    I returned my incredible today... bitter sweet.

    Back to my Droid. I never really came to love the Incredible like I do my Moto Droid for some reason. The sense widgets were so good, but I hated them for some reason. I think it kind of took away from the customization of my phone. I felt almost like when I had my iPhone, like it was already set for me.

    What I miss... that amazing camera, speed (rooted and over-clocked is not faster), and my htc widgets. But I'm super happy to have my droid back!

    How can the widgets be "so good" but you hated them?!?!?!
    What did you hate about them.

    I made the switch from Moto droid to the Drinc and I am very happy so far.

    Moved thread to reduce any possible flaming. OP has a Droid now, better to discuss that switch here in the General Forum then the Incredible General Forum.

    Welcome back nerdkill......

    Yeah the Moto Droid community is omnipotent : )

    There's a great deal of support and development going on and it's always very exciting.

    Not to take away from the Incredible but it's pretty much what you see is what you get.

    Thats not necessarily a bad thing because some people LOVE Sense and are satisfied with it. It's all about preference......

    wow... why would people flame over buying another droid? i really feel like this place is infested with 7 year olds and over protective parents.

    as far as the widgets go... they were really clean and worked well. However, they weren't customizable at all. they would generally either take up too much of my screen, or they would be horizontal and not vertical like i wanted them. when you use helix launcher you lose all of your sense widgets and feel like you're missing out on other stuff whenever you use your phone.

    i remembered some other things i didn't like. signal bars. i never had any problems with actually dropping calls, but it's a known problem that it doesn't show the correct amount of bars. i've been trained for too long to look at signal bars. i also didn't like that i never felt comfortable putting the phone down. it either rests on the camera eye or the screen.

    finally... i tried out the incredible because it looked like and is an awesome phone. i miss it.

    Did you try removing sense and just running vanilla android?

    I tried the phone out in the store, I'm recommending it to my sister (she has an upgrade due friday). I couldn't buy one because it wasn't in stock (must be popular), but I did think about it. The only thing I didn't like about it was that it felt almost too light in my hand. Now that I am used to the relatively heavy weight of the droid, I have a feeling that I am going to struggle to find a phone that doesn't feel too light when the time comes for a replacement.
