Tech Report – HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE

When it first came out, HTC’s original Droid Incredible was something of a landmark device. Arriving less than a year after the iPhone 3GS and a couple of months before the introduction of the iPhone 4, the Incredible was perhaps the first device that suggested Android smartphones were truly a force to be reckoned with.

Running Android 2.1 (later updated to Android Froyo) and featuring an 8 megapixel camera, a mobile MiFi hotspot and removable storage, the Incredible started a game of one-upmanship between Android phones and the iPhone that has continued to this day. Here’s what PC Magazine had to say about the original Incredible: “The DROID Incredible by HTC is an absolutely amazing device. The most powerful phone on the U.S. market today, it reflects and enhances the state of the art smartphone, with the full backing and support of the Verizon Wireless network.”

Since then, we have welcomed the Incredible 2, and many other Android-powered HTC smartphones but nothing has captured the imagination like that original Droid Incredible. But last month there was another watershed moment for the venerable Incredible brand: the release of the HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE, again by Verizon Wireless.

The Incredible 4G LTE stays true to the dimensions of the original Incredible. Although the 4-inch Super LCD screen is bigger than the iPhone 4S display, it is considerably smaller than some of the more recent Android monsters. Despite the smaller size, watching movies and video on the Incredible 4G LTE is comfortable and the colors are bright and sharp.

The Incredible comes with the Android Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, boosted and abetted by the HTC Sense 4.0 user interface. That 8 megapixel camera is back but this time accompanied by a VGA front-facing camera and all the latest photo options and editing tools.

The Incredible 4G LTE comes with a rich selection of media choices, including Verizon Video, HTC’s own Watch video store, a combined Music app and the Beats Audio package. A host of additional built-in apps include VZ Navigator, Amazon Kindle, My Verizon Mobile and many more.

But of course the biggest different from two years ago is the addition of the blazingly fast Verizon 4G LTE network. Music and movie downloads take just a fraction of the time they used to, and the web browsing response – even on video-heavy NBC Olympics sites – is consistently lag-free.

The HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE costs $149.99 after a $50 online discount and requires a two-year contract. It is available exclusively through Verizon Wireless.

As you may have guessed, it is made of titanium and some stainless steel¡ªthe case is titanium and the rolex replica sale is stainless steel.

Synergy means cooperative action. This replica watches uk combines the best of the old and the new to deliver something uniquely modern. All of the classic elements are there.

But the informal band gives it a more casual look and feel, which can be quite appealing to the modern male.
