wide. It fits well in a pocket however, the screen is just too small. I love the 4G LTE and that is what really makes this phone cutting edge

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Roxyisabella HTC Incredible 5 out of 5 stars. HTC Incredible Lite no stars.
I absolutely loved my first HTC Incredible. The speaker gave out after two years. I was very satisfied with the phone. I tried a Droid Razor and wasn't impressed, so I traded for the (I thought dependable), Incredible. Right from the start I noticed it didn't take pictures anything like the first Incredible. Then it just seemed to do what it wanted. For instance, the screen changing all the time. The speaker comes and goes on this at random. Any actions I try to set up, such as the simplest, setting an alarm, even changes on it's own. I will not purchase another.

I like that the battery lasts a full day even if I am playing games on it for hours. I love that if I am not using wi-fi that the internet is super fast. Has wonderful camera and hd video that is super bright and colorful. Overall a big upgrade from the original HTC Droid Incredible.

1. Very powerful little machine
2. Doesnt hurt my hand...nice size
3.Amazing to me that a phone of this power and elegance is considered to be mid-range
4. Battery life is good; I think because of the S4 chip, and the screen isnt so huge that it sucks the life out of the battery.
5 Automatically comes with ability to print on WiFi network.
6. I dont read sci-fi any more, the future is here now.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by wfitz1964 Droid INC LTE not like INC 2
I bought Droid inc LTE . while I enjoy most of its capabilities are excellent the hardware is very nice build it has some very annoying features . I loved Inc 2 UI way it was customized to show weather friendstream . on LTE thease extrats are to put it mildly MIA. Miss those extras . the small size realy puts me off as well . I reveiews inc gave it 5 out of 5 . its one of those things that some times a realy good design is hard to top. If your considering this phone and want a big screen dont consider this one but if you need a small scren and social media isnt a concern this one would be a good choice. Im disappointed this phone had such a slipshod design this is more to do with Verizons customization as well as HTC implementation of sense. I love old sense but this interpretation is botched BYTW Im not on Samsungs payroll . I love HTC products but this wasnt a brillent move on their part . ICS is excellent I would urge Verizon to update this phone to jelly bean which I believe fixes sense shortcomings and take better care if they sell a phone that takes a name of blockbuster phone to show the same understanding in its successor this phone fails in that regard.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by JarrinJack Not a very smart phone - avoid at all costs
I have recently moved to this "smart"phone and I must say it is terrible. I am new to the smartphone world, but none of my expectations, or the descriptions of function by the salesman have been met. To wit, compared to my previous "basic phone" this phone does not do true voice dialing (it still requires 3 screen presses), does not recognize contacts unless I use the entire 10 digit phone number, does not show me waiting voicemail without my going to check, has a counterintuitive interface, etc. I could go on, but it would just bore you. My advice, do not buy this phone without first using every function you hold near and dear to you!

Really quick phone. No lag in it yet. Had the phone for about 3 hours now. Really nice. Battery was about half when I first put the battery in, and its still on half. Thats pretty good for a HTC Droid phone. Im coming from the OG Incredible. Camera is really nice, crisp, quick. Get this phone. Only down side is the speakers isnt as loud as the first Incredible, idk why.

This is my first personal smart phone and it met all my expectations. The clerk compared it to an iphone 5. My wife got the iphone 4s and this phone blows it away.The volume control button is a little tricky and takes some getting use to, otherwise I am really pleased with the performance and ease of use.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by SMRTphoneUSR Great at first, but then...
Ive had this phone for quite some time. I loved this phone when I first got it, despite it sending texts to every single contact in my phone book (VZW had to do a hard reset the 2nd day I had it due to this glitch). The battery lasts about half-to 3/4 a day (and I dont use it all day since I am at work). Although I have few apps and clear data regularly, my storage is full, so I cant send/receive texts. This happens every 2 weeks or so. Now, my phone wont turn on...at all. My sister experienced most of these issues as well, so I know Im not alone. Ive liked this phone, and my first year with it was great, but it has quickly become unreliable after the first year.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by mtbsteve Happy with my first Droid
I like this phone so far. I miss some of the gestures from my Palm Pre but I am quickly learning and liking this phone. Everything is faster on it. Quickly synced with bluetooth in my car and my fi-fi at home. Hint - Shut off the notifications that pop up when opening apps to find wi-fi, there is a pop up on the phone that shows you how. The screen is nice and this is about as large as you want to go if using the phone in one hand is a priority. I will have to check battery life going forward but the fact that you can swap batteries and probably replace with a better one in the future is a huge plus. Overall, very pleased with my first Droid. I prefer the look and feel of this compared to my wifes iPhone 4S which I now consider too fragile after seeing the front glass shatter when falling less than 1 foot!

I dont stream a ton of music or spend hours on the Internet, but I do download apps, check weather, bank accounts, credit cards, etc. The battery in my opinion is outstanding. I love the thin feel mostly because I like a small phone, but the screen is perfect size. I have no complaints about this phone. It is everything I expected, and more.

This is a decent phone for the price given but I would definitely spend the extra money to get a GS3 or iPhone 5. Not a bad device at all for a starter smart phone but anything beyond that isnt worth it.
