Review: Droid Incredible

Battery issues resolved and a plan in place, I’m finally putting this device through daily driver duties. And it’s a pretty fantastic device!

So far I’ve used this **telephone** to broadcast live video and take 8MP photos. I’ve used this **telephone** to get me to where I needed to go during MTTS when I was driving with someone else or was on foot. It still amazes me that this device (and your iPhone 4) are also designed for voice communications.

You’ve read all about this phone everywhere already, but here is what you want to know. First of all, it is about the same size as an iPhone 3gs and it’s weight is also about the same. I like the way it feels in my hand and all of the buttons are where you expect to find them and are easy to operate.

About the camera; some of have said it’s just ok. I beg to differ. This shot.

Was taken with the Incredible and only lightly processed in iPhoto. As for video quality, here is a short sample.

Keep in mind that the video camera does get bumped to 720p when/if Verizon Wireless releases Android 2.2 (Froyo) for this device.

Otherwise it makes calls like a champ, plays media well and it’s fast! Never a delay switching between apps or with scrolling on a screen. Stuff happens and happens now!

If you are on VZW and are interested in getting an Android phone, don’t need a keyboard or a monster screen, then this is the phone for you. Nice too that they are finally in stock! The only thing I would do is click over to the Android Central store and pick up a 1700mh battery like I’ve mentioned before.

If you have an specific questions about the Droid Incredible, go nuts in the comments and I will do my best to answer them.
