    Miss my Moto Droid but Inc is cool too... what a chick magnet;;

    I miss my Droid, but understand the advantages if Inc and learning to adapt.

    I miss the solid as a rock, yes read that heavier feel of Droid, but also appreciate the easier in out of the pocket deal with the Inc.

    Love the additional home screens.

    Speed rocks.

    Miss the BATTERY LIFE of the Droid, but will pay for an amped up battery when it is available.

    Weather on screen is cool. Still use Weatherbug elite when it really matters.

    Oh yea did I mention the battery life. :)

    Love the photo and video quality. Best on cellphone as I see it.

    I want a real rubberized case to add that sure as help I got a grip on it feel.

    Oh yea did I mention the chicks including the grandmas dig the red if you leave the battery case cover off???

    Look forward to the thrashing....

    Bring it on...

    I switched to the leaked version of 1.0 before I got the Incredible, and the battery life was quite good. 0.9 was horrible though.

    The battery life on the Incredible isn't nearly as bad as a lot of people have said, but I'm definitely going to get an extended version (had one for the Droid too).

    No thrashing. The Droid is (was?) a great phone! I use the "gradient" snap on case for my DI. It's not available online, yet. You have to call vzw and ask for it. It's BEAUtiful. It's like the hard red case but it changes color toward the top to black. It accents the phone wonderfully. The feel is solid and it doesn't feel slippery at all. It's well made. If you want more info. PM me or catch anyone of us at the irc chat channel below. Quite a few of us have it.

    loving my INC even though i had to swap it out twice.

    Mot was great but the INC is better. The way I used my droid i was always charging it so same here. i will get a backup battery as well and be good 2 go.

    i just hope the INC dock has a spot for the backup battery the MOt dock didnt.

    SR: Why did you have to swap it out twice? Or did I already know that? Sorry if you're repeating yourself here.

    My phone has actually been off the charger for over 24 hours and I still have around 30% battery life left. When I first got the inc it would only last 5-8 hours.

    I also had to return my Incredible. The reception was horrible and i heard an echo in the ear piece. the new one is good to go. I do miss the Moto droid. But the Incredible is definitely a step up.

    i am a news junkie and for real time events...

    I found in app store FREE Scanner Radio....

    I was able to listen to real time events as they unfolded in the poor city of Nashville as the sad but dramatic floods engulfed the city.

    National coverage and really cool.

    One had issues with the headset jack [turns out they all] it doesnt turn the audio off when u get a notification even with headphones you need to put it on vibrate as well.

    2nd one had a scratch on the camera area.

    The only thing I miss about my moto Droid is the desktop dock and the car mount. I use the phone for gps a lot so I need the mount. I also prefer the stock Google car home over the sense one.

    Well, in general people will push whatever their using and say it's the best. Let's face it, this new technology is moving very fast. You can't think that in 6 months (or less) that the phone you are using will still be the best. No phone is perfect, the INC is a better version of the MDroid I had, IMHO. A year from now I will be looking at another updated version to buy. My Incredible is nice" to look at, I have great phone call quality, Internet, Apps, Music, Camera/Video, this phone is amazing and does most things really well. Oh, did I mention how "FAST" this phone is. ;) I think I will be happy for a bit that's for sure, and I get bored easily.
