Battery life is only about 2 hours November 1, 2010
Reviewer: little Rock "ray_hung"
The battery life is terrible when compared to iPhone. Apps are limited too. But the price is definitely more attractive.
droid htc incredible February 2, 2011
Reviewer: T. Brooks
I HATE THIS PHONE. I beyond hate it. I wish I could make them take it back. Worst choice I ever made was to UPGRADE to this crap. This phone is supposed to make things easier??? No you have to move back and forth back and forth between screens just to send an email. Oh and FORGET email if you want to use a client other then gmail. It is like pulling teeth to get the phone to realize there are other email options out there. This phone has been nothing but a pain. Organizing anything is a nightmare, getting around is a nightmare, and Verizon itself does not even understand the thing.
Great potential, but way too many problems June 12, 2010
Reviewer: Doc Steelers (Florida) -
Great feel in the hand, size and weight. Excellent screen and touch response. Apps are fast. Horrible sound quality, horrible, reception, horrible battery life. Conversations are impossible. Consist of, what?...what?... what did you say? Sounds garbled, breaking up. Dropped calls, rarely gets a 3G signal. I am a light user and still have to recharge the battery 2 or 3 times a day. Can't believe I waited 3 weeks for this piece of junk. Can't believe I gave up my iPhone on AT&T for this. HTC Customer Service, after three complaints and getting nothing but a canned 'There is nothing wrong with our phone', finally said a ROM update is forthcoming. Will not say when it is be available. Better be before my 30 days are up, or I won't be there to receive it. No guarantee it will even solve the problems. When I googled my issues, I found thousands of others with the same issues.
Question? January 13, 2011
Reviewer: Anne Harris (Morgantown, WV) -
If I buy this phone, can I take it into the store and have it activated? Or does buying this phone off of here require me to sign a new plan? My phone (EnV Touch) recently took a dive into my aquarium. Any information is useful!
Dissapointing May 21, 2010
Reviewer: Marmot Dan (Cleveland, Ohio) -
I was very excited to get the new Droid Incredible. To be very honest the apps are great and speed was very good, however for me the phone was a huge dissapointment. I returned it within two days. The two biggest problems are the vibrate function and the battery life. I need to keep the phone in vibrate mode at work, but the vibrate mode is so low that you cannot feel when you get a message or email, I missed twenty work calls the first day! There is NO setting to increase the power of the vibration and I called tech support and there is no patch or download to improve this function, how could they not put a setting to increase the strength of the vibrate mode! The battery life is very poor, I had to charge it twice a day, AND another person at work sent the Droid back after a week because of the same battery problem. It is a shame, I really like the phone and I am very upset that these two design / engineering flaws were not detected and corrected before it's release. I mean what geniuses test these things before they go out to the public!!
NO BLUETOOTH VOICE DIAL April 29, 2010
This bad boy is not too shabby, unless you want to use it driving. I know in most states that if you are caught with a cell phone in your hand while driving, its a nice little ticket. Well, this puppy does not allow you to use the voice-dial via blue tooth, unless the blue tooth has the names and numbers stored on it. I.E., my car with voice dial, no problem. My Motorola headset, problem. I discovered that little tidbit, and called customer support. They had no idea that you could not use blue tooth voice dial, and said that it would be upgraded soon. I stated that it has been 2 years since the first Android OS on Verizon, and they still have yet to fix the problem. I guess I am just nit-picking, but my phone 5 years ago had that ability, and for a $150 ticket, I would rather buy something that costs more but has the blue tooth voice dial.
Worst smart phone ever! July 10, 2010
Reviewer: Katherine Menges
This is the worst smart phone I've ever purchased. The reception is awful at best, even with full signal. I'm lucky if I catch every other word during a conversation. The battery life is horrible, even after turning off the gps and 3g. It drops calls all the time and my cheek constantly hits the mute button. I've replaced this phone and still have the same issues. The only nice features are the navigation, and some other google aps. I would not recommend this phone to anyone.
Amazon please get the Droid X. July 16, 2010
Reviewer: Lena B. Pierce
I have been hoping Amazon will get the Droid X. Hopefully soon they will have it. The droid x is the same price currently for the Incredible, why buy the step down when you could get the X.
Horrible battery life, screen cracks very easily June 21, 2010
Reviewer: B. Penn (Naperville, IL) -
I owned an iPhone for 3+ years and decided to switch to the Droid Incredible under Verizon after my reception with AT&T caused me to drop calls on my iPhone pretty much every time I placed a call. I've owned the Droid for three weeks. The battery life is horrible. I charge the phone every night overnight, and with moderate usage, the battery gets me through about 6:00 p.m. if I don't charge mid-day. I had to install an app called Advanced Task Killer Free (this was Verizon's solution to help extend the battery life#. Now, every time I use my phone, I have to launch Advanced Task Killer and kill all of the background tasks/apps that are running. While it only takes a few seconds to do this each time, it becomes very annoying after a while, and feels like it shouldn't be a necessary process when owning a cell phone. But yesterday was the straw that broke the camel's back for me. I had the phone in my back pocket and when I sat down on a park bench, the screen cracked very badly. There is a design flaw in the phone in that the glass plate has a small hole/circle where the joystick device sits towards the bottom of the phone. This causes the strength of the glass to have a weak point. The cracks in my screen #7 total) all originate from the joystick circle. I am switching back to AT&T and iPhone and ditching the Droid. The quality is nowhere near that of an iPhone. I will deal with AT&T's coverage issues instead - the grass is NOT greener!
Worst invention since the atom bomb September 3, 2010
Reviewer: William Yate (Santa Cruz, CA) -
This phone has caused me more aggravation even than any computer I've ever owned, and that's saying something. I've started more than one friendship through mutual complaints about this horrible, malicious, lazy device. It must be sentient because no inanimate object could be so consistently, incorrigibly, contemptuously defiant. Basically I got it because Verizon is the better service, but I'm beginning to think I'll take the hit in reception and get an iPhone. Be part of the market response to a scam and refuse to buy this insult.
No way to filter android market... June 4, 2010
There are too many porn apps in the android market and they are imbedded in every category. They do not provide a separate "Adult Content" category for this. To report these apps as inappropriate is futile since there are so many of them. There is no way to put a filter on the phone to keep this stuff out. The response on Android Market's forums regarding this topic has been insensitive and foolish. Someone brazenly commented that a better phone for people like me would be an iPhone. I can't even find a place to filter my internet content on this phone also. Buyer beware. Oh, and there are applications you can buy outside of the Android Market site that provide parental controls for a subscription FEE. Apparently I have to pay for my right to NOT LOOK at this trash. I am repulsed enough to cancel my Verizon account and return this phone.
Can use this phone! June 11, 2010
Reviewer: Sober Sue "Sober sue" (Duarte, CA United States) -
We purchased two droids with high hopes. My husband loves his. I do not. After going back everyday for a week to Verizon they are telling me that my finger tempature is to high and doesn't work well with the touchscreen pad. Funny I'm typing this on my new IPad. I'm taking back my droid and I've already gone back to my Blackberry. Bummer. Very disappointed
Sad in LA
Broken - Doesn't turn on. June 5, 2010
Reviewer: A. Geib
Not sure what went wrong but phone booted to activate it and then after first over night charge it doesn't boot anymore. I'm not really that upset at the phone not working as much as having to wait another 1 - 3 weeks for replacement. It's the service between all parties that I am giving a one star (HTC, Amazon, and Verizon).
As for the phone it looked great. I will give an update when I get one that works.
No bluethooth voice dialing April 29, 2010
Reviewer: Yankydime "yankydime" (Fayetteville, Ga.) -
Great looking phone and camera, BUT....
Can't use Bluetooth handset for voice dialing (jawbone icon).
With this latest and greatest phone you would think it would have this feature standard, but unfortunately not. I called HTC support and they said all their DROIDS aren't capable of this. So what's the point? This is a deal breaker for me. I do a lot of driving so this is a must for hands free. So I guess this puppy is going back and continue using my old and trusty KRAVE. If anyone has any ideas(besides more apps), please comment.
Garbage when compared to the Apple iPhone! June 10, 2010
Reviewer: Dean Krouse "Dean812" (Atlantic City, NJ) -
I used this phone from a friend who had it and was trying to sell it and so I looked at it, played around with it and my feelings about this phone are that it is, like most other "touch" controlled cell phones that it is simply trying hard to be an iPhone. It offers nothing original next to the much more intuitive and easy to use iPhone. The menus system on this phone is confusing and nothing like the iPhone. zThe iPhone right now is the best smartphone ever offered commercially. Like the rest if the "touch" smart-phones fall far behind the iPhone. Android platform is just so wreak and with only few thousand worthless applications does not stack up to the 200,000 different Apps you get for the iPhone.
Advice, don't waste you money on this phone. Get with the leading edge iPhone. The iPhone 4 comes out late June, wait until then and really get a smartphone that multitasks even better than the currently available iPhone 3GS. If anyone disagrees with what I have written, they just don't know what the iPhone offers in comparison to this wanna-be.
Not impressed May 3, 2010
Reviewer: D. Kustu
I got to play with it a little bit today and I am certainly not impressed. I am going to wait out for the new iPhone this summer. I think people's reviews are fairly accurate but this phone does not bring anything new to the table. I will get the new OS for my 3GS iPhone (which puts it at par with Droid's OS capabilities) and see what magic Mr. Jobs will bring to us this summer. I am just not impressed being a bit on the geeky side, but otherwise solid phone.
