Announced earlier, but launched right on time, the HTC DROID Incredible 4G LTE has made a timely appearance into the market of the Android smart phones. As the name suggests, it uses the 4G technology, and uses it on the Verizon network, which means you get the lightening fast speed which you have probably picked up this phone for in the first place. However, if you’re looking for beauty, this might not be your thing. Although smaller than the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, it is not sleeker or prettier. It’s a pretty clunky kind of phone, and feels rather a handful, but perhaps we should cut HTC some slack – after all it requires the thickness of the phone to accommodate the 4G radio.
The display? With the screen resolution at 540 X 960 pixels, it gives you the best of an LCD display, but with every pro there is a con – and here the con is that the screen may be too small, especially if you’re used to something larger. It only comes up to about 4 inches diagonally, and that’s not too much, if you’re thinking of playing games or watching movies with your phone.
The phone runs Ice Cream Sandwich, what this means is that you have an interface which lets you multitask (something that many smart phones seem to have trouble with), and the capacity to edit and manage your apps at your launcher. Sense 4.0 has other features as well such as being able to access settings with a single tap from home screen. Useful? We think so.
The camera with the HTC DROID Incredible 4G LTE is actually not very different from other HTC cameras. Obviously they decided they’d done well with the ImageSense, which is what this phone as, just as the others in the one series did. It makes for easy navigation and picture settings, and the video recording is pretty spectacular, but the video stabilization is not particularly great. Shoot video with care if you want to avoid a mess!
There’s a bit to be said about the battery life as well. You can do a lot with it, (obviously don’t expect a smart phone to have the battery life of a Kindle), before it hits near-death, but if you feel like you need to be fussing with your phone every second of the day, it might last you about five hours and fifteen minutes. Not bad at all, and there’s a lot to look forward with this phone, especially Verizon’s LTE network which is touted to be one of the best.
