Droid Incredible: Yeah, it Really Is

If you have been thinking of picking up a new smartphone (and really, who isn’t?), the Droid Incredible might be a good option for you. It has one flaw in its rather anemic battery life, but other than that it is a truly solid entry into the smartphone war that is raging across our modern world. The design is a trifle on the clunky side, and even though the camera is nice it is hardly a world beater. Overall, though, the Droid Incredible is a very solid, great piece of technology, in spite of the fact that there are a few issues related to general convenience and battery life. Just be advised that if you want fast, the Incredible will give you fast in abundance.

The Incredible gives you a decent amount of talking time, at 5 hours. This is pretty good, unless you really like to talk and hate to tether yourself to a wall to charge up while you do so. However, the Incredible falls well short of everybody else in the smartphone pack when you check out its standby time- 146 hours. Even the iPhone, with all of its fancy features, dwarfs the Incredible’s idle battery time. There is also the small issue of one feature (the built in FM radio) requiring headphones to listen to. If you can overcome these two problems (and the fact that the phone does feel a little odd in the hand) and still defend the Incredible, it might be the one for you.

The Incredible features Qualcomm’s Snapdragon processor, which is one of the fastest in smartphones today. If you want something done quickly, you will not be disappointed. Also, you can install up to a 32GB sdcard, so as to take the Incredible’s level of memory into the stratosphere. You either need a lot of music, a lot of videos or a whole lot of friends’ numbers to need that much storage space on there.
