HTC DROID Incredible 4G LTE unboxing [VIDEO]

Verizon announced the release date for the HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE today, and now we have one of the very first looks at the device just days ahead of that July 5th due date.

It houses a 1.2GHz dual-core S4 processor by Qualcomm, 1GB of RAM, a 4 inch qHD display, an 8 megapixel 1080p HD camera with flash, a front-facing camera, 8GB of internal storage (~1GB for apps and ~5GB for media, but comes with a microSD card slot), a 1,700 mAh battery, NFC, and much more.

For software, there’s the usual Android 4.0 with HTC Sense 4.0 combination and Verizon’s crop of custom apps. Be sure to stay on the lookout for our official reviews in the coming days, but be sure to check out our quick look at the device in the YouTube video above.

If you have any specific questions you want answered in the review be sure to leave them here and I’ll do my best to get them all.

    Compare the screen to other phones. Pentile? Pentile pixelation? How is the camera?

    • phinn

      Looks like it’s a 275ppi, non-pentile LCD. In other words it’ll look better than any of the 300+ppi pentile AMOLEDs if you can give up the black level.

    • tdizzel

      Aww, poor baby. you’re still stuck on the pentile (non)issue.

        I can’t help it if you are blind

    Really hard to justify spending $149 for this phone when RadioShack is pricing the Samsung SGIII at the same price.

    How does the battery do when combined with the S4 chip?

    • http://www.google.com/profiles/phinnvr6 phinn

      Engadget said it did well in the rundown test. Much better than non-S4 LTE phones. Of course nothing beats the Razr MAXX still.

    NFC?

    • phinn

      yes, says so right in the article.

  • toomuchgame441

    Meh… Just another incredible, nothing interesting at all about it

    • enomele

      Except the Droid Incredible is still one of the best Android phones ever made.

      I loved my DInc. It was a great phone, but it was over 2 years old. I just upgraded to an S3 when I dumped Verizon. Watching this review, made me nostalgic, but not necessarily in a good way.

  • c4v3man

    Such a bummer that we haven’t seen any Verizon S3 unboxing videos… they’re really going to draw out their release as long as possible aren’t they… If we don’t see leaks/previews next Monday, then we’re probably facing a delay.

  • BlueLetter

    Holy crap!! What’s up with the picky nails man? Are you peeling tomatoes with those things?

  • turfgrass64

    sad, this phone should have been a one s with the rezound screen…

    • NightAngel79

      Now THAT would have been EXCELLENT!

    • http://www.google.com/profiles/phinnvr6 phinn

      Woulda been happy if it was just a straight up One S.

  • phinn

    Wtf are you talking about? When has there been higher resolution on a 4.0″ display? This qHD is NON-PENTILE and about 275ppi. That’s extremely good.

    I’m far more concerned with color saturation and accuracy, black levels, etc. And those don’t look particularly impressive from this video unfortunately. I’ll wait for a real review.

      While my qHD screen was 4.3 inches on my Evo 3D and it was nice, I still think they should try to keep up with the new standard of 720p. To go even further I wish they’d just carry the One X and stop wanting to Droid brand everything. You’re absolutely right though about non-pentile and the pixel density, it’s not bad, but I’d still prefer a bit more.

      • phinn

        Maybe, but at 4.0″ I don’t think it’s possible, technology-wise to hit 1280×720. That would be an absurd 367ppi. It’s really a waste of energy and processing power over ~300ppi anyway with non-pentile. Really 275ppi is excellent at 4.0″, like I said at that point they should focus on black levels, etc.

        This device isn’t trying to be some wannabe-tablet 4.3, 4.65, zomg 4.8, blablabla. It keeps to 4.0″ and I think it’s perfect for many people. And it manages to do so with 4G, NFC, and a Krait processor.

        • http://www.facebook.com/lucyparanormal Daniel Tiberius

          Very good point. It’s good to have a high end ICS phone that isn’t gigantic, as not everyone is into that (like me, Galaxy Note enthusiast), and we want to let people have options. Well said sir.

  • Darrkman

    As one Black man to another….man up and cut your nails brah. Seriously. I know no chicks are letting you get close to them with that going on.

    • RavenFox

      lol I was thinking the same thing.

  • http://twitter.com/fightcrazy Vinny

    Great size and looks, too bad they cheaped out with int. storage. Never understand how you can go thru all that hard work and leave out the most inexpensive thing to put into a phone, storage. That can make or brake a phone, this coming with just 8gb of int storage and only 1 for apps is ridiculous. I have the Rezound, I think it is the best hardware in the Verizon line up. Although the Nexus phone and it’s new software upgrade makes it IMO the phone to get.

  • G0nzo

    lol i’ve seen far worse finger nails in product presentation or serveral unboxing clips ;)

    btw: any information this device coming to EU?…oh frack me, we’r still testing 4g LTE , darn!

    Love this phone, 3rd times a charm? Seems like the perfect size/performance 4G phone to me. The price is right too, I bet it’ll be <$100 in no time. The CM9+ support might be poor considering the smaller amount of people to purchase it unfortunately.
