    thanks for the link... engadget put up a decent review... but maybe they could've tested the phone for an extra day... seems like they wrote that up a few hours after getting the phone, haha

    Better than a stock Droid? I would guess maybe due to the tighter integration and tweaks in Sense UI + Android 2.1. As for better than a Droid after the Droid is rooted? I would have to say no to that. In any case both phones stand on their own merit and the Droid still has a ton to offer as well when compared to the Incredible.
    OG Droid w/ Pete's GPA16 w/ stock Kernel using auto OC script. (retired)

    LG G2X w/ rooted 2.3.3 leak.

    It's OK for your Droid to be different. Just be supportive and reassuring and it will do just fine. It's when you or other people point at it or mock it for being different is when its' feelings get hurt. Just show it unconditional love regardless of its' differences and it will in turn reciprocate that love and loyalty.

    Man i have been having problems trying to log in. WTH?
    Anyways, on this post I was actually kinda surprised that they did such an review after just a few hours.
    And to make such bold statements right off the top?

    Reviews like that make me think 'payoff'. I didnt see one negative remark on the thing at all and I can always find at least one thing.
    *Disclaimer: I tend to speak what pops in my head immediately when it happens. As a result when I type it, the idea sounds great.. more often than not I realize after the fact that I was incorrect or shoot down my own theories. Flaming me does no good as I most likely have done it myself already.

    looks like a good review to me. it shouldn't really take that long to review this phone seeing as they have extensive experience with android 2.1 via the droid, nexus, desire, and legend. maybe not completely objective, but they are contrasting it against all the aforementioned phones which also got very good reviews...

    the things they did point out that may become more glaring issues...battery life is worse than the nexus? which already has questionable battery life (ugh)...screen viewing in bright sunlight, a known issue with amoled...lack of dedicated camera button (a convenience on the droid)...the contoured back may be a love or hate, they say it actually is a bit functional, guess we'll see...they didn't mention if the camera glass was flush with the camera bezel, if so that will be a problem with scratches and/or dings.

    all in all it looks like the incredible will be a very good android phone worth taking a look at. the nexus is more evenly paired when it comes to form factor and features, but the droid has a few features that it just can't match. the droid has a keyboard, automatic launch of navigation when in car dock, dedicated camera button, and solid build quality. looking forward to trying out the incredible though.

    Not seeing it is better (ATM), due to a few key issues that are common in other reviews of Inc:

    1. Two bars less signal than Droid & dancing bars (the phone function is important, of course)
    2. Battery life is significantly less than Droid
    3. Internal space can not be read by apps

    The signal issue is a killer for me. I may get the Droid, especially since will likely be free with two year contract, at end of month.

    You might want to try re-reading the review.

    "...Because these displays are the same, it means they share the same issues; we disliked the color intensity on the Incredible just as we did on the Nexus One. Reds and oranges, in particularly, look overwhelmingly saturated here, and other colors aren't truly represented. It's just too colorful, if you can believe it. Another somewhat major issue that we struggled with on the Incredible (just as we did on the Nexus One) was the awful screen visibility in bright daylight. We had numerous occasions where we simply could not answer a call or take a picture due to the AMOLED display's poor showing outdoors. In overcast settings (such as the one above) it was usually bearable, and If you crank the brightness all the way up on sunnier days you can get some visibility, though once you're outside and can't see the display, that's a bit of a challenge. In all honesty, we love certain aspects of these screens, but we're perplexed as to why HTC continues to use this same display when it's clear the daylight performance is hamstrung..."
