New Phone: HTC Incredible

Posted by spideycw, May 12 2010, 10:58 AM

I have finally parted ways with my Blackberry for Verizon's newest smart phone, the HTC Incredible. Let me start off by saying how freaking FAST this phone is. 1ghz processor baby. Switching screens and opening programs up is seamless. Not only that I get 0 slowdown even with 6-8 programs open at the same time (yes it can multi task)

It has all the basic features on would expect: wifi, 3g, microsd slot (up to 32gb I beleive but may accept up to 64gb), and clear call quality. The interface is slick and amazingly customizable. I think that is what I really like about this phone, the degree to which you can customize it. There are several default (themes) you can choose but you can just as easily make some of your own that you can instantly select. This includes what icons you have on what screens and what programs you always have open and can just access by swiping your finger left or right to a different screen. There are 7 "always open" screen slots and you can access them by swiping left or right or holding down the home button to bring up a mini view of all screens. For example the screen from left to right can be Weather, Messages, Emails, Home, News Service, Agenda, Friend Stream. It makes it super easy to get to what you use most.

One feature I thought would be just a gimmick but that I really like is how you unlike your phone by drawing a pattern on it. I save lots of time just doing this instead of pounding in numbers and it is very fast. For those of you with google voice accounts, or google accounts of anytime it really does integrate so well you don't even notice.

8megapixel dual flash camera is a beast. App store is packed full of lovely apps (go go Dilbert Comic Strip) and the touch screen is a pleasure to use. The keyboard is amazing as is the predictive text interface. I almost never turn the phone horizontal I can accomplish everything vertical and it looks great.

After a few more days I will be able to give a better idea about the battery life but I mus say I am extremely happy with this phone and recommend it to all Verizon customers looking for a kick ass and un-neutered phone.

Just be aware Windows Mobile 7 is already in its RC phase and there is no upgrade path from 6.* (the platforms are very different). sad.gif
