HTC Droid Incredible Initial Thoughts
I’ve had the HTCÂ IncredibleÂ for a week now and have used it pretty rigorously, testing the battery, speed, voice dialing, etc. Here are my initial thoughts on the device.
- It’s very thin and light.
- It’s super fast (compared to the Motorola Droid).
- Great Camera. It’s also very fast.
- Interface is very slick.
- Flash Light App is really cool!
- It was free from Best Buy.
- Integrated Facebook, Twitter, & Flickr is cool. My contacts feel more complete.
- Battery Life is fine.
- Voice Search seems better on this device.
- Keyboard is very easy to use in both landscape and portrait.
The Not So Good:
- There’s no unified Contacts app. Each of the 4 components (Call History, People, Groups, and Online Directories) are their own apps they you can navigate between.
- There are a lot of preinstalled apps that I cannot delete.
- It doesn’t use the official Facebook or Twitter apps.
- I miss the Favorite Contacts area from the Droid.
- (this is all android phones) I wish there were a way to hide apps in the apps drawer.
Overall, I’m very happy with the Incredible so far. It’s much faster than my old phone, the camera is much better with a faster shooting time, and everything feels very slick and cool. I can’t wait to get the dock for it!
