    It's nice that vzw is getting more NFC devices.

    Rezound $80
    Inc4G $150 (after rebate)

    hmmmm...

    I'd take the Rezound. I had the Inc2 and loved it, but I'd rather have the Rezound.

    Edit: the rezound is back to $199. i'd still take the Rezound. we will get ICS so no worries.

    I actually like this... I know people could care less for this phone and still take the Rezound... but I for one like the smaller sized screen phones at 4".
    When i got the Thunderbolt last year, i was starting to regret the giant size of it. I think I only managed to jump into the Nexus because of its light size.

    Seeing how many problems I had with both my Rezounds, this can't be any worse.

    Is this the same screen as the One X? If so that's an improvement from the Rezound. Not taking about screen res. I actually don't care about screen res after comparing phones with different screen res. Wanna see how that S4 does for battery life. Looking around...its the same screen as the Rezound....but a lower screen res? They could have at least put a Super LCD2 on it. Will see it person before passing judgement on the screen tho.

    +1 for a nice 4" LTE phone. My daughter was looking for exactly that last week. She had a choice of 1 phone - the LG Lucid. (LG what?) This is a nice addition to Verizon's lineup.

    Having owned both the Dinc and the Dinc2 and loving them both I would definitely get this phone if I didn't have my Rezound. I've always had good luck with HTC phones.

    There is zero specs that are "Incredible" about this phone! It should have atleast been comparable to the One X. Sigh, my Dinc1 and Dinc2 are still more Incredible.:disappointed:

    Exactly.. The only thing the Rezound has is a bigger better screen... The S4 in this will smoke the Rezound..

    Not everyone needed 4G

    I had the Inc2 and it was universally reviewed to be fast and most people wouldnt tell the difference between that and a dual core.

    Thats fine. But...for someone to say this:
    It is kinda odd to say a phone that has a faster internet connection, more screen res., bigger stock battery, more ram and a newer and should be better cpu/gpu than the Dinc 1 AND 2 is...nothing? Thats the post those 2 were responding to... It might not be the One X spec for spec....but its nothing to sneeze at either. I would gladly take it if its offered by Verizon. Actually....since I dont want all Moto phones on my family plan...I might get this and the GS3...along with whatever Moto has coming soon.

    Since it's only been 12 days since my daughter got her LG Lucid (she didn't want anything bigger than a 4" screen) I think I may go in tomorrow to return it and get her the Incredible 4G.
