    They pretty much give all of the positives of phones even if the phone isn't popular. Unless they are doing a comparison between two phones. They pretty much said the Droid X wrecks iPhone in their Droid X V.S. iPhone video lol.

    Haha... I don't see why everyone gives a huge fuss over the iPhone... it's a decent phone, definitely not perfect, but decent. It's not magical or revolutionary like Engadget claims lol.

    yes, but if the specs are very similar (?) then it would be no problem to run the new sense on my incredible if it can get ported. or just use one of the sense hd roms that already exist for the incredible. (and it should run just as fast as on this if the specs are the same (besides screen and ram)


    also, i dont think its fair to say this phone is a failure. yes it doesnt have the front camera, but it will still be fast and have a great screen and a very nice looking shape. also, seidio will make a battery for it that will help a ton there. (i have a seidio slim for my incredible and it makes a great difference)

    You know I was just comparing pics of the Desire HD with the leaked pics of the supposed Verizon Incredible HD version....if you look at both phones with the screen facing down, they look very different in the way you would get to the battery and SD card. The Desire HD has two different compartments to access both. But if you look at the pics of the Incredible HD the kickstand, it makes the design look very different. To me it looks like the Incredible HD may just have a one piece design to get to the battery and SD card, hopefully with that said it may come with a bigger battery in this newest incarnation. HTC may have addressed this shortcoming with the underpowered battery for all we know. Don't count this phone out yet!!

    I noticed that, too. The darker grey metal looks like the piece you remove to get to the battery/SD card.

    Yeah, there is a 2nd gen snapdragon in this. The same in the G2 (but better) which has been overclocked from 800Mhz to 1400Mhz.

    WAAYYY more ram than someone should need.

    A beautiful new 4.3 in screen.

    Android 2.2 w/ Sense 2.5.

    Plus, with the pics we get tonight from our good friend miami, we will be able to tell better about things like a kickstand, a ffc, etc.

    And, maybe VZW snuck a different battery in this one, or maybe the body on this one will be easier to make an extended battery + case for.

    Either way, I AM getting the Inc HD when it comes around. Phone has a ton of potential. Even with temp root I will easily be happy with this phone.. I can already tell.

    You know Tank with the way this phone flys with that newer processor and the slick new Sense with all those different themes, I really don't even see a need to root it. I rooted my Droid 1 to make it faster, but geeze how much faster does this thing really need to be pushed? I will be happy with it just the way it is!! Let's all hope Nov. 23 is the true date cause my D1 is getting old...lol

    I like true themes, plus neat little features. AND, if we get nand unlock, we could get aosp roms, which would be a huge plus for me. Just a few things i'd like to see happen. Won't ruin the phone for me though.

    True dat Tank...it IS fun to flash Roms with my D1 and have the cool root features. I will definitely be happy just to have root with the Incredible HD though. But of course being able to flash a Rom on it in time would be a huge plus! lol

    And I was just about to upgrade to the Dinc on Friday. Waiting another month or so wont hurt. THe Dinc HD sounds like its a sure bet.

    I'm not to impressed with this phone at all. I like the body but where the battery is located.....I'm not to sure about that.

    Not my cup of tea. Great write up though
