RealClear Summary


HTC's Droid Incredible 4G LTE - available through Verizon for $149 with contract - bucks the trends of gigantic phones with a 4-inch screen (540 x 960 pixels). It runs Android 4 (Ice Cream Sandwich) skinned with HTC's Sense 4 interface. You'll find a 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, an 8-megapixel camera, 4G mobile hotspot capability and a microSD slot.

The Droid Incredible also features Beats Audio and Android Beam, which lets two Android phones share information (maps, YouTube videos) by tapping phones together.

Reviews of the Droid Incredible were mixed. Many reviewers appreciated the specs and smaller screen size as an alternative for those not looking for pocket-busting giants like the Samsung Galaxy S III or Galaxy Note. Others complained that the $150 price tag was far too high for a phone with the Droid Incredible's qualities.
